Report: Defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer scouts Florida State's Pro Day

Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer was one of several high profile coaches hanging out in Tallahassee during Florida State's Pro Day. Cornerback Patrick Robinson, defensive tackle Budd Thacker and linebacker Dekoda Watson were three of 14 players working out in front of "30 representatives from NFL and CFL teams", writes ESPN's Heather Dinich.

A few other highlights:

  • Jamie Robinson had a 10-foot, 2-inch standing broad jump, which barely beat receiver Rod Owens’ 10-foot, 1 ½-inch effort. Owens also had a 34 ½-inch vertical jump.
  • Defensive tackle Budd Thacker led the way in the bench press with 31 repetitions at 225 pounds.

Additional participants included: deep snapper Zack Aronson, receiver Louis Givens, receiver Richard Goodman, defensive tackle Justin Mincey, tight end Caz Piurowski, defensive tackle Kendrick Stewart and linebacker Recardo Wright. One-time FSU linebacker Jae Thaxton and receiver Preston Parker also participated.

As for specific players that Zimmer is interested in, who knows. At the very least, we can assume he's leaving no stone unturned when it comes to draft preparation for the defense.
