The final group of prospects took the scales and measuring sticks in Indianapolis today. It was the defensive backs. The ranges are all over the map with DB's. From the short, speedy slot corners to the lengthy safeties.

On each end of that spectrum you will find a few 5-9 corners and Jayron Kearse. A strong safety prospect our of Clemson, Kearse is the size of a tall receiver with the reach to go with it. He's 6-4, 216 pounds with 34 1/4 arms. He is the tallest DB in the draft and has the second longest arms. That puts him physically with any receiver. We'll see Monday if he has the leaping ability to go with it.

Here are all the defensive back measurements in the 2016 combine:
