As for drafting Hammer, he was 2" smaller when he was picked, then had a growth spurt and filled out. If Snow (or Klatt) knew he was gonna be a stud, they would have taken him where they took Ness instead of our 2nd round two pick, #53 overall. A lot of teams passed over Hammer, we got lucky he was still there.
