Steelers NFL Combine watch: First day weigh-in winners and losers
TE Harrison Bryant
According to some draft experts, Harrison Byrant is the number one tight end in this year’s class. While he might have the best combination of catching and blocking in the class, his weigh-in numbers didn’t help him on Monday. Bryant has enough height and bulk, but his 30 5/8” arms and 74” wingspan may limit his catch radius in the NFL.
TE Thaddius Moss
I think the general media maybe a little too high on Thadiuss Moss because of his family bloodlines (Randy Moss’s son), but he didn’t really help himself in weigh-ins. Moss’s numbers aren’t overly concerning (6’1 7/8”, 9 7/8” hands, 31 7/8” arms) but several of his numbers are below average.
QB Jake Fromm
Jake Fromm is a player who could slide into the Steelers range in the second round. While we knew he wasn’t the biggest quarterback (6’1 7/8” and 219 pounds) those numbers don’t matter much in today’s NFL. What is a bit concerning are his 8 7/8” hands, and they don’t meet the threshold many NFL teams look for in a quarterback.
WR K.J. Hamler Height
We knew this was coming with K.J. Hamler, but it’s still a little disappointing to see his NFL Combine weigh-in numbers on paper. Hamler is a player who is probably going to test excellent in drills this week, but coming in at 5’8 5/8” and 178 pounds potentially limit his upside in the NFL.
Overall, there weren’t a lot of testing numbers to be disappointed with. There are a lot of good-sized receivers and tight ends entering the 2020 NFL Draft, and you better believe the Steelers are taking notes.
