Measurements at the combine can be interesting when comparing the results to what was previously thought to be the player’s height and weight. In just the couple months between the end of the college season and the combine, players can add or take off weight, depending on advice they receive.

For Roquan Smith — widely considered the top pure middle linebacker in this draft — it was adding some bulk. He was listed at 6-1, 225 coming out of Georgia. At his weigh-in this week at the combine, he came in at 236 pounds; 11 pounds heavier.

For perspective, NaVorro Bowman weighs in at 6-0, 242 pounds. All Pro MLB Luke Kuechly is 6-3, 242.

Rounding out the top off-the-ball linebackers, Tremaine Edmunds came in at 6-4, 253, Rashaan Evans at 6-2, 232, and Leighton Vander Esch at 6-4, 256. So, while Smith is certainly the shortest of the bunch, the amount of weight he is carrying now is pretty standard. He could fly around at 225. Sunday we’ll see if he can still do it at 236.
