Joe Tryon, Washington
Position: Edge rusher
Year: Redshirt junior
Hometown: Renton, Wash.
Measurable of note: Reportedly ran a 4.5-second 40-yard dash at Washington’s pro day
The lowdown: A 2019 second-team All-Pac 12 pick, Tryon announced last August he was opting out of the 2020 season. As a result, he enters the NFL with 14 career collegiate starts. He had eight sacks in 13 games (12 starts) as a redshirt sophomore in 2019, totaling 41 tackles including 12-1/2 for loss. In the Apple Cup game against rival Washington State that season, he had four tackles (including 2-1/2 for loss and two sacks) in a 31-13 Huskies triumph.
General manager Jason Licht’s take: “He’s a very fluid athlete. He’s got very good feet. He’s got good lateral quickness. He plays with tremendous effort, which raises his game speed in my opinion, because he never gives up. His workouts really jumped off the tape.”
