Yeah that is a good question, but what do you consider big? Some of these guys are a decent size in my book:
(estimates for both ht and wt)
Deschenes - 5'11" - 180lbs
Comeau - 6'+ - 150lbs
Hachey - 6'+ - 160lbs
Vance - 5'10" last fall
Paul - 5'8"+ last fall
Thompson - 5'9" last fall
Scott - 5'10"+ 150lbs
Robinson - 5'10"+ 160lbs
Belec - 5'10" - 160lbs
Tompkins - 5'9" - 160lbs
Leblanc - 5'10" + - 150lbs
Jacob - 5'6" - 140lbs
Adams - 5'7" - 160 - 165lbs
Buck - 5'10" - 160lbs

Again, just guesses, but I bet I'm pretty close on them all.

Belec will likely make the Moncton team next year, but they have a bunch of returners so the 97's here are in tough. I would expect he and Jacob to make it though. I think Jacob is the only one that played any games with them as an affiliate, but that isn't always an indicator anyway.
