Indianapolis— News and notes from the offensive line group…
• Stanford OG David DeCastro didn’t lace the fastest of 40 times, running in the 5.3 range. However, he looked very coordinated during positional drills. He was able to keep his base down, maintain balance laterally and showcased “plus” change of direction skills. Honestly, if I had a need at guard, I wouldn’t have any qualms using a top ten pick on this him.
ICONGlenn worked out better than most thought.
• Another guy on the rise was Georgia OL Cordy Glenn. It’s rare of see a guy at his dimensions (6-5, 345) run in the sub 5.0 range. Glenn possesses “plus” length (35 ¾) as well and despite not being the most fleet of feet laterally, you can still see the initial quickness/burst needed to get off the ball and into contact quickly. Looks like a lock for the top 20.
• It was a strong performance from Illinois OL Jeff Allen as well today. Allen ran in the mid 5.1 range and also showcased good athleticism when asked to pull and get out on the move. And at 6-4, 307-pounds he exhibited good length for the guard position (33.5) and showcased natural strength on the bench (26 reps).
