With the 29th overall pick in the 2017 CSC community mock draft, the Green Bay Packers select....

Chidobe Awuzie, CB, Colorado (6-foot, 190-pounds)

The Packers had two major issues last year: Running the ball and defending the pass. With the top four running backs off of the board at this point, it only makes sense to look for a cornerback. Luckily, the cornerback class is incredibly deep this year, and there is still valuable DBs on the board even as several have been taken in this mock.

Chidobe Awuzie has the size and length to be a very good outside corner in the NFL. He's shown good speed and great jam at the line to disrupt receivers. With seven sacks over his final two seasons at Colorado, he also offers a lot of value as a slot blitzer at the next level. Shows very good technique tackling and takes great angles. Packers fans should be very pleased if they end up with a kid like Awuzie to help fix a bleeding secondary. Awuzie should fit wherever the Packers see a fit for him, and he can come in and make an immediate impact.
