    The nice things about knowing nothing about college players is I do not get mad when the team takes someone else....I do not know what a reach is...and when the player works out I am about as happy as I can be.

    I was impressed with him when he was a complimentary piece to Bouye. However, I’ve been pleased with what I’ve seen from him.

    He has the chance to be a really good player

    Saw some statistics that might be encouraging.

    With the glaring exception of the Steelers game, Ojemudia is averaging:

    16.4 snaps per reception (3rd in the NFL)
    7.7 snaps per target (24th)
    0.48 yards allowed per coverage snap (1st)
    57.5 passer rating against (6th)

    So basically opposing QBs are targeting our rookie 3rd round pick from Iowa-- however, he is not giving up many receptions on those targets. Yes, the Steelers game was quite ugly-- but even then, one could cite Claypool's push-off, the near INT, etc. as justification for why even that game wasn't all that bad for Ojemudia.

    With Bouye coming back within the next couple of weeks, he should take a ton of pressure off of Ojemudia. Through four games, I would say the rookie has fared about as well as one could hope given the circumstances of an abbreviated offseason and weathering injuries to key defensive starters early on. I expect Ojemudia to improve as the season goes on, but there will definitely still be some rough moments as per usual for any rookie corner. In Fangio's two years here, there is a reason why Ojemudia has been his highest-drafted defensive player yet. His length, physicality, and smarts will take him a long way in this defense. We've seen the likes of Kyle Fuller, Prince Amukamara, and Bryce Callahan excel with Fangio/Donatell-- I think Ojemudia has the upside to be better than all of them. Time will only tell but I am excited for the future of our secondary here.
    There will be ups and downs with any young player. I am very pleased with what the rook has done so far.

    He picks Ben and they don’t reverse his pick against Tennessee on a weak unnecessary roughness on Alexander Johnson we are probably sitting at 3-1. Oh well, look forward to seeing him get his first pick ( soon!!!!!!)

    I am A Big Time Fan Of Mike O. He plays like a Veteran out there and before Long he will be a True Shut Down Corner Back I actually see shades of Champ Bailey I would not be surprised if Champ is not coaching him up.

    All the CBs took on additional responsibilities and pressure with Bouye going down to injury. Changes everything when your #1 is missing.

    Broncos also have that same issue at pass rusher, DT, WR, RT, QB and arguably RB.

    Shocking when you look at the overall depth chart with the injury issues.

    He should grow if bausby can stay healthy we may have a hugely underrated cb room. Either way we need to fix the oline and get some speed next to johnson at ilb

    Yea but looking at all 4 games, I only say one game where he played real bad. However, we are asking a lot for a rookie to come in. He has three very good chances of getting an INT. Two of they get should have had but dropped an easy ball. My hope is he doesn’t lose confidence throughout this season because he’s going to get burned at times.

    He does look really good.

    I am very excited to see this team continue to develop with Elway/Fangio growing this excellent foundation they've put together into the future. We've got good material.

    Crossing my fingers that Britany Bowlen can take the reigns soon and clear away this uncertainty in the ownership position which is hurting us greatly.

    started a topic Michael Ojemudia is a very good CB

    Michael Ojemudia is a very good CB

    I know he has had his struggles early in the season but that's expected by any rookie player but I love what I see from this guy. I love how he looks for the ball in the air during deep balls. He will only get better as the season progresses. He should have more INT than what he has now. One was overturned due to a penalty and the other was dropped. I see a pick six in the future,
Working...
