    Here are some results from OSU's Pro Day.

    Will Smith ran two 40's of 4.58 and 4.62. Vertical of 38' and put up 30 reps of 225.

    Gamble only ran 4.50 in both of his 40's

    Darrion Scott averaged a 4.75 in his 40's

    Michael Jenkins low 40 time was a 4.42

    Supposedly Dustin Fox ran a 4.37 before the workouts. That kid just flies. I would love to see some races between Dustin and Ted Ginn next fall.

    Looking more and more that I'm right about Gamble not going in the first round.

    Gamble will go in the first round. There is too much intrigue in his ability. People will also look at his "game speed" more than his time today. Look at William Green with the Browns. Everyone was afraid of his speed, but the Browns realized he had enough speed when playing. He has had a couple of nice, long runs in the NFL.

    LoKyBuckeye I give up. This board is too hard to understand. Staff Member

    Darrion Scott will be a steal in the later rounds. I could see him being a solid player in the NFL. What's the latest on where he might go?

    "i heard earlier today that he ran a 4.37........"

    That was Fox, not Gamble. Quotes from the article:

    "There were well over 100 scouts and coaches on hand to watch these players run on a very fast indoor surface."

    and

    "Game (sic) ran his 40s in 4.50 seconds twice."

    Not very impressive for running on a "very fast indoor surface".

    BuckinMichigan,

    "Game speed" is something that's really hard to judge and almost impossible to quantify. If he's relying on “game speed” to get him drafted in the 1st round, then he has to hope one of the coaches becomes enamored with him for some other attributes too. I think the 4.5 is a serious blow to his 1st round chances but didn’t eliminate it.

    if gamble ran a 4.5 in his home turf........hes a late first rounder.....

    edit.....any other measurables.....maybe a shuttle...

    Game speed is difficult to judge, especially for a defensive player. It is easier for someone like a William Green. His workout times were in the 4.6 range and yet the Browns took him. Regardless of the off-field problems, he had a great 64 yard run a couple of years ago when his speed surprised everyone on the field.

    I think coaches will look at his overall performance, his ability to play some offense and special teams, and most of all, his pure athletic talent. Someone will fixate on him that he is worth a roll of the dice. Many of the mock NFL drafts have the Jets selecting Gamble, but that could change if they pick up a John Lynch.

    Well, the good news is that tOSU produces such good athletes. The bad is obviously that it will be a challenge to "reload" most of 'em in '04. We all expect we can....let's hope so.
    Go Bucks!

    Sounds like MoC is thinking about setting his workout day so it will not adversely impact his draft status. Maybe the first week of May would be best. This guy continues to amaze me.

    Well, talk about an understatement. That would be a "good" time for a linebacker. 4.58 to 4.46 for a 270 pound DE is absolutely sick. :yow2:

    Will Smith could be the next Bruce Smith - both are / were a bit undersized for a DE, but had incredible speed and quickness, and have / had enough strength to bull rush a guy or knife inside to stop the run. It looks like Will confirmed his top 10 position.
