Maybin adds 20 pounds

Penn St. DE/OLB Aaron Maybin apparently heard the critics that said he was too light to be a DE in the NFL. Admitting that he finished his final college season at 230 pounds.

“They wanted to see me put on some weight,” said Maybin. “So I went to work and put on 20 pounds. I feel real good right now.” 

Maybin is now at 250 and said he feels good and more explosive than when he was 230. He’s been doing a lot of explosion, power lifting type training. We’ll see if it pays off, but many expect him to have a monster workout, which will only send him further up the first round board.

At 250 he would play heavier than Aaron Schobel. I don’t know if that’s big enough to handle the left end spot, but he could certainly play an end position in Buffalo’s 4-3 system, provided the same speed and explosion show up in the workout.
