Dataviz: NFL players height & weight over time

[Really cool data visualization][link] from [Noah Veltman][twitter] tracking the average height and weight of NFL players from 1920 – 2014.

Spoiler: The graph starts moving much more quickly towards heavier players in the 80s when growth hormones and steroids started getting serious, while the average height goes up at a pretty steady rate the whole time. That’s… depressingly unsurprising.
