    6'0+ might be ideal but 5'10" is definitely not too short to play CB in the NFL. There is vitually no real disavantage if the 5'10 guy has long arms and a good vert. As long as he is willing to be physical height won't really be an issue.

    I'm only 5'10 and I had no problem guarding the bigger taller WR's in college. The shifty ones that were quick were the hardest to guard tightly! Being tall is only an advantage when the ball is placed perfectly! Otherwise its all about timing your jump just right!

    That's the only reason I was able to play at 5'8". Except I was a DB and could stick on pretty much any receiver, frustrated a lot of guys haha. Played some OLB too.

    Verner is an amazing Nickel back, he played there when we went 9-7 and trashed the Ravens at home. I like him playing where he is best over being forced to play full time corner

    Used to be all CB's we're 5'8"- 5'11"

    all the taller guys wound up at WR back then, now though we see CB's 6'3" just trying to keep up with all these TE sized WR's 6'4" and taller.
