Saquon Barkley turned everyone’s heads at the NFL Scouting Combine this weekend with his ridiculously good performances. Penn State’s star running back is delivering on his pre-draft hype, and the media and fans were rightfully all over him this weekend.
By Monday, though, it’s clear that Barkley’s teammates are no slouches either. Each Nittany Lion has made the most of his opportunity here.

NFL Network's Mike Mayock: "Let's face it, Penn State has lit this Combine up."

#PennState had three guys light up the Combine: Saquon, Mike Gesicki and safety Troy Apke. Probably would've had a 4th in CB Christian Campbell who won't compete till Pro Day. PSU staffers say his vertical might get up to 42 inches & broad jump over 11-feet.

Penn State safety Troy Apke ran a 4.35 unofficially timed 40-yard dash on Monday. His speed drew the eye of Deion Sanders, who was commenting on the broadcast while Apke blazed through.
Deion Sanders reaction to #PennState Troy Apke running a 4.35u is priceless.
“You know why I’m surprised. I can’t say it on TV!”
