Roster Superlatives at the 2019 Senior Bowl


MOBILE, Ala. — Scouts filed into the Mobile Convention Center bright and early Tuesday morning for the National Scouting Weigh-in.

A total of 114 draft-eligible prospects have been split among the North and South rosters.

Prospects strode across a stage so that detailed heights could be recorded, and then they stepped on a scale to measure their weights.

Here are the roster superlatives:

Tall Trees

North: Stetson tight end Donald Parham was measured at taller than 6-foot-8 (6083). He also had an 84-inch wingspan. The next-tallest were Iowa defensive end Anthony Nelson, who was more than 6-and-a-half-feet tall (6067) and Wisconsin guard Beau Benzschawel, who was a little taller than 6-6 (6062)

South: Buffalo QB Tyree Jackson was 6-7 even, as he's listed on the roster. Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat 6-6 even and Elon tackle Oli Udoh (6056) were the next tallest.

Shorter Stature

North: Georgia State receiver Penny Hart was the shortest at 5-8 even. UMass receiver Andy Isabella was next, checking in under 5-9 (5087). Michigan running back Karan Higdon was 5-9.

South: Clemson cornerback Mark Fields checked in at 5101, just under LSU kicker Cole Tracy (5102). Clemson receiver Hunter Renfrow and Miami safety Jaquan Johnson were both measured at 5103.

Heavy Duty

North: Washington tackle Kaleb McGary tipped the scales at 321, a pound heavier than Northern Illinois tackle Max Scharping and Western Illinois defensive tackle Khalen Saunders, who is capable of executing backflips.

South: Jacksonville State guard B.J. Autry checked in at 351, which was 11 pounds heavier than his initial roster listing. Udoh and Texas A&M defensive tackle Daylon Mack were both 327 pounds.

Lighter Side:

North: Hart and Utah safety Marquise Blair each weighed 180 pounds. Isabella weighed 186.

South: Renfrow weighed 175 pounds, and Tracy was 183. Fields and Johnson were 186. Note: Jimmy Moreland, a cornerback at James Madison who was a late addition to the game, is initially listed at 175 but will undergo the weigh-in once he arrives in Mobile.
