See? You can notice this in game films. He's not just a fat guy with a gut. He's big, wide, massive.
Our strength coaches should have a field day with him as they get to work with him full time.

If this kid does his work after hours and does all his film study and stays focused and in shape, he could be the next Joel Steed or Casey Hampton. He has the perfect build to be a 3-4 NT. He needs to eat up blockers and clog the middle!!! Looking forward to seeing him play.....all though I'm sure he won't start year 1.
Ta'Amu has should have no problem with effort, film study, or learning this position. He is in decent shape already and is quick for a NT. He plays hard and seems to have his head on straight.
He does need technique work, and he needs to cover up some stiffness then prevents him from moving laterally as fluidly as Casey Hampton does. John Mitchell will enjoy this guy and he should contribute this year, and probably be the starter next season. I like his personality. Very engaging.
Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
If Lebeau doesn't start this dude day 1 at NT....then this kid needs to be checked for having no brains, or Lebeau needs sent to the old folks home for being senile.
