    I think he'll be better against slot receivers than big TEs. Sure he has the athleticism to keep up with TEs. But, a 8 or 9 inch height difference is extreme. When you add in arm length, differences you are talking about well over a foot. His jumping ability will help, but he will still be at a big disadvantage. I don't think I agree with your logic.

    That said, I really like the kid and hope he stays healthy and sees the field a lot this year.

    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
