    The guy seems to have good athletic ability, given that he is still not completely healthy. Guess he could probably break 4.6 if completly healthy.


    Bobby Carpenter LB Carpenter is only 90 percent healthy, according to trainers, but he ran the 40 in 4.66 and 4.68, the short shuttle in 4.31 and the three-cone drill in 6.88. He also had a 34 1/2-inch vertical jump, a broad jump of 10-foot-4, and did 20 strength reps. Carpenter looked

    His 20 reps kinda bother me. He needs to get a lot stronger to handle the SOLB position.

    BTW, Lawson did 23 and Wimbley had 24 respectively.

    Buckeyes make good impression on pro day
    NFL coaches watch while 12 Ohio State players run, work out

    COLUMBUS - Ohio State linebacker Bobby Carpenter said the right ankle he fractured Nov. 19 against Michigan still doesn't feel back to normal.

    That notion surprised Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau.

    ``He looked like he was 100 percent to me,'' LeBeau said. ``They said he's 90 percent. If he's got more than that, he's pretty good.''

    Carpenter said he ran the 40-yard dash in the high-4.5 to low-4.6-second range Thursday in his first chance to impress the pro scouts. He was projected as going to the Steelers with the last pick in the first round on ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr.'s last list.

    ``I'm happy with how I did,'' Carpenter said. ``I didn't run the 40 as well as I hoped to. Some of that might be due to a little nerves.

    ``You don't get second chances. This is something you dream about your whole life, running in front of the pro scouts.''

    Carpenter wasn't the only standout as Ohio State held pro day at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
