INDIANAPOLIS -- The narrative about North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky potentially being short enough to scare NFL teams away from him died on Thursday.
He might be on the short side for the position -- Browns coach Hue Jackson said Thursday that the threshold he has for QBs is 6-2 -- and he measured under 6-3, which is what UNC listed him at, but Trubisky won't have to deal with the fallout of falling well below the height NFL teams prefer. Of course, Drew Brees (6-0) and Russell Wilson (5-11) might have something to say about Jackson's height threshold.
Here are some other results for notable quarterback and wide receiver prospects who were measured on Thursday:
» Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer measured 6-4 1/4, 233 pounds, the biggest of all QBs at the combine.
» Clemson QB Deshaun Watson measured 6-2 1/2, 221 pounds, checking the boxes on both counts.
» Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes was the shortest QB measured on Thursday at 6-2.
» The measurements for top WR prospects: Clemson's Mike Williams (6-3 5/8, 218 pounds), Washington WR John Ross (5-10 3/4, 188 pounds), Western Michigan WR Corey Davis (6-2 3/4, 209).
» Texas A&M's Ricky Seals-Jones was the tallest receiver at 6-4 5/8. Georgia's Isaiah McKenzie was the shortest receiver at 5-7 1/2.
