Most linemen start off at around 270 but are forced to gain weight.
How many people on this earth could push two 300lb 6'6 men that can each bench easily over 500lbs each, squat over 500 as well? These linemen are also insanely athletic, their foot quickness for their size is ridiculous, these aren't ordinary men, you'd know that if you've seen them play.
