260

In the very early days of football it was rare to see a lineman that weighed over 250 pounds. But as training regiments became more sophisticated the weights have risen. Hall of Fame offensive guard Gene Upshaw, who played between 1967-1981, weighed 255 pounds. Hall of Fame defensive end Gino Marchetti, who played between 1952-1966, weighed 245 pounds. Today's linemen almost always weigh at least 280 pounds and many weigh over 300 pounds.

Plus steroids play a large part in the drastic weight increase in today's linemen.

How heavy are the football players on the offensive line?

Depending on the level you're asking about, the weight of offensive linemen can vary quite a bit. At highschool, a team with an average offensive line weight of 260 or 270 is considered enormous. That being said, highschool linemen can compete at weight as low as 180 and 200 to as high as 380. In D-1 college football, offensive linemen frequently weigh 300 pounds. 270 and 280 pounds are also somewhat common, but are generally considered a bit undersized whereas linemen weighing over 350 are pretty rare. In the NFL, an undersized lineman can be 6-3, 280 pounds. At the highest level of competition, nearly all offensive linemen weigh over 300 and stand near or above 6-5, Offensive linemen weighing over 350 pounds are becoming a common sight in the NFL. I hope that answers your question
