Senior Bowl week got off to a good start for Ohio State defensive ends Jalyn Holmes and Tyquan Lewis on Tuesday, as both Buckeyes posted measurables that should impress NFL scouts in their Tuesday morning weigh-ins.
Holmes measured in at 6'4 3/4" and 279 pounds, with 10" hands, 34 3/4" arms and an 82 7/8" wingspan, while Lewis measured in at 6'2 3/4" and 276 pounds with 10 3/8" hands, 33 5/8" arms and a 79 3/4" wingspan.

As Pro Football Weekly's Eric Edholm pointed out, Holmes and Lewis can thank Ohio State director of football sports performance Mickey Marotti – at least in part – for helping them develop NFL-ready bodies.
