But as I pointed out, you don't have to be over 6'0 to play CB wellin this league. If a 6'0 CB has an 6" vertical advantage over a 6'4 WR, you don't have a problem.
Wait a minute, I thought we wanted some players that could tackle....

First original thought you have had since the beginning of the conversation. Now to you a 6ft cornerback may not be a tall cornerback. But to me a 6'0ft CB is taller than any starting Saints CB that we have had in the past 3 to 4 seasons so you'll forgive me if I see a distinct difference between Jabari Greer and Keenan Lewis, and you don't!!!!

When the cornerbacks in question Asomugha ( 6'2) Cox (6'1) go above what you deem as not tall, or does tall start at 6'3 now for the sake of you winning the argument!!!!

I hate to cut in on you two lovebirds, but AC, you originally posted Cox as being 6'0, which probably lead to Danno's argument that you only listed one CB (Asomugha) who was above 6'0 tall.

Not that it probably makes any difference, but I thought I'd bring that to your attention.

Ah...

...I'm on-call at the office and I'm reading the proverbial 'bigger is better' debate this late night...

...we should bring on Ron Jeremy and a panel of "experts" to discuss the benefits of how a bigger "cornerback" would bring more pleasure to Saints Fans!!!

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Oklahoma T Lane Johnson is visiting the Saints on Tuesday.

The team has a huge void at left tackle, but without a second-round pick it could be tough to move up and secure a top three tackle. A more viable solution could be to trade in the opposite direction and possibly target Terron Armstead or Dallas Thomas.
