On average, the defensive ends (DE) are the lightest linemen. They need speed more than mass. That applies to both college and the pros. You will get an occasional DE that weighs a lot more than average. They are usually on 3-4 defensive schemes. These guys don't really meet the definition of defensive end, as the outside linebacker (OLB) performs their function (outside contain).

How big will NFL offensive linemen be in 20 years?

In terms of NFL, most likely bigger, linemen are getting bigger on average. No person could survive on the offensive line in major college football or NFL at 270 lbs. In college, if the spread offense gets used more and more, then smaller, coaches in that system like lighter linemen, not many over or at 300lbs in say Rich Rod's scheme.

How heavy are the football players on the offensive line?

Depending on the level you're asking about, the weight of offensive linemen can vary quite a bit. At highschool, a team with an average offensive line weight of 260 or 270 is considered enormous. That being said, highschool linemen can compete at weight as low as 180 and 200 to as high as 380. In D-1 college football, offensive linemen frequently weigh 300 pounds. 270 and 280 pounds are also somewhat common, but are generally considered a bit undersized whereas linemen weighing over 350 are pretty rare. In the NFL, an undersized lineman can be 6-3, 280 pounds. At the highest level of competition, nearly all offensive linemen weigh over 300 and stand near or above 6-5, Offensive linemen weighing over 350 pounds are becoming a common sight in the NFL.
