Former Tennessee Volunteers defensive lineman Daniel McCullers had the distinction on Monday as being the heaviest player at the 2014 Senior Bowl in Mobile, AL.

In addition to being the heaviest, McCullers also displayed the largest wingspan on Monday.

Just being big wasn’t enough to impress some draft scouts.

McCullers, despite his size, didn’t have the most impressive two seasons in Knoxville. The massive defensive tackle was a JuCo transfer from Raleigh, NC. In two seasons at UT, McCullers accounted for 72 tackles and 1.5 sacks. He was what some folks call a “space eater”.

The former Vol needs an impressive week in Mobile to raise his draft stock. His size alone is enough to get him into a camp somewhere, but that won’t be enough to keep him on an active roster.

The most logical situation for McCullers would be as a nose tackle in a 3-4 defense.

We’ll keep you updated on McCullers’ progress this week and leading up to the NFL draft.
