FOX college football analyst lists Jayson Oweh among 5 most impressive pro day performances
With no NFL Scouting Combine this year, college football players had just one opportunity to improve their stock before the draft. Some took advantage of their pro days in a big way.
FOX college football analyst RJ Young created a list of the five most impressive pro day performances this year. On that list was one B1G name: Penn State defensive end Jayson Oweh.
The former Nittany Lion turned heads with an impressive time in the 40-yard dash and his vertical jump. He could have propelled himself into a lock for the first round, though some still believe he could be a Day 2 pick.
Below is Young’s complete Top 5:

Oweh ended the year with 38 tackles, including 6.5 for loss. He didn’t record a sack and was only credited with 1 quarterback hurry and 1 pass break-up during Penn State’s 4-5 campaign. That might be a concern for some scouts, but the defensive lineman showed just how athletic he is on the field.
In three seasons at Penn State, Oweh collected 13.5 tackles for loss, 7 sacks, 3 quarterback hurries and 2 forced fumbles. He has great potential, and he proved that in a big way during his pro day.
