This is the 2013 NFL Combine Weigh-In Recap for the defensive linemen. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.


2013 NFL Combine: Weigh-In Recap - Defensive Linemen

  • Throughout the 2012 season and in the early going of 2013, Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei has been the consensus top-rated defensive lineman. Lotulelei had a superb senior season that featured his power and explosive speed. At the Combine, Lotulelei measured 6-foot-3, 311-pounds. That was one inch shorter and 14 pounds lighter than his listed numbers. The difference isn't significant, and the lower weight could be by design to help him in the 40-yard dash. Lotulelei should perform well in Indianapolis.

  • One of the fastest-rising prospects since the end of the season has been Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd. The Gators had listed Floyd at 6-foot-3, 301 pounds. That turned out to be very accurate as Floyd was 6-3, 297 in Indianapolis. It was good for Floyd that he didn't check in smaller than expected.



  • Florida State defensive end Brandon Jenkins checked in a lot smaller than expected. Coming off a foot injury that cost him the 2012 season, Jenkins was 6-foot-2, 251 pounds. Jenkins had been listed at 6-foot-3, 260 pounds by Florida State. Weighing in at 250 forces Jenkins to outside linebacker in the NFL. In a 4-3 defense, he could play linebacker on run downs and rush as an end in passing situations if he can prove to play linebacker effectively. However, it is more likely that the lighter weight could force Jenkins into being a situational pass rusher in a 4-3 defense. His best fit would be as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

  • Seminoles' teammate Bjoern Werner has had his weight all over the place over the last year and a half. During the 2011 season, he was said to be in the 270s. In 2012, he was listed at 255 pounds. At the Combine, Werner measured 6-foot-3, 266 pounds. That weight is a nice, happy medium. It allows Werner to be a 4-3 defensive end or a 3-4 outside linebacker. Werner has some natural power and explosion, so he should perform well in Indianapolis.

  • Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore (6-5, 250) came in as advertised. He actually was an inch taller than his listed height by the Aggies. Moore could fit as a 3-4 outside linebacker, but if he is drafted into a 4-3 scheme, he should add weight for the NFL. The good news for Moore and potential teams is he has the frame to get that done.



  • It was a mixed weigh-in for LSU's Barkevious Mingo. He checked in at 6-foot-4, 241 pounds. That is near his listed numbers (6-5, 240), but Mingo admitted to playing the 2012 season around 230 pounds. Clearly he can't play defensive end in the NFL unless he can add 20 pounds. Mingo would fit best as a 3-4 outside linebacker in the NFL. If he is drafted into a 4-3, he will have to play outside linebacker, similarly to Von Miller. However, Mingo still lacks Miller's tenacity and physicality. Mingo is very fast and should run extremely well at the Combine.

  • Oregon outside linebacker Dion Jordan (6-6, 248) will have shoulder surgery after the Combine, but his weigh-in went well. He was an inch shorter and five pounds heavier than his listed weight. Once Jordan can work out normally he should have no issues adding weight to his frame. In the NFL, Jordan could easily play in the 250s, if not the 260s.



  • Auburn defensive end/outside linebacker Corey Lemonier helped himself at the weigh-in. He was listed at 6-foot-4, 246 pounds and weighed in at better numbers (6-3, 255). Lemonier needed more weight to hold up in run defense. It still looks like his best fit would come as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

  • The 6-foot-3, 294-pound Sheldon Richardson was one pound lighter and one inch shorter than his listed weight by Missouri. It was good for Richardson to hit his numbers and not fall short.

  • LSU defensive tackle Bennie Logan (6-2, 309) helped himself at the weigh-in. He was significantly heavier than his listed weight of 287 pounds. That is a big difference and takes away a size concern that was there. It wouldn't be surprising if Logan runs well in the 40 and does well in the field work. He could give his stock a nice boost at the Combine.



  • Ohio State defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins (6-3, 320) came in close to his listed numbers (6-4, 325). Hankins needs a good Combine to stand out in a loaded class of defensive tackles. He is a powerful defender and has short arms (33.08), so he should produce a good total in the bench press.

  • Michigan State defensive end William Gholston (6-6, 281) is a huge defender. The Spartans had Gholston three pounds lighter and an inch taller. Gholston didn't have much production in 2012 so he needs a good Combine to help his draft stock.

    1) Freestyle, no shot stick!!!2) All-Star Weekend3) Michael Jordan (among other player enndesrmeots)4) My Player type of game mode (Legendary)5) Accessories (Shoes, tatts, headbands, etc )6) Extremely Better Player & Coach Models (more realistic)7) Highlights (from the current game & other games at halftime/end of game) After game interviews9 &10) Easy on the steals!!! Don't make gameplay default all 50 s across the board i.e., close shots, midrange shots, 3pt shots, steals, blocks, etc. The gameplay should embodie the REALISM of the NBA.

    Well, I hope to cut only the fat away, not the muscle and bone. I cut about 8 to 10% from the rough drtafs of SOUL OF SORCERY and SOUL OF TYRANTs, and I don't think they suffered for it.

    Thought Richardson was more of a 4-3 DT. Eagles dumped Patterson because he didn't fit so now we're going to pick up a 6-3, 294 lb end with 4 sacks. Eagles took Cox last year who Richardson is like. Richardson isn't big enough to be the NT we're looking for either.

    We need a big NT, cbs, dbs, sam, rush LB and that 3-4 DE is not hard to fill and shouldn't be a priority at all. We can get someone like Richardson elsewhere.

    I had to stop looking at the mock after seeing Richardson at 4.

    Stop reacting like a fan walter to every transaction. Eagles are undergoing a ton of changes.

    Fisher, Jordan, Ansah, Milliner, Star are the guys for the Eagles. Not Richardson, not Floyd either with his trex arms.

    They picked a couple of examples. I watched every game this year, mostly watching him play as there wasn't a lot to be excited about with Mizzou. He holds his own against the run and has a nasty streak. I also might add that there is not a single player in this draft that has a motor like he does.

    Well considering that everyone was salivating over Keke Mingo yet you have his stock dropping. Are you on drugs? The kid was a freak at the combine, with natural fluid hip movement in coverage.

    Did you not watch the clips Mayock and Sapp were going over of Richardson getting washed away in run support? Not exactly someone you want draft in a 3-4 defense.

    I disagree. He would be better as a NT and the Chiefs used a first rounder on one of those last year. There are better 5-tech DE's in this draft and there certainly are guys as good later on in the draft. Besides, if KC takes another D-lineman in the first, there will be riots. Glenn Dorsey, Tyson Jackson, Poe all in the last few drafts.

    They said it could have been from dehydration. Supposedly he lost 10 lbs in 3 days because of a busy schedule. If he checks out OK in the coming weeks he is still who I would take if I was Reid. Can't be blocked by one guy.

    Should go first overall. Has the numbers, has the highest motor of anyone in the draft this year. He's going to be an All-Pro and the Chiefs need a proper 5-Tech DE.

    Walt, no mention of Star's heart condition hear. I definitely think the top 5 just took a big hit. Moore with 12 reps, Star with the heart condition, the KC Cheifs apparently trading for Alex Smith. Add in Jones' medical red flags, and this draft just went all to hell.

    Margus Hunt with 38 reps at 6'8, 277 lbs is straight beast.
