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


2013 NFL Combine: Weigh-In Recap - Offensive Linemen

  • The consensus top-rated offensive linemen, Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel, checked in at 6-foot-6, 306-pounds with 34 1/4-inch arms. Those are all good numbers and Joeckel should have the ability to gain 10-15 pounds once he enters an NFL strength and conditioning program. It was good for Joeckel that he didn't measure significantly smaller than his listed measurements by Texas A&M (6-6, 310).

  • There are some who believe that Alabama guard Chance Warmack is the best player in the entire 2013 NFL Draft. He did his cause no harm by measuring in at the weigh-in at 6-foot-2, 317-pounds with 34 3/4-inch arms. Warmack has the strength and athleticism to be a star in the weight room and field work. The combine will probably just reinforce his high draft grade.



  • North Carolina guard Jonathan Cooper (6-2, 311) was an inch shorter and 16 pounds heavier than his listed statistics. That height doesn't matter very much, but showing more bulk should really help him. Cooper illustrated superb speed and athleticism in college, but weighing below 300 is very light for an NFL offensive linemen. Cooper's weight at 311 is enough for a guard or center. The weigh-in definitely helped his draft stock.

  • Wisconsin center Travis Frederick (6-4, 312) had one of the most shocking weigh-ins. The Badgers had listed him at 338 pounds. That is too heavy to play center in the NFL, but 312 pounds is practically ideal. Frederick was a big masher at Wisconsin who beat defenders with power at the point of attack.

    Centers in the NFL need to have flexibility and athleticism. If Frederick struggles in the field drills, it could cause teams to project as a guard - the position he played in 2011. Frederick's draft stock would be hurt by him being viewed as only a guard. As a center, he is in the running to be the first selected. The weigh-in was a good first step.



  • One of the players who impressed at the weigh-in was Arkansas guard Alvin Bailey. He has good size at 6-foot-3, 312-pounds while also having nice a nice arm length of 34 3/4 inches. Bailey entered the draft early in a good guard class and would have been better off returning for his senior season. However, a strong showing at the combine could help him to rise higher on the second day of the 2013 NFL Draft.

  • Alabama center Barrett Jones is the most versatile lineman in the 2013 NFL Draft given his ability to possibly play all five positions on the offensive line. Jones (6-4, 306) was an inch shorter than expected, but his arm length of 34 1/8 inches allows teams to consider him for tackle in the NFL. He was an All-American at left tackle, center and guard for the Crimson Tide. The intelligent and experienced Jones could end up being a second-day pick who causes a lot of people to wonder why he wasn't selected early in his draft class.

  • Alabama right tackle D.J. Fluker (6-5, 339) helped himself with his weigh-in. He dropped 16 pounds since the Senior Bowl. The decreased weight should help his speed and mobility. Fluker had some struggles in pass protection in 2012, so slimming down should help his ability to block on the edge. Teams also will like to see that he has worked hard to slim down. Fluker had the longest arms of any offensive linemen at 36 3/4. Those long arms will surely get offensive line coaches excited.



  • Syracuse's Justin Pugh (6-4, 307) played tackle in college, but he has to move inside to guard in the NFL. Not only is Pugh short and light for tackle, but his arms are extremely short at 32 inches. He was tied for the second shortest arms of any offensive lineman. Considering Pugh's performance at the Senior Bowl, playing him at tackle would be dangerous.

  • Florida State offensive tackle Melenik Waston was shorter and lighter than the Seminoles billed him to be. He was listed at 6-foot-6, 320-pounds but checked in at 6-foot-5, 310 pounds. He had a solid arm length of 34 inches and should be able remain at tackle, but part of the appeal of Watson was that he was said to be extremely athletic for a big tackle. The former basketball player could make up for it by excelling in the field work.

  • Kent State guard Brian Winters (6-4, 320) grew from the Senior Bowl when he was (6034, 310). The height was rounded up slightly, but it was impressive to see him pack on 10 pounds of bulk. Winters is in the running to be a second-day pick and that added strength he showed off at the weigh-in should help his cause.



  • There was an important medical exam for North Carolina tackle Brennan Williams. His senior season ended early with a torn labrum. The results of his rehab and current condition of his shoulder haven't released. Williams was an impressive 6-foot-6, 318-pounds with 34 inch arms at the weigh-in. He has excellent size to be a starting right tackle in the NFL.

  • San Jose State guard/center David Quessenberry is extremely versatile and has the ability to play four positions on the offensive line. To go along with a 6-foot-5, 302-pound frame, he has 34 3/8 inch arms. That will allow some teams to consider Quessenberry for right tackle. He also hides his weight well and could gain another 10-20 pounds in the NFL.

    Just trying to connect some dots here, I believe the Packers may be the team interested in David Bakhtiari as a C. I'm a Packers fan, but here is why I think what I do:
    1) The Packers run a ZBS.
    2) The Packers love versatile OL's.
    3) The Packers have a history of drafting OT's and converting them to C.
    4) The Packers have a big enough need to warrant taking Bakhtiari in the 1st or 2nd round (my guess is he'd be a 2nd round target for the Packers.

    Fluker's long arms are good to have as a tackle, but you can't ignore he struggled in on the field drills. Heck you even mentioned that in your on field drills analysis, yet ignore it here? Fluker isn't a LT and the Bears aren't going to draft him as a tackle. They need a LT.

    Definitely shouldn't worry about Fluker's bench reps, the guy had freakishly long arms for a guy 6-5 and typically as long as the offensive lineman get 20 reps, they will be fine.

    Just because you can do 500 once doesn't automatically mean you can do 225 more than 21 times.

    Surprising that Frederick didn't do more reps. He broke the school record for squats with 770lb max and can supposedly bench press over 500lbs.
