See all the six foot plus guys in there? Oh yeah exactly one. See a lineup of guys mostly 5'5-5'10? Yup.

I'd also add that other than Wolf none of these guys are there actual listed height...I'm 5'10" and I look down on most of them...Most these guys I have met, spoke to, stood next to for extend time, and most are at least 2 inches shorter than you have them listed if not 4 inches...Cutler is barely pushing 5'06"...
