Oklahoma Sooners Football / Tyrus Thompson Combine and Draft Overview

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Tyrus Thompson had every opportunity to improve his draft stock at the combine. Here is our 4th installment overviewing every draft eligible player for the Sooners. Tyrus anchored the left side of the offensive line for the Sooners for what seemed like a decade. He decided to not run the 40 yard dash at the combine in order to make sure he was as healthy as possible when he runs. He will most assuredly run at OU's pro day. Here is an overview of his combine workouts and our draft projections for him.

HT: 6-5

WT: 324

ARMS: 34 7/8"

HANDS: 10 1/4"

BENCH PRESS: 29 reps

VERTICAL: 29"

BROAD JUMP: 8'1"

20 YARD SHUTTLE: 4.92 seconds
