Didn't we draft some 6'6" player in the 2002 draft? I think in the 6th round.
He was featured on Hard Knocks.
I was hoping he would be able to help us, but even with his height advantage, he wasn't able to make the team.
But to an extent, it just doesn't make sense ... when we used to play in the playground, we'd simply throw the ball high, and the tallest kid would come down with it?
Physics still applies. Even if Deveren Johnson can't run routes, heck, throw some jump balls to him ... he's got at least 6-8" inches over the CB's.
