Still is star of show at Penn State’s pro day

There were 24 teams present — including Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley — when Penn State held its pro day on March 14.

The workout was conducted indoors on FieldTurf, and highlighted by Devon Still, a defensive tackle who looked very good and impressive enough to be worthy of selection in the first round of the draft on Thursday, April 26.

Still measured 6-foot-5 1/8 and 300 pounds, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.94 and 5.04 seconds, did a 4.65-second short shuttle and a 7.70-second three-cone drill. In his latest mock draft, NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Albert Breer projects Still to go No. 24 to the Steelers.

Here are some of the other notable performers from Penn State’s pro day:

Jack Crawford, DE (6-foot-5 1/8, 272 pounds) — Crawford did not jump or run, standing on his numbers in those drills from the NFL Scouting Combine. Crawford did 14 strength lifts of 225 pounds. Obviously, for a player at his position, he needs to get stronger in a hurry.

Derek Moye, WR (6-4 3/4, 208) — Moye ran a 4.44 in each attempt in the 40, then kept his numbers in the other drills from the combine. Moye caught the ball well and had an impressive workout. Moye’s status during draft weekend is hindered by the deep class at the wide receiver position.

Chaz Powell, CB (6 1/2, 207) — Powell ran the 40 in 4.50 and 4.52 seconds, had a 33-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-3 broad jump.

Nathan Stupar, OLB (6-1 5/8, 238) — Stupar ran a 4.60 and 4.68 in the 40, had a 31-inch vertical jump, and then stood on his other numbers from the combine. Stupar had a good workout.

Nick Sukay, S (6-1, 215) — Sukay did not participate at the combine and went through each of the drills, running the 40 in 4.68 and 4.70 seconds, registering a 32-inch vertical and 9-foot-6 broad jump, running a 4.18-second short shuttle and 6.95-second three-cone, and executing 21 strength lifts.
