I was watching the Sportscenter special on the draft wrap up, and I heard Herman Edwards gushing about Ingram’s long arms, so I decided to check that out on the NFL combine’s result page. Here is what I found regarding arm length:

Ingram: 31.5 inch arms
Coples: 33.25 inch arms

Again, isn’t that a larger number for Coples?

I compared their size:

Ingram: 6’1″ 264 pounds
Coples: 6’6″ 284 pounds

Again, advantage Coples.

So what is the big deal here?
