A quick Google search suggests that Trindon Holliday is the smallest NFL player in modern times (he was drafted in 2010 by the Houston Texans).

He measured in at 5'5" and 162 pounds.

So it is safe to say smaller/lighter than that doesn't work well in the NFL.

To be sure there are women bigger than that though (who are also physically fit).
