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).

They are actually pretty even though I would give the slight edge to Williams because Mario is more a run stopper too. Mario had 14, 12 and 2 sacks so far in his 3rd season. And Williams has higher tackle # per year. Elvis 12, 5 and so far 10 sacks. Elvis played DE his first two years but because of the move to the 3-4 D, he is LB/DE and it looks like it is a great move for him as he may or may not be rushing the passer on every down and that helps him so far.
Though for where each was drafted, Elvis is "doing better" than Mario.
