Monday will be the final day of combine workouts. That’s when the defensive backs take the field for workouts. Before that we get their measurements. The top cornerbacks in particular aren’t the particularly tall. At least not compared to what the Raiders have had recently.

The consensus top five corners are Denzel Ward (5-11), Jaire Alexander (5-10), Mike Hughes (5-10), Josh Jackson (6-0), and Isaiah Oliver (6-0). None of them have a particularly long reach, with arms around 31 inches.

As you can see, just Jackson and Oliver crack the 6-0 mark. For comparison, the Raiders top three corners heading into last season were Sean Smith (6-2), David Amerson (6-1), and Gareon Conley (6-1). The shortest of them was slot corner TJ Carrie at 6-0.

Even top defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick is just 6-0, and he’s a safety.

On the other end of the spectrum is Oklahoma State’s Tre Flowers who is the tallest DB at the combine at 6-3 with the longest arms at 33 7/8.

Here are all the defensive backs measurements at the 2018 Combine.
