You're not rubbing anything or being a pompous a-hole, you're just blinded by your own over-analysis and faulty reasoning.

You took the average weight for the top ten prospects over the past five years and compared that to the average NFL weight. Then you determined that because the NFL weight was more than the combine average for those prospects, the prospects must have gained that weight after entering the league.

I mean, can you really not see all of the assumptions and illogical conclusions involved in stating something like that as a 'fact'?
