Players attending the 2018 Senior Bowl went through the measurement process on Tuesday, recording their height, weight, wingspan, and hand size so that teams could set up a common point of comparison between the players.
The full list of measurements can be found here, with the exception of Baker Mayfield’s. Mayfield, who was reportedly dealing with a family matter, was a late arrival on Tuesday and only arrived just in time for practice to begin. He officially measured in at 6’ 0 3/8” and 216 pounds.
Baker Mayfield - official measurements from Reese's Senior Bowl:— Reese's Senior Bowl (@seniorbowl) January 24, 2018
Height: 6003 (6'0 3/8)
Hand: 9 1/2
Arm: 30 1/2
Wingspan 30 3/8
While the measurements alone will never make or break a prospect’s career, players with standout length or weight measurements will have an easier time winning some one-on-one matchups. Keeping that in mind, here are some players who helped (or hurt) their draft stock when they walked across the stage Tuesday:
Marcell Ateman, WR, Oklahoma State
Listed at 6’3” 220 in college, Ateman actually measured a hair over six-foot-four, and at 216 pounds, avoided tight end “tweener” size.
Jaleel Scott, WR, New Mexico State
Speaking of huge receivers, Scott is nearly six-foot-five even, also measured at 216 pounds, and had nearly 34 inch arms.
Harrison Phillips, DT, Stanford
Standing 6’ 3 3/8”, 303 pounds, with 10.5 inch hands and nearly 34 inch arms, Phillips has the build to play anywhere from nose tackle to five technique on the defensive line.
Brandon Parker, OT, North Carolina A&T
Parker measured in like a prototypical offensive tackle: 6’ 7 1/4”, 303 pounds, 9 5/8” hands, and massive 35 3/8” arms.
Tyrell Crosby, OT, Oregon
Crosby was another tackle with a great weigh-in. While he was a hair under six-foot-five, his 34 3/8” arms and nearly eleven inch hands help make up the length. At 319 pounds, he also had the requisite bulk for offensive tackle or guard.
Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming
Allen was expected to measure in as the classic ideal of a quarterback’s build, and he did not disappoint in that department. He stood nearly 6’5” and 237 pounds, with 10 1/8” hands.
Kyle Lauletta, QB, Richmond
As an FCS quarterback hoping to impress among some big names, Lauletta needed to kick off his week by looking the part. Standing 6’ 2 5/8”, 217 pounds, with 9 5/8” hands, he checked the size boxes.
Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State
A minor injury during Tuesday’s Senior Bowl practice may have prematurely ended Goedert’s week, but he still impressed at the weigh-in. He measured in at 6’ 4 1/2”, 260 pounds, with 10 1/8” hands.
Chad Thomas, DE, Miami
Thomas weighed in like a scout’s definition of a defensive end - six-foot-five, 277 pounds, with 34 inch arms.
Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
The pass rusher from Oklahoma didn’t stand much higher than six-foot-one, but at 243 pounds, with 34 1/2” arms, and carrying a chiseled frame, he looked capable of playing as an outside linebacker in any defensive scheme.
Akrum Wadley, RB, Iowa
Wadley is a favorite of Dan’s, with a shifty running style that reminds him of LeSean McCoy. But the running back measured in below several thresholds: under five-foot-ten, 188 lbs, with 8 1/8 inch hands.
James Washington, WR, Oklahoma State
Washington shows up on this list because after spending his college career with a listed height of 6’1”, he measured in at 5’ 10 7/8”. The rest of his build isn’t too shabby, though - his arms are nearly 34 inches long, and at 210 pounds, he’s built like a running back.
Desmond Harrison, OT, West Georgia
To a certain point, the 25-year-old Harrison looked like a classic offensive tackle prospect - six-foot-six, with 34 3/8” arms. However, he only weighed in at 279 pounds (reportedly caused by a flu-like illness that is holding him out of the Senior Bowl).
Jeremy Reaves, S, South Alabama
Reaves was in great shape at his weigh-in, standing 5’10.5”, 204 lbs, but he only had 7 3/4” hands, which are some of the smallest on record.
Dorian O’Daniel, LB, Clemson
The Clemson linebacker weighed in much closer to safety measurements, standing 6’ 0 1/2”, 215 pounds, and with 31 1/8” arms.
Braxton Berrios, WR, Miami
Weigh-ins are never a kind place for a slot receiver like Berrios, who measured in at 5’ 8 5/8” and 179 pounds. He’ll show his worth when he gets open in space during practices.
Levi Wallace, CB, Alabama
Wallace, a former walk-on, measured with great length, standing 6’ 0 3/8” with 33 3/8 inch arms. But he only weighed 176 pounds, which won’t satisfy NFL coaches.
Marquis Haynes, DE/OLB, Mississippi
Haynes was an effective pass rusher at Ole Miss, but was listed at tweener size his whole career. It was always expected that he’d need to switch positions off the line in the NFL. That was confirmed when he measured at six foot two and 233 pounds.
