I've worked with guys who are pro-bowlers and defensive players of the year in the NFL who played linebacker at 245. The difference is they look a lot different at 245 than he does. Shea weighed in at the combine at 260. Granted he probably didn't play at that, so I would have been impressed if he weighed in at 250-255 while being below 14% body fat.
