What are the odds he even makes it to the NFL - reminds me of the "fridge"

I saw this story the other day and laughed. Other than his size and the fact that he plows over teenagers, he doesn't look very impressive. Plus, much of his size is fat. Doubt he'll even make it on a decent college team. His chances of making the NFL are probably nil.

If he keeps going the way he is now, he will probably end up as some sideshow for a Junior College team. The coaches aren't doing any favors eschewing teaching him a proper OL or DL position. If he goes to a higher level and tries the same moves in the video, he will probably get a concussion or a blown out knee.

He has some size but needs some molding. If he falls in with the right people, he could be a force. Then you could throw him a bone every now and then a la Fridge and Anthony Munoz.

That is if he wants to go that route, maybe he's just having fun right now and will go into something else as a career path.

I totally agree. Terrible running form (needs to get lower), and he's not fast AT ALL. The only reason he's good is that he's literally too big to tackle at his current level of competition. That will not continue at the next level, unless as mentioned he goes to a low-level JC.

Anyway, he should be learning a OL/DL position.

At least he's 6' 4".

I found a stat that says 532 NFL players were over 300lbs in 2010.

In 1970 there was only 1.

It's also noticeable that once people started tackling him lower, he goes down... tackling technique in football is often about stopping forward progress and not always bringing the player down (unlike in rugby). Good reasons for that, off course, but with such a size differential, just get him down and tied up around the legs, and second guy can try and hit ball arm as well. If he stands up, there's plent of ways to get helmet on ball and strip it.

Personally I think, at 6'4" and 400lb, he should be learning nutrition and getting that bulk down before he blows a knee out.

He is too far out to project, but not good. Definately not as an RB. Wisconsin had a guy named Aaron Gibson that showed up on campus at 435 pounds, but he shed some weight, and eventually made it to the league. Ole Miss also had Terrell Brown a few years ago, who was widely thought to be over 400 pounds, but he was mored widely known for his ability to break chairs by using them for their normal purpose.

That fat ass has no chance of making it as a RB in the NFL.

But I say his chances of dying from a heart attack before age 25 are pretty fair.
