Here are some notes from the media session held by San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio on Thursday:A lot of NFL teams dinged Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson for being 5-foot-11. He wasn't drafted until the third round because of his height -- despite possessing all the other high-caliber NFL quarterbacking qualities. However, Fangio thinks Wilson's stature is not a detriment."His lack of height actually helps him, I think, in that he's less of a target to get to," Fangio said.
