    Jon Halapio - 6'3" 1/2 320 (looked like he's lost some bad weight and added a lot of muscle)
    Solomon Patton - 5'8" 1/2 (shortest player at the Senior Bowl)
    Jaylen Watkins - 5'11" 194

    Met with Watkins after the weigh in. He said the experience of walking in front of more than 200 people in basically underwear to get weighed and measured was "crazy." He thought that the person measuring him went off the side of his head and believes that he's 6' tall. He was happy to weigh in at 194, saying he expected to be around 190.

    I know Patton's pretty small and plays well in space, but he's not weightless is he? :D

    He's been told 3-4th rounds, could sneak into the 2nd.

    He's having an incredible week this week and can continue to rise after the combine and pro day.

    Thank you, NDT. That's good news.

    I agree with Jwat. I am 5' 10" and he was definitely more than an inch taller than me standing next to me Tuesday night.

    Jon is probably being helped this week by his interviews in addition to his play. He is very well-spoken and personable and likable.
