Regardless none of this changes the fact that its no harder for any person to gain weight, the only difference is some people have to eat more than others to do it, and because we don't all have the same appetites it could be more difficult for that person to stomach the food. However, thats where liquid calories like oils, milk etc make it much easier.

I guess what I'm trying to say is if Gernat had the dedication to his diet to put on the mass, he could, simple as that.
I think moving to a different country and adjusting to a different culture/game, and getting shoulder surgery probably hampered that a bit. He hasn't really had much time to do anything since he was drafted. When you look at combine results year after year the kids are all skinny and weak. It goes with being a teenager.

I mentioned previously that he had an interview with someone here and stated that he wants to make gaining weight a priority and realizes it's necessary. He'll get it done. I think the bigger concern is whether he can learn to play his position properly.
