INDIANAPOLIS — Baylor QB Robert Griffin III has yet to go through any drills at the NFL Scouting Combine this week, but he passed one of his most important tests in the eyes of many scouts when he stepped up to the scale Friday morning.
Griffin officially was measured at 6-foot-2 3/8 and 223 pounds– impressive figures for a player who dealt with a number of questions regarding how he’d be measured at the combine compared to the numbers Baylor listed (6-2, 220).
Griffin’s chief rival to be the No. 1 overall pick in April’s NFL draft, Stanford QB Andrew Luck, officially was measured at 6-4 and 238 pounds. Luck’s numbers were the same as the ones listed by Stanford.
Griffin is expected to work out in front of scouts this weekend, and he said earlier this week that he plans to run a sub-4.5-second 40-yard dash. Griffin also said he doesn’t intend to throw.
