FWIW, I would suggest that Ribeiro
gained AT LEAST 20-25 lbs since his draft. Watching him at the Bob, I sometimes lost sight of him when he turned sideways. No way he was much more than 150 back then. Probably got down into the 140's at times. So if he's up to 175 now, that is some gain.
But really, I don't care too much either way. It's not the size that counts. We've had lots of players in lots of eras who didn't weight 175 lbs, and they managed to have nice careers. I don't think it's holding Ribeiro back at all. He's fine at his weight AFAIC.
