    Updated info from

    There were 125 people -- including 10 NFL coaches from Atlanta, Houston, Cleveland, Buffalo, Chicago, Cincinnati, Jacksonville, New Orleans, Kansas City and Pittsburgh -- on hand to watch these players run. The consensus of opinion is that more people showed up here than at Miami Pro Day. There were also three general managers from New Orleans, Kansas City and Atlanta on hand and 10 head coaches in this group of over 125 on a very fast indoor surface.

    There were 22 seniors that worked out. The indoor field is layered with FieldTurf, but the prospects ran on an Astro surface in the end zone. Running back Maurice Clarett and WR Drew Carter did not work out, but will do so on April 5, at noon.

    Will Smith DE (6-2½, 267) ran his 40s in 4.58 and 4.62. He did a 38½-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot-9 long jump and he benched 225 pounds a total of 30 times. A sore ankle prevented him from running the short and long shuttles, but he ran 7.42 in the three-cone drill.

    Chris Gamble WR/CB (6-1¼, 196) ran 4.50 and 4.55 in the 40. He had a 39½-inch vertical jump, ran 4.25 in the short shuttle and 6.89 in the cone drill. He also did 16 strength reps. Gamble looked very good, smooth with his change of direction and he closes fast.

    Michael Jenkins WR (6-4 3/8, 217) ran the 40s in 4.38 and 4.42 seconds. He had a 34-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot-6 long jump, ran 4.31 in the short shuttle and 6.93 in three-cone drill.

    Will Allen S (6-0½, 202 LB) ran 4.57 and 4.60 in the 40. He had a 36-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot-7 long jump, ran 4.25 short shuttle and 7.06 in the cone drill.

    Shane Olivea OT/G (6-3, 306) ran two 40s in 5.12 and 5.13 seconds and had a 8-foot-9 long jump.

    Ben Hartsock TE did not run again (ran at the combine), but he looked very good in the workouts.

    What is the highest number of players that we have had drafted in one year?

    13 in 1971 and 1975, but that was when the draft was longer. Since the draft has gone to 7 rounds, we've had 8 drafted numerous times.
  4. I would be shocked if we don't get more than 8 this year. Jenkins, Gamble, Allen, Step, Smith, Scott, Anderson, Hartsock should all be locks. Sanders and many of the OLine folks as well as Reynolds are also all possibilities.

    Very good buckeye draft.

    I think Sander will actually get drafted, with how well he has punted for scouts so far. Wasn't it the Redskins (or Browns) that absolutely raved how well he punted during their tryouts?
