Azeez Ojulari, Georgia

40-yard dash 4.60 seconds

Matt Miller says: "A first-step nightmare for offensive tackles, Ojulari might debut as a situational pass-rusher but has the tools to become a very good three-down player in the mold of a Harold Landry-type outside linebacker."

Jayson Oweh, Penn State

AP_20333773875005

Drill Result
Bench press 21 reps
40-yard dash 4.39 seconds
Broad jump 134 inches
Vertical jump 40 inches
3-cone drill 6.84 seconds

Matt Miller says: "Jayson Oweh's 4.36 speed at 6'5" and 257 pounds is unreal. And yes, detractors will point out he didn't have a sack in 2020, but he produced just fine in 2019 in a 'normal' season."
