Default 331 lbs

That is the average weight of our starting OL. Wow. That's huge!

I gotta believe that we have the largest OL in the league at 331 lbs.

The Ravens had the largest OL a few years ago at 327 lbs now average 317.

Hopefully that size translates to pushing some teams around and making holes for Mendenhall to run through.

The average is probably skewed by the fact that Essucks is one of the fastest O-Lineman in the league.

I hope so but I have noticed that Mendenhall starts falling down after first contact on a lot of plays. Don't get me wrong but just look at the preseason games this year. On some plays if he just keeps on moving his legs he maybe could break loose for another 15 or 20 yards.
