Assessing Jackson Powers-Johnson’s performance at the 2024 NFL Combine

The NFL Combine came to a close on Sunday afternoon with the offensive linemen and special teams players taking the stage.

Jackson Powers-Johnson was the main attraction for the Oregon Ducks, and he impressed on the field with a mix of his jumping numbers, and the fluidity with which he moved during the drills.

Currently, Powers-Johnson is graded as a mid-to-late-first-round pick. With his performance in the drills on Sunday, JPJ certainly established himself as a first-rounder, and likely one of the top interior offensive linemen off of the board.

Below is an in-depth look at Powers-Johnson’s 2024 Combine performance.
