BYU held its annual Pro Day Friday morning in front of NFL scouts from most of the NFL teams around the league, and Jonah Trinnaman was the star of the day with his performance.
Trinnaman officially ran a 4.30 40-yard dash, had a 12 foot broad jump and 40.5 inch vertical jump. The first two marks would have led ALL players at this year’s NFL combine, and his vertical jump would have led all wide receivers. The 144-inch broad jump is only 4 inches away from the world record.
It's crazy to think Jonah Trinnaman was 4 inches away from setting a world record in the Broad Jump. Yes, not just a Pro Day/Combine record, but the greatest performance in the...*cues up Bill Walton voice*... history of the world! 12 feet was incredible. #BYU— Mitch Harper (@Mitch_Harper) March 30, 2018
Trinnaman’s performance caught the eye of some national media pundits.
25 teams were at @BYUfootball pro day today. Two players who left with post-draft FA grades:— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) March 30, 2018
Freakishly athletic WR Jonah Trinnaman (5-10 1/2, 192) put on a show: 4.31/4.28 40s, 41.5 vertical, 12-0 broad. Wow!!!
DL Tomasi Laulile (6-2 5/8, 301) 4.83/4.82 40s, 21 lifts.
Your Pro Day numbers come from BYU WR Jonah Trinnaman.— Kevin Fishbain (@kfishbain) March 30, 2018
I’m told his was clocked as fast as the mid-4.2’s in the 40 (fastest WR at the Combine ran a 4.34).
40.5” vert would have been No. 1 among WRs at the Combine.
Per source, the Bears had dinner with Trinnaman last night.
Remember this name #Chiefs fans: Jonah Trinnaman - WR BYU— Ryan Tracy (@RyanTracyNFL) March 30, 2018
Tyreek Hills selection surprised and Trinnaman fits the same bill: under the radar guys with Elite Athleticism
If Trinnaman’s performance doesn’t cause a team to use a late round draft pick on him, he’ll get a shot to make a 53-man roster as an undrafted free agent.
Tejan Koroma also put on a good showing for scouts. He put up 32 reps on the bench press (225 pounds), ran a 5.20 40-yard dash, and had a 30.5 inch vertical jump. All those numbers would have been near the top in their respective categories at the combine.
Tejan’s performance also put him on the radar for NFL teams, as he has a visit with the Cowboys and other teams in the coming weeks.
The NFL Draft will be held April 26-28.
