Carolina Panthers star Christian McCaffrey looks insanely big these days.

The running back out of Stanford went viral on Twitter Tuesday after the Panthers tweeted out a photo of him going through drills. (RELATED: Arizona Cardinals Select Kyler Murray First Overall In The NFL Draft)

He looks like he’s packed on an absurd amount of muscle weight. Take a look below:

Did the Panthers move McCaffrey to safety or linebacker and just not tell anybody? For comparison, here is a photo of him during his days at Stanford.

He’s still clearly athletic, but he didn’t look like a linebacker or safety roaming the secondary.

Is he now the biggest running back in the league? I can’t say for sure, but he has to be in the conversation, right?

Imagine being a linebacker or cornerback and seeing McCaffery busting into the second level. He’s probably bigger than the vast majority of guys on defense at this point outside the offensive line. Just absurd.

Again, look at the difference between his college days and now.

Best of luck to defenders who want to crash the hole when he’s barreling through it. The dude looks ready to send people to the afterlife.
