Taylor Cornelius – Noteworthy
The Oklahoma State football team hosted its annual Pro Day Tuesday inside the weight room at Boone Pickens Stadium and on the field at the Sherman E. Smith Training Center, with 13 Cowboys working out in front of representatives from every NFL team. Some of the top marks from the day included wide receiver Tyron Johnson being clocked at 4.34 seconds in the 40-yard dash, a 39-inch vertical jump from defensive end Jarrell Owens, 25 bench press reps for offensive lineman Larry Williams and several of the day’s top marks from quarterback Taylor Cornelius. Cornelius, who finished with the best broad jump, 20-yard shuttle, 60-yard shuttle and three-cone drill marks of any player on Tuesday, had several marks that would have ranked among the best quarterback results at this year’s NFL Combine.

Of those marks, his 38-inch vertical jump might be the most impressive, as it would have ranked No. 1 among all quarterbacks at the combine and been 3.5 inches better than the best mark at the event. Additionally, his 9’11” broad jump would have been third, his three-cone drill time of 7.06 seconds would have been fourth, his 4.7-second 40-time would have been sixth and his 4.33-second 20-yard shuttle would have been eighth. Although quarterbacks did not participate in the 60-yard shuttle at the combine, Cornelius finished the drill in 11.45 seconds, which would have ranked eighth among all players at the NFL Combine this year. – KOKI FOX 23
