Eastern Washington's pro day was attended by about a dozen teams who were on hand to watch one of the biggest sleepers at the nose tackle position.

Jay-tee Tiuli was highly grade by scouts entering the 2017 season, but an injury sidelined him for the year. Tiuli came back this season with slightly lower grades but still played well.

He measured 6032 and 311 pounds on Friday, a reduction of 37 pounds from his weight at the NFLPA Game in January.

Tiuli completed 26 reps on the bench press, touched 29 inches on the vertical jump and reached 8-foot-11 in the board jump. His 40s timed between 5.15 and 5.20.

Tiuli looked athletic and powerful during position drills, at one point knocking Tampa Bay Bucs Tony Kinkela, who ran the workout, to the ground.

The consensus is that Tiuli will line up at nose tackle at the next level but has enough athleticism to play in a four-man line.
