Thibodeaux or Thibo-don’t?

The 2022 NFL Draft Thibodeaux: How high will he be selected?

The scouts came in droves to see the 6’5″ big man move.

The Detroit Lions reportedly sent enough guys to Oregon’s Pro Day to field a 7-on-7 football team.

But while Kayvon Thibodeaux reportedly had no trouble showing off the traits that made him one of college football’s best edge rushers the past two years,  it could end up being how he tests off the field – through interviews and private meetings – that might hold the final say in when his name gets called on draft day later this month.

That homework apparently started Friday.

Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline reported that Thibodeaux was meeting with the Jets privately early Friday afternoon.

The team holds both the No. 4 and 10 picks in round one and has a spot to fill on the edge in its 4-3 scheme.

The Ravens were expected to huddle with the Oregon pass-rusher for dinner.

They currently sit at the No. 14 spot.

Giants GM Joe Schoen was also spotted at Oregon’s pro day.

Few have questioned Thibodeaux’s ability.

Strong against the run and pass, he racked up 91 tackles and 10 sacks over the past two seasons (17 total games).

But questions have persisted about his work ethic – particularly whether he has too many outside interests.

Thibodeaux has dispelled that notion, saying he’s a student of the game who believes he’s still learning to perfect his craft.

“Maybe the biggest “Wildcard” in the Draft in that he could still go as high as 1 overall or could slip,” Good Morning Football’s Pete Schrager Tweeted on Friday.

The Oregon Ducks have not seen a player drafted in the top 5 since Marcus Mariota in 2015.
