BOULDER, Colo. (The Sports Xchange) – Following CU’s 41-38 win over Oregon, two players for the Colorado Buffaloes are featured on NFLDraftScout.com analyst Rob Rang’s prospect takeaways for this week:
– Wide Receiver Bryce Bobo, Colorado, 6-1, 195, Jr. (NFLDraftScout.com overall rating: #48 WR in Class of 2018): Bobo came up with one of the catches of the young season with a twirling one-handed reception in the corner of the end zone that proved to be the game-winner. On the play, he sold the slant before accelerating upfield on a classic “sluggo” route, fooling Oregon defensive back Ugo Amadi.
– Cornerback Chidobe Awuzie, Colorado, 5-11, 205, Sr. (NFLDraftScout.com overall rating: #168, #19 CB): Awuzie shadowed Oregon star Darren Carrington II and provided his typical lockdown coverage, with Carrington’s two touchdowns coming against other defenders. Oregon quarterback Dakota Prukop largely avoided Awuzie, other than a 48-yard reception by Charles Nelson. Even on that well-executed play, Awuzie showed terrific awareness and closing speed.
