Villanova offensive tackle Brad Seaton is 6-foot-7, 310 pounds. The Titans took him at 236 in the seventh round. He'll have to learn to get low to maximize his chance to stick in the NFL.

Villanova defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon turned in an unofficial 4.83 40 at the NFL combine. That's at 6 foot 7 and 280 pounds! He also turned in a 30-inch vertical and 128 inches on the broad jump, tied for fourth-best among defensive linemen since 2006. I'm told he did meet with the Bucs at the Senior Bowl and met with them informally in Indianapolis.
