The Big Weigh-In


As a self-diagnosed health fiend, I consider myself terribly unqualified and therefore perfect to feed your desire for shirtless college dudes. Pretend this is normal.

Notable weights:

Joe Gore, 294 - Since I labeled him an X-Factor, I was impressed with his physique. Our most imposing offensive lineman (in this video, at least) in my view. We know the physical tools are there, let's hope he can put it together on the field.

Jay Guillermo, 324 - He's been away from the program for a semester and he appeared to gain bad weight. If this number were after an entire offseason of weightlifting, we would feel better.

Mitch Hyatt, 285 - We hoped for 290, but it's tough to complain. He still put on much needed mass considering the lack of depth at tackle.

Milan Richard, 248 - Jesus. Looks like his uncle Herschel. He will take considerable playing time from a veteran this year. Given our awful TE production since Brandon Ford departed, I will not be surprised if he is the starter.

Tyshon Dye, 213 - Trimmed down and still looks like a load.

Wayne Gallman, 210 - I am happy enough with this. At 6'1" he needed more weight, but adding too much can be risky for a skill player. I would've liked to see him reach 215 given his height.

Deshaun Watson, 207 - I hoped for 210, but it's not like I want him to be our short yardage back. A strong left knee was the focus this offseason, as it should have been.

Clelin Ferrell, 257 - Fantastic gains for a freshman. Another much-needed body to throw in the mix.

Bert Huggins, 286 - Very cut for 286. Physically ready to contribute.

Christian Wilkins, 299 - Big enough to contribute inside at tackle, athletic enough to help outside at end. War Daddy.
