Default Defensive Tackle

Want to improve your defensive tackle position check out DeVonte Peterson, he is 6 foot 2 and weighs 275. He has played 3 years in NFL Europe with the Scotish Claymores for 2 and the world champion Berlin Thunder for 1. He also played in 2004 with the Hamilton Tiger Cats. There is more info on him on Berlins website berlin-thunder.de/home.asp

Too small to play DT in the 3-4.

Do you really think so, He could probably add on 15 lbs. and he would lose any of his quickness and could still stop the run

I'm sure that he has been in big time progressive resistance programs for 5-7 years at least. If he is playing at 275 in his third year I'm not sure if he would have the natural frame to carry 25 more pounds of muscle, and it takes a 300 pounder (more or less) to play 2-gap tackle positions on the defensive line. Todays NFL Guards and Tackles are often going around 330, and with great explosion and quickness.
