Small-school prospect shines at Penn’s pro day

A.J. Jackson, a wide receiver from California University of Pennsylvania, stole the show at the University of Pennsylvania’s pro day on March 31st.

Jackson (6-1 1/4, 236) did a good job in drills catching passes from a San Francisco 49ers scout and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.75-seconds against the wind and 4.68 with the wind, had a 35-inch vertical leap, 10-foot broad jump, 4.33-second short shuttle, 7.11 three-cone drill and completed 17 bench press repetitions at 225 pounds.

Jackson, along with six players from small local schools and three from Penn, were evaluated by scouts from eight teams outdoors on FieldTurf.

Another notable prospect:

Penn linebacker/special teamer Jake Lewko (6-0 3/4 232) ran 4.81 against the wind and 4.78 with the wind in the 40, had a 30.5-inch vertical leap, a 9-5 broad jump, a 4.37 short shuttle, 7.26 three-cone drill, completed 22 bench press reps and did a position workout.
