We know Jon is big into testing numbers so I went out and grabbed Tryon’s. Here they are.

10 Yard Split 1.68s
20 Yard Split 2.76s

3-Cone Drill 7.18s
20 Yard Shuttle 4.67s
Bench Press 19 reps
Wait a second, the weight isn’t right. That says 270, not 260.That’s because that isn’t Tryon’s numbers. Those were JPP’s numbers! Now lets really look at Tryon’s. . .
JPP was 10 pounds heavier obviously. He also had a better reach by 3/4″ of an inch. But other than that, Tryon out vertical jumped JPP by 5 inches, his 40 , 20 and 10 times were better. His bench was better and their 3-cone, an important measure was identical to 1/100th of a second.
the point is, you have a guy who is the literal build clone and athlete measurable clone of JPP. from whom, Tryon will learn his techniques and inherit this defense’s mean streak. He can rotate almost immediately, practice across from Tristan Wirfs and grow over the course of this next year.
As an aside, Bruglers publication, The Beast, listed detail stats and reviews on some 300 players, I believe. He listed HIS top 100 at any position in order of his grade on them. Coincidentally, he had Tryon as the 32nd best player in the draft. 5th best edge.
I prefered Oweh, who he listed as the 4th best and 26th overall. Oweh’s measurables were insane but to my point, if you knew that you were getting a 22 year old JPP would you complain or would you feel good about it? Because, I think that is what we got.
