2021 Fantasy Outlook
Detroit's 2019 fifth-round pick, Oruwariye entered the 2020 campaign in the shadow of 2021 No. 3 overall pick Jeff Okudah, not to mention free-agent prize Desmond Trufant. However, as both Okudah and Trufant struggled to stay healthy, Oruwariye quietly turned into an every-down player and ultimately logged 100 percent of the defensive snaps in 10 of 16 games. While his resulting stats weren't IDP worthy and he graded much better in zone coverage than man, he figures to continue to be a large part of Detroit's plans at cornerback, even if a new coaching staff gives Quinton Dunbar the starting job at cornerback opposite Okudah.
