For a `man-mountain`,he didn`t seem overly huge,he actually appeared quite svelte for an O-liner!.I guess he`d slimmed down during TC.
I really am enjoying the book Gonzo.Thanks for your help in all things O-Line!
Oher was a flabby 350 in the time that book was penned. He officially goes 6'5"-309 now and is pretty much like a lot of O linemen from a size perspective. I saw some preseason of him and he looks like a nasty finisher, but I never was impressed by his run blocking in college at Ole Miss.

I saw Oher on TV work out at the NFL combine and he looked trim for an O lineman and moved like a TE. Really great feet on him. Still not sure what kind of run blocker he is, but we will see. No problem on the book reference. Cheers.

Say hi to Joshua Tetley for me
