Senior Bowl measurements impact some draft picks

Here are some of the players who's measurements may damage draft position.

QB Tyler Wilson's draft stock took a hit when his tiny hands measured only 8 5/8 inches. No QB in the last 3 years at the Combine has had hands smaller than 9 inches (Jimmy Clausen), so he may have a fumble problem in the NFL.

RB Ontario McCalebb's 5-10 1/8 height is OK, but he only weighed 164 pounds, so he's probably a returner only.

Short arms (33 inches are considered a minimum for an OT) are the problem that may cause some top OT prospects to move inside to OG, and here are their names:

OT Justin Pugh's arms measured only 31 1/2 inches.

OT/OG Dallas Thomas' arms measured only 32 inches.

OT Oday Abushi's arms measured slightly under at 32 7/8 inches.

OG Larry Warford has lsot 10 pounds (down to 333), but his arms only measure 31 7/8 inches.

OT D. J. Fluker measured an inch shorter than listed (6-4 7/8), but has gained 20 pounds, he's now up to 355 pounds.

WR Connor Vernon has short arms (29 3/4 inches) for a guy 6-0 1/4 tall.

WR Quinton Patton measured 2 inches shorter than listed, at 6 feet even.

WR Markus Wheaton almost an inch shorter at 5-11 1/8, and has small hands (8 1/2 inches).

TE Vance McDonald is just too short (6-2 3/8 inches) to stay at TE, though he has 34 1/8 inch arms, and at 262 pounds, he might may a good FB or H-Back.

TE Phillip Lutzenkirchen only has 6-3 1/8 inch arms.

.

TE Nick Kusa was the biggest TE, at 6-5 1/2, 271 pounds (Alabama's Michael Williams weighed 269 pounds), but only has 9 inch hands.

NT Sylvester Williams only weighed 313 pounds, down from 320.

NT Brandon Williams is now up to 341 pounds, so I guess it's no more 8 sack seasons for him.

Here are the links to the measurements. WalterFootball.com breaks them down by position, while NationalFootballPost.com also includes their wingspan, and WalterFootball.com doesn't.
