Jeffery Okudah, CB, Ohio State
The star of the class, Okudah showcased once again why he is thought of as the number one cornerback prospect, and a likely top-five selection in the 2020 NFL Draft. Although his workout was cut short for precautionary reasons following an awkward fall early on in the session, Okudah was able to complete his athletic testing, and performed exceptionally.
Athletically? Okudah was a star. After measuring in at 6-1, 205 pounds, the former Ohio State product put up a respectable time in the 40-yard dash at 4.48 seconds, with gaudy numbers in the vertical (41 inches) and broad jump (135 inches).
With a vertical jump of 41 inches, Okudah was posted the third-best score of all time, according to Pro Football Reference. For reference: Ramsey scored a 41.5 inch vertical jump in 2016 at the NFL Combine. Okudah also tied the record for longest broad jump.
