Dave, you see the size of Jamar Taylor for a corner? He isn't the tallest we have had, but this guy is built thick and he is very agile to go with it.
He's the same height as almost every corner Jeff Ireland has signed or drafted. 5'11.
Will Davis, Marshall, Vontae, Carroll, Patterson, Wilson, Grimes are all 5'11 or under.
Sean Smith is the only CB I remember getting that was over 6 feet.
I was excited that we drafted Sean Smith and was thinking that Parcells was going to reshape the way the NFL looks at cornerbacks. After seeing him struggle with the smaller and faster receivers, now we see why this size is blueprint for cornerbacks.
