oh I didn't know he was so short. But Bowman is 6'0 and Willis 6'1. I think he could if he wanted.
i am not 100% sure but werent his best yrs spent in a 3-4? he's a guy who plays well w/ leverage...robert mathis and freeney i think are short too
actually freeney is a FA too but he's rumored to go to denver to replace dumervil when they cut him
You bring up a good point with this. Rushing the passer is all about leverage. I guess the only reason height would be a detractor is if he was asked to drop into a zone often. James Harrison is only 6' and he's a hell of an OLB.
