Get this, even at 6'4", 270lbs... Ballard still anchored his High School's 4x400 and 4x200 relay teams which qualified for the state championship meet. Crazy for a guy his size.
Just reading over his wikipedia page (I know nothing about Ballard): Christian Ballard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaDisclaimer: I'm an idiot.

Wonder if this is more of a techincality than anything. I don't really like him as much at DT, unless of course they plan on using him in more of a hybrid role like they did with Robison in the nickel.
Allen, K-Dub, Ballard and Robison would be a nice lineup.

Love him on the D-line.
The guy has beast potential. So much speed and dominate pass-rush potential with that line.
I mean, in this pass heavy division, this can work really well.
