So he can play both and shows the jam and good pressman coverage.
The knock I have saw is he can get out of control tackling but has been highly productive tackling.
What I take from looking at a number of the reports is he can play press man and zone, may be better at zone right now but has the jam and mirror ability to stay with a WR in man from either side of the field and the slot.
Productive tackler that also rushes the passer well from the slot. And plays well on specail teams. Smooth in his transition and has closing speed. On top of that SMART 35 wonderlic and very coachable.
Tested better then a lot of early reports thought.
The other thing I will bring up is his position coach with the Packers does a great job developing his players.
You get to the end of the first the players you are going to have available will all have worts, so the value of position flexibility and the high end movement skills of Awuzie and the ability to play in multiple systems you can see why I do like him and have him as one of the top possible picks for the Packers.
