At least the first three picks of the 2021 NFL Draft are expected to be used on quarterbacks, but it's anyone's guess what happens after that. Offensive tackle prospect Penei Sewell is a top option and he recently showed some emotion by offering a badass quote.
"I like to use my body type to my advantage and to really get up under people’s chin and to really showcase my mentality. I’m coming off the ball every play with violent intentions and that nothing less is coming from that."- Penei Sewell
Penei Sewell NFL Draft
Sewell opted out of the 2020 college football season, but he impressed scouts at Oregon's recent Pro Day. The 20-year-old lineman has a toughness and physicality that should translate to the NFL rather easily. He has the skill set to step in right away and compete for a starting spot.
Checking in at 6-foot-4 and 331 pounds, Sewell showcased his athleticism by posting a 5.09 40-yard dash, 30 bench press reps, a 28-inch vertical and a 7.8 three-cone drill.
The former Oregon Duck is projected to be a top-10 pick as multiple teams including the Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins are looking to upgrade their protection up front. Sewell gave up just one sack during his last two seasons of play, which was a span of 1,376 snaps.
All signs point to Sewell becoming an elite offensive lineman in the NFL. No matter where he ends up, it looks like one team will be getting a player with motivation to be a game-changer at the next level.
