The Ron Wolf model

1

One of Wolf’s core draft commandments was to never select a defensive back under 5-foot-11. He wanted big cornerbacks and safeties with speed that loved to hit and tackle. Although the first pick of Wolf’s Green Bay career was Terrell Buckley, a 5-foot-10 cornerback out of Florida Statee selected fifth overall in the 1992 draft, it was a pick that he regrets as Buckley spent an unremarkable three seasons with the team. "I violated one of my basic tenets, and that is you don’t take a defensive back or cornerback under 5-11," Wolf told Don Banks of Sports Illustrated in April 2001 shortly after announcing his retirement. "In bad weather you need big people."
