I was kind of surprised to see that Manti was only 6'1 241, after seeing him listed at 6'2 255 for his junior year and 248 last year. I'm guessing the height was rounding up, but do people think ND added 10-15 lbs as well?
Seems like the other ND combine participants weights were within a couple of pounds of what ND had been reporting, so I am guessing that Manti did weigh over 250 at times at ND and has dropped quite a bit of weight both since season end and particularly since 2011, then I thought he looked a bit heavy.
I wonder what sort of time he would have run at 250+?
6'1 241 and 4.82 suffers a bit in comparison to Kuechly from BC last year who ran a 4.58 at 6'3 243.
I understand that sprinting is best done when relaxed, and while every guy there must feel a lot of pressure, Manti had to be under even more pressure than most, coming off the press conf. Hopefully he can perform better at ND pro day
