2014 NFL Combine: Blake Bortles, Johnny Manziel measurements not as expected

Joe Robbins

The combine measurements are in. Most measurements on the board are actually accurate but two of the top three quarterback prospects measured differently than their college numbers suggested -- One good, one not so good.

In an odd and rare case, UCF quarterback Blake Bortles came in TALLER than his college measurement. He was listed between 6-3 and 6-4 in college and measured a statuesque 6-5 at the combine.

The times when colleges tend to tweak the measurement is when a player' actual height is considered short. Up to this point, most scouting reports had Johnny Manziel at 6-1. His official combine measurement has him at about 5-11.5. Not good news for Manziel who has much to prove at the combine to be deemed worthy of a top five pick. He is the only quarterback at the combine to not crack 6-0.

Here is the complete listing of QB measurements:

NOTE: Height is listed using the scout method for height, IE 6024. The first numbers is feet (6 = 6 feet). The next number is full inches with a leading zero (02, so 6'2") and the final number is an eighth of an inch. This means someone listed at 6024 would be 6'2" and 1/2".
