Canadian offensive lineman Anim Dankwah participated in the local pro day with the Washington Commanders on Tuesday.

The six-foot-eight, 353-pound blocker spent the past five seasons at Howard University in Washington, D.C., appearing in 39 games and establishing himself as a three-year starter at left tackle. In 11 games as a senior, he allowed a career-low 11 pressures and two sacks and was named first-team All-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

Born in Accra, Ghana, Dankwah immigrated to Ontario to live with his father while attending high school and began playing football at St. Roch Catholic Secondary School. Excelling at the new sport, he moved to The Taft School in Watertown, Conn. to finish his high school eligibility before landing an opportunity with the Bisons as a zero-star recruit.

Dankwah attended the recent NFL Combine and posted a 27.5-inch vertical and 24 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. On his pro day on March 28, he ran a 5.44-second forty-yard dash, 5.21-second three-cone, 8.46-second three-cone drill, and leaped 88 inches in the broad jump.
