The list: Heaviest Redskins

There are many ways to list players like by last name and uniform number. We wanted to look for other ways, like weight.

Anybody who's ever followed the NFL Draft or free agency knows the importance placed on intangibles, including height and bulk. Therefore, we decided to take a look at the biggest, shortest, heaviest and lightest on the Redskins' roster. Next up, the really big guys.

In the trenches, along the offensive and defensive lines, you will find the most physical contact, similar to post play in basketball. As a result, you must have weight to withstand relentless body blows throughout a game and season, while not getting pushed around like a rag doll. Lets take a look at the heaviest members of the Washington Redskins.

1. 335 pounds: T Kevin Bowen, T Morgan Moses, T Ty Nsekhe

4. 330 pounds: NT Kedric Golston, NT Jerrell Powe

6. 326 pounds: G Shawn Lauvao

7. 325 pounds: G Arie Kouandjio

8. 324 pounds: G Spencer Long

9. 323 pounds: G Brandon Scherff

10. 320 pounds: DE Chris Baker, T Trent Williams

It is a testament to these eleven Redskins' stamina and athleticism that they are able to consistently move around on approximately 50 to 80 plays per game while sporting bulky padding at their size. Unlike these players, some at this weight have to take a break every once in awhile.

Should Bowen, a training camp longshot, make the 53-man roster as Washington's fourth offensive tackle, that would mean 320 pound Trent Williams would be the smallest of the bunch. Of course, the Pro Bowler is the largest on talent. From last year's team, only the centers Kory Lichtensteiger and Josh LeRibeus fail to make the list.

Out of the current 89 man roster, the average Redskin weighs in at 250 pounds.

Here's a look at one of those really big guys next to a defensive back.
