[Photo Story] Penn State Football’s 2023 Pro Day

Preparations for the 2023 NFL Draft are heating up for Penn State football standouts with the draft just under a month away.

As part of their regimens, 13 Nittany Lions participated in Penn State’s Pro Day on Friday, March 24, at Holuba Hall to show general managers, coaches, and scouts their talents.

Our visual team was on the scene to capture the energy and excitement of the 2023 Pro Day.

Sean Clifford’s 40-yard-dash time got better after he took his shirt off. Aerodynamics was certainly at play here.

Former Penn State defensive back Jaquan Brisker stopped by Pro Day. The Chicago Bear standout chatted with players and media for a few hours.

The future of Penn State football was in attendance, too. Drew Allar highlighted a handful of youngsters in watching their mentors move on in their careers.

James Franklin communicated players’ 40-yard-dash times and broad jump lengths by using his hands. It was an extremely efficient system.

Brenton Strange was grunting quite loudly during his routes.

Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel spent some time hanging around Holuba Hall and chatting with players.

Clifford was undoubtedly admiring Mitchell Tinsley’s back muscles.

Ji’Ayir Brown had a second chance at the 40-yard dash, and he saw improvement.

“I thought I was gonna hit a 4.4,” Brown said Friday. “Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, but I still got a better time than what was displayed at the Combine.”

Joey Porter Jr. rocked a Supreme hat. Even on Pro Day, he made sure to be dripped out.

We’d like to pay our respects to the unfortunate team manager that Juice Scruggs pancaked during his position drills.

Likely a first-round selection, Porter put together the group’s best broad jump with a length of 10’11”. The one-inch difference from 11′ was the possibly greatest disappointment of the day, judging by the players’ reactions.

Looking at these faces, we’re dying to know what Franklin was saying to his offensive line here.

Sean Clifford had his game face on at Pro Day. The sixth-year senior confirmed he had met with several NFL teams, including the Dallas Cowboys, and would meet with the Denver Broncos in the near future.

We got our first taste of wide receiver transfer Malik McClain on Friday, as the Florida State transfer caught a few balls from Clifford.

McClain will want to follow in the steps of Mitchell Tinsley, who had a standout season in his lone year in Happy Valley.
