    Chandler Jones looks more like a Basketball player then a Football player. He could add another 20 pounds to that frame.

    Tavon Wilson looks quite bulky for a safety on the bottom picture, quite surprised at how big he looks out of pads.

    Very cool; thanks. On the second photo down, I wonder if that's Eric Kettani, not Ebner. That's how he's ID's in a similar photo on ESPN (4th pic down).

    Thought the same thing. Not quite LeRon Landry league, but I'm good with that. :)

    Just double-checked, there's two shots US Presswire had, and they ID'd him as Ebner in both :confused:

    With Jones at 6'8", with a long torso and arms, he will never get that barrel chested build that Hightower has. Jones' power is from leverage in his long arms and his mid section. His forearms will build muscle before his biceps from working out with his body type.

    247?! :eek: I've seen a couple of websites having him listed at 266...that's quite the difference.

    Yeah, you're definitely right, Ebner looks like this:

    The Bianca Wilfork training table regimen will fix this

    Heh --yeah, I think Kettani is working himself from Navy shape to football shape, while Ebner, dude's all set.

    Jones weighed in at 266 at the Combine, so that's a real number. It's certainly possible he played lighter last year, but he put up his impressive Combine numbers at the heavier weight.

    Was it here I read that Markell Carter packed on weight by eating peanut butter and banana sandwiches daily?

    Putting weight on Jones shouldn't be a problem as he has the frame to carry it. :rocker:

    On that 4th picture down I intially mistook Dont'a Hightower for Willie McGuinest. I was thinking "What the hell is Willie doing there? Did he come back to N.E. for one last hurrah?" :)

    Then I read the caption. :)

    He's 6'5 and a half.... 266lbs. That's his official Combine height and weight.

    247 is from a previous weigh in long time ago.

    This refrain of Jones needing to "put on weight" is ignorant. He is almost 270 lbs and played with nfl caliber strength in college. His current weight is ideal for maintaining his speed and agility as an OLB. Strength for Jones is not an issue. He has it. If the issue is his "bench reps" as some have indicated, the fact he did 22 reps on the bench with 36 inch arms means he is stronger than Seymour, Mankins, Kiwanuka or Pierre Paul when they were drafted.
