Yeah, a lot of them are fat, but they need that weight. Same with sumo wrestlers. They are great athletes who eat specifically to put on weight. There's a big difference between fat and out of shape.
But some linemen don't have good conditioning. Especially the massive run-stopping defensive linemen. They play a few bursts of 7 seconds and have to come out to catch their breath. And almost all football linemen are not in any kind of condition to pay a continuous action game like rugby.
