Tyler Owens leaps into Scouting Combine history

Texas Tech safety Tyler Owens has had himself quite the couple of days at the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine.

On Thursday, Owens created some interesting buzz by proclaiming that he doesn’t believe that space or other planets exist. That didn’t remain the most notable part of Owens’ week for too long.

During Friday’s athletic testing, Owens proved to be quite the prodigious leaper. The 12 foot-2-inch broad jump is the second-lkngest leap in comvjne history. It’s one inch behind Byron Jones’ record.

Unfortunately for Owens, his combine ended shortly thereafter. Owens pulled up quickly in his first 40-yard dash attempt with a groin issue and was ruled out for the rest of the testing.
