NFL Combine 2020: Defensive back weigh-in results & measurements

New, comments

Keep in mind the Packers’ height requirements when deciding which DBs to look at closely.

The final set of measurements is in for prospects attending the NFL Scouting Combine. On Thursday, the defensive backs measured up after being split up into separate groups for cornerbacks and safeties.

The Green Bay Packers, of course, have some typical height requirements of their defensive backs. Earlier this week, Packers GM Brian Gutekunst joked that Jaire Alexander’s 5102 height value was right at the “Mendoza Line” that the team holds for the position, so we can still effectively cross any player off the list if he is shorter than 5-foot-10. At corner this year, that was about a third of the class, though no real big names missed the cut. The same cannot be said for the safeties, however, as the one player who came in short of that cutoff is a notable prospect.

Many of this year’s corners are well above the Packers’ height cutoff, with a whopping 15 of the 36 players coming in at six feet or taller. Most of the top prospects in this year’s group are in that height range, including Jeff Okudah and A.J. Terrell. On the especially large side are Trevon Diggs (Stefon’s little brother), Bryce Hall, and Lamar Jackson (not that one), all of whom are over 6-foot-1.

Perhaps one of the more disappointing numbers here is the height on Minnesota’s Antoine Winfield, Jr. Given Gutekunst’s comments this week, it would be difficult to imagine them drafting a safety who is more than an inch shorter than Alexander.

Keep an eye on Kyle Dugger from Lenoir-Rhyne the rest of the week, however. He had the biggest hands of any defensive back here, and his 78-1/2 inch wingspan is something that one would expect more from a lineman or linebacker than a safety. He could well have a great workout and impress teams significantly this week.
