2016 NFL Scouting combine measurements: Linebackers

New, comments
Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Moving through the defense, the linebackers hit the scales and measuring tapes next. There are a lot of qualities that make for a great linebacker. Most of them have nothing to do with measurements. Though, if they can't crack 6-0, that's not a good thing. Having a bit of mass usually helps as well.

Just two linebackers fell below 6-0, 240 pounds: Utah's Gioni Paul (5-10, 231) and Oklahoma's Eric Striker (5-11, 227). With the exception of Georgia's Leonard Floyd (6-5.5) and Utah State's Kyler Fackrell (6-5), all of the others were between 6-0 and 6-4.

Here are all the linebacker measurements at the combine:
