While the thought of grown men watching less clothed men walk across a stage and be measured may seem odd to some, it signifies the beginning of Senior Bowl week down in Mobile, AL. Every prospect on The Senior Bowl roster is has their height, weight, arm length, wingspan, and hand size measured. This gives scouts and media personnel a more realistic idea of a player’s measurables, as many players are listed taller or heavier than they actually are.
With all that being said, we will give you some quick notes on how today’s weigh ins went for our small school prospects that are in Mobile right now.
Julien Davenport (OT, Bucknell)
Hand: 10 1/2
Wingspan: 87 1/2
Davenport validated some buzz early, with his astounding numbers. His height/weight combination were consistent with typical left tackle numbers. His arm length and wingspan however were exceptional.
Connor Harris (ILB, Lindenwood)
Hand: 9 1/4
Arm: 28 3/4″
Wingspan: 71 1/4″
Harris came in as expected with his height and weight. He has a compact muscular frame and shorter arms. He didn’t win anything in weigh ins, but expect to hear more positives from him as the week progresses.
Jordan Herdman (ILB, Simon Fraser)
Hand: 8 1/8
Arm: 29 7/8″
Wingspan: 74 1/2″
Jordan came in shorter than his listed 6’2 height. He also has a more compact frame with shorter arms. His hands are smaller as well. As with Connor Harris, stay tuned for positives as live action takes place.
Lorenzo Jerome (Safety, St. Francis)
Hand: 8 5/8
Arm: 30 1/2″
Jerome came in about two inches shorter than his list height, and five pounds heavier. His height and weight are acceptable for a Safety. His arms are a good length, but he has smaller hands.
Cooper Kupp (WR, Eastern Washington)
Hand: 9 1/2
Arm: 31 1/4″
Wingspan: 74 3/8″
Kupp came in slightly smaller than his listed height and weight, but nothing that stands out in a negative way. He checked in with average hand size and decent arm length.
Brendan Langley (CB, Lamar)
Hand: 9 5/8
Arm: 31 3/8″
Wingspan: 76 1/8″
Langley came in about as we expected on the measurables. He is a tall, lengthy corner with a decent wingspan.
Derek Rivers (Edge, Youngstown State)
Hand: 9 1/2
Arm: 32 3/8
Wingspan: 77 1/2
Rivers checked in with a height and weight consistent with those listed. He fits the mold for a 3-4 OLB and has a reasonable wingspan.
Tanoh Kpassagnon (DE, Villanova)
Hand: 10 7/8
Arm: 34 7/8″
Kpassagnon was as impressive as we thought he would be in the weigh in portion. He has an elite combination of height, weight and arm length. He carried the 280 well and looked very muscular.
Keionta Davis (DE, Chattanooga)
Arm: 33 1/8″
Wingspan: 80 1/2″
Davis has solid size and a great wingspan, also similar to what we expected. He has generated some buzz early down in Mobile.
Chad Williams (WR, Grambling State)
Hand: 9 3/4
Wingspan: 77 1/8″
Williams was listed two inches taller than his actual height. This isn’t troublesome, as he has good arm length and decent sized hands.
Jordan Morgan (OG, Kutztown)
Arm: 33 1/4″
Wingspan: 80 5/8″
Morgan was shorter than his listed height, and explains why scouts had him tabbed as a Guard. However, he has long arms and will do very well inside.
