On average, the defensive ends (DE) are the lightest linemen. They need speed more than mass. That applies to both college and the pros. You will get an occasional DE that weighs a lot more than average. They are usually on 3-4 defensive schemes. These guys don't really meet the definition of defensive end, as the outside linebacker (OLB) performs their function (outside contain).
