Villanova’s Ijalana holds private workout for scouts

Villanova OL Ben Ijalana, who was unable to work out at the NFL Scouting Combine or the school’s pro day, held a personal workout Wednesday for scouts indoors on FieldTurf.

Ijalana (6-foot-3 5/8, 313 pounds) ran 5.25 and 5.27 seconds in the 40-yard dash, had a 25 ½-inch vertical jump and 8-9 broad jump, and ran a 4.68 short shuttle and 7.76 3-cone drill. He was unable to do the bench press because of his sports hernia.

Ijalana is expected to be drafted on the second day, probably in the third round.
