Iowa offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs had an impressive day at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Wirfs set a modern record for offensive linemen with a 36.5-inch vertical jump during Friday's workout, then added a 10-foot, 1-inch broad jump, which ties a record for offensive linemen.

He added a 4.85 40-yard dash, best among offensive linemen, and 24 reps in the bench press.

The day drew instant praise from NFL Draft analysts.

Wirfs did the 3-cone drill in 7.65 seconds and the 20-yard shuttle in 4.68 seconds during Friday night's drills.

Wirfs, at 6-foot-5 and 320 pounds, came into the combine projected as a first-round pick. Friday was a day that will only help his stock.
