Pos: 
Physical corner with nice size and upside potential. Quick, explosive and plays with great suddenness. Physical, mixes it up with receivers throughout their routes and stays on their hips out of breaks. Strong, rarely challenged by opponents and beats down receivers to defend throws. Fires to the ball out of his plant, has a quick closing burst and sells out to make plays. Quick up the field to defend screen passes and running plays and is a secure open-field tackler.
Neg: 
Must improve his backpedal and transition. Tends to lose receivers in the first five yards. Inconsistent and even struggled during Senior Bowl practices.
Analysis: 
Oruwariye has the measurables and ball skills to be a starter at the next level but needs to polish his game and improve his fundamentals. He should see the field in nickel situations early in his NFL career and has the tools to develop into a starter on Sundays.
