Jaquan Brisker became one of college football’s best safety’s over the past two seasons and was named to multiple All-America teams in 2021 as a result.

The Gateway High School graduate will surely be selected in this spring’s NFL Draft, and the only questions are where and when he’ll be selected.

Brisker’s NFL combine, however, didn’t go according to plan.

Brisker did an impressive 22 bench press reps of 225 pounds,  which is only one rep behind Kentucky safety Yusuf Corker, who finished with 23 to lead the position group.

During Brisker’s rep, however he experienced pain in his lower back. Although he decided to continue the workouts, the pain became too much after Brisker’s first 40-yard dash run, and he decided not to continue.’s Ian Rapoport reported that Brisker will finish his workouts at Penn State’s pro day, which his scheduled for Thursday, March 24.

Brisker spent two years at Lackawanna Community College after graduating from Gateway in 2017. ESPN draft guru Todd McShay ranks him as the sixth best safety prospect.
