    I read in a draft magazine that at the combine Elvis Dumervil showed up with 20% body fat.

    It's a good thing Jay Cutler was a proven winner in college. Oh wait, nevermind.

    That's only 40% less than chunk-ass Jared Allen. He won't have 20% after "the sled."

    Predicted response: "Mehhh, Jared sacked Jake Plummer twice last year!"

    Actual response: At 6'6", 265 pounds Jared Allen is pretty light for a guy that tall.

    i kind of like the idea. and it does warm my heart just a touch that shanny might have actually had improving DT in mind, even if just a little bit, during this draft.

    yes at 258lbs he is too small, but if you put 20lbs on, hed be about 280. thats okay for a pure pass specialist DT. apparently he's stout against the run despite his size, so on obvious passing downs, he could be okay.

    as already posted, the scouting reports say dumervil has the best assortment of moves of anyone coming out of college. that means he doesnt have to attack the edge to be successful. with warren taking up double teams, that should leave dumervil 1 on 1 with a guard. obviously we wont know if his rush moves work on this level until he gets a chance to try them but, with his motor, if they do we might actually get sacks from the interior of our line.

    but where i see big potential, is him beside lang in a nickel formation. if they can both be in the 270-280 range, they will be a very versatile duo. coyer is talking about opening the line up a bit more. these two have the potential to both be able to rush inside, and both be able to go wide.

    in situations where we are putting pass rush as first priority for our linemen (i'll believe it when i see it) having a guy like dumervil who has speed AND pass rush moves ( ) lining up at DT could be the piece we are missing.

    I think dumervills strength is underrated, he put up 30 reps of 225 in the combine.

    PLAN OF ATTACK: The Broncos got the NCAA Division I leader in sacks (20) and forced fumbles (10) with the addition of fourth-round pick Elvis Dumervil of Louisville.

    But while Dumervil fancies himself a defensive end, Denver eventually might experiment with the 5-foot-11, 258-pounder at either tackle spot, provided he makes significant weight gains.

    "We think he's a player that can play both outside and inside," coach Mike Shanahan said.
    Yes, I noticed that possibility was mentioned on the official website the day after the draft:

    Dumervil (No. 126) was pegged by Head Coach Mike Shanahan as a possibility to play as a three-technique nose tackle.

    "We think he is a player that can play both outside and inside," Shanahan said.

    also to add...that in the bench press it is best if you have short arms.. and well it has been noted that he has long arms.. so i would say considering he has loger arms 30 is a great number.. i am sure there are alot of OL DL in this league that have around 20% body fat..so i think that point is pretty null and void

    It's different when you are a DE, where speed counts. I wouldn't think most teams want a fatass at DE.

    20% body fat is hardly a 'fatass'. its not exactly cut and ripped, but its not exactly fat either. its a little soft in the midsection, but its about average. im sure he keeps his weight up a little bit to help him stand up to the pounding he takes on the defensive line. as long as he has a good work ethic off the field, i would expet a pro training regimine would drop that % a little bit (while increasing his weight and stamina), but i dont think they would want him getting below 13-15%. especially if they do plan on playing him some at DT.

    dummervill ran a 4.7 something at the combine.. so i dont think we have to worry about his speed.. or his fat %

    Dumervil's strength, speed, his moves, and 6'8'' wingspan will make him effective period... He may not be an every down player, but the rotation, and the swapping of players around could help keep our D-line fresh and more active late in games.

    Plus Burton gives us a big body in the middle off the bench...

    He's 6'3'' 315.
    God Bless D. Williams and D. Nash. May their family and friends find peace in knowing that they were both truly loved by all. And they shall never be forgotten.
