Clemson OT Isaiah Battle attracts 25 teams to pro day workout

Representatives from 25 NFL teams, including an offensive line coach from the Buffalo Bills, were on hand Tuesday for the pro day workout of Clemson offensive tackle Isaiah Battle.

The supplemental draft will be held Thursday, and Battle is expected to be the first player selected in the supplemental draft since Josh Gordon became a second-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2012's supplemental draft.

Battle (6-foot-6 1/8, 312 pounds) went through a workout that was held indoors and run on FieldTurf.

Battle ran the 40-yard dash in 5.29 and 5.21 seconds. He had a 24 1/2-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot-5 broad jump. He performed 12 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, but had this exercise cut short because of a cramp in his arm.

Battle has an 85 1/4-inch wing span and 35 3/8-inch arms.

Battle could be selected somewhere in the fourth round of the supplemental draft. A team that expects to have a good 2015 season, and therefore believes that it will be picking late in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, might be inclined to pick Battle late in the third round of the supplemental draft.

There are seven players eligible for the supplemental draft.
