Penn State OT Olu Fashanu Leaves NFL Combine Workout With Injury

Drew Allar celebrates his 1-yard second quarter score with Olu Fashanu.

It was a Jekyll-and-Hyde type of NFL Combine workout for Penn State OT Olu Fashanu

He ran well for a lineman. Fashanu posted a 5.11 first 40-yard dash.

Unfortunately, he couldn’t finish his workout due to an injury.

Fashanu reportedly told Stacey Dales of the NFL Network that he suffered a right thigh injury.

The good news is that Fashanu also told Dales he expected to be good to go by Penn State’s pro day. That’s scheduled for Friday, March 15. If he ends up being good to go, that Friday can be looked at as Fashanu’s last official act as a Penn State player.

After that, Fashanu will have to wait more than a month for the NFL Draft, where he’s expected to be the team’s highest-rated lineman selected since Levi Brown went No. 5 overall to the Cardinals in 2007.

Draft guru Daniel Jeremiah described the 6-foot-6, 317-pounder as “massive.”

“He has the ideal frame, ideal length,” Jeremiah said on a conference call last month.  “The Ohio State game this year was kind of the one that people will point to where he got in some trouble where his eyes were kind of in the wrong place. He gave up his chest and got bulled and moved around a little bit, but really on the whole, I think his tape is pretty solid. He would be plug and play. I think he can play on the left and on the right.”

Fashanu played on the left side during his two years starting at Penn State, and Caedan Wallace was the man on the right side. Wallace will also be working out today.
