Crabtree doesn’t quite measure up

When the official combine measurements came in on Friday for the running backs, quarterbacks and wide receivers, there was one height that stood out from the rest. Or should we say, stood below the rest?

Texas Tech wideout Michael Crabtree, who was listed by his school at 6-foot-3, measured nearly two inches below that at 6-1 3/8. That, by far, was the biggest differential in height of those measured over the last two days.

Other top prospects who came up short included both top quarterbacks, Georgia’s Matthew Stafford and USC’s Mark Sanchez, who both came in at 6-foot-2, an inch below their listed heights.
