First of all, congratulations!
Second of all, you're a lying mother****er.
There's no way you can't notice that. You're probably more fit, lighter, probably stronger unless you lost the weight due to illness (in which case, I rescind the congrats...).
I really don't like it when teams ask players to put on or lose weight, and I dislike how people frequently say "well we'll have the guy put on/lose 15+ pounds" like it's nothing. The player is at the weight that he chose and will undoubtedly play the most enthusiastically at -- a 10 pound correction isn't that bad, but anything beyond that and you're turning him into another player. Only in the latest rounds of the draft should you try something like that, or in extreme cases where a player is clearly not physically fit (like Terrance Cody's 30 pound weight loss for the Ravens).
But Kruger is very fit. And he probably can put on 30 pounds, but why not get a guy who's already there rather than trusting Kruger can gain 30 pounds and play the same?
