    March 12, 2010 Print This .Add a Comment .Ohio State defensive end-outside linebacker Thaddeus Gibson wasn't the only Buckeye that delivered a strong performance during today's campus Pro Day workout.

    Outside linebacker Austin Spitler, a 6-foot-2, 243-pound projected middle-round to late-round projection, clocked a 4.23 short shuttle and a 6.7 three-cone drill with a 32-inch vertical leap and bench pressed 225 pounds 32 times, according to a league source.

    We're told that NFL scouts were extremely impressed with how Spitler performed during the linebacker drills.

    Meanwhile, Ohio State center Jim Cordle, a 6-4, 305-pound late-round to middle-round player, turned in a 4.75 short shuttle, a 7.69 three-cone drill and a 28-inch vertical leap.

    A versatile player who can even snap left-handed, Cordle bench pressed 225 pounds 23 times.

    Cordle's numbers were respectable considering he hasn't been able to train much since getting injured in the East-West Shrine game.

    Meanwhile, Gibson ran in the low 4.6 range and is being projected as a third-round to second-round pick, according to

    Safety Kurt Coleman clocked a 4.52 in the 40-yard dash with a 6.75 three-cone drill.

    Indiana (PA.) cornerback Akwasi Owusa-Ansah was at the Buckeyes' Pro Day.

    Per the report, he ran sub 4.4 in with a 4.05 20-yard shuttle.

    That's major improvement from the NFL scouting combine where his 40 time was an official 4.47 with a 4.32 in the shuttle.

    He's set to have surgery next week to repair a torn labrum.
