Playing in the B1G, Jeff Okudah has played against his fair share of talented wide receivers. But there’s one that has stood out among the rest.
On Friday, the former Ohio State cornerback talked with the media during the NFL Scouting Combine, and was asked which receiver earned Okudah’s respect as the best he’s ever played. That player was former Wisconsin wideout Quintez Cephus.
Okudah went on to say that he doesn’t really care what results Cephus posts during the NFL Combine, the ex-Badgers is extremely talented.
Jeff Okudah just said the best receiver he faced was Wisconsin’s Quintez Cephus — “I don’t care what his 40 time was.”

That’s pretty high praise, considering the level of competition Ohio State has played. Not only is the B1G loaded with talent, the Buckeyes have played the likes of Clemson and Washington in bowl games recently.
Cephus finished the 2019 season with 59 catches for 901 yards and seven touchdowns. He’s attempting to improve his draft stock during this week in Indianapolis.
