Jeff Okudah was a unanimous All-American and arguably the most consistent cornerback in the country during his final season at Ohio State. But apparently one reporter at the NFL Combine didn't watch the film.
During his media availability on Friday morning, Okudah fielded a question about how he was going to improve his “sloppy" play at the next level.
Okudah rightfully put him in his place.
Someone who I'm guessing didn't watch much Jeff Okudah last year asked him about having "a tendency to get kind of sloppy."— Dan Hope (@Dan_Hope) February 28, 2020
Okudah's response: "I had zero pass interferences, zero holdings, so cut the tape on the game. I think you might see something else." pic.twitter.com/oQ3rrtP3q1
Here's a quick transcript for your amusement.
Reporter: "Sometimes you have a tendency to get kind of sloppy, how are you going to kind of improve that?"
Jeff Okudah: "Sloppy in what way?"
Reporter: "Kinda using penalties and stuff like that."
Jeff Okudah: "I had zero pass interferences, zero holdings, so cut the tape again. I think you might see something else."
Okudah is almost unanimously considered to be top-10 talent and is projected by most mock drafts to be the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL Draft behind only Joe Burrow and Chase Young.
