Ben Coblyn Article
Matty Vautour has an article about UMass OG Ben Coblyn.
The updated roster lists Coblyn as 6-8 300.
He could be a good prospect to make an NFL team if he continues to work on his strength and technique. Ben only has one year of eligibility remaining and he needs playing time at his position.
Besides his height, his published 40 time of around 5.05 should turn NFL scout's heads.
Michigan OT Jake Long was the #1 pick in this year's NFL draft. He's listed as 6-7 315. However, I read a print article (no link, sorry) that he ran a 5.12 40 in Combine workouts. Note that time was after attending one of those expensive preparatory combine training camps.
I hope Ben has a great senior season. Hopefully, he'll get more than 12 regular season games to work on his game!
