Combine Coverage: Hogmollies

Hawks in the Draft. Offensive Lineman (Bruggeman, Olsen) worked out today, Running Backs on Sunday (Green), Defensive Lineman on Monday (King), Defensive Backs on Tuesday (Fletcher).

Rob Bruggeman: Bruggs measured in at 6'4" and 293 pounds. He put up 30 reps on the bench press, tied for 10th best among offensive lineman. I think he'll get drafted somewhere in the 6th or 7th round and make a very nice addition to some teams offensive line.

Seth Olsen: Big Seth measured in at 6'5" and 306 pounds. He was top performer in the 3-cone drill, finishing 7.59 seconds, 9th best among offensive lineman. I'm not sure how they scouts use that measurement for offensive lineman, but if I had to guess, it would be to measure foot speed for pass coverage. He also put up 23 reps in the bench press and ran a 5.24 in the 40 (even though the 40 yard dash for offensive linemen is completely pointless). I think Olsen will be drafted a little higher than Bruggeman, but feel that Bruggeman has more of a mean streak and will be a better pro player.

Stayed tuned for continuing coverage.
