We'd use him in the slot, ideally b/c of his first-step quickness and blazing speed. Then we'd use Cooper's 6'2" 195 frame out wide on the bigger WR's that, until Brock, were always out-jumping and towering over (or through) our tiny CB's. Oh wait...never mind.
No, on a serious note, the height certainly helps a ton but technique can be even more critical...why is Brock (5'10" 197) successful? He stays in the hip pocket of the WR, gets his head turned around and plays the BALL (not the receiver's body language). Also, he is good at jumping, timing and making a play on the ball at it's high-point and fights for it through the entirety of the play. These are all issues for Brown and Rogers (and Culliver/Whitner) at time...along with overall quickness and speed.
