Any perceived disadvantage in arm length is hilarious when you've got bigger, stronger muscles to lift with. They ask 190 lb. guys to lift 225 but they don't ask 300 lb. guys to lift 350.
Why are you comparing a small corner to a lineman?

Limb liength doesn't come into the equation like how you are describing it...

It comes into factor when you have two guys of similar body size...Like if you have two big guys, one with long arms and the other built with a more stocky build...

Guys with that bull dog build tend to be able to lift more because they are just more compressed and don't have to move the weight as far...
