Final 2018 NFL Combine medals count: Penn State dominates

Print

INDIANAPOLIS -- Penn State ran away with the NFL Scouting Combine medals count with 13 total medals, more than any other school, including nine golds. It also was the largest margin of victory in the medal count's three-year history; Ohio State won in 2016 by a 12-7 count over Cal and TCU. Utah nipped Texas A&M last year, 10-9.

The medals count awarded schools gold, silver and bronze medals for players with a first-, second- or third-place finish at their position in any event.

Nittany Lions RB Saquon Barkley and TE Mike Gesicki earned 10 medals between them. Barkley earned three medals in the running backs group, while Gesicki dominated the tight end competition to earn seven. On Monday, four Penn State defensive backs -- half of PSU's eight-man combine field -- completed the rout with three more medals.

North Carolina State, UCLA and Oklahoma tied for second place with six medals each.

Here are the results after the final day of drills:

1. Penn State -- GOLD: 9, SILVER: 3, BRONZE: 1, TOTAL: 13
