Combine Weigh-Ins OT Version

Here is the Offensive Tackles weigh-ins from the Combine, will post the rest of the positions when they weigh in


Bruce Campbell

Official Height: 6'6 3/8"

Official Weight: 314 lbs.

Arm length: 36.25 inches

Draft Projection: Top 15

Campbell had the best height/weight/length combination of the morning. Thirty-three inch arms are the bare minimum for an NFL OT, and Campbell blew that out of the water.

Combine that with his excellent height and clean weight, and he has the prototype LT body.

Anthony Davis

Height: 6'5" exactly

Weight: 323 lbs.

Arm length: 34 inches

Draft Projection: Top 15

A solid showing from Anthony Davis. He has all the skill in the world to be a dominant OT in the NFL, but there are major concerns about his competitive fire and commitment to football.

He has also battled weight issues at times. He'll need to keep his weight right around the 320 mark to retain his remarkably quick feet, which give him high first round value.

Russel Okung

Height: 6'5 1/4"

Weight: 307 lbs.

Arm Length: 36 inches

Draft Projection: Top 5

The vast majority of scouts have Okung ranked as the top offensive lineman in this year's draft.

He has outstanding athleticism for a man of his size, and is truly a technician in his pass sets. Scouts found out this morning that he has exceptionally long arms, a tool that he uses to advantage in pass protection better than almost anyone.

Only knock on him is his perceived lack of aggressiveness in run blocking. Doesn't display a nasty streak in that area, which is paramount in being truly successful...

Jared Veldheer

Height: 6'8 1/8"

Weight: 312 lbs.

Arm Length: 33 inches

Draft Projection: Late Second-Early Third...but trending up

Veldheer comes from tiny Division-II Hillsdale College, in Hillsdale, Michigan. As you can see from his measurables, he is an absolute mammoth.

Scouts were a bit disappointed this morning with his relatively short arms. For a man that tall, scouts were hoping for 36"-37" arms.

Despite that, rumors are flying that Veldheer may run a sub-5.0 40-yard dash. If he does that, expect his draft stock to continue to climb.

Trent Williams

Height: 6'4 5/8"

Weight: 315 lbs.

Arm Length: 34.25 inches

Draft Projection: Mid-First Round

The buzz about Williams heading into the combine was that his weight/measurables would be significantly less than the 6'5", 330 lbs. he was listed at while playing for Oklahoma.

Unfortunately for Williams, those rumors became reality this morning. NFL left tackles these days are usually taller than 6'5", so Williams may find himself on the right side.

After a disappointing morning, a strong workout is now a must for Williams to stay in the mid-first round range.

Charles Brown

Height: 6'5 3/8"

Weight: 303 lbs.

Arm Length: 34.25 inches

Draft Projection: Late First/Early Second

Brown arrived at USC as a gangly tight end, and left as a menacing left tackle. He gained a lot of notoriety for protecting Mark Sanchez's blindside last year.

Like many former tight ends, he is a bit thin and could stand to put on more weight. Scouts are tweeting that he helped himself a lot this morning by weighing over 300 lbs., so his draft stock may be on the rise.

His athleticism will be on display during the workouts. Must shed the "finesse" label...

Bryan Bulaga

Height: 6'5 3/8"

Weight: 315 lbs.

Arm Length: 33.25 inches

Draft Projection: Top 15

Heading into the combine, Bulaga's detractors cited two main concerns: His short arms, and his thyroid condition that kept him out of a few games this year.

He didn't help himself much this morning during the weigh-in, as his arms came in at just over 33". While that isn't a deal breaker for playing OT in the NFL, it doesn't help his stock.

He still has loads of talent and toughness and will be a high pick come April. My best guess is he'll have a solid career in the NFL, though on the right side of the line.

Tony Washington

Height: 6'6 1/8"

Weight: 311 lbs.

Arm Length: 35.5 inches

Draft Projection: Third-Fifth round

Washington is another small school prospect who dominated at the Division II level. Scouts were very impressed by his measurables this morning, and he may have cemented himself into the third round.

As with any small school prospect, questions about his ability to perform against elite competition will persist, but he started the weekend off very well.

Here is the OTs, I could make new fanposts for the rest of the positions or just add on to here, just post whatever you think I should do in the comments

Jason Fox

  • Height: 6'7"
  • Weight: 303 lbs.
  • Arm Length: 34 1/2 in.
  • Hand Size: 9 1/2 in.
  • College: Miami
  • Conference: ACC

While Fox has been a starter for four years at both right and left tackle his foot agility and lateral range may be on the marginal side for a left tackle in the NFL. He is a tough athlete that has proven his willingness to play with pain. He still needs improvement in his temperament on the field. He does not always finish blocks off or look to punish opponents as often as he could. Fox’s status may drop some in the draft as he will need rehab on an injured knee that he was playing with during his senior season. He is not a natural knee bender and will play with his pads too high at times.

Kyle Calloway

  • Height: 6'6"
  • Weight: 323 lbs.
  • Arm Length: 33 1/4 in.
  • Hand Size: 10 1/8 in.
  • College: Iowa
  • Conference: Big 10

Calloway is another in a long line of Iowa linemen that should have a long career in the NFL. He is not the elite athlete that Gallery or Steinbach were but he has enough initial quickness to get out to pick up the edge rusher. He has excellent hand use and will consistently work to finish his blocks off and has a bit of a nasty temperament on the field. Enough of a knee bender to stay under his pads and will bring his feet with him to sustain and redirect blocks with movement. While he has played tackle on both sides as well as some at guard his best position is probably going to be on the right side in the NFL.

Selvish Capers

  • Height: 6'4"
  • Weight: 308 lbs.
  • Arm Length: 34 in.
  • Hand Size: 10 in.
  • College: West Virginia
  • Conference: Big East

Capers is a converted tight end that made the move prior to his sophomore year and has shown steady improvement each year. While he has the speed and initial quickness to play on the left side, he is probably best suited to play right tackle. He is an adequate knee bender in pass protection and will let his pad level get a bit high but does play with a good base and often manages to recover in time to ride opponents by the pocket when pass blocking. Would like to see him finish blocks off more consistently but at least he doesn’t back down from a challenge. Still needs some work on his blocking angles as well as how quickly he picks up blocks on his own but when he knows what he needs to do he can look decisive.

Vlad Ducasse

  • Height: 6'4"
  • Weight: 332 lbs.
  • Arm Length: 34 3/4 in.
  • Hand Size: 9 5/8 in.
  • College: Massachusetts
  • Conference: Colonial

Ducasse is a three-year starter at tackle that translates inside to guard for the next level. He came to the U.S. from Haiti in 2002 and that was his first exposure to playing the game of football. He is very athletic for his size with foot quickness, agility and body control but due to his limited experience he often takes poor angles and is not always very quick to recognize stunts and twists by the defensive front. When he has no doubt as to what he is supposed to do, Ducasse looks dominating and powerful. While he is not apt to be an instant impact player, Ducasse has a chance to become a quality starter due to his size, power and athleticism.

Roger Saffold

  • Height: 6'4"
  • Weight: 316 lbs.
  • Arm Length: 33 5/8 in.
  • Hand Size: 9 3/8 in.
  • College: Indiana
  • Conference: Big 10

Saffold is a good collegiate lineman who started at left tackle for three consecutive years at Indiana. He lacks the massive stature that teams are looking for in a left tackle and may be lacking a step in quickness to play on the left side but should be able to find a home on the right side or even inside at guard. He has above-average initial quickness and does a good job of getting a fit with his hands to control and steer opponents on by the hole or pocket. He understands blocking angles and does a good job of recognizing stunts and twists up front and keeps his head on a swivel when in pass pro. While he doesn't really jump off the screen at you, the end result is that he consistently gets the job done and often makes it look pretty easy.

Ed Wang

  • Height: 6'5"
  • Weight: 314 lbs.
  • Arm Length: 33 3/4 in.
  • Hand Size: 10 1/4 in.
  • College: Virginia Tech
  • Conference: ACC

Wang is a second generation Chinese-American whose parents were Olympians for the Chinese Olympic team in the ‘70s. He is a starting left tackle for a major college program and is still learning the finer points of playing on the offensive line after moving from the tight end position in 2006. He has good initial quickness as well as downfield speed but is not a natural knee bender and tends to let his pad level get too high. He can be inconsistent in his blocking angles and does not finish his blocks off as well as you’d like.

Adam Ulatoski

  • Height: 6'5"
  • Weight: 300 lbs.
  • Arm Length: 33 1/4 in.
  • Hand Size: 9 5/8 in.
  • College: Texas
  • Conference: Big 12

Ulatoski has excellent length and long arms but is lacking some in bulk and needs to develop more strength and power. He is not a natural knee bender and will let his weight get too far forward at times as he lunges after blocks. Once he gets his hands on opponents he can control and steer them on by the pocket but he does not have real quick hands and can struggle to re-fit when opponents shed his block. He is a hard worker and will show effort to finish blocks off but is not a real nasty blocker on a consistent basis. He has adequate lateral range in pass protection but will struggle to recover and right himself when pass rushers comes back inside on him.

Sam Young

Young was a blue chip prospect, out of Florida, that became an instant starter his freshman year and has been a mainstay on the offensive line for the Irish. He is a massive blocker with long arms that can simply engulf opponents once he gets his hands on them. He lacks top initial quickness and can be beaten off the edge by explosive edge rushers. While he has started at both left tackle and on the right side he is best suited to be a right tackle in the NFL.
