    NFL website lists him at 6 foot 7 313. I might as well ask, is he Dick's grandson?

    Nick, how about a summary of your view of his skills. I am confident that you will have some knowledge on this guy.

    This is weird. NFL.COM claims he is 6'7", and on one page has him at 313 lb. and on another 299 lb.

    This qualifies as the first "Charley Special" pick for the Rams. Too bad Mr. Armey wasn't in the war room to see it. He is retired and living in Arizona.

    This is great...

    Van Dyk, the Rams' 7th-round OT, played right tackle at Portland State. He wants to become a detective once his football days are over.

    The later rounds of the draft are always the "maybe" they will make the team or maybe not. Be it 6'7 or 6'9 what is this guy's 40time? I am thinking FB and yes I do know he is a tackle.

    Get that mass in motion and Sir Isaac Newton laws of motion takes on a whole new dynamic. Certainly changes the possibilities of 3rd and short and goal line. The only real counter to a huge FB is another huge body or numbers--either way the short pass with Cook/Austin comes into play--it becomes a guessing game for opponents' defenses

    A six foot eight inch Columbo on the offensive line? Pretty cool. Coach 'em up Bodreau.
