Green Bay Packers draft watch: Ohio State DE Cameron Heyward finally works out

The Green Bay Packers probably were in the market for drafting a defensive end because of Cullen Jenkins' likely departure in free agency this offseason, and Johnny Jolly's recent arrest makes it even more likely they'll use a pick at that position.

One of several defensive ends possibly on their radar with their first-round pick, No. 32 overall, is Ohio State's Cameron Heyward, who held his campus workout on Wednesday.

It was an important workout for Heyward because he was recovering from surgery on his elbow at the NFL scouting combine a month ago and essentially didn't work out, performing only the vertical jump. It's unclear whether Heyward's performance on Wednesday was enough to affect whatever opinion a scout had on him going in.

One blogger who wrote about the workout said Heyward appears to have solidified himself as a pick in the top 25.

Heyward is the son of former NFL running back Craig "Ironhead" Heyward.
