The three Nebraska defensive linemen invited to the NFL combine weighed in for scouts on Thursday and one of them, nose tackle Darrion Daniels, shed a good chunk of weight for the event.
Daniels, who weighed 325 pounds for his senior year at NU, came to the combine at 311. His frame is just a bit taller than 6-foot-3.
Carlos Davis came in at 6-2, 313. Khalil Davis measured at 6-1, 308. Even though Carlos and Khalil are twins, Carlos was long just a bit taller than his younger-brother-by-a-few-minutes.
Daniels, though, may turn some heads at the combine. His wingspan — 81 6/8 inches — is a head-turner. That's a longer wingspan than Ohio State's Chase Young. It's not quite as long as South Carolina's Javon Kinlaw — a fast-rising prospect who could very well be a top-3 pick in the NFL draft — but it's among best for defensive linemen.
