Good to see a coach in nice shoes and not “style nike’s“.

Sam Mills, London Fletcher and Mike Singletary were all 5'10" or shorter. Shorter LB's generally change direction quicker than tall ones. The new offences and the defensives built to stop them are more interested in speed and quickness.

They are fine if you’re in college. Or high school. Or middle school.

Adults in big boy jobs wear professional attire.

Olajubutu did just fine - LB is one position that height is probably least important.  Dre also has one foot back and one well forward.  I think he is likely 2 inches taller than he appears in that photo.

Everyone has an opinion.
He's too tall,
He's not tall enough.
He's to heavy.
He's to light.
He's not fast enough.

Its more about head and heart than size or speed.

Camera angle is messing with you, he is much bigger than CCM but doesn’t look it in that picture.

I say he is in the 6'0 range.  But really doesn't matter as much as speed, athleticism and getting to the football.

Yep. It just seems like nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got something to say.  But nothing comes out when they move their lips.  Just a bunch of gibberish.  And they all act like they are taller than Dre.

Lol, professional attire in many big boy jobs consists of Wranglers, a Cinch or Ariat shirt, and boots.  And, if the meeting is really important, the boots will be ostrich, caymen, or gator.

So a 5'7, 147 pounder with a great outlook can play linebacker just like Dick Butkus?

Never said size was not important.
But  size and speed alone do not make a great player.
We have seen many good or great players who did not look the part.

We have seen many good or great players who did not look the part.

Big difference between "also" important and "more" important. A good test is if you take something to the extreme, which is more important. Often you have to go somewhat extreme because it is easy for people to not even realize that they are making certain assumptions in the first place.

I.e. Sure, I'd take a 5'10 220 LB who runs a 4.9 but is smart, and plays very hard and works very hard over a 6'2 240 LB who runs a 4.6 forty but barely knows the playbook and doesn't watch film, and just isn't all that passionate about the sport. However, if you can run a sub 6 second forty, you are already faster than 90% of the general population, much less a sub 5 second forty. Being 5'10 220 is already way more fit and way stronger as well.

I always thought Randy Moss was a black guy and now all this time I find out he's a short, balding, old white guy.  It doesn't matter I guess, he was the fastest player on the field at one time and the best at catching the one handed deep balls for the touchdown.

Did you ever see that special on his measurables?  Arguably one of the best athletes that ever graced the planet, but apparently he never had the brains to tap into it to anywhere NEAR what his potential could have been.  Take his athleticism and pair it with Jerry Rice's work ethic and football IQ, and we'd probably be talking about his as the best NFL player of all time right about now.

I just can't believe he's coming back to college to use his remaining eligibility with us!  That's more exciting than Gruden coming to coach.   ;D 8)

Sports is all about doing the best with what you’ve been given.

I’d say Moss did pretty well.
