The weight of offensive linemen will NOT continue to grow. They have tried to get bigger and bigger, but they have found their effectiveness has gone down, and their injuries have gone up. It will slowly go down in the next couple years and return to 250-270. I think what the NFL can do as of right now is have a FREE program set up after these players retire so they can find out to stay healty and lose weight effectively. BTW, offensive linemen are EXTREMELY skilled and EXTREMELY smart. And probably the people who are the best in shape(except for the weight).

I disagree...even if lineman "got the point where they utilized only size and not skill," these guys ARE NOT THE SKILL POSITIONS...QB's, RB's, WR's, TE's, CB,'s LB's, and DB's all must be EXTREMELY talented to play...no way they can utilize size over skill.
