HOUSTON – Penn State All-American cornerback Joey Porter Jr., the son of former Pittsburgh Steelers star outside linebacker Joey Porter, has cemented his already strong reputation with NFL teams.

Porter visits the New York Giants today, the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday and the New Orleans Saints on Wednesday., per a league source, and previously visited the Las Vegas Raiders, Washington Commanders, Baltimore Ravens and Carolina Panthers.

A second-team All-American and first-team All-Big Ten Conference selection, Porter had 27 tackles and 11 pass breakups in 10 starts before missing two games with appendicitis. He was a third-team all-conference selection in 2021 with 51 tackles, one interception and four pass breakups. Three seasons ago, he had 33 tackles, two for losses and four pass breakups and was an honorable-mention All-Big Ten pick.

Porter (6-foot-2, 193 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds at the NFL scouting combine with a 1.5 10-yard split, a 35-inch vertical leap and a 10--9 broad jump.

Porter draws high marks for strength, coverage skills, aggressiveness and scheme flexibility. He’s regarded as a strong plug-and-play candidate.
