Jeff Okudah suffers injury during NFL Scouting Combine
Former Ohio State cornerback and one of the top prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft, Jeff Okudah, suffered an injury during the Scouting Combine, cutting his time on the field short.
According to NFL Network, Okudah jumped to catch a pass with the ball at his highest point. On the way down, Okudah stumbled awkwardly and his head hit the turf at Lucas Oil Stadium. He withdrew from the rest of the position drills.
Okudah posted a 4.48 time in the 40-yard dash and hit 11 reps on the bench press.
Several outlets have Okudah ranked as one of the top five prospects available in the 2020 NFL Draft, and he’s regarded as the top corner of the class. The injury shouldn’t hurt his draft stock come April.
Okudah will also have time to recover and train for Ohio State’s Pro Day, set for March 25. He’ll be able to participate in drills he did not complete while in Indianapolis.
