There is not an average weight, per se, of a NFL player. Rather, there is an ideal weight for each position. There is a lot more than that, but the NFL Draft reports do a great job of comparing the current crop of NFL prospects. The lists is compiled by numerous scouts and analysts, and the majority of the official results are derived annually at the NFL Combine.

The "average" or tiers of prospects are classified into "measurables" like weight, height, strength, speed, agility, football IQ and crazy things like medical history and so forth. Then there are "un-measurables", like drive and determination. It shows that "averages" in the NFL are really only statistics to begin an evaluation. And like any investment's prospectus, the info isn't always worth the paper its printed on, so there is no guarantee.
