i wonder if the colts will try putting him in a different position if he's got the speed. it'd be quite a difference in covering d3 wr's to d1 wr's.

either way congrats to him.

I think they would have to. There has never been a CB that tall in the NFL for good reason. You just can't flip your hips quick enough with that kind of length. There are guys like Richard Sherman who is listed at 6-3. I'm guessing he is the tallest Corner in the league. Guys like Sherman who can cover with that kind of size are invaluable to their team in that they have the length to match up with the taller receivers that you are seeing more of in the league. A kid 6-5 that's put into a good strength and nutrition program might have a frame that enough good weight could be added to make a 240 lb OLB and still retain his present speed.
