Actually he's on the average side. When you take into account muscle mass that players have, he seems to be at a good weight, for his height.

For the newbies, i'm pretty sure that they took all the rookies playing weight (the weight they were listed at playing in college) for their weight, so i dont think many of those are accurate.
Words of wisdom.

You really can't tell by looking at big guys to tell their weight, atleast the average person can't. Most think anyone over 200 if fat. I remember going in for shoulder surgery, the anesthesiologist, had the nurse, weigh me three time, cause he didn't believe, I weighed 327 at the time. I was very active in the gym and had a good amount of muscle mass. Which weighs less the fat.

He could get to 265, but, even if he stayed at 260, I'm sure his BMI will change. He'll add muscle mass and drop fat.

I thought for a given volume muscle weighs more than fat. that's why a person with a lot of muscle can weigh more than a person with less muscle although they may be approximately the same size physically.

Muscle > Fat per volume by weight.
