Detroit’s offensive tackle Penei Sewell made his return to Oregon to support his younger brother Noah at his Pro Day. In a recent post on his Instagram story, Sewell was photographed on the sidelines as his brother participated in drills.
There has been some speculation that the Lions could pair the two up in the NFL as Noah interviewed with the Lions at the Combine.
Only two years ago, Penei found himself participating in Oregon’s Pro Day where he measured in at 6’4” 331lbs. He ran a 5.09 40-yard dash, benched 225lbs 30 times, had a 28-inch vertical jump, a 109-inch broad jump, and ran a 7.80 in the three-cone drill.
These were incredible numbers for a lineman and highlighted the elite athleticism that Sewell possessed.
This year, his brother Noah, a linebacker measured in at 6’2” and 250lbs. He plays a much more traditional style of football compared to the prototype new-age hybrid linebacker. As a result of this, the tests conducted at the Combine and Pro Day do not do any favors to his draft stock.
Among linebackers at the combine, Sewell ranked as the fourth worst in the 40-yard dash, fifth worst in the 10-yard split, and third worst in the broad jump.
At Oregon’s Pro Day, he did not participate in the 40-yard dash, broad jump, or vertical jump, however, he did do some shuttle and coverage drills.
While Sewell leaves a little to be desired in terms of his athletic ability, there is still clear interest in him and he could end up playing alongside his brother in Detroit.
