    Antonio Bryant had 1499 yards
    Desean Jackson over 1300
    Kendall Wright, TY Hilton, J.Edelman had over 1000

    Those are the 5 of the 23 WRs who broke 1000 yards last year who are under 6 foot

    There's nothing wrong with a slot receiver that's under 6'0. Just don't take one earlier than the 2nd round.

    In a #1 receiver you can build your passing game around, I'm looking for 6'4 225 ~4.47 40, 34 inch arms and a 38 inch vertical.

    As a comparison, Mike Evans is 6'5 230, ran a 4.53 (same time as Brandon Marshall) has 35 1/8 inch arms and has a 37 inch vertical.

    Or a receiver that has a longer than average wingspan, see Chris Chambers. I remember telling my brother once that he was 5'11 and he even bet me money that he wasn't. Sometimes it's not how big you are but how big you play. Now, when you have a 6'5 receiver that plays as big or bigger than that: that's a find.

    I'm more concerned with whether they are football players and whether they can score touchdowns than height.

    Brandin Cooks is a better prospect coming out than Desean Jackson.
    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.

    I swore Chris Chambers was like 6'4 when I was younger. I was shocked when I found out he was 5"11. Some people just play bigger.

    We would have to know the total amount of starting WRs in the league that are under 6' tall. If the majority are over 6' tall, then of course the numbers are going to look like you don't want a WR under 6'.
