I remember watching some Louisville games and just being amazed at the motor on this guy. Alot of people compares him to Dwight Freeny.
If I remember right...we didn't draft him because he was too short.
This is why we don't get these guys. We are way too freaking ridiculously absorbed in their height-weight attributes over whether or not the guys can actually freaking play.
It's asinine and infuriating because based on McCloughlan's history, he'd pass up on a guy like Eric Norwood or Brandon Graham -- two great pass-rushers in this upcoming draft -- just because of an inch or two in height. Absurd.
To be fair, isn't Parys Haralson barely 6-0 tall?
According to NFL.com and Yahoo Sports, Haralson is indeed 6 feet tall. And we drafted Haralson in the 5th round (7th pick) in 2006 whereas Dumervil was drafted in the 4th round (29th pick).
