At 6-foot-9, 367 pounds, University of Kentucky freshman offensive tackle Nick Lewis is a mountain of a man on the front line for the Cats. But is he the biggest man in the Southeastern Conference?

Yes, and a look at every SEC roster proves it.

At 367, only teammate Marquan McCall outweighs him in the SEC — by 1 pound. McCall is 6 inches shorter.

At 6-9, only one other SEC player matches Lewis in height — Arkansas offensive lineman Dalton Wagner, who weighs a mere 302.

Here’s a look around the conference at the SEC’s biggest men:

Most 300-pound guys: Georgia has 24 of them, the most of any team. Kentucky is tied for fourth in 300-pound men with 22.

Most giants 6-6 and up: Kentucky has 13 of them, one more than Georgia.

Fewest 300-pound guys: Arkansas has only 12 guys that top 300.

Something in common: 17 of the 28 biggest and tallest are freshmen or redshirt freshmen.

Where’s the beef? Most programs’ 300-pound men patrol the offensive line, but a number are also defensive linemen. Kentucky, for example, has 16 of its 22 300-pounders on the offensive side.
