The Pittsburgh Steelers are scouting out talent at the NFL Combine this week. Here are the weigh-in winners and losers for tight ends, wide receivers, and quarterbacks.
The Steelers no doubt have much of their front office on hand for the NFL Combine workouts this week. While players are set to take the field for drills until Thursday, you better believe that all 32 NFL teams are taking notes after the first day of weigh-ins.
Typically, how a player measures in at the Combine isn’t going to make or break their draft status, but great measurements could shift some players up on draft boards, and poor numbers could potentially hurt a player’s stock.
The draft-eligible tight ends, wide receivers, and quarterbacks weighed in on Monday. I tried to keep my list fixated towards players who the Steelers may look to target in the NFL Draft. Here are my winners and losers from day one at the NFL Combine:
TE Hunter Bryant
Hunter Byrant put up some pleasantly surprising numbers at the Combine weigh-ins. Many thought he might come in under 6’2” but he measured at 6’2 1/4”. His bulk (248 pounds) was even more impressive. Combine that with over 10” hands, and you’ve got a legitimate tight end prospect on day two of the draft.
TE Cole Kmet
So far, Cole Kmet looks like the Rob Gronkowski of Combine measurables. At 6’5 3/4”, 262 pounds, with 10 1/2” hands, and 33” arms, he has a prototype body for a number one tight end at the next level.
