Watch A 317-Pound NFL Player Dunk On A Regulation Hoop Like Gravity Doesn't Exist

The man can jump.

Lane Johnson is an offensive lineman for the Philadelphia Eagles of the NFL. That's a position that by nature requires you to be an enormous human being, and unsurprisingly, he's 6-foot-6 and weighs 317 pounds.

Now, as tall as he is, you'd think a man of his size would have a relatively tough time battling the natural effects of gravity compared to smaller, more "nimble" athletes. That is to say — at first glance, he doesn't look like the kind of guy that can jump very high.

Well, apparently the dude can elevate just fine, because he recently posted a video to his Twitter that shows him dunking on a regulation hoop — that's 10 feet above the ground — in glorious slow motion.

Don't judge a book by its cover, right?


Watch Johnson jam better than you could ever hope to:
