    Donald was just measured at the senior bowl.
    6'0" 7/8 just 1/8 of an inch from 6'1"
    Weight came in at 288 pounds

    Size is good and has the production. Draft this kid.

    I have no worries about this kid... He'll be just fine. Put on the darn tape, I get tired of people getting sooooo caught up in measurables and forgetting about what players actually do on the field.

    6' 7/8 288 with 31 3/4 inch arm's is hardly "good" size for an NFL DT. More than enough concern for me to not touch him in the top 20. I'd love him in the 2nd, but that's just not going to happen.

    Yeah The people they compare him to is Atkins. Atkins arms are are over an inch longer. and 15 lbs heavier. If you look at Donals frame the guy looks like its maxed in terms of thickness thigh legs arms. If he gains more weight it will surely be gut. Thats a bad thing.

    Your so wrong. Atkins was drafted at 292. 4 pounds heavier and only an inch taller. Espn has Atkins arms at 32. A whole 1/4 inch longer

    Donald can easily add 5 to 10 more pounds. It's about quickness and Donald has proven he can get by and through OLines

    It is when people were saying he will be under 6 feet and under 285 and have under 31 inch arms.

    The guy can play and has better production than any other DT in this draft. I'm not saying draft him 16th but he would be on my board.

    So now your saying he wouldn't even make it to out pick I. The 1st when you were saying you wouldn't want him in the 1st due to his size.

    This. How many times have we seen workout warriors with great size get drafted early to be a bust. Just look at the production

    you have to balance production against the quality of the opposition.

    If he can dominate the Sr bowl its only logical he would rise his stock. This is turning out to be a weak DT class. Hageman Nix tuitt are the top 3 as right now but neither of them have Donalds production. Not even close to the career he's had. But his height drops his status, if you use common sense in what NFL teams go by measurables. But if he can dominate the sr bowl as he did to everybody by Watt then naturally his stock would rise.

    Not as much as we have seen productive college players be a product of a system and do absolutely nothing in the NFL.
