Teddy Bridgewater weighs in at 214 pounds at combine

While much of the attention Friday morning at the NFL Scouting Combine was focused on Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel measuring in at a shade less than 6 feet, two other quarterback measurements shouldn't go unnoticed.

Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater, who has been dinged for his lack of bulk, measured in at 6-foot-2 and 214 pounds; he was listed at 6-3 and 196 while in school. And UCF's Blake Bortles, who was listed at 6-4 and 230 pounds while in school, actually measured in at 6-5 and 230 pounds.

Bridgewater's lack of bulk was one of the biggest criticisms of the Louisville signal-caller. While he has gained needed weight (or at least needed weight in the eyes of most analysts), the question now obviously becomes how he moves around with the extra poundage. That will make Saturday's combine workouts even more intriguing.

Thirty-seven quarterbacks have been drafted in the first round since 2000. Just two, Michael Vick in 2001 and Rex Grossman in '03, measured less than 6-2. Seven were, like Bridgewater, 6-2. Thirteen were, like Bortles, at least 6-5.

The hand-size measurements also are in. Manziel's is huge, at 9 7/8 inches. Bortles' is 9 3/8 and Bridgewater's 9 1/4.
