Danny Trevathan was too everything to play in the NFL.

Too short, standing 6-foot-1. Too slow. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.82 seconds at the NFL combine,
making his eye-opening career at Kentucky useless when the draft arrived. Too little. His 237-pound

him. In a league of specialists, Trevathan is the rare breed of three-down linebackers.

"A lot of people used to say I was too small. I fed off that," Trevathan said. "For me to be here is a
testimony to guys that are a little undersized. This league is constantly changing. You have to be able
to run and hit as well as be a little physical."
