    @Kevin_Weidl Melvin Ingram checks in with an arm length under 30" (29 7/8). 4 year avg DEs (33 5/8) + OLBs (32 1/2)

    Ouch. That really might be a fatal flaw. I've loved him through this whole process but that is just ridiculous.

    Can you play ball. Mike Singletary was called to short and too slow. Emmitt was not big enough. All these mesurement are good to take but bottom line are you a ball player can you bring it every weekend. Ingram has showed very good play and done so consistently. I'm not worried about his ability to play at this level.

    I met singletary not too long ago. He's a small guy. It's amazing that he was able to be such a great player out in the middle of those monsters.

    Maybe he was just cold because he just got out of the pool.

    True. I think one mistake is using workout and combine numbers and tossing out what these player did over the course of their career. You don't play vs 3 cones in football, 40 yard means little or how much you bench. Every year is it the same thing the accomplishments on the field gets tossed out by some and the focus ends up being drills.

    I can't find any of the top passrushers with an arm length below 32". Most are 33"+.

    Aldon Smith - 35.375
    Jason Pierre Paul - 34.75"
    Demarcus Ware - 34"
    Mario Williams - 33.875"
    Von Miller - 33.4"
    Justin Tuck - 33"
    Lamar Woodley - 32.875"
    Jarod Allen - 32"
    Elvis Dumerville - I can't find an official measurement. His teammates have been quoted as saying his arms are the longest they've ever seen.
