Simon won't work out but is still doing work

Follow Noon | Givler | Axelrod | Birmingham

INDIANAPOLIS - The NFL Combine is the biggest job interview that any football player will have in their career and seven Buckeyes will get their chances to meet with NFL executives and head coaches as they explain why a team should take a chance on them in the draft.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer couldn't say enough good things about John Simon during the 2012 season and now Simon is hoping to find a team that will love him as much as Meyer loved him.

As everyone can remember, Simon was unable to play in the season finale against Michigan due to injury, a tough blow for a senior who was very much part of the identity of the Ohio State team. Simon was also slowed by injury at the Senior Bowl and cut that trip short so medical questions will certainly be asked of Simon as teams make decisions about who they may want to draft and give a substantial amount of money to down the line.

We caught up with Simon on Saturday to talk to him about his starting NFL Combine process and to see how he has prepared for this big weekend of activity.
