Shane Jarka had an impressive showing during the bench press. The defensive tackle had 34 reps of 225 pounds, a personal best in front of the NFL Scouts. Jarka played injured for much of his senior season, finishing with 13 tackles.

BACK TO HIS ROOTS

Lemon went back to his high school days at Houston (Texas) Yates, throwing passes to running back Kendall Hunter and receiver Bo Bowling during OSU's Pro Day. Lemon was a quarterback at Yates before moving to linebacker for the Cowboys.

“It wasn't a big deal,” Lemon said. “I had an arm in high school and I haven't lost it.”
