That is impressive though seems like TE would be a better fit

After he was selected, they showed video of him trucking dudes. I thought the same thing - he needs to be TE or H-back

If he can catch he'd be my TE and Id let the defense know he was getting the ball.

looking at his tape this dude is going to get knocked out. He’s never really lowered his shoulder and takin a head to head hit. If he can handle that the dude might be really good.

Reminds me of years ago when the NFL was trying to get Jonah Lomu, who was a similarly sized beast. Unfortunately, his health was already starting to break down, so it never happened.

That's great and all but in the trenches he will be going against guys bigger than him.

How many NFL players are bigger than 6'8" and 350 lbs?

And the dumb arse of the year award goes toooo. 6'8" 350 is more than likely the biggest or close to the biggest guy in the NFL lol.
