It is a mistake to think that just because an NFL athlete is >250 pounds, that they cannot run. That they are >250 pounds and CAN run is why they were able to make it to the upper echelon of football.
Yup. You pretty much need to be a genetic freak of nature to star in a defensive front 7 in the NFL. Relatively normal human beings can still occupy these positions in the CFL for the most part.
