PFF tabs two former B1G stars as biggest winners from pro day performances
With no NFL Scouting Combine being hosted this year, there was only one opportunity for former college stars to improve their draft stock. Two B1G players took advantage of their pro day.
Pro Football Focus tabbed two former B1G players as the two biggest winners from their respective pro days. Penn State defensive end Jayson Oweh and Ohio State linebacker Baron Browning were ranked in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, respectively.
How it will affect their draft stock later this month among scouts is yet to be determined. But both Oweh and Browning turned some heads.

Both Oweh and Browning might’ve made themselves a little extra money by these strong showings. It’ll be fun to see where each player is selected when the draft starts later this month.
The 2021 NFL Draft is scheduled for Thursday, April 29-Saturday, May 1.
