Robert Griffin III Comes In Over 6'2 At NFL Combine Measurements

Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III arrived in Indianapolis on Thursday, along with the other quarterbacks who were invited to the 2012 NFL Combine. Their first day at the event consisted mostly of registration and pre-screenings, but on Friday morning they got down to brass tacks. The second batch of groups will have their measurements taken and undergo medical and psychological testing throughout the day on Friday.

Alex Marvez of FOX Sports sent out a tweet on Friday morning to relay the information that Griffin had measured in at 6'2 and 3/8 inches. Marvez further stated that the additional height will only add to Griffin's stock value. The prevailing belief is that the taller the quarterback, the better-suited he is to the NFL. Griffin had previously always been listed as 6'2.

The gap between Griffin and projected No. 1 overall pick, Andrew Luck, has just narrowed by the slimmest of margins. Luck is billed at 6'4.
