Bills took a defensive tackle with their final pick, a very big defensive tackle. Michael Jasper out of Bethel has about 60 pounds on Bills top pick Marcell Dareus.
Jasper (6’4 1/2″, 378) played in 2010 at 430 pounds (according to him), but with the Bills scout Matt Hand practically stalking the small school prospect over the past year, he was motivated to drop the weight for a shot at an NFL career.
“They showed the most interest,” said Jasper. “For them to put it into action with a draft pick is a big deal.”
Jasper said the heaviest he ever weighed was 448 pounds. Here’s a photo of the big man when he was in training getting his weight down these past four months.
