    Keeping in mind that Ego is standing next to Kyle Fuller who goes 6' and 195lbs (not exactly tiny) in comparison he is none big mother forker and at 315lbs he not fat. Compare that body to Fridge who was also about 315lbs when he arrived in 1985 and you can see that these guys are much better conditioned than players were 30 years ago.

    Will Sutton is in the middle of the back row next to Charles Leno Jr. so his girth is hidden but if someone asked where our other DT was I doubt they'd pick him out of that lineup. Besides he looks far too studious with those rims on. We need to get him working on his "I'm a lean mean fightin' machine look".

    I think the man on the right in Leno. And jbunch14 is correct, Sutton is standing next to Ferguson.

    I can't copy/past the thumbnails off the bears website but check out Leno's and Fergusson's picture when you do a "mouse over" on their names on the roster page.

    Hate to say it, but Soul is correct, Sutton is the one in dreads and glasses, look up Will Sutton, and his wiki image has his dreads pulled back wearing those rims.
    [​IMG] this is a pic of Sutton.

    [​IMG] this is a pic of Leno Jr.

    Ego is a beast of a man regardless of who's next to him though, and is the reason he wasn't making it to the Bears in the 3rd, let alone 4th round. If they have the staff to get his technique up to par he's going to be a stalwart for this interior DL for years to come.

    One thing that strikes me about the picture is the camera angle. It seems to be taken from an upward angle (meaning the camera is lower than their heads/shoulders and the picture is taken at a slight angle). If I am correct, this will make the second row seem shorter/smaller than they really are.

    Ferguson looks like he a at least 2" shorter than Leno (at least that is what it appears to me).

    Back row, left to right: Pat O'Donnell (P) 6-4 220, Will Sutton (DT) 6-1 315, Ego Ferguson (DT) 6-3 309

    Front row: Brock Vereen (S) 6-0 199, Ka'Deem Carey (RB) 5-9 207, David Fales (QB) 6-2 212, Kyle Fuller (CB) 6-0 194, Charles Leno, Jr. (T) 6-4 303


    Ego and Sutton are both listed as "6" on the Bears roster. They're not the same height obviously. Sutton is 6-1 and Ego is 6-3 according to other sites.

    Think you flipped Ego and Suttons weights, Ego is listed at 315, and Sutton is actually under 300. But otherwise thanks!

    Yeah, you're all correct. Just wanted to see if you all were paying attention is all. :lol 032:

    Well then Charles Leno is a big dude and yeah chuckster the perspective makes the back row look smaller than they really are. You know, I could see this whole group making the team or the PS this year. There really isn't a bad pick in the bunch.

    Yeah they spend tens of thousands of dollars on that website but can't seem to find an extra hundred to pay someone to get the measurables correct. Stuff goes on there wrong and can stay that way for years.

    Ferguson's Combine poop says he's about 6'3" and 315lbs and we already know Sutton is down around 290lbs and could be headed even lower. At least they got the 6' part right but more by accident than on purpose. :ohmygod:

    Nah, the 6 foot part is wrong too. They both show as 6. But Sutton is 6-1 and Ferguson is 6-3.

    So, who was able to look at Ferguson's Combine poop and infer his height from his excrement? Sounds like something out of CSI...

    I meant they got Sutton's height correct. He measured an even 6'/303lbs at the Combine and those are considered to be the most accurate measurables. Their college stuff is often fudged. Aaron Donald measured just under 6'1". Sutton has always been listed an inch shorter but I've never seen that as a big deal for either of them. The shorter they are (to a point) the easier it is to play low and maintain leverage.

    Ferguson's Combine measurables were 6'3"/315lbs but we also know that once these guys are drafted teams will assign them a weight range they want them to play within so Ferguson could be a few pounds lighter than that and we already know that Sutton is. Emery wants him in the 285-295lb range an IMHO as a 3 tech DT the closer to 285lbs he plays the better. He needs speed and leverage not bulk to play there.

    Actually I asked the NCIS bunch to check Ego's poop and they nailed it. Besides I get a kick out of Abby. LOL
