Obviously if he's available at our 6th or 7th pick in the draft maybe you swing for the fences but it would seem foolish with the amount of talent in this draft to fixate because someone is tall.
Exactly, nothing wrong with mixing a few big guys in there but nobody wins anything with a team of big slow grinders.
