Overall, it’s about what you might expect. The defensive front has shed weight, with the only d-lineman weighing more than 300 pounds is freshman Lamont Gaillard. (Ed. note: Chris Mayes shows up at over 300 pounds, as well.) The offensive line has grown, with Zach DeBell adding an astounding 25 pounds. Outside linebacking has picked up size, while on the inside Wilson added a few pounds and Herrera has dropped a bunch – 13 pounds to 231 (if that makes him quicker and improves his stamina without affecting his strength, he could be somebody to watch next month).
A couple of names caught my eye. Theus is up to 313 now, which is good-sized for a tackle. The question is how mobile he is. And on the other side, Ray Drew bucked the trend and added eight pounds. Better strength, or could that be a reason he’s not been able to push up the depth chart yet?
The number I was most interested in seeing turned out to be 226. That’s Todd Gurley’s listed weight. It’s a few pounds less than last year’s official weight, but not so much that you worry about his ability to plow into defenders.
What do you guys see?
