    I'm going to do what it takes to put protection around your son and help him succeed.

    I can't stop a looking at this video. Is he having a seizure or something? What the hell is wrong with him? He surely has seen a black man at this point in his life, right?

    I really hope Saleh is the real deal. He seams like a freaking awesome coach that players, fans, media and just about everyone will love (all predicated on winning obviously.)

    Well he just turned 21 and was finally allowed to rent Black Panther. I think that was his first experience with black folks. You can imagine the confusion.

    Well, I hope they put him on a carb heavy diet between now and TC. Kid needs to bulk up or he won't survive his rookie contract. Pancakes and Protein shakes with a heavy does of weightlifting should get the kid bulked up enough to take the pounding he's got coming.

    He's only like 8lbs lighter than Trevor Lawrence and Deshaun Watson.

    He has narrow shoulders; he’s not getting bigger. Unless it’s in the belly. He’s probably the heaviest he’s ever been right now and that was for the pre-draft process. If I had to bet money on it, it’s more likely he goes a bit back down for his playing weight than up.

    Wilson can put weight on. His Dad is huge. A former defensive tackle. His little brother is a middle linebacker headed to BYU. The genes are there.

    just cause he looks like he's 12 in the face doesn't mean there isn't a big body there

    So you expect his base frame will magically get bigger? He's slim and narrow, it's not like he has a big base to add weight where he needs to (torso up).

    It's not a complete death wish for his career though it is a concern.

    He has a bigger base than you realize. Again, his baby face is throwing off your judgement.

    I agree he looks skinny because he's carrying more weight in his legs and not in his upper body. But honestly, I think this is a good thing; lower body strength is often a much better indicator of longevity in this role.

    Time will tell, though...

    No I'm not. It's right there for you. He has a smaller frame and narrower shoulders than 6'0" 205 Jamarr Chase who he's standing right next to.

    He doesn't really use his legs a ton in his throwing motion. It's more of an upper body torque. It's not about body weight for power or strength though. It's about body weight for protection from getting hit, being fallen on when going to the turf, etc.
