Things are winding down at the NFL Combine this afternoon, and some of the numbers are in on Penn State’s last participant, cornerback Amani Oruwariye.

Here’s what he has done:


Amani Oruwariye

Bench press

17 reps (t5)

40-yard dash

4.47 seconds (t12)

Vertical jump

36.5 inches (t17)

Broad jump

120 inches (t22)

3-cone drill


20-yard shuttle


60-yard shuttle


All in all, solid so far for Oruwariye. There are some drills that are more important for some prospects than they are others.

For Oruwariye, I’d guess a lot of scouts and general managers were looking at the bench press and the 40-yard dash. He’s a bigger, stronger guy. So, the bench will tell you where he compares there. But, of course, you also have to show when you’re big and strong that you can run a solid time. Which, he did.

It’s going to be a really interesting debate about which Penn State player will be the first selected next month. Oruwariye might be the favorite, but Connor McGovern is going to be in the mix there, and I wouldn’t fall asleep on Miles Sanders, either.
