Pro Day Stats and Measurements


Recommended Posts

What was his arm length? 6'4" is less than ideal at LT, but those other measurables are excellent.

For the record, Jordan Gross measured in at 6'4" 305. His arms were 33" which is considerably less than ideal for a LT. Everyone would be screaming "he's a guard!" if he measured in today.

wonder about his arms (length)?  (Sorry, should read the thread first).  I think his speed is incredible.

Feels like Gross was drafted 80 years ago. The current group of DEs are LOOOOOOOOONNNNNNGGGGGGGGGG armed freaks. Only thing that beats long arms is long arms. super rare exceptions

He was actually drafted the year after Peppers, one of the freakiest DEs ever.

Gross overcame that by being tough and harding work. According to players Peppers rag dolled Gross daily and almost killed his confidence. Gross said himself it wasnt until week 1 halftime, that he realized "Wow they dont have a DE like Peppers, its much easier!"  Gross also said something that stuck with me too- "OL is about losing slowly". 

I got to dig more on Slater, one thing that I remember about Rhule with Derrick Brown. He talked about his personality and his focus, Reports have Slater being similar in that vein. Plus if hes the 8th, its a near must hes a LT....unless he can be a nasty Nelson clone. I respect DJs opinion and hes been bragging hardcore for Slater months ago.

Oh for sure, being able to go up against Peppers everyday definitely helps.

And yeah, any OL we would even consider has to play LT. No team sorry enough to land a top 10 pick can afford to spend it on an OG.
