The 2021 Pro Day circuit continues to roll on with the NFL draft happening at the end of this month.

And on Friday, it was the time for the Oregon Ducks to showcase to the 31 NFL teams what they can bring to the table.

Penei Sewell is considered the top offensive tackle in the 2021 Draft and is projected to go in the top-10.

His strength, athleticism and his size make him an easy grab for teams who need to add extra protection for their quarterback.

Although Sewell did opt out of the 2020 season, he played 1,395 snaps in the 2018 and 2019 seasons.

During that time, he only gave up 15 pressures, 3 QB hits and just 1 sack.

And during his Pro Day, Sewell showed out why he is the best in his class at the position.

Here are some stats Sewell showcased on Friday.

40 Time: 5.09 seconds

3-Cone: 7.7 seconds

Short Shuttle: 4.68 seconds

Broad Jump: 9-foot-1 (average is 8-foot-6)

Vertical Jump: 28 inches

Bench Press: 30 reps

Sewell’s performance certainly impressed all the NFL scouts in Eugene watching him in person.

The NFL Network talked to Sewell after his workout, and he wanted to talk his talk.

"I think people kind of forgot about my name a little bit (due to opting out last year)," Sewell said in an interview with NFL Network after pro day.

"I just wanted to wake people up and know I'm still OT1 in the draft, and that what I bring to the table is something totally different than everybody's seen."
