2018 NFL combine: What we learned from RB and OL weigh-ins and measurements

Saquon Barkley, Derrius Guice, and other members of oustanding running back class weighed-in at the 2018 NFL combine at Wednesday. Offensive linemen were also measured too.

Let’s examine the winners and losers from the running back and offensive linemen measurements. 

Notable running back measurements

RB winners

Derrius Guice, LSU. The LSU star was dinged during the 2017 season. He’s healthy now. In fact, he was healthy when he erupted for 276 yards in mid-October against Ole Miss and 127 yards against Texas AM in November. At 224 pounds, the violent, power back weighed in nearly 10 pounds lighter than Saquon Barkley, which should help him in the 40-yard dash. 

Sony Michel, Georgia. Despite his reputation as a change-of-pace speed back, Michel is impressive at 214 pounds. As he showed often at Georgia, he’s more than capable of carrying the load between the tackles, and teams will like that weight for him. 

Nyheim Hines, NC State. I’m very interested in Hines’s 40-yard dash time. Billed as a burner with track speed, nearing 200 pounds at slightly under 5-foot-9 will be a challenge for him to reach his max potential in that drill. If he does, say hello to Day 2. 

Ronald Jones II, USC. Headed into the combine,
