Is this the best offensive line group ever?

INDIANAPOLIS — The second group of offensive linemen to work out Saturday might be the most physically impressive of all time. For the first time in memory, all 26 linemen worked out, and they were sensational.

Only one player checked in at less than 6-foot-3 or had less than 32-inch arms (N.C. State’s Ted Larsen), and not a single lineman weighed less than 300 pounds.

The group also posted some of the fastest 40-yard dash times ever and showcased exceptional strength. Colorado State’s Cole Pemberton was the only guy to put up fewer than 19 bench-press repetitions.

If you can’t find an offensive lineman in this draft, you might never do it.
