NCAA Football: Fiesta Bowl-Penn State vs Washington Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

It’s hump day at the combine. The last of the offensive skill position are going through their drills before the defensive positions get their day. But before they do, they had their weigh-ins.

Defensive linemen were up first. Their heights and weights vary quite a bit considering the many positions along the defensive line. Weights can range more than a hundred pounds between a defensive end and a nose tackle.

On the large side of things is Vita Vea. The hefty nose tackle came in at 6-4, 347 pounds. The lightest player is LSU’s Arden Key at 6-5, 238 pounds and there are several others that hover around 250 pounds.

Vea’s size and power is one of the reasons why he is one of the players to watch on Sunday when they take the field for workouts. At that size, if he can run a sub 5-second 40, that would be considerably impressive.

Here are all the Defensive linemen measurements.
