a large part of the NFL combine is just taking measurements of the players size...
I would thing that a scout would have to be an idiot if he didn't take size into consideration
Position is the reason that Oden will get picked before Durant, most teams now need a 7'0 center with post moves. Not many teams need a 6'9-6'10 Small Forward more then they need a good center.
NFL is very different to the NBA. In the NBA you can be undersized and still be effective, thats not the case in NFL, unless you're big and strong then you really have no chance at playing in the NFL as a tackler or defensive player. (I Don't know positions, i don't follow the NFL)
