2016 NFL Combine: Day 2 Winners and Losers

New, comments

Day 2 included the weigh-ins for quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends. Which prospects impressed and disappointed with their measurements?

Winners:

- Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch is rather large at 6'7" 244 pounds and 10 1/4" hands.  He could solidify a position at the top of the class if he can show athleticism at this size.

- N.C State quarterback Jacoby Brissett measured in bigger than expected at 6'4" 231 pounds with 9 3/4" hands.  He is a sleeper prospect who could be a nice quarterback to groom.

- Ohio State wide receiver Michael Thomas fits the bill as an impressive physical specimen.  His measurements were 6'3" 212 pounds, 32 1/8" arms and 10 1/2" hands.

- Baylor wide receiver Corey Coleman was a rare prospect who measured bigger than his listed size in college.  Coleman is 5'11" 194 pounds with a 30 1/4" reach and 9" hands.

- South Carolina tight end Jerell Adams long arms measured at 34 3/8".  The 6'5" 247 pound prospect is hoping to cement a spot on Day 2 of the draft.

Losers:

- California quarterback Jared Goff build is slight for the professional level.  He weighed in at 6'4" 214 pounds with 9" hands.

- Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg is a sturdy 6'4" 223 pounds but tied Goff for second smallest hands at 9".  That raises concerns about ball security.

- TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson is 6'2" 202 pounds, much shorter than his previously listed height of 6'4".  Doctson will need to show good speed to prove he can gain separation in the NFL.

- Notre Dame wide receiver Will Fuller is undersized at 6'0" 186 pounds.  Most concerning is his small 8 1/4" hands.

- Arkansas tight end Hunter Henry is an average sized for the position at 6'5" 250.  The combine weigh in exposed his 9 1/4" hands, tied for smallest at the position.
