Doesn't look that big to me. Keep in mind that he's 6-4. His arms aren't big and neither are his shoulders. He's chiseled but doesn't seem to have the requisite bulk to play DE in the NFL maybe not even 3-4 OLB. Looks like a 4-3 OLB to me in that pic, 240 lbs seems about right.

If he was in that 245 ish range, that would really help him out a lot, he was 238 before, so if he is 240 that isn't a big difference really. But if he is 245 that shows he is putting in the dedication and has the work ethic to possibly make an impact in the NFL. I really think he has a steep climb ahead of him to be succewsful, and I'm a PSU fan.

Who said it was impressive? I just posted it because Maybin's measurement is going to be one of the biggest "events" at the combine because no one knows how big he really is. There have been reports that he's put on like 20lbs but unless he weighed like 220lbs I cant see that. As I said he looks about 240lbs in that pic.

Looks good for a receiving TE but still looks really small. Obviously he's going to be a linebacker. He has ridiculously low body fat but you can still see in his arms, shoulders, in this pic he is really the same maybe more tone but no bulk at all. This doesn't even show his legs which are probably worse, although Jason Taylor is even lankier than that but he's a lot taller.

we talk about weight problems but let's get real people 1) being too light is probably the easiest problem to fix in an NFL strength program 2) He's no smaller than Robert Mathis or a dozen other smallish pass rushers.

02-18-2009, 12:44 PM
He can probably play linebacker in a 3-4 though I'd expect him to struggle mightily much like Lawson during his transition. It goes much further than just the physical aspect, of course. No way would I touch him anywhere near the first round, more like a mid-late second to early third.

ThePudge
02-18-2009, 12:45 PM
He looks like a 3-4 OLB to me. He has the frame to add ten pounds of muscle easily (see his arms/shoulders). Some of you are being excessively critical. Did you expect him to have a Vernon Gholston build? No.

He was known to be pretty light, even for a 3-4 OLB, but in this picture we see he has the frame to add as much weight as he really needs as well as a well-defined chest and mid-section.

Said it before and I'll say it again (and I can't even see the image, it's not pulling up at work). Maybin will be the best 3-4 OLB out of this class. English might give him a run for it, but definitely not Curry.

You people forget it's just weight. ...the easiest thing for a prospect to control...and he's just a junior. The thing you might not be seeing is that he has the frame to add more.

D-Ware was only 250 at the combine and he was a year older than Maybin. Now if you're looking for a finished product, then no, he's not that. But I find it ridiculous to knock him down at this point because of weight numbers.

But Ware had a lot more going for him than Maybin does, Ware had strength, and some more pass rush moves (not too much more though) , as well as better lower body strength and even a little better technique.

Somebody said it before and I really agree with the point, the fact that he doesn't have a ton of experience playing end and rushing the passer simply doing that has to be a perk for teams looking to transition him to OLB. He's raw obviously, but he doesn't have too much to do as far as transitioning because he doesn't have a lot of experience anywhere. Not like he has as much muscle memory he'll have to rewire a bit as a guy coming out after 4 years of playing defensive end.

Its not the weight really its more of his body frame and how the weight adds on to Maybin compared to Ware.

With Maybe he is one cut up guy, lots of lean muscle.

With Ware he is a thick guy with muscle bulk. Might weight the same but the volume and look of those two is totally different.

If you could see this picture, you would think he looks too light to be anything at 3-4 OLB right now. Sure he could end up being the best in this class, but he just looks too lanky currently.

I don't know, I just don't see where the 245 is in this pic. He looks to be 230 or something.

Body aside I just think it's too hard to evaluate Maybin. Does he have potential to be amazing, no doubt, but he's too raw to make any sort of evaluation. He only has an outside speed rush. Nothing else, no technique, no pass rush moves. All we know is he can run around a tackle to get to the QB. You are drafting Jonathan Bender here, either great or a huge useless bust.

Which one is he?






Seriously with the way some of you talk about Maybin he might as well be one of the fat guys.

Agree with everyone on here who are saying we are selling him short on this board. I don't know why so many of you hate him (I know the reasons you have for it, but there are just so many of you).

And honestly I don't know what picture you guys are looking at. He's friggin gigantic. That's got to be 243 at the minimum. He looks like seriously a monster- like really the cloverfield monster. His arms are longer than I ever knew and as other posters pointed out- it's not that difficult to gain weight at 20 years old or whatever he is.

And the thing we are all forgetting is the most important part: the film. He didn't play well against USC (who did?) so that's fresh in everyone's mind. But he dominated during his career and consistently got to the QB- something we know is HIGHLY coveted by NFL teams. Watch the Wisconsin game if you don't believe me.

And he had at least one tackle for loss in every game this season (19 total). He's not as stout at the POA as you'd like but the kid has undeniable instincts and is excellent in pursuit.

Lets put it this way if your in the top 15 you shouldn't touch him he is not going to help you out as a rookie. If you are above that though he would be a great option. He does have a lot of upside, but he does need to learn some more pass rush moves. He isn't the only 3-4 OLB that could stand to learn some too.

(in d***head mode) Actually... muscle is more dense than fat. the proper way to say that would be like this...

If you have the same amount of volume of muscle and fat, the muscle has more mass and will weigh more.

Try 4%. According to ESPN insider's scouting profile...

"Adequate height for a DE but can he add 15 pounds to his frame. Likely to settle in as a rush-LB in the NFL. Is in great physical condition (just four-percent body fat) and displays excellent straight-line speed."

Why? Because he is a prospect who's weight will most definitely determine not only where he gets drafted but also most likely what position he will play. Looking at a recent picture with his shirt off is a decent estimate in terms of how big he really his and how much progress if any he has made. There have been reports that he has put on almost 20lbs and is hovering near 250lbs....unless he is hiding some tree-trunk legs I cant see him being anywhere near 250lbs.

He reminds me ALOT oif Manny Lawson in more than just physical build. With that said, Lawson's main problem has been his strength associated with an inability to bulk-up. His fram simply doesn't get more massive naturally. He has been on a strict weight regimine and is current just over 240 which makes him the leanest 3-4 OLB in the NFL. I can definitely see Maybin having the same problem. Perhaps not and we will see just how he weighs-in in just a few short days.

brat316
02-18-2009, 08:12 PM
Maybe he should just move to Olb, not 3-4, more of a 4-3 lb. He looks more built to drop back and play the run rather than put up a consistent pass rush, from the 3-4 olb spot.

Yeah, I would guess these sub 5 values are more likely then not equipment related. At 5% bodyfat and below your messing with essential bodyfat, ie, your health is at risk and its very difficult to get your body to give it up naturally. With plenty of drugs modern bodybuilders go for 2-4% bodyfat but usually for a very short amount of time and it takes an obsessive amount of work and diet and drugs to get there..

Safetys and WRs get to the point where 230 affects their play. A 230 DE on the other hand spends a lot time on the ground.

He looks like a pro wrestler, meaning someone training for look more then skill.

And since noone else said it I will: HGH. I know everyone's on it so it's not fair to single out, but that definition isn't natural.

Besides who wants a front 7 guy that lean? He can't control a gap built like that.

I was actually going to draw the Taylor Mays comparison if no one else did.

Yeah, I would guess these sub 5 values are more likely then not equipment related. At 5% bodyfat and below your messing with essential bodyfat, ie, your health is at risk and its very difficult to get your body to give it up naturally. With plenty of drugs modern bodybuilders go for 2-4% bodyfat but usually for a very short amount of time and it takes an obsessive amount of work and diet and drugs to get there..

Yea, Eddie George was 3% when he came into the league and kept getting burned out in the 3rd/4th qtr of games so he went to his docs & they told him his body couldn't store enough energy when he was that lean so he went up to around 8%.

I know that he doesn't have prototypical SDE Bulk, but I'd be fine/happy if the Texans drafted Maybin.

That definition isn't natural? I really don't think you know what you're talking about. Go to any gym. Even one in Podunkville, Canada and you'll see lots of guys who look that cut and not all of them take HGH or steroids or whatever you would like to assume. The guy is going to be a professional football player, it's fair to assume his body will have alot better definition than the average joe.

What I don't want to see is him weigh in at 255 pounds at the Scouting Combine, not workout and then check in at like 240 pounds when he runs at his Pro Day.

the thing about Maybin is he isn't perfect prospect by any means but he's potentially a top 5 guy in 2010 draft that teams could get at a discount.

Take it for what it is worth, but I go to PSU and they had Maybin on a local espn interveiw and he said that people are going to be suprised by his weight, and that he was going to participate in all of the drills

I dont understand what the argument is about. He looks exactly what he is thought to be, an undersized defensive end/ OLB. Wait till the combine and he runs a probably a low 4.5. Keep in mind too that he will probably be the youngest player in the entire draft. Also for anyone to accuse him HGH hasn't been around too many athletes in their lives.

He looks about as big as Darnell Bing did when he bulked up for linebacker. Granted, Bing had a tiny lower body, but Maybin's isn't that great either. We'll just have to wait and see how he weighs in.


Darnell Bing was WAY thick them him with huge arms. He got too big.

Aaron Maybin claimed he was 250lbs back around January 25th.

I cant wait to see what he weighs-in at during the combine.

Maybin said he lives in an apartment that is “2-3 minutes away,” and not far from five former PSU teammates who are also here training. Maybin rises early and takes part in double sessions, one for strength and one for speed. And he eats specially prepared meals designed to add size to his 6-4 frame.

Last week, Maybin said he weighed in the 242-245 range. This week, he said he’s gained eight pounds.

His explosiveness, agility, and motor makes up for his size.

That has yet to be proven in the NFL. Everything in this thread as positives for Maybin were said of Manny Lawson and he has been a failure as far as his ability to sack the QB. He excells at aspects of his game but he has yet to become a consistent pass rusher.

You cant evaluate Maybin based on an NFL comparison and how Lawson hasnt lived up to the hype. Lawson had a good Rookie season but tore his ACL his 2nd season and never has been the same...

He was a DB with a DB build with the exception of his arms and chest. His legs were like a pair of chopsticks. Mabin is 235 and 2 inches taller.
