Thanks. Just was curious. The OL will be a lot bigger than recent memory with CPJ. Lots of near 300lb and 300+ lb guys

Starters are bigger than in previous years and only the backups for RT and RG are smaller than the starter. At LT, LG, and C, the backups are larger, and considerably larger at LG and LT. Big is good but not always best.

Fat and fast is rare. Slow lineman and our scheme don't mix well typically. Probly least important at center spot but important their too IMO

Our offensive lineman have been fat and out of shape for the past few years. Hopefully these 300 pounders are because of their frame not their pot belly.
I agree to some degree.I would not have believed it but I watched Jackson at the start of LAST yrs Spring game and he got beat TWICE in a row by a 2nd unit DL.It was a harbinger of things to come.That VT game was pathetic.
