1) I have nothing on Yoshua Nijiman – does he compare to Calais Campbell of the Arizona Cardinals, formerly Miami Hurricanes? He was about the same size and came on late in his Hurricane career and has become a star in the NFL.

Chris Coleman: Both guys are about 6-7, but beyond that you really can’t compare them. When Calais Campbell signed with Miami, he was listed at 225. He eventually grew to be listed at 6-8, 300 in the NFL.

On the other hand, Yoshua Nijman enrolled at Virginia Tech at the same height of 6-7, but weighing in at a whopping 277. Nijman is a full 50 pounds bigger than Campbell was when he signed with Miami, and that makes it very difficult to compare the two. How much weight will Nijman add? Will he be able to retain his quickness and play end at Tech? Is he even quick enough to play end right now?
