It's about 850,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell
In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.00000120 times 7 yards.
(a.k.a. RBCs, a.k.a. haematids, a.k.a. erythrocyte, a.k.a. erythroid cells, a.k.a. red blood corpuscles)
An average Red Blood Cell measures 7.5 µm (micrometers) in diameter. An average human has 20 - 30 trillion red blood cells in their body and each cell completes a circulatory lap in about 20 seconds.
It's about one-one-millionth as long as The Great Wall of China (wall only)
In other words, 7 yards is 0.0000010230 times the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only), and the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only) is 977,500 times that amount.
