Julius "Fluff"

Ray Lewis came into the NFL at 235.

Once upon a time, Ray Lewis came into the league as an "undersized" linebacker at about 235 pounds. Then he changed his body, bulking up to about 250 pounds for a good stretch of time. Last year, he got up 260. He was very stout at that weight, but Lewis struggled a bit in coverage and on nickel downs. Unlike a lot of star veterans, the Ravens linebacker is not delusional about his game. He saw the flaws on tape, and thought losing weight would help. Little known fact: he also got his body fat percentage down to five percent -- unheard of for a man his size. The early returns, including his play against the Bengals, have been outstanding.
