You are correct! Actually I think he weighed over 300lbs., and was a 41st rounder. I gotta' say though this guy makes me run for the concession stands when he comes in. He's got a lot to prove before I'll be able to watch. He should be lights out. He will need a new brain, because what I saw last year was a guy who's mind had been broken.
