        Well, there's at least 10 pro football players that I'm taller than.

            Based on my height and weight, I would play QB.

                Look at Osweiler gangling around up there.

                What a freak.

                  I tend to take a look at the height, weight, and speed of WRs, mainly because my son is playing that position. He's a senior now in high school, and he's 6'1", 170. He's probably stopped growing height wise. Once the season is over he'll start to train for next year, with the goal of getting to a good 180-185. He put on 15 pounds last offseason, and this offseason the program will be even more aggressive. I timed him at 4.60 in the 40 a couple weeks ago. That is a hand time though, but still pretty fast. Oh, I've come to find out something that I've always thought. Most reported high school kid's insane 40 times are bogus. And some of their height and weights are bogus too. A lot of the guys at the NFL combine run a slower 40 time than their reported high school times. That's not just the linemen, who put on a lot of weight at the college level, but the skill position guys too.

                    I love linear regression analysis. So easy to just look at color trends.

                              I'm a TE/DE

                              My son's playing NT and LG now ,but I think he'll wind up being a LT... he's 5'5" 145 with a size 11 shoe, at age 11.

                              He plays inside because he's playing on a 7th-8th grade team in 5th grade. Once he gets to play with kids his own age he'll beast.
