CHARLOTTE – Northwestern tackle Rashawn Slater’s arms were long enough to keep NFL defensive rookie of the year Chase Young from touching his quarterback.

So Slater is a little mystified, and perhaps a little bothered, that it keeps coming up.

Slater is a solid Top-10 prospect for the 2021 NFL Draft anyway, and he doesn’t see the fact his arms measure 33 inches (in an ideal world, tackles would have 35-inch arms) as a big deal.

“It’s definitely tiring,” Slater said after Northwestern’s pro day workout Tuesday. “When you put so much work in, put all that film out of you playing tackle, for people to question you based off of a measurable.

“But honestly, as far as the teams I’ve talked to, they’ve been pretty honest with me about saying it’s not a huge concern for them.”
