INDIANAPOLIS -- Baker Mayfield measured taller at the NFL Scouting Combine by a quarter-inch Thursday over the measurement taken at the Reese's Senior Bowl just a month ago. The former Oklahoma star quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner checked in at 6-foot 5/8 at his combine weigh-in. NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah first reported the news.
Mayfield measured 6-foot 3/8 at the Senior Bowl. That measurement was taken privately upon Mayfield's late arrival, a day after Senior Bowl players participated in the group weigh-in event in front of hundreds of scouts, coaches and media. Because NFL clubs typically prefer quarterbacks taller than Mayfield, his measurements have been a crucial element to his draft evaluation.
Mayfield could be measured again at Oklahoma's March 14 pro day workout.
