    I took the new roster and calculated a beast number (Weight/Height). I know some names are spelled wrong, but I am in a hurry. I left Godhigh on there from last year as a comparison.

    Godhigh 2.95

    Laskey 2.97
    Custis 2.88
    Connors 2.85
    Donavan 2.96

    Days 3.14
    Perkins 3.00
    Andrews 2.53

    Jorden 2.76
    Byerly 2.99
    JT 2.61

    Smelter 3.00
    June 2.91
    Waller 3.01
    Autry 2.51

    Gotsis 3.70
    Gamble 3.64
    Green 3.89
    Kitchens 3.6
    Kallon 3.84

    Hunt Days 3.32
    Tre 3.21
    Davis 3.07
    Harrell 3.09
    Nealy 3.23
    Cheeks 3.12

    Not a great comparison really. Weight growth is exponential while height increases are linear.

    Is so : )

    Perhaps it is not a perfect normalization, but it does have some normalization effect.

    The numbers do show correlation with pictures and is more accurate for near height groups.

    JT might not be a beast, but he is Matrix quick.

    How would Danny Devito stack up?

    Boomer, that is why I did not do the OL. I tried to stick to the people I know had more trim profiles.

    Of course these number do not display ability or drive... I just wanted to see how people compare.

    Tre must be about as built as you can be given his height.

    As a refinement, I would multiply by (1 - body fat %).

    Maybe you can include body fat and 225 rep... That, along with your numbers, may be interesting.

    I know. I just thought I would throw a jab in there for fun.
