- Jeff Foote measured in as the tallest player in the NBA combine as the draft's only true seven-footer. While Foote measured in at 7'0"-- teammate Ryan Wittman measured-in at 6' 5.5", a half inch less than his Cornell roster listed height. Foote also weighed in at 252 pounds. Foote's 7'4" wing span ranks 13th among those entering the draft, while his reach of 9'3.5" ranks third. Combine these rankings with Foote's documented worth ethic, intelligence, and rapid improvement in 2.5 years with Cornell, NBA teams should absolutely consider drafting him in the second round.
