Supp draft WR  Simms posts decent pro day numbers … GBN Investigative College Football Analyst Larry Parker is reporting that West Virginia WR Marcus Simms had a pretty good pro day workout yesterday. A total of 16 teams were at Simms workout, including Oakland GM Mike Mayock, where he measured in at just under 6-0 and weighed 188 pounds. Simms reportedly ran the 40 in the 4.45 range with some clockings as low as 4.40. He also posted leaps of 36-inches in the vertical and a 10-3 broad jump, both of which were middle of the pack type numbers among WR’s at the combine, while his times of 4.19 seconds in the short shuttle and 6.91 in the 3-cone drill, both of which would have been top ten numbers at this year’s scouting combine. According to Parker, Simms appears to be a draftable player, although he’s more likely to be selected with a later round pick. If not for his off the field issues, though, Simms likely would project to the middle rounds of the draft because of his athleticism and upside combination. Indeed, he is a better athletic talent than either Gary Jennings or David Sills, West Virginia’s other two WR’s this past season. Jennings was a 4th round pick by Seattle, while Sills signed with Buffalo as an undrafted free agent. Simms is quicker and faster than both of them, he extends his hands better than both, and he can get deep.
