Offensive Linemen at the Combines

       A surprising number of big "OL/DL Guys" came to the combines this year. Juniors some  who have offers and some are working to get the first one. Sunday's combine had the most "Bigs," but there were some at the first two also. Heights/weights based on no shoes.

Bryce Gibbs (2015) - Wellington. Constantly improved since I first saw him last summer. 6'4- 300.  Ran    a solid 5.4/40. Verticaled 24.0. Changes direction well. Cannot carry anymore weight.  
DaVon Hamilton (2015) - Pickerington Central. Gone from just a big guy to a slimmed down 6'4-282. Powerballed 37'3. Still a work in progress. Ohio University offer.
Bryce Harris (2015) - Akron Firestone. Runs straight ahead well. Needs to work on lateral movement. Good explosion. 6'2-265. Broad jumped almost 8'0. PB-33'8. Athletic.
Jacob Zinni (2015) - West Branch. 6'4-312. Almost too heavy. Ran 4.9/pro shuttle. Ran well in the L-cone test. Powerful upper body. 35' PB. Tough-guy attitude.
Alec Curts (2015) - Mount Vernon. Measured 6'3-257. Ran 5.0/40. Pro shuttle - 4.8. L-cone 7.7. Runs really well. Athletic. Needs to keep adding weight/strength. A camp guy. One of the most impressive OL guys in the combine.

Daylen Neese (2015) - Meigs Local. First saw him at OHSAA State Wrestling Tournament. Athletic. Good balance. Ran 5.1/40. Measured 6'2-234. May be a "DL Guy." Needs to change direction.
