The players who had 28.5" or higher verticals are as follows:
Terron Armstead (OT) - 34.5"
Nick Becton (OT) - 29.5"
Emmett Cleary (OT) - 28.5"
Eric Fisher (OT)- 28.5"
Reid Fragel (OT) - 30"
Travis Frederick (OC/OG) - 28.5"
Garrett Gilkey (OG) - 30"
Tanner Hawkinson (OT) - 28.5"
Eric Herman (OG/OC)- 28.5"
Luke Joekel (OT) - 28.5"
Lane Johnson (OT) - 34"
Stephane Milhim (OG/OT) - 28.5"
Jordan Mills (OT) - 28.5"
Vinson Painter (OT) - 30.5"
Justin Pugh (OT/OG) - 28.5"
Dan Quessenbury (OG/OT) - 30.5"
JC Tretter (OL) - 29.5"
Ricky Wagner (OT) - 31.5"
Earl Watford (OG) - 30"
Some guys didn't jump. Chance Womack being one of them. Fluker being another one. But a couple of big names missing from that list are Jon Cooper (27"), Menelik Watson (24.5"), Kyle Long (28") and Oboushi (23.5")
I know that the Vertical isn't the be all, end all for O-line, but it sure is telling..
I want to thank Manxman for posting BOR's info on O-linemen in the other thread:
30" vertical, 4.5 short shuttle, 7.5 3-cone, and 1.85 10 split (or better in each area).
As Manx pointed out to me in the other thread, there were only 2 guys who fell into this:
David Quessenbury and Tanner Hawkinson
So, it will be interesting to see what the Pats do.
NOTE: Since 2003, the Pats have only drafted 1 player (Ryan Callaghan) who didn't meet the 28.5" vertical jump. That's why I used it.
Did anyone get a look at Vinston Painter at the combine? He has good measurables but seems like a real unknown commodity. According to his bio, he played several positions on the offensive line.
