A 6-5 senior DE should not weigh only weigh 245lbs if he has been in the program 4 years.

Here are the top 3 DE picked in last years NFL draft. Not saying we have any NFL draft prospects on the defensive line, but considering we are comparing an FCS DE with the Top 3 NFL draft picks, I’d say at 6’5″ and 245 lbs, we’re in the ball park.

Jadeveon Clowney 6’5″ 266 lbs – 1st pick
Dee Ford – 6’2″ – 252 lbs – 23rd pick
DeMarcus Lawrence – 6’3″ – 260 – 34th pick

But to take it a step further, after reviewing the average size of defensive ends in the other Patriot League schools….seems pretty consistent.
