    Might as well start a thread about this. Surprises so far among the o-linemen are some arm lengths. It's not a deal breaker but studies have shown it does make a difference in most cases. Billy price one of the top centers has 32" arms as does will Hernandez. The NFL usually want at a minimum 33".

    Sequan Barkley weighed iñ at 233. That's pretty heavy for him. Will it affect his skill drills? We will see. :cool:

    Short arms don't bother me too much for the interior guys. They can' make up for it. Short arms for an OT are very much a problem though.

    Saquon reminds me a bit of Lev Bell. He should drop 20 lbs and play around 215.

    Bell certainly became a much better RB when he dropped the weight.

    That dropped weight didn't make Bell any faster though :lolol:

    Maybe not faster but quicker and more agile.

    Maybe worth a look if he drops far enough. Pouncey won't play forever and we could probably get him for a steal now.:cool:

    QBs, WRs, and TEs today.

    I'll be keeping an eye on Lamar Jackson, James Washington and Dallas Goeddert.

    Lamarr Jackson not running today. Disappointing as a fan.

    I get he wants to showcase his throwing but his athleticism is his greatest strength. I would have showed it off.

    If you could keep an eye on Hamilton from Penn St I read so many good things about him but I watched him at the Shrine game and the Senior Bowl and he couldn't catch a cold. He has good numbers so I am very curious how his hands are today. The reason I am mentioning this is cause I have read his name mentioned with our team a lot.......TY in advance. :thumbs_up:

    Yeah I wanted more out of Hamilton at the Senior Bowl but didn't get it.

    Intriguing though because he looks like AB running routes. So smooth in and out of his breaks. Gotta improve those hands though.

    Barkley is killing it. Too bad the Steelers haven't sucked bad enough to be in a position to get him or Chubb.

    The giants will draft barkley with their two pick, they cant pass on him, if they do they just took a big weapon away from eli and their offense....

    He’s avoiding being cast as a receiver. He can run 4.4’s, nothing to prove.

    Running a fast 40 doesn't project him as a WR.

    He is an elite athlete who can throw the ball.

    He's not an elite Passer who can run.

    I think his throwing skills were good enough today, I think he should have come out and ran 4.35 and tried to be drafted higher.

    Not sure he did much today to change his draft status. He still has his pro day though.
