Fifteen were on hand to witness Iowa State’s pro day on March 22, which was highlighted by DB David Sims and TE Collin Franklin.
Sims (5-foot-9 ¾, 205 pounds) ran 4.52 and 4.56 seconds in the 40-yard dash, a 4.32 short shuttle, a 6.94 3-cone drill, had a 36 ½-inch vertical jump, 10-3 broad jump, and did 26 bench-press repetitions at 225 pounds. He looked good and is probably a sixth- or seventh-rounder.
Franklin (6-5 5/8, 256) ran 4.69 and 4.74 in the 40, 4.29 in the short shuttle, 7.44 in the 3-cone drill, had a 34 ½-inch vertical jump, a 10-4 broad jump, and did 28 lifts. He already had one visit with the Bears and will have another with the Raiders the week of April 17.
