07:42 AM ET 01.15 | Downpours pushed Tuesday's East practices indoors due to rain, but it didn't dampen many spirits. [NFL scouts] and those in attendance were eager to see the West squad in the afternoon, especially with Romeo Crennel's group in full pads for the first time this week. And while the quarterbacks struggled, several defensive line prospects stood out on Tuesday. Entering the week, my top defensive tackle prospect participating this week was Louisiana Tech DT Justin Ellis (6-2, 351) and he hasn't disappointed so far. He used his active hands and quick feet to beat blockers during drills, putting spin moves on Oklahoma's Gabe Ikard and also steamrolling him on a few occasions. To no surprise, Ellis weighed in as the heaviest prospect here at 351 pounds and he uses that girth well to bully blockers and surge through the line of scrimmage.

So the thread topic is a megasized DLineman, and the pic is of a QB and center. Makes perfect sense to me.

You are probably right.

Maybe they'll still be resting today and there will be peace on the threads.

The pic features center Gabe Ikard, who was frequently ineffective against future nose tackle, Justin Ellis, the drool object of the blurb. If FN doesn't have a stock pic of the bully, they go with the stock pic of the bullied.

This dude is 6'2", and weighs in at 351 pounds? I foresee MAJOR knee problems in this kid's future.
