When Robert Griffin III decided not to throw at the Combine this week the remaining big question he faced was just how tall he would measure out. There were a lot of talent evaluators that were worried that Griffin would measure out as shorter than the 6-foot-2 that he was listed as. But it looks like that won't be a concern.
Gil Brandt says #RGIII was measured at 6-2 3/8 ... That's very good for his draft stock.— Alex Marvez (@alexmarvez) February 24, 2012
While height is not a necessity for a successful quarterback (Drew Brees for example) the vast majority of starting quarterbacks in the NFL are over 6-foot-2. Griffin could have measured out shorter than what he was listed at during the season and that could give some teams pause. But if he performs as well as he is expected to in the other events, he could leave with a very successful combine performance.
