    Here’s something to think about regarding Ojemudia, reading over his draft profile there’s a lot of similarities to Richard Sherman coming out of college.

    Fangio coached Sherman in 2010 at Stanford, his best season as a college corner, and likely the reason he’s in the NFL now. I hate to compare Ojemudia to and all-time great, but if Fangio sees similarities to Sherman, maybe we have something here.

    On a more important note, why the hell are we not discussing the elite calibar of names Elway picked up in this most recent draft ? Essang Bassey, Ojemudia, Cushenberry, Agim, Okweugbunam, Strnad, Muti, and Tuszka. Does it get any better ?

    I see him competing for the nickel. How much of a "competition" that ends up being will depend heavily on Callahan's health. Either way, I think you're right- he has a place on the active roster.

    I have:

    LCB Bouye, Yiadom
    RCB Bausby, Ojemudia (pecking order TBD)
    Slot Callahan, Dawson
    S Simmons, Jackson, Marshall

    Think we 10 DB and Harris sticks as a CB/S hybrid. Bassey goes PS and is groomed for slot duty in the future.

    I think Yiadom will make it, his confidence was shot early last season after Waller abused him (he’s a matchup nightmare) but he finished the season relatively better when he wasn’t running into Justin Simmons. He’s an able and willing tackler and contributes on special teams. He’s probably better suited for a safety role where he doesn’t have to turn his back to the ball nearly as much. Marshall, Dawson, and Yiadom will likely be key special teams guys for coverage situations. Davontae Harris is the guy I think is on the outside looking in, but he’s a capable player as well. I think the CB group is a lot better than many think and will surprise a lot of people this year.

    That’s probably the plan but Bausby isn’t going to just hand the spot over. If he’s right mentally I expect him to win that spot ultimately, he breaks on the ball extremely quickly and that’s a huge asset in zone coverage which should result in turnovers.

    Love it. I really believe he will excel.

    That also means we got 3-5 starters from this draft. Jeudy, Cushenberry, and Ojemudia. Then if 11 personnel, Hamler would be considered a starter, and I'm assuming AOK is the #2 TE, making him a starter in 12/22.

    Being a Husker Fan I can assure you he didn't struggle in the NU vs Iowa games the last 2 years tackling or covering. Fangio was quoted in yesterdays article believing he is a good tackler.

    He certainly big enough to be a Safety coverage guy. I loved this pick. Ojemudia has been Iowa's best DB the last 2 years. He is a really, really smart kid too as Samz and Samparnell pointed out earlier. These are the kids you want on your roster.

    Ojemudia’s football knowledge can’t be understated. Going back and watching him I’m not sure I ever saw him execute a speed turn and not be in position. That can be very risky as you lose all sight of the WR and a lot of CBs will use it and be 10 yards away from the WR as he runs a comeback route. That tells me he watches a ton of film and he knows exactly what the rest of his defense is doing and he trusts them to do what they’re supposed to do. This is what made Chris Harris so good during his time here.

    For a young CB to already have that instilled in him is great and from everything I’ve read on him he seems humble and hungry. He’s going to give Bausby everything he can handle for that boundary CB spot. If he doesn’t win it I expect him and Trey Marshall to have a great indirect battle during the season for the TE matchup spot. Will the defense be better with Trey Marshall at SS and Jackson as the matchup guy or will they keep Jackson at S and bring in Ojemudia? Yiadom actually did improve down the stretch after Harris was benched and he comes up in run support so he may actually be a dark horse for that nickel safety spot.

    I think he will a starter at CB on the outside, opposite Bouye, with Callahan(health assumed) coming in as the nickel.

    He has a wealth of experience in zone, doing things similar to what Fangio will ask of him here, and successfully. His lack of history in man coverage caused him to slip in draft rankings, but his scheme fit cannot be denied. I think he will find success earlier than most think and be considered a major steal by this time next year.

    He’s a smart football player with good football awareness if you ask me. I don’t see him as big a reach as everyone else, at worst he’ll be a very solid defender for Denver! Good pick IMO!
    He's a mechanical engineering major at Iowa.
