I've been back and forth on that as to who they will value more. While height is nice, I see Tavon as a bit of a project and more so Trenton, at least in the pass rush department. I don't want to end up with a Taco Charleton just because he is a few inches taller than the guy with better production.

Length references wingspan as well as height. Dallas's guys all had long arms as well as being proportionately lean. If Eberflus brings that philosophy over, I'd imagine he's going to be looking for tall, lean, long armed DTs and DEs. That's why Rasheem Green is a player I think they'll target. He's tall, has a big wingspan, definitely an athlete for his size, young yet still productive (had 10 sacks for USC last year) and could play the DE or DT position.

Now he is a Jet. Traded for a 7th round pick. This I don't get.
