Penei Sewell Has Impressive Showing at Pro Day in Front of Bengals, 30 Other NFL Teams

Sewell could be the favorite to be the Bengals' pick at No. 5

CINCINNATI — Three members of the Bengals organization attended Oregon's Pro Day on Thursday to watch Penei Sewell showcase his skills. 

The 20-year-old is considered the top offensive line prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft. He had an impressive showing, but it wasn't a flawless day for the star tackle. 

Sewell measured in at 6-foot-4, 331 pounds. He ran a 5.09 second (unofficial) 40-yard dash and bench pressed 225 pounds 30 times. 

He posted a 28-inch vertical jump, a 109-inch (9.1 feet) broad jump and ran a 7.80 in the three-cone drill. His rare athleticism was on full display for all to see. 

Bengals head coach Zac Taylor, offensive line coach Frank Pollack and Director of Player Personnel Duke Tobin were there to watch Sewell work out.

The one negative was Sewell's arm length. His arms are 33 1/4 inches long. Most NFL teams like their tackles to have 34-inch arms because it allows them to keep defensive ends away from their body. 

This is by no means a deal breaker for the Bengals or any other team that is seriously considering taking him in the draft, but it is worth noting. 

There are plenty of questions about Sewell's technique, but his strength and overall talent helped make up for those skills at the collegiate level. 

Current Bengals left tackle Jonah Williams' arms are 33 5/8 inches long and that caused him to fall in the 2019 NFL Draft. Cincinnati took him with the 11th overall pick. 

Sewell's case to be the fifth pick in the 2021 NFL Draft got a boost on Friday. He has rare athleticism that every NFL team would love to have in an offensive tackle.
