The NFL Scouting Combine is here and we have finally begun on-field workouts. As a result we have the final weigh-in and physical measurement information for the first group of players in attendance and 40 times are starting to come in gradually.
This group consists of the running backs, offensive linemen, and special teams players, who were available to the media on Thursday afternoon for interviews.
One of the trends observed this week is that the arm measurements from the Senior Bowl — particularly for offensive linemen — were shown to be woefully inaccurate. The Combine has the same individual measure players’ arms and hands each year, which leads to consistent results. For some players, however, their Combine measurements were an inch or more longer than the reported numbers from the Senior Bowl. This can impact how a team views a particular player, particularly when deciding whether a lineman can play tackle or needs to slide inside to guard.
At running back, there were a few minor surprises, but Leonard Fournette tipped the scales as expected, coming in at 6 feet flat and 240 pounds. Wisconsin running back Corey Clement is shorter than advertised, landing at just 5’10”, but he is built like a rock at 220 pounds.
Here are all the players’ measurements from Wednesday and workout results from Thursday and Friday. Be sure to scroll up/down and left/right to see all the results. Alternately, click the heading to bring up the results in a new page.
