NFL Combine 2013: Offensive line height, weight, arm length measurements


The NFL Combine is well underway, and while the ever-glamorous on-field tests don't begin until Saturday, the weigh in results are beginning to come in. The tale of the tape for the offensive linemen is in the table below, and it even comes with a handy sort option, all courtesy of Alfie Crow over at Big Cat Country.

Alabama's D.J. Fluker was tops in the weight department, despite losing 16 pounds since the Senior Bowl, and he weighed in at 6'5, 339 pounds. His arm length of 36 3/4" was also, unsurprisingly, tops in the group, so really, there's no real way around it - Fluker is a beast of a man and the most physically imposing human being among a rather large group of similarly physically imposing human beings.

Tennessee State's Rogers Gaines (6'6"/334/36 2/8" arms and Alabama A&M's Jamaal Johnson-Webb (6'5"/313/35.75"), as our own Jared Stanger pointed out, will be two under the radar small-school players to look further at because of their impressive size and arm length, two features that Seattle seems to really key in on.

Here at Field Gulls we've identified a few players that Seattle might have some interest in, and so far, each and every one of them have been impressive in these categories. Jonathan Cooper weighed in 6'2, 311, with 32" arms, and though he's maybe the most talented of the group, his measureables were actually the most 'average.'

Jordan Mills, a tackle/guard prospect out of Louisiana Tech, also recently linked to Seattle, measured in at 6'5, 316 pounds with 34" arms. Mills' size is very intriguing -- he's still 'short' enough to kick inside to guard, if that's where Seattle likes him, in theory, but has great size (316 pounds) and arm length to reach out and get ahold of defenders and move defensive tackles. It's still up in the air as to whether he projects best at the next level as a guard or tackle, but that's exactly the type of player Seattle typically is looking for. Tough and versatile.

Larry Warford, a probable 2nd round pick that hails from Kentucky, measured in at a girthy 6'3, 332 pounds with 33.38" arms. Warford was an immovable force on the inside for Kentucky, and fared very well against some of the Draft's top nose tackles while playing in the SEC. He's a guy that I could certainly see the Seahawks having interest in because of his elite physicality.

Brennan Williams, a tackle out of North Carolina, has been on our radar here at Field Gulls since Jared Stanger pointed him out as a possible target, and his measureables didn't disappoint - 6'6, a solid 318 pounds, with 34" snakes for arms. Williams likely range is anywhere from the 2nd round to the 5th round, as he's coming off of a labrum injury, but I could see his stock rise in the coming weeks because of his physical attributes. The dude can play, too.

Menelik Watson, a guy that's being touted as a first-round pick these days, measured in at 6'5, 310 pounds with 34" arms. I'm more or less off of the Watson train because his perceived stock has shot up into the first round, but if you're looking for Watson-lite, check out my boy Vince Painter, who measured in at 6'4, 306 pounds, with 34" arms. Painter, who played DT for a year at Virginia Tech before moving to guard and then tackle, comes in a bit shorter than expected, but his arm length is no surprise. I like Painter because he too has surprisingly nimble feet and moves around at ease -- he's a gym rat that put up 500 pounds on front squat and 330+ on the power clean, so you know there's an element of power to him. At 6'4, he's closing in on the short side for an NFL tackle, so he might even project at RG with the ability to swing outside if necessary. He actually reminds me of J.R. Sweezy in the way that he moves, so he's a guy to monitor.

Speaking of Virginia Tech's offensive line, Nick Becton, who lined up opposite Painter at LT, looks really good on paper, and deserves a second look on tape. He measured in at 6'5, a very impressive 323 pounds, with 35.5" arms. He's also a late-round or UDFA type of prospect to monitor.

Check out the rest of the measurements below and let me know who stands out.
