Watch: 410-pound LaQuan McGowan plays tight end for Baylor

Saturday March 21st, 2015

Remember 410-pound LaQuan McGowan, Baylor's reserve offensive guard who caught an 18-yard touchdown pass as a tight end in the Cotton Bowl vs. Michigan State?

Baylor coach Art Briles said earlier this month that McGowan, a 6'7" redshirt senior, would play tight end or slot receiver during spring practices. And he wasn't kidding.

Imagine being the guy who has to try and take him down. Baylor just might've figured out its secret weapon for next season.
