Defensive tackle Deon Simon (6-foot-4 5/8, 317 pounds) stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine, where he posted the top bench press number (35 reps of 225 pounds) among defensive linemen. Simon had a good pro day workout, moving around well in the positional drills.

Defensive back Imoan Claiborne (5-9 7/8, 193) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 and 4.56 seconds. He had a 39-inch vertical jump and 10-foot broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.58 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.28 seconds. He also performed 13 strength lifts. His performance in the positional workout was described as very smooth and fluid, and he caught the ball well. Claiborne is a potential free-agent pickup for a team following the 2015 NFL Draft.
