Aldon Smith is 2" shorter & 15 lbs heavier. The equivalent at 6'6" is over 265..
You gotta take him as is & if he plays like you say, I've got no problem with that. We're going to need freaks to play TEs if they continue to go the way of Gronk & Graham.
As far as not getting pushed around in college, you know it's a whole knew league. Every takle in the NFL will push him around at 243. His best bet would be to use his speed & work on his hand game.
That's not entirely true.
Lots of players tend to add a little weight...Von Miller added weight this off season so he could play stronger at the LOS....Ray Lewis added weight over his career and then slimmed down latter as he got older...
Hasn't slowed them down any.
Some guys can do it...other guys can't....
