2020 NFL Combine: Standout measurements from cornerback and safeties

New, comments

One more time, here’s how they measured up.

The final group of players to pass through the Combine every year is the one featuring cornerbacks and safeties. As other players were setting up for their field drills, these players were walking up to the scale and preparing for press conferences. Now it’s their time to shine on the track. Let’s review the highlights of the measurements taken from this year’s rookie class in the secondary.

Trevon Diggs CB (Alabama)

At 6’1 3/8” and 205 lbs, the younger brother of Stefon Diggs also sports a wingspan of 78 3/8”—a long and sturdy build that could play well at pretty much any spot in the secondary.

Kristian Fulton CB (LSU)

The latest model from the cornerback factory in Louisiana measures in at 5’11 5/8” and 197 lbs, with 9 1/8” hands and 30 5/8” arms—not too small, not too big. Just right.

Jeff Gladney CB (TCU)

At 5’10 1/4”, Gladney just barely cleared the height threshold for many teams at cornerback. It helps his case that he weighed a respectable 191 lbs, and his arms measure nearly 32” in length, which gives him an impressive wingspan for his height.

Bryce Hall CB (Virginia)

Unfortunately we won’t see Hall work out as he continues rehabbing his surgically repaired ankle, but his weigh-in was encouraging. He stands 6’1 1/4” and 202 lbs, with a 78 1/2” wingspan.

Jeffrey Okudah CB (Ohio State)

Many consider Okudah to be the top cornerback in this draft, and his weigh-in was a great mark on his resume. He had the longest wingspan of any cornerback in the event at 78 5/8”, standing 6’1 1/8” and 205 lbs.

Grant Delpit S (LSU)

Delpit had a fine measurement, 6’2 1/2” and 213 lbs. His hands measured 9 1/8”, his arms 30 3/8”.

Kyle Dugger S (Lenoir-Rhyne)

Dugger’s measurements matched his freaky profile, with the largest hands (10 3/8”), longest arms (32 7/8”), and longest wingspan (78 7/8”) of any of the safeties.

Xavier McKinney S (Alabama)

McKinney’s base measurements, 6’0” and 201 lbs, were fine, though his hands were undersized at 8 5/8”.

Antoine Winfield Jr. S (Minnesota)

True to form, Winfield measured in at just above 5’9”. His dad was listed at 199 lbs, and the son weighed 203 lbs at the Combine. His 9 1/2” hands are above-average for his size, and he has a decent wingspan of 72 3/4”.
