Weight is really overrated. I don't care how much my DT weighs. I only care if he is strong enough to do his job. How much does Tommie Harris weigh? 295? I bet you wouldn't say he is underweight. That guy never gets pushed around.
Now it's true that bigger guys are usually stronger. But I think too many people just look at a guy's height and weight and make blanket assumptions about him based on just that.
Btw, not saying you are wrong about Okoye as I would like to see him get a little stronger.
