I pointed this out a few weeks ago when Walter had Steelers drafting ILB in the first. DL or TE would be in play as well. They could do with a really dominant NT, and depending on how they view Jesse James long term then they could be looking for Heath Millers successor.
Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston College
Anthony Castonzo eclipsed the 300-pound barrier, weighing in at 6-7, 305 pounds at the Senior Bowl. His arms measured in at 35 1/4 inches.
Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami
Leonard Hankerson measured in an inch shorter than he was listed at Maimi, but his 10 5/8-inch hands are unbelievable. Outside of Vincent Brown, no one else had larger than 10-inch hands at the Senior Bowl.
Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State
Derek Sherrod had the longest arms at the Senior Bowl, as they measured in at 35 1/2 inches. His size (6-6, 312 pounds) was also impressive.
Nate Solder, OT, Colorado
Nate Solder weighed in at 6-8, 314 pounds with long 35-inch arms. He has room for growth as well.
Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor
Phil Taylor showed up to the Senior Bowl at 6-4, 337 pounds. However, he wasn't out of shape at all; conversely, he carried the weight well. He could be the No. 1 nose tackle in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Noel Devine, RB, West Virginia
When they show those Christian Children's Fund commercials with the weird old creeper, is Noel Devine one of the kids? Why is he only 160 pounds? Can someone please drive him to a McDonald's? His 8-and-a-half inch hands aren't helping him either.
Rodney Hudson, G, Florida State
Rodney Hudson measured in at 6-2, 291 pounds with short 32 1/2-inch arms. He looked out of shape.
Colin McCarthy, LB, Miami
Colin McCarthy's arms were the shortest of all the linebackers at the Senior Bowl (30 inches). He reportedly did not look like he was in very good shape either.
Niles Paul, WR, Nebraska
Niles Paul's hands measured in at 8 5/8 inches. As a reference, no receiver at the Senior Bowl had smaller than 9-inch hands. On the bright side, if Paul fails in the NFL, he can always get a job at the circus. Come see the man with freakishly small hands!
D.J. Williams, TE, Arkansas
D.J. Williams measured in at just under 6-2 at the Senior Bowl (6-1 7/8). Most tight ends in the NFL are 6-4 or taller, so this is a concern.
