Monday marks the first day of official Senior Bowl events at Mobile, Alabama as 2014 NFL Draft prospects look to improve their draft stock at the Senior Bowl. Although big names often opt to not attend, even ones that should (Looking at you AJ McCarron), the Senior Bowl offers a good chance to look at a wide variety of prospects before the NFL Combine.

The Senior Bowl’s first big event is the weigh ins of the prospects, and while it may or may not be a tad creepy obsessing over the weights and heights of prospects it is something that can make or break a prospects draft value. Not enough height at certain positions can be a killer, as can not enough weight at others. Like it or not, it is apart of the draft process and is something that NFL scouts and front offices value.

For defensive linemen the taller, and stronger the player the more intriguing the talent. Trent Murphy from Stanford might not be the fastest linebacker, but his height of 6’5″ will do him some major favors. As will 6’6″, 318 pound Ra’Shede Hageman out of Minnesota, whose size has him as a first round talent.
