The Senior Bowl Weigh-In is done and we have official numbers on a number of NFL Draft prospects. It may seem silly at times, but knowing firm heights, weights, wingspans, arm lengths and more can help NFL teams know if players fit their system and what positions they fit into. Take a team like the Dallas Cowboys or Seattle Seahawks whose defensive system prefer CBs with 32 inch arms or longer. It is good to see how these measurements fit.
If you want to take a look at the weigh-in results, we have a great sortable table by position.
Here are some quick initial thoughts and observations I had as they came in.
-Army EDGE Andre Carter came in with a great weigh-in at 6’6 1/4 and 82 ⅛ inch wingspan. His weight was a bit questionable at only 252 pounds, so he will need the right system fit to work.
-Auburn EDGE Derick Hall has good bulk at 252 pounds and LONG arms at 34 ⅜ inches. He is a riser.
-Boise State Safety JL Skinner III comes in slightly thinner than listed at only 211 pounds. He may be trying to show he is fast enough to be a coverage safety and not an in the box only player.
-BYU OL Blake Freeland had great length with 34 inch arms and coming in at 6’7.5 and 312 pounds. He is a big dude who may play inside.
-BYU QB Jaren Hall came in a tad short at only 6’0 ⅛ but it isn’t egregious
-Florida OL O’Cyrus Torrence looks like a monster. He slimmed down a bit to 337 pounds, but his wingspan of 84 inches is massive for an interior lineman. Competing to be the top guard off the board.
-Georgia RB Kenny McIntosh had a compact build at 5’11 ⅞ and 210 pounds. He might have more power than people think.
-Georgia Tech EDGE Keion White looks the part. At 6’4 ¾ and 280 pounds, he can fit so many systems. 33 ⅝ inch arms aren’t bad either. Big riser.
-Houston WR Tank Dell came in at a good height at 5’8 ⅜ but is only 163 pounds. He is an incredible athlete and playmaker, but will some teams pass due to his size?
-Kansas State CB Julius Brents has massive length. At 6’3 and 202 pounds, he has 33 ¾ inch arms. Could fit the Seahawks or Cowboys.
-Maryland OL Jaelyn Duncan has had a rough end to the season and his weigh-in was surprising. At only 298 pounds, Duncan is pretty light for a LT, though his 80 ⅝ wingspan is okay. He needs a big week.
-Miami (FL) CB Tyrique Stevenson had a solid build at 6’0 ¼ and 204 pounds with 32 ⅜ inch arms. His length and experience should make him a Top 100 pick.
-Mississippi WR Jonathan Mingo is a unique WR build. At 6’1 ⅜ and 226 pounds, he is big, long and physical. It could lead to a rise in his draft stock.
-North Carolina OL Asim Richards came in at 6’4 and 307 pounds with 34 ⅛ inch arms. Great size and length for an underrated prospect.
-North Dakota State OL Cody Mauch disappointed with only 79 ¾ inch wingspan and 32 ⅛ inch arms. He may have to move inside to Guard, even with first round buzz.
-Ohio State OT Dawand Jones gets the weigh-in award. At 6’8 ⅛ and 375 pounds he had 36 ⅝ inch arms and an amazing 89 ½ inch wingspan. Even his hands at 11 ⅜ are among the largest EVER in NFL history for any player. He is a specimen with upside.
-Oregon State TE Luke Musgrave came in at 6’5 ½ and 255 pounds. He has the size and athleticism to profile as a Top 50 pick.
-Princeton WR Andrei Isoivas bulked up to 212 pounds. If he maintains his speed, he may be a dangerous weapon this week.
-Tennessee QB Hendon Hooker has NFL QB size at 6’3 ⅝ and 208 pounds. His hands were a solid 10 ½ inches as well. Even with the injury, it was a good start to the week.
-Tulane RB Tyjae Spears hit 5’9 ⅝ and 204 pounds, a great weight. If he keeps his athleticism at that size, Spears could sneak into Day 2.
-Washington State Lb Daiyan Henley had solid size at 6’0 ⅞ and 230 pounds. He is still underrated and could get a lot of NFL tackles.
-Wisconsin DL Keeanu Benton came in with good leverage size at 6’3 ½ and 312 pounds. His arms are long too at 33 ¾ inches. Name to keep in mind this week.
-Texas RB Roschon Johnson came in shorter than expected at 6’0 ½ still at 225 pounds. It is good actually and gives him NFL starter size.
-Tennessee OT Darnell Wright came in at 6’5 ⅛ and 342 pounds with 34 ⅛ inch arms. Solid length for a starting OT.
-SMU WR Rashee Rice came in much shorter than listed at 6’0 ½. It isn’t great for Rice who is trying to play his way into Round 1.
-Shepherd QB Tyson Bagent surprised with good size at 6’2 ¾ and 9 ½ inch hands. He clears the necessary NFL thresholds.
-Oklahoma OL Wanya Morris had an exceptional 35 ⅜ inch arms. Crazy long.
