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


2013 NFL Combine: Weigh-In Recap - Linebackers

  • There were two linebackers considered to be undersized who had shocking weight gains. The higher-rated of the two is Kansas State's Arthur Brown. He checked in at 6-foot, 240-pounds. That was 10-15 pounds heavier than expected. Brown could now be an option for inside linebacker for 3-4 defenses. This weight gain could really help his draft stock.

  • The other undersized linebacker who benefits from a big weight gain is Florida's Jelani Jenkins. He measured 6-foot, 243-pounds after being listed significantly lighter (6-1, 230). Jenkins' final collegiate season was beset with a number of injuries and he should've returned for his senior season. However, he is extremely fast, and if he runs well at his heavier weight, he could push teams to consider selecting him earlier.



  • Georgia outside linebacker Jarvis Jones (6-2, 245) was almost identical to his listed measurements (6-2, 242). Jones won't work out at the Combine, but it was good for him that he didn't weigh in less than those numbers. His medical exam is going to be the most important aspect of his Combine.

  • Notre Dame inside linebacker Manti Te'o (6-1, 241) was an inch shorter and four pounds lighter than his listed numbers. That doesn't really matter for Te'o. It is important for him to run well in the 40 and the shuttle drills. His speed and athleticism are bigger question marks than his size.



  • Georgia's Alec Ogletree (6-2, 242) is a little shorter and heavier than he was billed by the Bulldogs (6-3, 236). Ogletree has the weight to hold up in the middle of a 4-3 or 3-4 defense. He is a very good athlete and should test well at the Combine, but with his off-the-field problems, the team interviews will carry more weight.

  • LSU slightly inflated the size of middle linebacker Kevin Minter. At the Combine, he was 6-foot, 246-pounds after the Tigers stated he was a few inches taller. Minter is shorter than ideal height, but that shouldn't scare off teams that are interested in him.



  • Texas A&M linebacker Sean Porter (6-1, 229) was two pounds lighter than he was at the Senior Bowl. The weight loss is negligible, but Porter needs to be adding weight for the NFL. Right now, he is only a fit as a weakside linebacker in a 4-3 defense. Porter has to get stronger to hold up against the ground game. It doesn't appear that he has been working hard in the weight room.

  • Another linebacker who has packed on weight is Connecticut's Sio Moore. The 6-foot-1, 245-pounder had been listed a lot lighter (6-2, 229). The added weight should really help Moore to appeal to 3-4 defenses. He could play on the inside and could blitz the passer off the edge.

    Teo did post great times in the shuttle and 3 cone though. Don't know why people are ignoring that. His 10 yard split was pretty good too.

    After the 40 yard dash Manti Te'o reportedly told one team scout that the reason he ran so slow was quote "Wait you guys seriously didn't see my girlfriend? I was giving her a piggy back ride the whole 40! You mean you really didn't see her?!?!?!"

    40 Times:
    4.82: James Laurinaitis
    Stephen Tulloch:4.81
    Brandon Spikes: 5.0
    4.86: Rey Maualuga
    E. J. Henderson: 4.80
    Jon Beason: 4.72
    Brian Cushing: 4.74
    Curtis Lofton: 4.79
    Bowman: 4.7
    London Fletcher: 4:85
    D'Qwell Jackson:4.73

    All these guys didn't impress in the 40 times, and yet many went in the 1st/2nd round. 40 times doesn't mean as much with middle linebackers, but it always is nice to have!

    Willis: 4.51
    Urlacher: 4.57
    DeMeco Ryan: 4.65
    Lawrence Timmons: 4.62
    Karlos Dansby: 4.56
    A. J. Hawk: 4.59
    David Harris: 4.59



    Urlac: 4.57

    Teos stock dropped because of how bad he played vs Alabama. The fact that hes an idiot does not help either.

    I was going to disagree w/your analysis of Te'o but you're right. Constant media attention for anything other than his play on the field can be seen as a major distraction. On the ther hand it might be better for him to go in the 2nd or 3rd round.

    Thinking that Teo's stock decreased is retarded
