    teams prefer pass-rushers with longer arms because it allows them to separate quickly from offensive linemen. Still short-arm pass-rushers can have success. Two of the better pass-rushers in the NFL, Kansas City’s Tamba Hali and Minnesota’s Jared Allen, have arms in the same length range as Ingram.
    Jared Allen - AFC West Blog - ESPN

    And Ingram's are 31.5". So JA's and Tamba Hali's arm lengths are in the 31.5" range, shorter than Floyd's 31.75".

    I think JA & Hali are doing pretty good. Agreed?

    I can't find any data but I don't think John Randle had very long arms from what I remember of him.
