A soon-to-be professional NFL offensive tackle gained close to 10 pound in a buffet eating contest.
Old Dominion offensive tackle Nick Saldiveri and four other offensive linemen took part in an all-you-can-meat buffet contest. Whoever gained the most weight from the competition would be deemed the winner.
Olu Oluwatimi (Michigan Wolverines), Jaelyn Duncan (Maryland), Peter Skoronski (Northwestern) and Steve Avila (TCU) were the other four competitors.
In a video posted by the FOX Sports NFL Twitter account, you can see the players weighing themselves, followed by clips of them enjoying delicious meat-based meals. The five players weigh themselves at the end again to reveal how much weight they gained from the all buffet.

The winner wound up being Saldiveri. He gained 9.5 pounds (317.4 to 326.9) from the special all-you-can-meat eating contest, and Skoronski was second with 6.7 pounds gained.
Duncan finished third with six pounds gained, and Oluwatimi added five more. Avila didn’t gain a single pound after weighing himself.
Skoronski is widely regarded as the best offensive line prospect in a 2023 draft class headlined by quarterbacks Bryce Young (Alabama), C.J. Stroud (Ohio State), Anthony Richardson (Florida), Will Levis (Kentucky) and outside linebacker Will Anderson Jr. (Alabama).
Ohio State’s Paris Johnson Jr., Tennesse’s Darnell Wright, Georgia’s Broderick Jones and Oklahoma’s Anton Harrison are among the other top-ranked offensive tackles that many project to go in round one.
Nine of the 32 first-round picks in last year’s draft were offensive linemen: Ikem Ekwonu (Carolina Panthers), Evan Neal (New York Giants), Charles Cross (Seattle Seahawks), Kenyon Green (Houston Texans), Zion Johnson (Los Angeles Chargers), Trevor Penning (New Orleans Saints), Tyler Smith (Dallas Cowboys), Tyler Linderbaum (Baltimore Ravens) and Cole Strange (New England Patriots).WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
