Possibly the grittiest, toughest QB in the game, Ben Roethlisberger combines a potent aerial attack with his substantial 6’5”, 240-pound frame—defensive players may as well be taking down a moose or some other hopelessly large animal when they look to sack Big Ben. Not mobile in the conventional sense, Roethlisberger is a master of shaking off hits and extending plays, frustrating defenses by turning plays that look like sure losses into first-down conversions. Earlier in his career, he recorded a 410-pound bench press and a 316-pound power clean—just monstrous numbers for his position on the field.
