Former West Virginia wide receiver Marcus Simms, one of the better talents in the supplemental draft on July 10, worked out in front of half the league’s teams today in Maryland. Here’s what we’ve got so far.

The teams on hand included the Jacksonville Jaguars, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts, New York Jets, Washington Redskins, Kansas City Chiefs, Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons. 

The San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings both sent directors of scouting, while the Baltimore Ravens had their personnel director on hand. The Oakland Raiders had general manager Mike Mayock on hand.

Simms measured 5116 and 188 pounds. He posted a vertical jump of 36 inches with a broad jump that measured 10-foot-2.5.

He ran the 40 three times and was clocked at 4.49, 4.45 and 4.40 seconds.

We will post updates as they come in.

UPDATE 6:15 p.m.

I'm told the conditions for todays workout were pretty harsh, as the pro day was held indoors in a field house with no air conditioning and tempartures soared near 100 degrees. Regardless, Simms gutted it out.

His three-cone time came in around 6.91 seconds, and his short shuttle was 4.19 seconds despite a slip.

Simms did position drills for about 30 minutes and ran solid routes and caught the ball well. The practice quarterback was former NFL signal caller Matt Simms (no relation), who has been working with Marcus. There was another receiver on hand to break things up.

Simms spent time with all the teams who attended the workout.
