D.J. Fluker -- the 11th overall pick in the NFL Draft -- is 6'6" and 340 pounds ... which is why it's pretty damn shocking that he was forced to sleep in a TWIN SIZE BED during his college career!!

We shot the 22-year-old offensive lineman on his way into the draft in NYC last night -- right before he was selected by the S.D. Chargers -- when Fluker told us that giants like him were treated just like everyone else when it came to dorm living at the University of Alabama.

For the record, a standard twin mattress is 75 inches long ... Fluker is 78 inches long. 

D.J. won't have any bed problems any more ... he'll become a multi-millionaire when he officially signs his contract -- he can buy any bed he wants.

"Fluker told us that giants like him were treated just like everyone else when it came to dorm living at the University of Alabama." This is a big lie. TMZ should fact-check their stories. Football players live in Bryant Hall, a complex with its own academic center. In the luxurious dormitory area of Bryant Hall, each player has a private carpeted bedroom (with extra-long 54x80" bed) and a shared bathroom, living room and full-kitchen. In other words, Alabama's football players are NOT treated like other students at the University of Alabama! Never have been! Was this story written by fat Mike?
