Comparing a few weights

The roster that UW unveiled prior to spring ball includes updated measurements for all players.

As always, a few of the players show some significant differences. Many, as might be expected, are those in their first full year in the program and having concluded their first off-season winter program. Among those who made big leaps are LB Scott Laywer (from 198 to 220), WR Joshua Perkins (from 197 to 213) and LB Thomas Tutogi (from 255 to 244).

Offensive linemen are also always interesting to watch. A couple gained a little weight including the possible new LT Micah Hatchie, who went from 285 to 299. But most seemed to lose a few, such as Drew Schaefer (from 301 to 287).

Also of note is that a couple of defensive guys who maybe needed to get bigger to take on new roles appear to have done so — LB John Timu going from 220 to 236, and Taz Stevenson (who is moving from safety to OLB) going from 203 to 215.

Here’s a list of players who made the biggest jumps in one direction or the other on the official roster:

FB Jonathan Amosa, from 230 to 239
OL James Atoe, from 337 to 332
OL Dexter Charles from 293 to 287
CB Greg Ducre, from 173 to 180
S Nate Fellner, from 201 to 218

WR Joshua Perkins, from 197 to 213
CB Marcus Peters, from 185 to 195
OL Colin Porter, from 322 to 299
