    I feel that 6'4" 280 with speed and quickness would be a great size for offensive linemen. They could get under the pads of taller players and push them around to open running lanes. What do you folks think?
    I was a member here about 10 years ago and I really enjoyed reading the comments from the board.

    Never been a fan of 6-6 olineman. They don't seem to get leverage in the run game compared to someone a little shorter

    we need 5 Lebron's and all will be good.
    or maybe 11 Lebron's. Lebron can just throw fades to Lebron all game long while the other Lebron's block.

    That doesn’t mean they don’t exist. I tend that they don’t need all 6-6 players!

    People tend to mirror their leadership, meaning that attitudes, willingness to work hard and do the right things the right way tend to prevail. 6-6 or 6-8 if they are taught the right way and execute those things to the very best of their abilities, I don't think it makes a lot of difference. If you have an athlete and someone with a lot of heart and desire, I think they can be successful. I think our walk on linemen of yesteryear kind of show that.

    SF offense is based on endurance and speed with quick feet. so height and weight are a bonus.

    6'2" - 6'4" 290-310 Are my general rule. However I also think that how the weight is distributed matters. See below. Not a lot of fat in that pic. Most the chests are bigger than waists. Awful lot of big muscular arms.

    Never been a fan of guys that look like this.
