Larsen may have had the best day of any Utah prospect and built on his strong showing at the Senior Bowl. He measured out at 6-4 and 313 pounds with a 31 1/2-inch arm span and 9 1/4-inch hands. Larsen was average in most drills, but showed his strength by benching 225 pounds 36 times, tied for second-best among all offensive line prospects. However, he also had the second-shortest arm measurement and second-smallest hand measurement of any offensive lineman, both big negatives for a position that requires long arms and larger hands to fend off charging defensive linemen. Still, Larsen is a fit for a zone-blocking team that puts a premium on smaller, quicker linemen, and his versatility to play guard or center will also help. He’s currently projected as a fifth- or sixth-round pick.
