Everyone's NFL in Deep Balls A blog by Warhorse Posted June 3, 2012 Thank you both for reading and responding. Just a few days after writing this, I was listening to Gil Brandt on Sirius Radio (a must buy for fans of the NFL). The question was asked about the comparison of players size and ability from different eras. Mr Brandt said that in 1979, the largest offensive lineman was 279 pounds in that years draft. Last season, the smallest offensive lineman drafted was in the mid 290's. They are indeed changing.I do have Sirius Satellite Radio & I love it. I often turn the sound down on my TV & listen to Bob Lamey give play by play analysis during Colts games. It's almost like being at Lucas Oil Stadium.
