Florida State is sending an incredible 12 players to the NFL combine. With the help of our SB Nation co-workers on the ground in Indianapolis, we're updating the news on all of FSU's stars.
On Wednesday, offensive linemen and tight ends arrived to be interviewed, weighed and measured.
Tight end Nick O'Leary came in at 6'3, 252 pounds, and with 29 3/4" arms and 9 3/8" hands. The size is solid for an H-Back type tight end, which is what O'Leary projects as, but the arm length is extremely short, which should lead to questions about O'Leary's catch radius. In fact, O'Leary had the shortest arms of the 20 tight ends in attendance.
Guard Tre' Jackson came in at 6'4, 330 pounds, with 32 5/8" arms and 10 7/8" hands. Guard Josue Matias measured 6'5, 309, with 33 1/8" arms and 10" hands. Cameron Erving, who is being looked at at both center and tackle, was 6'5, 313 with 34 1/8" arms and 10 3/8" hands. And Bobby Hart, who was a tackle in college but projects as a guard in the league was 6'5, 329, with 33" arms and 10 1/8" hands.
Tre' Jackson said that he has spoken with Tampa Bay and New England multiple times already. Nick O'Leary was his usual blunt, short self with the media, I'm told.
Tomorrow, Jameis Winston, Karlos Williams and Rashad Greene will arrive.
No workouts are taking place until Friday and they extend through the weekend.
These numbers are pretty consistent with what Florida State listed. While the weights fluctuate due to training, the heights have been pretty much spot-on during the Jimbo Fisher era, which is something that gets fudged heavily by some schools.
In some recruiting news, Florida State is making sure to highlight its 12 invitees to the combine, the most at the event.
