Key Senior Bowl measurements

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

      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

    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.

    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.

    Another Stevenson to watch is WR Marquez of Houston. He has speed to burn like Eskridge or Smith.

  3. Sea Mode

    DeVonta Smith declining measurements… c’mon…

    • Matt

      DeVonta Smith:

      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

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

      Chase Goodbread

      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

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

    • John_s

      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

    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

      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

        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

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

  7. Zxvo3

    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

    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

    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

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

    • Ryan

      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

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

    • Rob Staton

      Well we might all be pining for him in a few days!

  11. Blitzy the Clown

    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

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

    • dcd2

      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

    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.

    • Rob Staton

      They signed DJ Fluker.

      Nobody is ‘too big’.

  14. Volume12

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

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

    • Volume12

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

      • Gohawks5151

        That’s good news for him. I’m really anxious to see him test. Didn’t have as spectacular season compared to the year prior so tests will be make or break.

        • Volume12

          Me too.

    • Rob4q

      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

    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

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

      • Rob Staton


        • Elmer

          As I recall, Obi’s desire to be an NFL player got called into question. Is Obi still in the league? I hope that his brother has plenty of drive. The

    • GoHawksDani

      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

        Haha. There’s an OL named David Moore if we want to start a collection…

      • cha

        Thunder Justice Keck

    • Sea Mode

      Can probably scratch the top name off the list:

      Tony Pauline

      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

    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.

    • no frickin clue

      You mean Jordan Smith I think right? I like him as well. Has nice burst off the line.

      • Volume12

        Yes. Sorry.

    • RIP Sonics

      I love Tony Fair on UAB. Reminds me of big red. I don’t see him projected very high but he is a difference maker and always stands out when i watch that defense.

  17. millhouse-serbia

    Can someone post Mel Kipers first mock draft?

      • Volume12

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

        • Rohan Raman

          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.

          • Volume12

            For sure. They desperately need to get their running game going.

  18. Sea Mode

    Well, that didn’t take long… 😁

    Tony Pauline

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

    Dane Brugler

    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

      Surprise, surprise…

      Tony Pauline

      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

      • Gohawks5151

        Heart break incoming… Hopefully he drops into the Terry Mclaurin range for you man!

        • Sea Mode


          I’m not getting my hopes up. Maybe him being an older prospect could push him down a bit.

    • dcd2

      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

      Just gonna keep piling it on:

      Field Yates

      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

    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

    Ok, NFL Network coverage has started.

    • Sea Mode

      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

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

        • Gohawks5151

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

        • Sea Mode

          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

    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

    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.

    • Sea Mode

      His get off was one of the best in the class, but when I watched him, he seemed to have no plan at all if that didn’t work. I guess that’s what NFL coaching is for. Hopefully he can keep putting it together.

    • cha

      I’m disappointed. Pete had him down for 8 sacks this summer.

      • Big Mike

        No that was Darrell Taylor.

    • Rob Staton


      I thought he did OK. I’m not sure we saw anything that exciting.

  23. Donovan

    This Ringer piece suggests the floor of a DeShaun Watson trade is four first round picks.

    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

      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

        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

          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

    Here are a few clips of reps:

  25. Sea Mode

    Dane Brugler

    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

  26. cha

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

    • Big Mike

      Hope the etench of being on the same network the Mariners are on doesn’t get all over them.

  27. clbradley17

    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.

    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

    Cleveland TV appearance will be streamed here:

      Good stuff Rob!

      • Sea Mode

        Really good so far.

        Surprised you resisted the urge to tell Browns fans straight out how jealous we are of Chubb after passing on him. 😢

    • Sea Mode

      Enjoyable listen and well done. Hope you get some invites from Seattle media.

      I will admit, though, “offensive” line still gets me sometimes… 😜

    • Zxvo3

      That was fantastic. I’m glad you got a chance to show your knowledge of the NFL draft and hopefully it leads to more opportunities in the future

    • TomLPDX

      That was so awesome, Rob! You know your stuff and confident in your opinion. Loved it. Now, we need to get you more media savvy with your backdrop…a naked ceiling light just ain’t gonna cut it dude.

      • Rob Staton

        Yes I know. I’m limited with what I have though. I have two living rooms in my house to record from and don’t have an office. The signal is terrible everywhere else. And the lighting is always going to be crap when it’s evening here.

    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.

      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

    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?

      Rob talked about him specifically in his interview today. I time-stamped it in the link, so it should go right to it. If not, it’s at 52:18 of the video.

        Thanks I appreciate it sounds like he’s disruptive.

        I’m defining not very good at telling if interior lineman are good or not.
