Obviously I can look it up sometime but how does Ford’s size compare to the top players at his position in the blue blood programs like Alabama? Is 248 about right?

Looked up their 2020 roster and they have 1 DL at 220 pounds, 1 around 260, and the rest are 280+ which seems pretty heavy, especially for edge rushers.

Average weight of DE’s at the 2018 Combine was 270, but there’s also plenty of guys like Dallas DE Demarcus Lawrence who’s 250 being very productive.

Don’t know if that helps haha, but essentially I don’t think the body weight matters, it’s more of what are you able to do with that weight.
