Maryland OT creates buzz at weigh-in
By Tim MacMahon
INDIANAPOLIS -- There are no workouts on the first day of the combine, but Maryland LT Bruce Campbell still generated a buzz.
Campbell was the clear winner of the offensive line's weigh-ins. He was measured at 6-6 3/8 and a chiseled 314 pounds with an enormous arm length of 36 1/4 inches.
One veteran personnel man called Campbell's body the most impressive he's ever seen on an offensive lineman.
That doesn't necessarily mean Campbell will be off the board by the time the Cowboys' pick comes up 27th overall. There are still questions about his football IQ and durability after an injury-plagued junior season.
Every NFL scout knew Campbell was an impressive physical specimen. They just got an up-close view of how impressive his physique is this morning.
