Chat with former OSU DE Vernon Gholston

Auto Update: Off

OSU's Vernon Gholston turned in the best performance at the combine.
Welcome to The Show! On Tuesday, NFL prospect and former Ohio State DE Vernon Gholston will stop by to chat about the NFL draft, his combine performance and his time as a Buckeye.

Gholston ran a 4.61 in the 40, the third best among the defensive linemen. He put up 37 reps in the bench press, which tied him for the most of anyone at the combine. He also posted the best measurements among the DLs in the vertical jump (35.5 inches) and the broad jump (10.5 feet).

According to Gholston's Scouts Inc.'s draft profile, Gholston "has the potential to play wide-end in a four-man front and/or rush-linebacker in a 3-4 alignment. He is one of the top pass rushers in this year's class, so he should come off the board in the top-20 picks. But his inconsistency and lack of elite burst scares us for that kind of price tag."

Send in your questions now, then join Gholston on Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET!
