Parcells sticks with prototypes to build bigger/better team
This is one of the reasons why Parcells opened the outdoor to Zach and why those of us who like OLB/DE Brandon Graham will not get our wish on draft day. I think Parcells draft history validates Ireland's comments.

Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland admits the later the round, the looser the Dolphins' prototype becomes for certain positions. But there are others -- like outside linebackers and offensive linemen – where history warrants inflexibility.
"I'm kind of one of those guys that studies the history, and I'm going to go with what worked in the league," Ireland said. "Certain positions in this league, over time [studies] would tell you that small players don't have much success."
