I agree but everything is relative. Players may be all bigger, but it is still LESS of a disadvantage to be a bit smaller at Center, where vision and quick changes of direction are the most important factors in success.

I also took the eras into account. So whereas Doug Risebrough at 5'11 and 185 lbs would be smallish today, I did not list him as small in 1976.
