After falling out of the first round in several mock drafts, Emmanuel Ogbah made a big time statement at the NFL Scouting Combine.
First off, he clocked a 4.63 in the 40-yard dash. That's stupid fast for someone his size.
Top D-Line Official 40s:— NFL Network (@nflnetwork) February 28, 2016
Charles Tapper, 4.59
Emmanuel Ogbah, 4.63
Kamalei Correa, 4.69
Shaq Lawson, 4.70
Matthew Judon, 4.73#NFLCombine
He had some pretty great numbers all around and was named a "Top Performer" in those three categories.
Ogbah's vertical jump (35.5'') was the second best of all DL at the NFL Combine and his broad jump (121.0) was third. #okstate— Cowboy Football (@CowboyFB) February 28, 2016
The tangibles he showed should improve Ogbah's draft stock and he knows it.
What can I say? God is good!!!! #thankful— Emmanuel Ogbah (@Eman_OSU38) February 28, 2016
Ogbah finished 2015 with 13.0 sacks, 17.5 tackles for loss, 64 tackles, four pass breakups, 19 QB hurries, three forced fumbles and one for a touchdown.
Senior DE Jimmy Bean was in Indianapolis for the Combine but did not participate in Sunday's drills/competition.
Senior corner back Kevin Peterson is scheduled to work out Monday as the defensive backs kick off at 1:00 pm CST on the NFL network.
The first round of the NFL Draft is on April 30 on ESPN.
