Ok, so it doesn’t really fit in the secondary, but at least there aren’t any midgets. Robinson and Harley are 6'2", with 6 others atleast 6 feet tall.

So overall it didn’t take long for Jimbo and Co to turn this team around in the speed and size department. It’s going to be a good time watching this team mature. I'd like to know your thoughts on if you think this is a good thing.
