Lions select CB Amani Oruwariye in fifth round of 2019 NFL Draft

In the fifth round, with the 146th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions selected CB Amani Oruwariye out of Penn State.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior was a projected second round pick that slid way down the board.

In his career, he allowed a 66.6 passer rating, 106 tackles, eight interceptions, and 20 pass deflections. In 2018, he was first team All-B1G.

At the combine, he ran an impressive 4.47 40 yard dash, 36.5-inch vertical and 6.82-second three cone. The potential is there for Oruwariye to be the corner opposite of CB Darius Slay long term.
