Stud: Alex Leatherwood | Offensive lineman | Alabama
The champion Alabama Crimson Tide boasted one of the best offensive lines in all of college football, winning the Joe Moore Award to prove it. An important part of that group, offensive tackle Alex Leatherwood plays with consistency and a mean streak. He locked down opposing EDGE rushers and flashed the ability to be a lockdown tackle. But while he was a dominating, there are questions by some of whether or not Leatherwood should move to guard in the pros. His weigh-in helped refute that.
Measuring in with an even larger wingspan than Brown, and with over 34 inches on his arm length, helps his case tremendously to remain an offensive tackle in the NFL. Not to mention he is a solid 6-5 and 312 pounds as well. Brown certainly has the tape to show for it, but these numbers and a great week in Mobile could certify his tackle status and a potential first-round selection.
Bonus: Deonte Brown | Offensive lineman | Alabama
It would be remiss to ignore Leatherwood’s teammate Deonte Brown. Brown measured in at 6-3 but packs a walloping 364 pounds and still had an 80 inch+ wingspan. That is absolutely astounding for an offensive guard. He already looks like a tank, so this week will be huge to prove that he can play like one, with those awesome measurables, in front of NFL coaches.
