Monster DT, looking at NU for official

You remember not even a few years ago where you could look even in the NFL and not find an interior defensive tackle over 6'3"? Yeah, there was a couple here and there, but even now, they just aren't that big. Not because they can't be, but because it seems that the stereotypical size of that position hasn't skyrocketed like every other. Evolution has hit that spot to though and get ready for Xavier Fulton, because he fits the "new mold" like a glove.

6'5" and 265 lbs. Used to be, that would say to me, offensive tackle, tight end, pure-passing QB (but a tall one) or perhaps a defensive end and wide receiver as well. It didn't say to me, defensive tackle, because they just weren't that big. They are now and Xavier Fulton's frame makes him ideal as the interior guys are getting bigger along with everyone else.
