I'm guessing that if you're a Division I football player, you're probably used to being the biggest person in most rooms you enter. After all, there aren't too many people in the world who are 6'5" or 6'6". Things are different with Jack Dreyer. At six-foot-eight, he's also the biggest person in most football locker rooms he'll ever enter, including Stanford's. In fact, I don't think I'm going too far out a limb in guessing that he's probably the tallest player in Stanford football history.
But how does that height translate on the football field? One look at Dreyer's game film and the answer is pretty simple: it doesn't hurt being the biggest guy out there. He is physically dominant, often bull rushing defenders five or ten yards out of the play before driving them into the turf and asking them how it felt. If there's any concern it's that he seems more comfortable starting with his hands on his knees than in a three-point stance, but the Stanford coaches know him well. If they aren't worried about that, there's no reason I should be.
If Dreyer can add another twenty or thirty pounds without sacrificing his quickness and athleticism, he has the potential to develop into one of the top offensive tackles in the Pac-12. Pretty much business as usual for the Tunnel Workers Union.
