2015 NFL Combine: Weigh-In Recap - Offensive Linemen
By Charlie Campbell - @draftcampbell

  • The consensus opinion is that Iowa's Brandon Scherff should move to guard or right tackle in the NFL. That assessment was validated at the Combine, as Scherff checked in at 6-foot-5, 319 pounds with 33 3/8-inch arms. The arm length is the key number that indicates a move away from left tackle. There are some left tackles in the NFL who have similar length, but Scherff's arms are more in line with a guard.

  • Stanford left tackle Andrus Peat (6-7, 313) was identical to his listed numbers with the exception of being one pound heavier. Those are solid numbers for Peat, and his arms (34 3/8 inches) illustrate that he has desired length to play left or right tackle.

  • Miami left tackle Ereck Flowers was 6-foot-6 and 329 pounds with longer arms (34 1/2 inches). Those are good numbers that illustrate that he has the size and length to play left tackle in the NFL. He is a big blocker and his listed numbers were accurate to reality.

  • One of the standouts of the weigh-in was Florida State's Cameron Erving. At 6-foot-5, 313 pounds with 34 1/8-inch arms, Erving's size is versatile for any position on the offensive line. Erving would probably be best as a center, guard or right tackle.



  • There has been hype for months for South Carolina guard A.J. Cann. Sources with teams told us that Cann graded out as a third-rounder and was a poor-man's Larry Warford or Gabe Jackson. The weigh-in gave more proof of that. Cann (6-3, 313), with arms at 32 5/8 inches, is smaller than either Warford or Jackson.

  • Cann's teammate Corey Robinson (6-7, 324) showed off his massive size. Robinson also had long arms (35 5/8 inches). He is a right tackle only, as he doesn't have the pass-protection skills for the left side and is too big to move inside to guard.

  • There are some teams that believe that Alabama guard Arie Kouandjio is the best guard in the draft. Kouandjio is a good athlete with some natural strength. At the weigh-in, he checked in at 6-foot-5, 310 pounds with long 34 1/8-inch arms. Kouandjio has the strength and athleticism to be a standout in the Combine field work. Don't be surprised if Kouandjio gets some momentum out of the Combine.

  • Both of the Oklahoma offensive tackles showed good size at the weigh-in. Left tackle Tyrus Thompson (6-5, 324) and right tackle Daryl Williams (6-5, 327) both have the size for tackle or guard in the NFL. Williams had 35-inch arms, the fourth-longest, and Thompson had 34 7/8-inch arms.



  • Florida left tackle D.J. Humphries had some issues adding weight during his collegiate career, but scouts say that he played around 290 last year. Humphries (6-5, 307) showed good progress at the weigh-in, although his arms were shorter than ideal (33 5/8 inches). The medical check with Humphries will be critical to his draft stock as he had a lot of injuries during his time with the Gators.

  • Not including Erving, Oregon's Hroniss Grasu is in the running to be the first true center drafted. Grasu (6-3, 297) illustrated that he could use more weight on his frame for moving NFL defensive linemen.

  • Auburn center Reese Dismukes (6-3, 296) is in the same boat. Both players would benefit by adding 10 pounds of muscle for taking on heavy nose tackles.

  • The longest arms of any player belong to Florida's Trent Brown at 36 inches. Brown (6-8, 355) is a massive blocker, but he is a developmental project. That was clearly visible during the Senior Bowl when he had some issues in pass protection.
