Troy Apke is a freak athlete who played safety at Penn State. He ran a 4.34 40-yard dash and jumped 41 inches at the Combine, causing Deion Sanders to go into complete shock. This pick is very reminiscent of the Redskins’ 4th-round selection last year, Montae Nicholson, who was also an athletic testing freak-of-nature projected to go in the 5th or 6th round.
We’ll see if Redskins’ DB coach Torrian Gray can work the same magic on Apke.
