Jayson Oweh shows up big at Penn State's pro day
Jayson Oweh might’ve helped himself more than most during Penn State’s pro day on Thursday.
The former Penn State defensive lineman turned plenty of heads during his pro day, posting impressive numbers in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump and broad jump. He has been considered a monster athlete, but his numbers during the 2020 season raised some questions.
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.
Here are some highlights from Oweh’s pro day:

That performance will capture the attention of plenty of scouts. The ex-Nittany Lion may see a big bump in his draft projections after this kind of performance.
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.
