This guy is a wrecking machine at 5-10 / 230. Excellent addition to the World Champs. I can see why the AOL Ravens fans are worried.

the word is that his numbers are slanted up and down...he's actually 5'9" maybe shorter and weighs closer to 240-245...in an interview he said, "I like weighing 243, at 243 I feel fast" which leads me to believe he's more of a tank than they have listed. Another great stat is in two years at UNLV with over 240 touches (runs and receptions) The Tank has 0 fumbles...the dude doesn't let go of the ball...maybe him bench pressing 225 30 times has something to do with that.

here's a great link to his pro day...didn't get a combine invite.

You got to love Pittsburgh. This guy is a folk hero already and he hasn't even had a carry in pads. I hope Frank the Tank knows how lucky he is to have landed in a town that worships its short-yardage specialists!
