This just has to be the largest group of offensive linemen ever at the combine. Of the 60 linemen who were weighed in & measured, only 3 came in at less than 300 lbs. They weighed in at 299, 299, & 298 lbs. Ten tackles were 6'7" or taller, including 6'9" Sam Lightbody of Washington State.

Wow Kay Jay Harris weighed in at 241 lbs. That's nearly FB kind of poundage.

An offensive lineman from BYU benched 225 44 times! Keep in mind at the pro bowl, the best any NFL player could do was 32 by La'roi Glover. He said he had done 52 at BYU, so he was upset with his reps

Scott Young, very impressive but even more impressive is the fact by the age of 14 he became an Eagle Scout (to me that displays great character) evidently though he is very raw & inexperienced, someone who sits on the bench and develops for a couple years until either through necessity or need thrown to the wolves. he is the type of player you aquire extra late picks for and hide them in your depth chart.

I have seen Anthony Davis listed as high as 5'10 on some charts. To check in at 5'6 is eye popping. Hilarious the way these schools skew the player's measurements to make them more appealing.

true that. its the bigger names to be scrutinized that interst me however, for instance if Pac Man Jones measures less than advertised, if you where the GM of the BOYZ (HUGE) would you still take a chance on him with the #11th pick or maybe wait for him to slide to #20?

I haven't jumped on the bandwagon of needing CBs to be 6'0, 200 to play the position effectively these days. With all the new rules in place, they're required more to play the ball than they are the WR. So how small/big the WR is shouldn't really matter.

If Jones comes in at 5'9, 175, I'd be cool with that. I don't think Aaron Glenn is much bigger than that and how many Pro Bowls has he been to?

But I still wouldn't want to see them use the 11th pick on a CB...regardless of who it is. I think the position would be better addressed through free agency. Now if they're able to land a OLB/DE playmaker (Merriman or DJ) at #11 and a player like Carlos Rogers drops to 20th, then I wouldn't mind a bit.

Honestly though, expect Jones to trade the 11th pick. I think he'd be looking for a first next year and a 3rd this year to replace the pick we lost for Henson.

How are his hands for receiving? Sounds more like a TE, supposedly he runs under a 4.6

I know a few places have considered him switching positiion.
