NFL combine 2020 results: K'Lavon Chaisson, Terrell Lewis stand out as linebackers weigh in

INDIANAPOLIS -- The linebacker group joined the party here Wednesday. Clemson's Isaiah Simmons was the belle of the ball but there were several other talented prospects around him, including a deep pool of modern-day talent. Simmons should test well later this week, but there were a few SEC linebackers who benefited the most from the mid-week weigh-in.

We've got you covered with the winners and losers from the day's weigh-in. Here are our takeaways from the linebackers.

LB winners

Akeem Davis-Gaither, Appalachian State. Davis-Gaither is a modern NFL linebacker in the sense that he is smaller and can cover sideline to sideline. He measured a little taller and heavier than expected, which is good for his stock. The gap between Patrick Queen and Davis-Gaither should not be as big as what some have made it seem over the past month.

Terrell Lewis, Alabama. Lewis is a long, lean player and his numbers supported that visual. His wingspan exceeded 83-inches, which is incredible. He could be a problem around the edge.

Malik Harrison, Ohio State. Harrison checked in near 250 pounds, which was a bit of a surprise. He appeared to be thinner in college but either added weight during the pre-draft process or just carries it really well.

K'Lavon Chaisson, LSU. Chaisson looked really sturdy at his weigh-in. There are concerns about how he will hold up at the next level with his medical history but the tape speaks for itself. He is a special talent and his best football remains ahead of him. 

LB losers

Curtis Weaver, Boise State. Weaver had a bigger body in college. It looked as though he might actually be heavier than his listed 265-pounds. As a stand up edge rusher, the hope is that his weight would come down a little bit. He does everything else so well.
