The NFL Combine has officially begun as offensive linemen and tight ends have been measured and weighed in. It may seem trivial and look like players are paraded around like prize bulls at an auction, but the fact is that the next few days is one giant job interview and the most important job interview these athletes will every have.
Four former Georgia Bulldogs, three offensive linemen and one tight end, were measured and weighed in today. They were guard/tackle Cordy Glenn, tackle Justin Anderson, center Ben Jones and tight end Orson Charles, and thanks toWalterFootball.com, we have the results.
Glenn, who is projected to be selected in the first round in many mock drafts, stood at 6-foot-5 and weighed 345 pounds with an arm length of 35 and 3/4 inches. Anderson stood at 6-foot-4 and weighed 335 pounds with an arm length of 34 and 5/8 inches. Jones stood at 6-foot-2 and weighed 303 pounds with an arm length of 32 and 1/2 inches. Charles stood at 6-foot-2 and weighed 251 pounds and his arm length was 32 and 1/2 inches with a hand measurement of 9 and 1/4 inches.
The offensive linemen still need to run their 40-yard dashes and do the bench press while the tight ends need to run the 40-yard dashes, bench press, 10-yard split, and measure their vertical leap. Those will begin to be measured tomorrow.
