Sam Hubbard's Disappointing Pro Day Could Cause Slide

Ohio State has been a steady factory for NFL talent, churning a string of first-round picks. Defensive end Sam Hubbard has been projected to be one of the next in a very long line of Buckeye opening-round selections. However, at the Ohio State pro day, team sources say they were disappointed in his workout and now they question that first round projection.

"I would strongly consider dropping him from the first round of your mock," said a college scouting director. "He was 4.95 and 5.00 in the 40-yard dash, and that didn't surprise any of the Ohio State staff. He didn't do well in the bench press either. He was better in the field drills with good technique, but he didn't have the look of a first-round speed-and-strength kind of guy."

One thing going for Hubbard is that this draft doesn't have 32 prospects grading out as first-rounders. It varies by team, but the number of true first-rounders is around 20, give or take. Playing a premium position that always is in demand will help Hubbard as well, but team sources say that after his pro day, they think that it's possible he slips to Round 2.
