Friday, the defenders began stepping on the scales. Beginning with the big fellas in the trenches. This is where you see the largest and most athletic players at the combine. And you won't find another player who is more of a freak of nature than Oregon's Deforest Buckner.

Buckner came in at 6-7, which is the second tallest among defensive linemen. And dude has enormous mits. His hands were a ridiculous 11 3/4 inches. No other defensive lineman's hands even broke 11 inches. Buckner was also in the top ten with 34 3/8 arms.

Here are all the defensive line measurements at the combine:
