John Simon of Ohio State finally gets chance to work out

Shoulder surgery prevented Ohio State’s John Simon from participating in drills at the NFL Scouting Combine and at the school’s pro day, so the defensive end held an individual workout on Monday.

There were 12 teams present, with Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert the notable attendee.

Simon (6-foot-1, 257 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.68 and 4.73 seconds. He had a 34-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-1 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.42 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.10 seconds. Simon did not lift on the bench press since he did not want to take the chance of re-aggravating his shoulder injury.

Simon’s prospect rating is 70.5, which means he’s a potential starter at best or a role player.
