There seems to be a general belief out there that Cissoko cannot be a lock-down corner thanks to a height deficiency. In other words, he won't be great because he is short.
Yet of the 7 cornerbacks on the Pro Bowl rosters for this year, 5 (Winfield, Samuel, Barber, Finnegan, and Revis) are under 6 feet tall. Of those 5, Revis is the tallest at an imposing 5'11.
So my question: why are people so convinced that height is the determining factor for a cornerback's success?
