Raiders General Manager Mike Mayock was among those who attended Simms’ workout in Maryland, Tony Pauline of reports.

The Jaguars, Saints, Seahawks, Colts, Jets, Chiefs, Browns, Eagles, Lions, Packers, Falcons and Washington also sent representatives to watch Simms, according to Pauline. The Vikings and 49ers had their directors of scouting on hand, and the Ravens sent their personnel director.

Per Pauline, Simms measured just under six feet and weighed 188 pounds. He ran three 40-yard dashes, posting times of 4.49, 4.45 and 4.40 seconds. Simms had a 36-inch vertcial and a 10-foot, 2-1/5-inch broad jump.

Simms played three seasons at West Virginia. In 26 games, he made 87 catches for 1,457 yards and eight touchdowns, along with averaging 24.2 yards on 41 kickoff returns and 6.8 yards on 23 punt returns.

He missed all but two of WVU’s spring practices to deal with a hamstring issue and then a personal issue.

The supplemental draft is July 10.

Former Washington State safety Jalen Thompson, former Syracuse linebacker Shyheim Cullen and former junior college tight end Devonaire Clarington also have entered their names in the supplemental draft.

    Impressive stats those are not.

    Divide it by 2 and it’s basically 2 seasons of work, so he was either not playing as a freshman much at all or was hurt. Looking at those stats as 2 seasons, it’s decent for college, not sure it screams NFL draft pick though.

  2. So if I understand it correctly, Oakland who already has AB scouted this guy and the Steelers apparently have no interest.

  3. 12 other teams than the Raiders sent people to check on him, including some directors of scouting and a personnel director, yet Mayock’s name gets the headlines? Am I missing what is wrong with doing some diligent checking before the supplemental draft? Rather have this then have my GM/director ignore it.

  4. The Raiders are back to being America’s team. They’re definitely the most “must-see” team in pro sports nowadays. They’re building a great team, and everything they say or do is going to get reported on. I love it. Return To Greatness!!!

  5. The Oakland Raiders were the first victim of the Patriots dynasty and have been on a consistent, precipitous fall ever since, going from a once proud, above average franchise to a league-wide laughingstock without a home. Their most famous image is that of Chucky on the sidelines in Foxboro, covered in snow and looking like Jack Nicholson in The Shining, waiting his impending doom and wishing he was in Tampa.
