Pac-12 Players Who Improved their Draft Stock:
Levi Onwuzurike - UW DL
Onwuzurike proved he is one of the most athletic defensive linemen in the draft with 29 bench press reps and a 4.85 40 yard dash while measuring 6-3 290. With his performance, it is likely he becomes the first interior DL selected in the Draft.
Joe Tryon - UW DE
Joe Tryon already possessed elite size at 6-5 259 and proved he can provider serious speed off the edge with a 4.64 40 yard dash.
Nahshon Wright - Oregon State CB
Nahshon Wright is one of the most intriguing prospects in the Draft as a 6-4 Corner which immediately should draw attention to him. Then he ran a 4.46 40 yard dash and now every NFL team is going to look deeper into his film. The Seattle Seahawks love corners with with Wright's traits and could be a good fit for him.
Paulson Adebo - Stanford CB
Adebo has been a top performing Pac-12 CB for awhile and cemented himself as a likely 1st/2nd round NFL pick with an outstanding Pro Day. The 6-1 corner ran a 4.42 40 yard dash and a 6.70 3 cone.
Walker Little - Stanford OL
Walker Little has prototypical size at 6-7 313 and proved he has above average athleticism as well. Little was in the 83rd percentile in Broad Jump, 82nd percentile in the Short Shuttle and 89th percentile in the 3 cone.
Drew Dalman - Stanford OL
Dalman is undersized at 6-1 299 and that will likely impact where he gets drafted but a strong athletic showing should increase his draft stock. Dalman had a freakish 33 inch vertical, 33 bench press reps, 5.11 40 yard dash and 7.33 3 cone.
Penei Sewell - Oregon OL
Sewell is slightly on the shorter side for an OT but has plenty of strength as he did 30 reps on the bench press and was in the 77th percentile in the broad jump. His 5.09 40 yard dash at 331 pounds should raise eyebrows as well.
Jevon Holland - Oregon S
After sitting out last season, Jevon reminded everyone why some had him as a first round pick last fall, showing off a 4.46 40 yard dash time in his pro day.
Hamilcar Rashed Jr - Oregon State DE
Whoever drafts this sleeper will get a steal after showing off his 36” vertical and a 4.58 40 yard dash.
Simi Fehoko - Stanford WR
Fehoko posted an incredible 4.37 40 time which will surely turn eyes with the 6’4” 227 frame that he has.
Alijah Vera-Tucker - USC OL
Vera-Tucker had a strong 36 reps on the bench press and a 5.10 40 time. Many think he will be selected in the middle of the 1st round.
Roy Lopez - Arizona DL
Roy Lopez didn't get the respect he deserved for how dominant he was last season but at his Pro Day he showed off his impressive strength with 36 reps on the bench and a 31 inch vertical.
