Key Senior Bowl measurements

January 26th, 2021 | Written by Rob Staton

If you missed my watch-list for the Senior Bowl yesterday, click here.

Below are some of the key measurements from today in Mobile.

The Seahawks generally avoid linemen who don’t have +33 inch arms:

Aaron Banks (G, Notre Dame)
Height: 6-5
Weight: 338
Wingspan: 82
Arms: 33 1/8
Hands: 10 1/8

Spencer Brown (T, Northern Iowa)
Height: 6-8
Weight: 314
Wingspan: 82 3/8
Arms: 34
Hands: 10 3/8

Creed Humphrey (C, Oklahoma)
Height: 6-4
Weight: 312
Wingspan: 79 4/8
Arms: 31 6/8
Hands: 9 5/8

Deonte Brown (G, Alabama)
Height: 6-3
Weight: 364
Wingspan: 80 6/8
Arms: 32 3/8
Hands: 9 1/8

Ben Cleveland (G, Georgia)
Height: 6-6
Weight: 354
Wingspan: 79 1/8
Arms: 33
Hands: 9 6/8

Landon Dickerson (C, Alabama)
Height: 6-6
Weight: 326
Wingspan: 81
Arms: 32 4/8
Hands: 10 3/8

Alex Leatherwood (T, Alabama)
Height: 6-5
Weight: 312
Wingspan: 85 3/8
Arms: 34 3/8
Hands: 9 4/8

Trey Smith (G, Tennessee)
Height: 6-5
Weight: 331
Wingspan: 83 1/8
Arms: 33 6/8
Hands: 10

If Baron Browning doesn’t go in round one with this physical profile and the extreme athleticism we know he has, it’ll be a surprise:

Baron Browning (LB, Ohio State)
Height: 6-3
Weight: 241
Wingspan: 81
Arms: 33
Hands: 10

Three defensive linemen who are expected to go early measured with sub-33 inch arms, which isn’t great news:

Levi Onwuzurike (DT, Washington)
Height: 6-3
Weight: 290
Wingspan: 80 1/8
Arms: 32 4/8
Hands: 10 2/8

Patrick Jones II (DE, Pittsburgh)
Height: 6-4
Weight: 264
Wingspan: 79 5/8
Arms: 32
Hands: 10

Carlos Basham (DE, Wake Forest)
Height: 6-3
Weight: 281
Wingspan: 81 1/8
Arms: 32 4/8
Hands: 9 1/8

Here’s one player I will definitely be going back to look at…

Janarius Robinson (DE, Florida State)
Height: 6-5
Weight: 266
Wingspan: 87
Arms: 35 6/8
Hands: 11

Robinson also ran a 4.27 short shuttle at SPARQ.

Here’s his FSU team mate:

Marvin Wilson (DT, Florida State)
Height: 6-3
Weight: 319
Wingspan: 82
Arms: 33
Hands: 10 1/8

Sadly, Ambry Thomas doesn’t have 32 inch arms:

Ambry Thomas (CB, Michigan)
Height: 5-11
Weight: 189
Wingspan: 76 4/8
Arms: 31 1/8
Hands: 8 4/8

Here are some of the skill players we identified:

D’Wayne Eskridge (WR, Western Michigan)
Height: 5-9
Weight: 188
Wingspan: 74 1/8
Arms: 30 1/8
Hands: 9

Trey Sermon (RB, Ohio State)
Height: 6-0
Weight: 213
Wingspan: 79
Arms: 32
Hands: 9 4/8

Rhamondre Stevenson (RB, Oklahoma)
Height: 5-11
Weight: 227
Wingspan: 75
Arms: 30
Hands: 9

Kenny Yeboah (TE, Ole Miss)
Height: 6-3
Weight: 247
Wingspan: 80 6/8
Arms: 33 2/8
Hands: 9 3/8

Kylin Hill (RB, Mississippi State)
Height: 5-10
Weight: 214
Wingspan: 73
Arms: 30 4/8
Hands: 9 5/8

Kadarius Tony (WR, Florida)
Height: 5-11
Weight: 189
Wingspan: 74 4/8
Arms: 30 4/8
Hands: 9 4/8

To finish, look at this monster:

Najee Harris (RB, Alabama)
Height: 6-1
Weight: 230
Wingspan: 81
Arms: 33 3/8
Hands: 10

That is a simply incredible physical profile.

    The one reason I prefer Najee over Javonte is that freakish size. I mean…that’s just not normal. It’s one thing to be a gym freak and to put on a bunch of weight…but guys like Najee and DK – that’s just a different level of genetic freakery that no weight room can make.

    • clbradley17 says:

      I listened to the Tony Pauline podcast after the title game against OSU, and Pauline raved about Harris. Not only did he say he is a dominant runner, but that he’s such an outstanding receiving back he could be lined up at receiver on some plays. I would be ecstatic with either Harris or Williams if we can draft either one. Williams is a franchise back as well, and has several PFF all-time records for a RB, makes defenders miss consistently and runs for lots of yards after contact.

  2. clbradley17 says:

    Great measurables for DE Robinson of FSU Rob, and looks like a BAMF in the highlights, getting to the QB, blocking kicks, forcing and recovering fumbles.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUR_OAIa9VE&ab_channel=NoleProductions

    RB Stevenson has some ?s but the size we like at 5’11” and 227, and is a stiff-arming power back. He split time last year with a couple other backs, and was suspended the 1st 5 games this year. Tore up a few teams this year, mainly FL in the bowl game with 18 carries for 186 yards. In a little over 90 sec. video he stiff-arms multiple players a couple different times at 1 min. and again at 1:30. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1ZRFjNsgjg&ab_channel=TypicalSooner

    Another Stevenson to watch is WR Marquez of Houston. He has speed to burn like Eskridge or Smith. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOPlvrt8WPI&ab_channel=840Sports

  3. Sea Mode says:

    DeVonta Smith declining measurements… c’mon…

    • Matt says:

      DeVonta Smith:

      5′-11.75″
      165 lbs

      That’s probably why…those are made up numbers but I wouldn’t be shocked if he was in the 160s because he’s definitely not 6’1″ or 6’2″.

    • Sea Mode says:

      Well, here’s the rest besides height and weight, which he will reportedly turn in at his Pro Day.

      Chase Goodbread
      @ChaseGoodbread

      Alabama WR Devonta Smith declined to be weighed in or measured for height at #SeniorBowl. Will do so at Alabama pro day. Size has been the only question on the electrifying Heisman winner.

      Hand 9 3/8
      Arm 31 1/2
      Wingspan 78 1/2

  4. Hunter burn says:

    Any opinion on Keith Taylor? The CB from Washington, intriguing measurements

    • John_s says:

      Sub 32” arm length and he had zero interceptions in his career which is concerning. He can cover and tackle but he doesn’t make the game changing play that you need your CB to make

  5. cha says:

    https://www.seahawks.com/news/breakout-candidates-for-the-seahawks-in-2021

    John Boyle as a motivational speaker…

    *Points at Cody Barton*
    You’re a breakout candidate!

    *Points at Darrell Taylor*
    You’re a breakout candidate!

    All of you are breakout candidates!

    Technically he’s not wrong I suppose.

    • Elmer says:

      It’s not his job to be objective. But you wonder why that article ever got written, it doesn’t provide any useful information.

      • cha says:

        I know. It is a fun job working for and with an NFL team. It’s also mind-numbingly boring at the same time because you’re handcuffed.

  6. Henry Taylor says:

    Stevenson is lighter than expected and potentially more in Seattle’s range.

  7. Zxvo3 says:

    Hey Rob I was wondering if you ever took a look at Larry Rountree from Missouri. Nagy mentioned him in the interview as one of his favorite players in the draft this year. He’s listed at 5’10 and 216 lbs, which is essentially Seattle’s physical range for RB’s.

  8. NolaHawk says:

    What’s the likelihood they come off the 33” requirement for outside corner with the success of DJ Reed? How much does the loss of Fitterer affect the scouting department?

  9. dcd2 says:

    Reading Rob’s take on Trey Smith (G – TEN) yesterday, I thought… “that sounds like the kind of guy I would immediately gloss over, and the Hawks would go ahead and take.”

    Great physical profile, highly recruited, but injury and character questions. He just feels like the kind of guy who we would draft while Aaron Banks, Ben Cleveland and Javonte Williams are all still on the board.

    • Volume12 says:

      Completely agree. Hes got tackle size, he’s nasty, a swing for the fences pick.

    • Ryan says:

      I would be happy if they did. He’s better than all those guys, IMO. Fantastic interior OL who has some remote OT flexibility, health is the biggest question mark. If he’s there at our first pick I have no problem with the selection. I know of several analysts who have him pegged as an early 2nd type player.

  10. Hawkdawg says:

    Shane Steichen to Eagles. So for those who were concerned about that possibility, it ain’t happenin’.

  11. Blitzy the Clown says:

    That’s a decent wingspan on Leatherwood.

    So far for OL I’m bullish on him, Cleveland, Banks and Dickerson.

    Also here’s a list of some things I really enjoy:
    Senior Bowl week
    Rob’s coverage of Senior Bowl week
    Rob’s pre-draft interview series
    Jim Nagy’s interviews

  12. icb12 says:

    Ifeatu Melifonwu- CB Syracuse- 6025-212-8018-900.
    If he tests athletically similar to his brother Obi, his stock will skyrocket.

    • dcd2 says:

      Trill Williams is another Syracuse DB to keep an eye on. He’s about 6’2 195 (estimate) and played outside, nickel or safety. Rumor has it he ran a 4.34 40 as well. Looks pretty long, but need to see his pro day measurements.

  13. Hoggs41 says:

    Good to see Stevenson listed at 227 as Ive seen him listed at 246 before. Also good to see Hill at 214 closer to the 220 we like. Is Cleveland and Brown to big at 354 and 364? Seems like Banks at 338 is a better weight. Im sure its easy for these guys to get further down.

  14. Volume12 says:

    Robert Rochelle, CB, C. Arkansas is an athletic freak and has 32″ arms.

    Payton Turner, DL, Houston: 6’5, 270 lbs., 35″ arms 👀

    • Volume12 says:

      And Oregon St EDGE Hamiclar Rashed w/ a really nice weigh-in. 6’3, 254, and 33″ arms.

    • Rob4q says:

      Robert Rochelle might be on the Seahawks radar!

      And watch out for this small school sleeper:

      Coastal Carolina Tarron Jackson DL

      Height – Weight – Wingspan – Arm – Hands

      6024 – 260 – 8018 – 3300 – 1018

  15. Sea Mode says:

    Unfortunately, this year it will probably be impossible to compile, but here are the first members of the 32″ arm + 77.5″ wingspan CB club to look into. As always, look for good footwork and aggressive tackling. Ordered by arm length then by wingspan:

    Hamsah Nasirildeen, S, Florida State, 6’3 1/8, 213, 34 1/4 arm, 82 3/4 wing, 10 hand
    DJ Daniel, CB, Georgia, 5’11 5/8, 183, 33 arm, 81 wing, 9 1/8 hand
    Divine Deablo, S, Virginia Tech, 6’3 3/8, 226, 32 3/4 arm, 79 1/8 wing, 9 1/2 hand
    Robert Rochell, CB, C. Arkansas, 5’11 7/8, 195, 32 3/8 arm, 79 wing, 8 3/4 hand
    Ifeatu Melifonwu, DB, Syracuse, 6’2 5/8, 212, 32 1/8 arm, 80 1/8 wing, 9 hand
    Mark Webb, CB, Georgia, 6’1 3/8, 210, 32 1/8 arm, 79 1/8 wing, 10 1/8 hand
    Benjamin St-Juste, DB, Minnesota, 6’3 3/8, 200, 32 arm, 80 1/4 wing, 9 1/4 hand
    Damar Hamlin, DB, Pittsburgh, 6’0 5/8, 201, 32 arm, 77 1/2 wing, 9 1/8 hand
    Bryan Mills, CB, NC Central, 6’0 3/4, 180, 32 arm, 77 1/8 wing, 9 hand
    *JaCoby Stevens, S, LSU, 6’1 1/4, 216, 31 3/4 arm*, 77 3/8 wing, 9 1/4 hand

    Hopefully lots of Pro Day numbers get published. If you find any, post them here and I’ll keep the list going.

    And before anyone mentions it: no, I don’t think that finding DJ Reed changes anything of what PC will look for.

    • UkAlex6674 says:

      Ifeatu Melifonwu – any relation to Obi Melinfonwu who got some love on here couple of years ago?

    • GoHawksDani says:

      I don’t care about how any of them plays…I WANT Divine Diablo (or Deablo both works for me :D). That’s almost as cool as Haha Clinton Dix or Savage or Poona Ford 😀

    • Sea Mode says:

      Can probably scratch the top name off the list:

      Tony Pauline
      @TonyPauline
      ·4m

      It was a tough day for Hamsah Nasirildeen/S/FSU, very tough. While he looks good moving forward to defend the run, its another story when he tries to move in reverse in coverage. Stiff, slow and not good. He may have to add 10 pounds and play LB. #SeniorBowl

  16. Volume12 says:

    Still like UAB’s Jordan Williams. Think he’s a poor mans Marcus Davenport & worth developing.

    Don’t know why, but I get the feeling Trey Smith might be the guy for Seattle.

  17. Can someone post Mel Kipers first mock draft?

      • Volume12 says:

        * I had #3 backwards. Should be the Phins pick from the Texans

        • Rohan Raman says:

          Bills getting Najee Harris is a terrifying thought. A better run game would have drastically improved their chances in that Chiefs game. Still probably would have lost, but if you can’t keep Mahomes on the sideline, you’re going to lose.

  18. Sea Mode says:

    Well, that didn’t take long… 😁

    Receiver’s D’Wayne Eskridge and Frank Darby have been very impressive in the early going

    Dane Brugler
    @dpbrugler
    ·6m

    D’Wayne Eskridge off to a hot start. Used his suddenness and a hard swipe to create immediate separate from Cam Bynum.

    Going to be a tough week for the CBs trying to stick with him 1v1.

    Anyone found anywhere to watch?

    • Sea Mode says:

      Surprise, surprise…

      Tony Pauline
      @TonyPauline

      Can’t emphasize how good D’Wayne Eskridge looked in the early going. Consistently winning one on ones with speed, quickness and catching everything. #SeniorBowl #WesternMichigan

    • dcd2 says:

      Darby is an interesting name. He was supposed to take the reigns from Aiyuk (who took them from Harry), but he really only played in one game this year. He got hurt and had a family issue. Along with ASU having a couple of games cancelled, he didn’t get a chance to show much.

      Going to be wild trying to gauge where some of these guys with little to no 2020 tape, and no combine end up going.

    • Sea Mode says:

      Just gonna keep piling it on:

      Field Yates
      @FieldYates
      ·1h

      Just wrapped up the first National Team practice at @seniorbowl.

      Most impressive player on the field from my view was Western Michigan WR D’Wayne Eskridge.

      Ran nasty routes, made catches outside of his frame, really fast. Fun guy to watch.

  19. Keith says:

    Rob, it’ll be interesting to see how the Seahawks go about the cornerback position. It is well known they prefer guys that have 32 inch arms as outside guys, but Pete may see DJ Reed as a reason why they should at least be flexible with that number. That’s not to say they’ll go for guys with 30 inch arms, but maybe the guys with the 31.5 inch arms aren’t as out of range as they had been in previous years.

  20. Sea Mode says:

    Ok, NFL Network coverage has started.

    • Sea Mode says:

      Welp, scratch that. It was just a 5-minute segment within the NFL Now show, and now they are moving back to talking about Super Bowl storylines. Still, incredible how 5 min. was already sufficient to have had enough of DJ and Bucky Brooks and co. bad jokes… 😬

      I guess Jim Nagy posting the 1v1s on YouTube again will be our only hope. Maybe we can petition him to make it happen a bit faster this year, if possible.

      • dcd2 says:

        A videographer and an editor would be money well spent for bringing exposure and buzz to the Senior Bowl.

        • Gohawks5151 says:

          There is nothing else going on without Pro Bowl stuff. NFL should be all over this.

        • Sea Mode says:

          They have the whole power of NFL Network at their disposal, and ESPN U will be covering as well tomorrow and Thursday. But I guess they think people don’t care to watch a practice, even in a year where there will be no Combine… 🤷‍♂️

          What network will televise the Reese’s Senior Bowl?

          The 2020 Reese’s Senior Bowl will be nationally televised by NFL Network at 1:30pmCT. The first nationally-televised Senior Bowl was in 1958 by NBC, and the contest has been on national television every year since. Practices on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will be televised live by NFL Network and the Wednesday and Thursday practices will also be covered live by ESPN on ESPNU. The NFL Network will produce hour-long recap shows each evening as well. Check your local listings.

  21. Mike says:

    Janarius robinson almost 36 inch arms. That is insane.

    I had never hear of him so I watched his highlights tape and he just looks like exactly what you would build a football player to look like.

  22. Volume12 says:

    Show of hands. Who had a day 3 DE having the 2nd most sacks (behind Chase Young) amongst all rookies last year?

    Very excited for Alton Robinson’s future.

  23. Donovan says:

    This Ringer piece suggests the floor of a DeShaun Watson trade is four first round picks. https://www.theringer.com/nfl/2021/1/26/22249395/deshaun-watson-potential-trade-offers-jets-jaguars-dolphins-texans

    If so, perhaps the team will consider trading Russell Wilson, although I’d fear for our immediate short term future under such a scenario.

    • BobbyK says:

      It depends on the first round picks and where they’re at or anticipated to be. I’d rather have the Dolphins #3 overall pick than the Chiefs next three 1st round picks combined.

      • GoHawksDani says:

        With so many holes in the roster I’d rather have something like mid R1 (13-18), mid R2, R4 and next year’s R1 and R3 than #3 only. We could obviously trade back from there but it’s really hard if you think you won’t really have another chance to pick in the top 5-10 to trade back into mid R1
        As for the Chiefs R1s those are basically R2s as I doubt KC will pick earlier than #29 in the next 3 years

        • 12th chuck says:

          they might have somewhat figured that in, knowing whatever team he goes to will be that much better ( late in the first round) draft picks

  24. Sea Mode says:

    Here are a few clips of reps:

    If he didn’t have a jersey on, I would think Landon Dickerson was another coach with the way he’s working with other players on the practice field.

    Easy to see why his teammates/coaches love him. #SeniorBowl

    Off-topic but the Kraken just announced a deal to broadcast on ROOT sports this fall.

    https://sports.mynorthwest.com/1282805/seattle-kraken-air-on-root/

  27. clbradley17 says:

    DL Levi Onwuzurike of UW has slightly shorter arms at 32.5 instead of 33, but has looked great in one on ones and against double teams.

    https://twitter.com/i/status/1354132360103653383
    https://twitter.com/TDavenport_NFL/status/1354144276012298255

    Turron Davenport, ESPN Tenn. Titans reporter said “We’re only a little into practice but Washington DL Levi Onwuzurike is already standing out. He won multiple reps in 1 on 1s and blew up a couple of running plays already during inside run.”

  28. Rob Staton says:

    Cleveland TV appearance will be streamed here:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8sgGDn30w0&feature=emb_logo

    It’s live now. I’m on after Mary Kay Cabot

  29. Hoggs41 says:

    CMon Les Nessman, it aint Stanton dog. He got it right the first time. Im guessing you hear that all the time.

  30. Frank says:

    Nice work!

  31. Frank says:

    I still get such a kick out of my two favorite people to hear talk football, are a Brit and and Irishman.

  32. charlietheunicorn says:

    Janarius Robinson (DE, Florida State)
    Ok, this is someone who the physical measurables really stand out.
    I’ve not heard of him, but worth keeping tabs on any times/testing that comes out….. could be a really intriguing guy if he can get up to 275-280 lbs.

    as for Najee Harris (RB, Alabama)
    If he can land on a team with a nice established #1 RB, he could settle in for a #2 spot (think Cowboys or Titans) and be such a beautiful weapon.

    • Ukhawk says:

      Watched the highlights on JR earlier.

      What sticks out is he looks like he plays with an attitude, plays violent and brings that edge we lack.

      Be keen to see how he fairs this week

  33. Mike says:

    What is it about Onwuzurike people like?

    there is a lot of quality analyst that like him a lot, like him Nagy in your interview.
    He kind of looks like he has the size/athletic profile of lj collier. Am I missing something?
