    Good read about Sims playing in the 2002 Fiesta Bowl and finishing his career at the 2005 Fiesta Charles Babb.

    Sims weighed in at the combine at 6-2, 307 and did not run a 40.
  6. I'm not sure where to post this but my sister just got a signed autograph of Rob Sims addressed to her. One of my sisters friends was flying somewhere and saw a big guy wearing a Fiesta Bowl shirt. Sure enough, it was Rob Sims.

    Anyway, best of luck to him in the draft and in the NFL.

    Per - "Rob Sims did not run at the Combine and he pulled up again in the 40 with the same right hamstring problem."

    If Rob end up a free agent I hope the Browns grab him.

    If Sims is available in the 7th round he will be a steal and I hope the Browns would draft him there. I originally thought that he would be a 5th or 6th round pick before the hamstring problems. His dad was a Brown so it would be fitting that he is as well.

    I was pleasantly surprised with where Rob got picked! I was expecting him much later in the 2nd day, say the 6th round. I believe he was the 6th overall OG taken in the draft and he's going to a team that should be a super bowl contender again. Best of luck, Rob!

    I was very happy about this choice of course:wink2: but not just because he's a Buckeye. Since we lost Hutchinson we could've used a guy like Sims.

    Call is divine for Sims

    Seahawks contact OSU, Nordonia lineman in church. Salley a Panther

    By Marla Ridenour

    Beacon Journal sportswriter

    BEREA - After waiting for naught all day Saturday for his son Rob to be drafted, former Browns defensive tackle Mickey Sims gave his family an ultimatum. Instead of sitting around the house in Macedonia all day Sunday, they were going to church.
    So they headed to Cornerstone Missionary Baptist Church in Cleveland. Rob, the former Nordonia High and Ohio State guard, put his cell phone on vibrate and listened to a sermon he thought was appropriate, ``Catching A Dream.''
    When he jumped up out of his pew and headed for the vestibule, a deacon pointed out to the congregation what had happened. On the other end of the phone was Seattle Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren.
    ``Rob got called during the invitation, when they open the doors for anybody to give their life over to Christ, a very sacred moment,'' Mickey Sims said. ``It was just awesome.''
    Rob Sims was selected in the fourth round, 128th overall, by the Seahawks. It was just minutes after Buckeyes free safety Nate Salley was picked 121st by the Carolina Panthers, joining former teammate Chris Gamble, their starting cornerback.
    ``It's perfect for me. A team that's a contender for the Super Bowl every year, and I'm reunited with my boy,'' Salley said of Gamble. ``It's a blessing.''
    Sims and Salley were the only two Ohio State players drafted Sunday, bringing the two-day total to nine. Southern California led the way with 11 picks in seven rounds. Miami (Fla.) also had nine and Florida State eight.
    Buckeyes players passed over included kicker Josh Huston and defensive end Mike Kudla of Highland. Kudla's injury history and a build that appeared too big for his 6-foot-1 ½ frame could have been factors, but he'll likely be signed as a free agent this week.
    Neither Salley nor Sims slept well Saturday night. Salley, a confessed night owl, dozed off about 4 a.m. Sims, who was hoping to be a first-day pick, said he was ``too excited to go lay down.'' He'd played golf with his high school coach in the morning, then ``got sucked into watching the draft.''
    ``Yesterday was extremely disappointing,'' Sims said. ``I got a little emotional because I thought I deserved to go. I thought I had worked hard enough. But I played guard, a not very sought-after position.''
    Sunday's turn of events that landed him with the defending NFC champions lifted his spirits.
    ``I feel so much better,'' he said. ``I think the Seahawks needed a guard and I was kind of hoping to go to that kind of team. It's kind of my luck I would go the farthest away from home, but they've got planes that go to Seattle.''
    Now a sergeant for the Cleveland MetroParks, Mickey Sims said, ``Miles don't make any difference. He's got an opportunity to play in the league. We'll try to make it shorter, come and watch when he gets closer.''
    Salley was extremely surprised that he ended up with the Panthers, perennial NFC contenders.
    ``That was one of the teams I spoke to the least,'' he said. ``I talked to one of their scouts at the East-West Shrine Game, but I don't think I spoke to anyone at the combine or since then. It's kinda weird.''
    He also thought it was strange that he was picked No. 121 when he wore No. 21 with the Buckeyes.
    Besides playing with Gamble, Salley has family in South Carolina, a cousin attending North Carolina and a sister and her children in Atlanta, so he should have a small cheering section at home games.
    The Browns had 10 picks and selected no Buckeyes. General Manager Phil Savage said the closest they came was with junior cornerback Ashton Youboty, a one-time first-round projection who slipped to the Buffalo Bills at No. 70 in the third round.
    ``There is a player who probably would have been better served going back (to school),'' Savage said.
    Savage said he called the Green Bay Packers for three consecutive days last week trying to make a deal to move up from No. 12 to fifth to take Lombardi Award-winning Buckeyes linebacker A.J. Hawk, but the Packers weren't interested and ended up picking Hawk. Savage said he also talked to the San Francisco 49ers, who held No. 6, in case the Packers tabbed tight end Vernon Davis.
