ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos added to their secondary in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft by selecting cornerback Michael Ojemudia with the 77th-overall pick.
"It really is a dream come true," Ojemudia said. "When I saw the [Colorado] area code pop up on my phone, my heart dropped because I feel like that's the perfect place for me. Just all the stars aligned with this pick."
Ojemudia appeared in 51 career games during his four seasons at Iowa and made 22 starts.
He was a third-team All-Big Ten selection in 2019 and led the Hawkeyes in passes defensed and interceptions.
"I plan to [be] just a hard-nosed, physical guy," Ojemudia said Friday. "A guy who makes plays. A guy who's going to set the tone every time he's out there. I'm definitely going to bring some grittiness to that DB room."
Ojemudia started two seasons for Iowa and is a 6-foot, 200-pound player.
