The following are 6'3''- 6' 5'': Iupati, Hutchinson, Bruce Matthews, Carl Nicks, Randle Mcdaniel, LArry Allen, Mike Munchak, Gene Upshaw and the list goes on.
Harbaugh discusses Boone's height with Maiocco; Sees no problem with it: http://www.csnbayarea.com/pages/ninersvideo?PID=hXWM2-QssmDjEcTP__3dTOQ3DcilSZqbYEyrhi
Interesting that this happened to be addressed just now.
Seems like Harbaugh is fully intent on playing Boone if he deems him the best at the spot. We'll see what happens.
I'm all for it. If the coaches like what they see, hell, why not? I mean we turned a DE into a pro bowl FB in one year....Tackle to Guard is easier probably.
I was just curious to see how tall the better guards in the league were. I posted it for others to see.
