Being a personal longtime friend of DD Acholonu for the past 11 years I can tell you he is just as big as most of the other linebackers on the Roster. He is 6'3 243 not 6'2 232. Dont believe me, look up the Houston Texans Roster. I think there was only 2 or 3 other linebackers heavier than him. This kid is solid muscle and will be a great addition to the 3-4 and specialty teams because of his 4.4-4.5 speed. He led the Pac-10 in sacks his sophmore year and didnt even start a game that year. He's second all time at Wash. St. in Sacks and and Tackles for Loss. All of this while only starting his Senior Year. He was projected to be drafted as early as the 4th round but because of a hamstring injury at the combine he posted a slower 40 than what he can run and for some reason he was listed as the 6'2 232 when he's bigger than that.

I think the biggest thing is that there are 6 linebackers with very little experience, 3 rookies and 3 with 1 year of experience. Should be interesting to see which of those 6 make it.
