Representatives from 27 NFL teams were present at Ohio State’s pro day, which was held indoors on field turf. A total of 12 players from the university and one player from Glenville State worked out in front of NFL coaches and scouts.
Zack Boren, FB (5-foot-11 7/8, 250 pounds) — Posted a best time of 4.98 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
Johnathan Hankins, DL (6-3 1/4, 320 pounds) — Considered a top-12 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Hankins reminds people of Cleveland Browns DL Phil Taylor. What hurt his performance during the season was that he seldom came off the field. It’s hard for big guys like this to play 65 or 70 snaps a game. Hankins opted to only take part in selected drills coming off his effort in the NFL Scouting Combine.
Etienne Sabino, LB (6-2, 244 pounds) — The linebacker could hear his name called at the NFL draft next month. He recorded a 34-inch vertical jump and 4.41 time in the short shuttle.
Jake Stoneburner, TE (6-4 1/8, 249 pounds) — He had a very good workout, showing off his catching skills with real smooth hands. Stoneburner posted 40 times of 4.53 and 4.56.
Nathaniel Williams, DE (6-3 3/8, 242 pounds) — Ohio State worked him out as a defensive end and linebacker in positional drills. He clocked in at 4.76 and 4.77 in the 40. Williams looked better at linebacker than defensive lineman in drills, but there are concerns about his size.
Orhian Johnson, DB (6-2 5/8 216 pounds) — Johnson didn’t take part in the combine, but he posted a decent best time of 4.56 in the 40. He also had a 10-foot-10 broad jump. Johnson might hear his name called at the draft. If not, he probably will be a priority free agent.
Mark Jackson, OL (6-5 5/8 332 pounds) — He ran a 5.50 in the 40, which was a little better than what he ran at the combine.
