And if Wade's ball skills are as good as his measurements, he could be looking forward to a big bump in his draft stock. According to NFL agent Michael Perrett, Wade posted a 4.43 40-yard dash along with a 37.5" vertical leap and a 10-foot-3 broad jump.
Wade missed Ohio State's first Pro Day in March due to a turf toe injury. Given how his draft stock has reportedly been tanking in recent months after his struggles in the national championship game, he needed a big showing at his Pro Day.
So far, so good.
Shaun Wade played in all 14 games as a redshirt freshman in 2018. He recorded 31 tackles, a career-high three interceptions, seven passes defended and one forced fumble that year.
Over the next two seasons, Wade would continue playing at a high level for the Buckeyes. He earned two All-Big Ten selections and winning the Tatum-Woodson Defensive Back of the Year award in 2020.
But he had a brutal game against Alabama's Heisman-winning wide receiver DeVonta Smith in the national title game. The Buckeyes defense was blown out in a 52-24 loss and Wade's reputation suffered.
There's two weeks to go before the NFL Draft, but a huge outing at his Pro Day may be able to undo some of that damage.
