Oakland edge Calhoun has bulked up for 2017
- Raiders edge defender Shilique Calhoun is about 20 pounds heavier than he was in 2016 according to Eddie Paskal on Raiders.com. Oakland drafted Calhoun in the third round in 2016.
- Calhoun played 172 snaps in 2016 before a knee injury ended his rookie season. His overall PFF grade of 46.8 ranked 133rd out of 155 edge defenders.
- Calhoun had one sack, two QB hits, and one hurry in 68 pass-rush snaps in 2016. The added weight might improve his run defense, as he made only two stops (plays graded as a “loss” for the offense) in 75 snaps against the run.
