Saturday was the first day of drills for the offensive linemen and for tight ends. As you will see, Taylor Lewan and Greg Robinson were both very, very impressive physically. This bodes well for both of them combined with their game tape.
There was one player expected to be drafted fairly high that saw his stock likely plummet. Alabama tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, per Ian Rapoport, failed his physical for a few teams because of a bad knee, which was messed up from surgery. The Cardinals have been projected to select him with their first round pick.
Bad news for #Bama OT Cyrus Kouandjio. I’m told several teams have failed him on his physical. Arthritic knee from failed surgery. "Ugly."— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 22, 2014
Nevada's Joel Bitonio also shows up as a very athletic prospect.
