That was my thought. Too much bulk might slow him down. Pumping iron to this extent has never been necessary for QBs. It makes me wonder--and it is pure speculation--if he enjoys being a gym rat too much and doesn't enjoy the other parts of being a QB, namely studying and film.
I'm 44 years old, recently added 15 pounds of muscle and pr'd my adult 40 time at 4.54. My legs feel stronger and faster with my new frame and I'm see less injuries. To say it'll slow him down is absolute hogwash and not how the body works.

Now, if he were running an ultra marathon, you'd have a point.

He ran 60 yards (probably more if you count the cutback.) As I've said there is a difference between 40 yard dash speed and sprinter speed.

Ground can be covered up on Kyler cause he doesnt have great stride length. However, for 40 yards or so he's special.
This time a thousand. They rarely train 60 or 80 yard sprints. They are rare in the NFL.

Let's not forget this guy is one of the fastest in the NFL at 6'4" 230lbs and hasn't missed a game yet.

God dang haha how in world do u get that jacked without what Boston did lol... ugh
I don't think Boston had that large of a frame...he was more medium thickness... Definitely didn't have as broad of shoulders as DK. Most of his bulk was artificial....the fat face was the easiest giveaway, just like Bonds.

Sometimes the chin is the biggest giveaway. I don't know if this is the same picture, its the only non-bearded one I could find. But I remember the very first thing I thought when I first saw David Johnson's face was 'Dam dude, just don't get caught.'

Joe Burrow needs to get on that program. Met him last night at my golf club (he was there for a friends wedding) and I couldn't believe how skinny he is. He is rail thin.

Bulking up for a QB is not always a good thing

So many throws require finesse and touch and IMO you lose some of that when you are too built

This is not correct. If you stretch and work on mobility, for the most part, bulk doesn't matter. Arnold type of body building and strongmen like Thor, who many consider the strongest person to ever live, are the exceptions. And still Thor is insanely agile for his mammoth size. Go to the 1:30 mark here to see.

Here is Mat Fraser. He is 5'8" and 210lbs. He also happens to the most versatile athlete in Crossfit and 5 times fittest man on earth.

Watch how he smokes the best of the best with a gymnastics movement that is 100% finesse!

Those have absolutely nothing to do with playing QB.
