Unlike last year, when Wisconsin's Russell Wilson measured in at the scouting combine at 5' 10 5/8", there are no quarterbacks at the 2013 combine shorter than 6'2". There are still a few interesting physical specimens in this year's class, however.
With the Green Bay Packers unlikely to draft a quarterback in the early rounds, it seems unlikely that they'll look at the players in the top half of this year's draft. However, Mike Glennon of NC State surprised me, measuring in at 6 feet, 7 inches. I didn't realize that he was that tall. Another surprising measurement was E.J. Manuel's hands: they're the biggest in this QB class at 10-3/8" long. One player I was curious about is Minnesota's Marqueis Gray, who played some wide receiver for the Gophers and could be a candidate for a position change. He measured in at 6'3" and 240 pounds, the heaviest of any quarterback, and that's a size that suggests that he could potentially end up in a H-Back or tight end role.
