Makes second-year leap
CBDetroit Lions
January 15, 2021
Oruwariye recorded 53 tackles, seven pass breakups and one interception over 16 games in 2020.
ANALYSIS
After topping 75 percent of the defensive snaps in three games as a rookie, Oruwariye played a much bigger role in 2020 and saw 100 percent of the snaps in nine of 16 games. As his playing time increased, so did his production, and the physical second-year pro ultimately finished with the most tackles and pass breakups amongst Lions cornerbacks. Still under contract for cheap through 2022, there's no question Oruwariye will be back as a key cog for the Detroit defense ahead of the 2021 campaign.
