Taking the next step: OSU graduates show out at Pro Day

Tylan Wallace Pro Day

For the final time Oklahoma State football players heading toward their next steps in their careers were on the field of the Sherman E. Smith Training Center for the OSU Pro Day.

Tylan Wallace, Chuba Hubbard, Amen Ogbongbemiga, Rodarius Williams, Teven Jenkins, Dillon Stoner and some others were in attendance in front of scouts from all 32 NFL teams.

Jenkins' day started strong after he broke a personal best on the bench press with 36 reps of 225-pounds.

Jenkins followed up the impressive bench press with two elite 40-yard dash times, he ran the dash in 5.03 and 5.01 seconds. Teven also weighed in at an impressive 317 pounds as a tackle.

Jenkins has quickly risen up NFL Draft boards since the conclusion of the Cowboys season, and may find himself selected on the first day of the draft.

“I would be shocked if he's there in the second round after the testing he did today and the truth is with Teven and guys that have been in the program, he's just scratched the surface for what he can do,” coach Mike Gundy said.

Wallace has impressed NFL scouts in offseason workout, such as in the Senior Bowl, and continued Thursday. Wallace ran a 4.5 and a 4.4 seconds 40-yard dash. Wallace also impressed in agility drills recording a 6.97 second three cone drill.

Wallace has been in Stillwater a lot since the end of the OSU season, and has spent a lot of time training with former coaches and his brother Tracin Wallace.

“I think that one thing that is pretty common with everybody is saying the aggressiveness that I play with as far as whether it's attacking the football or blocking, just things like that,” Wallace said. “I think that's probably the most common thing if you ask me.”

Hubbard, also had a solid day, and a well-timed one at that. Hubbard had been slipping down some draft boards after a down 2020 season, but came to OSU Pro Day to show scouts that he’s 100% healthy and ready to go.

Hubbard came out of the gates strong with 20 reps on the bench press, a 36-inch vertical jump, and a blazing fast 40-yard dash time.

"I think I'm one of the top running backs, if not the top,” Hubbard said. “Obviously this last year people can say I had a down year. A lot of people didn't know I was coming off a lot of surgeries and a lot of different things going on with my body and my health. The biggest thing at the end of the day was helping my team win. I know when it's all said in done, I have faith in God that everything will workout.

“Wherever I get drafted, first round, seventh round or undrafted free agent, I just need a shot. I'll be ready for it."
