After checking in at nearly six-foot-three and 300 pounds, Jack-Kurdyla pumped out 18 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. He recorded a 23-inch vertical, eight-foot, three-inch broad jump, 5.35 time in the 40-yard sprint and 4.75 shuttle.

Jack-Kurdyla earned a starting role on the offensive line during his true freshman year in 2016. Through four years with the Bulls, the Montreal native started in 40 games at guard. He was a key part of Buffalo’s first-ever 10-win season in 2018 and the Bulls first bowl victory in the 2019 Bahamas Bowl.

The Vanier College product is seen as a highly rated CFL prospect, ranked No. 5 in the December scouting bureau. If an NFL opportunity doesn’t happen for Jack-Kurdyla, teams north of the border will be happy to secures his talents in the draft.
