Strong Points: Height and length. Strong hands and impressive ball skills (8 career INTs). Stays low in his pedal and can turn. Transition skills are good. Best as an off-man and zone cover man but can play press. Not a burner but quick and sudden.

Weak Points: Lean frame -- must add strength and bulk. Struggles when taking on blocks, often getting overpowered. More of a grab tackler than a face-up hitter. Misses too many tackles. Aggressiveness stands to improve. Does not attack in run support and often waits for plays to come to him.

The Way We See It: Oruwariye, a fifth-year senior who already graduated, started two seasons, mainly playing on the short side of the field. Tall, lean build with good quickness and adequate speed. He is best in off and zone coverage but can press if needed, just not with a strong jam. In off and zone, he shows good awareness and anticipation. Plays a steady game but not as aggressive as we'd like. That's partially the result of a strength deficiency. Must get off blocks better and become a more reliable tackler. If Oruwariye expects to be more than a backup in the NFL, these issues must be fixed. Lacks upside as special-teams contributor at this time. Unless he tests off the charts at the combine, I don't see him going before Day 3.
