Kelly ran through a number of players who made significant jumps on the scale and in the weight room this offseason. They were:
Mark Harrell up 19 pounds to 305
Conor Hanratty up 10 pounds to 309
Chase Hounshell up 20 pounds to 275 (21 reps at 225 on the bench press)
Ben Councell up 16 pounds to 248 (19 reps at 225)
Jarrett Grace up 13 pounds to 248 (from 9 reps at 225 to over 22 during the offseason)
Steve Elmer is up to 317 pounds.
Elijah Shumate is up to 213 pounds and will be playing safety.
Ben Koyack is up to 261 pounds which makes him the heaviest tight end on the roster (two pounds heavier than Niklas).
Chris Brown is up to 192 pounds, 20 pounds heavier than he was last year.
George Atkinson III weighs 210 pounds. Kelly said he went from 5 reps of 225 pound to 19 reps this spring. Not exactly clear when he was at five reps.
Wow, that's really bad for GAIII. Maybe that's shedding some light into A. Why he didn't play as much last year and B. Why he's not running track this year.
Nice gains by GA3... Cierre Wood put up 16 reps at the Combine.

5 Time POTW & 2 Time WPOTW Winner
Now if we could only get him to become a running back as good as Cierre. I don't see it in his future.
Attended: Michigan @ ND 2010 Southern Cal @ ND 2011 Stanford @ ND 2012 BCS National Title Game vs. Alabama-Jan 7, 2013 ND @ Air Force 2013
I thought BK said GAIII was up to 217. He was around 210 last season?
I'm up to 320 but, it's not in shape type of weight.
2 time POTW winner on some dates I can't remember from 2yrs ago at BNG,
POTW: 1/3/11- 1/9/11, 6/20/11-6/26/11
Grace at 248 will be big. He's run-stuffing ILB size now.
Shumate at 213 is going to hurt people.
Love to hear Elmer is at 317 already. The kid is going to be awesome.
Brown needed 20 lbs. Can't just run the 9-route forever.. or can he? (Mike Wallace)
