Johnny Manziel just under 6-foot mark at NFL Combine

Posted Feb 21, 2014

Quarterbacks were measured during Friday's NFL Combine events.

Johnny Manziel measured in at 5-feet-11 ¾  and 207 pounds, according to Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network.  During Friday’s weigh-in at the NFL Combine, Manziel just missed the 6-foot mark and was listed as the shortest of the top three quarterback draft prospects. Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was measured at 6-2 1/8 and 214 pounds. Blake Bortles of Central Florida topped all three in height and weight at 6-5, 232 pounds.

Manziel, however, had the biggest hands of the three. The Aggie QB measured a 9 7/8-inch hand size. Bortles hands measured in at 9 3/8 and Bridgewater’s at 9 ¼.

On Friday, quarterbacks will undergo measurements, medical examinations, and team interviews. The quarterbacks group is scheduled to perform on-field drills on Sunday.
