4.48 40 yard dash time at his pro day

Onobun, a former University of Arizona basketball player who transferred to UH this past season, wowed the scouts by turning a 4.48 time in the 40-yard dash. The scouts measured him at 6 feet 5 inches tall and 252 pounds, with a 37-inch vertical jump. Onobun had the best vertical jump and broad jump (11-1) and tied for the best shuttle time (4.15, matching receiver Tim Monroe) of the 12 players who worked out for the scouts.

“You can't coach that,” UH linebacker Matt Nicholson said, shaking his head at the display.

After just four hours of sleep, Onobun was still able to run a faster 40-yard dash (4.48 seconds) than all tight end invitees at the NFL Combine save for Pittsburgh’s Dorin Dickerson. He would have placed fourth among tight ends at the Combine in the vertical jump, second in the 3-cone drill, second in the 60-yard shuttle, first in the 20-yard shuttle and first in the broad jump.

Body: 6-foot-6, 252 pounds
40-yard dash: 4.48 seconds
225-pound bench: 16 repetitions
20-yard shuttle: 4.15 seconds
60-yard shuttle: 11.64 seconds
3-cone drill: 6.78 seconds
Broad jump: 11 feet, 1 inch
Vertical jump: 37.5 inches

Does he have hands???

I think he'd be a great Patriots player beside Houston alumnus, Sebastian Vollmer.

Why did he get only four hours of sleep?

here's his workout video

he only had 2 catches for 33 yards last year as well as an 18 yard TD but i love his potential if he is willing to play defensive end if he fails to produce at TE. the saints took a chance on a 6'6 280lb former basketball player from ole miss last year and tried him out at DE but he was more of a power guy and now he's on the Practice quad at OT. this guy is much more athletic and is more of a speed prospect.

his 40, shuttle time and 3 cone are better than Jerry hughes who is best and most agile speed rusher in the draft and to top it off the kid is 6'6.

it's easy to see why there was so much interest in him even last year.

That's what I was wondering. Maybe I should read the article.

With those kind of measurables and his youth in the game he might be worth developing as a rush linebacker in a 3-4 defense.
