You're referring to height, right? See some of the premier WDE's in the NFL and their height.

Hey, who do you pick in that scenario, btw?


Neal. Height doesn't matter that much. Besides Neal isn't short in any sense or measure.

He's the same size at the same position as Carl Lawson. Lawson is Rivals 2nd ranked overall.



Oh, boy...you just did yourself in with this one.

First off, Lawson is #4 overall, and he's listed at 6'2". My post about Neal's height said that he'd be a 5-star if he was 6'2". Neal is listed at 6'1".

Thanks for proving my point, bud.

5'10 1/2 is short for a DE.

Only one shorter I can think of with more potential was Holliday. JMO

Neal is under 6' now? When did this happen?

I won't ask for links...I'm going on their listed heights...what Rivals lists, in this particular case.

I heard that Lawson is really 6'3", btw.

I'd give you one if I knew where it was. Think it was a chat on 247. Im sure others here can back that up.

Go back and read the whole thing...I was mocking Rivals when I made the height comment, and than someone said that Lawson and Neal are the same height, which isn't true.

I'm backing Neal in this...not Lawson or Rivals...or Sickels...or Bama...or BO.

I personally feel like Neal is getting nabbed a 4th or 5th star, which I'm sure he personally would've liked to receive, due to him not being an inch or two taller.

He was the best WDE at every camp he went to...it's too bad his efforts didn't pay off for him like they should've.

He's a Tiger...I want his efforts to pay off, damnit!

By the way, I'm really glad that our boy isn't going to Bama...he looks like a scary JACK.

3 years from now when he's tearing it up for LSU, you're going to be talking about how great of a player he is. Not saying he's too short.

He and Dumerville were the two I was primarily thinking of earlier when I mentioned that he's the same height as some of the premier pass rusher's in the NFL.

I'm not complaining about a thing. He has a lot of potential. I was just commenting on why he wasnt a 4 star and who I would pick on a play ground.

I love it, but I gotta admit its a little high...

no way he gets a 4th star if he stayed committed to LA Tech
