Some were surprised when former University of Colorado cornerback Chidobe Awuzie got an invite to the 2017 NFL Draft. As it turns out, he will not be alone.
According to Denver7’s Troy Renck, CU coach Mike MacIntyre is also heading to Philadelphia for the Draft.
Awuzie is one of 22 players that will be in attendance. Following a strong showing at the NFL Scouting Combine, he has skyrocketed up draft boards, in terms of projections. Now, he is projected to go in either the first or second round.
MacIntyre’s career in Boulder has coincided with that of Awuzie. Both of them came to campus in 2013. Under MacIntyre, Awuzie was second-team All-Pac-12 in 2015 and first-team All-Pac-12 in 2016.
