INDIANAPOLIS -- Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III can check off the primary criticism on his scouting report -- size.
At weigh-in for skill-position players Friday morning, Griffin was measured at 6023 (6-2 3/8) and 223 pounds according to multiple sources.
Listed at 6-2, 220, as a junior at Baylor, reports circulated that the Heisman Trophy winner might be closer to 6-0 and 200-pounds. However, it was best case scenario for Griffin who debunked several rumors just by stepping on a scale and getting measured.
Since he decided to forego his senior season in Waco, he has been the No. 2 quarterback in this draft class by NFLDraftScout.com, behind only Stanford's Andrew Luck. Draft analyst Rob Rang ranks Griffin as the No. 4 overall prospect on his Big Board.
With his official measureables in the books, all eyes will be on Griffin during workouts, especially for his 40-yard dash, if he decides to run on Sunday with his quarterback group. As a true freshman at Baylor in 2008, he was a Track and Field All-American after finishing third at NCAA Outdoor Championships in the 400-meter hurdles (49.55).
Griffin also won the gold medal in the 400-meter hurdles at the Big 12 track meet with the third-fastest time in school history (49.22).
Although Griffin isn't expected to throw for NFL teams in Indianapolis this week, Griffin has stated he's "excited to wow them in interviews."
