Johnny Manziel is short, but has humongous hands. I'd make a joke here, but I can't think of a good one. It's hardly shocking, though: his size was evident from watching the tape, and it seems like people don't think the height itself will be an issue for Manziel in the NFL. Mostly, his issue will likely be playing within a system, or finding an offensive coordinator who can harness his talents for
More surprising (and encouraging) were Teddy Bridgewater's measurements. While he doesn't have the biggest hands, his 6'2" 2/8", 214 is significantly bigger than expected, eliminating the biggest question mark regarding the Louisville quarterback. He actually clocked in as slightly bigger than Derek Carr, which is mildly surprising. Bridgewater is widely seen as the most pro-ready NFL quarterback, although he doesn't have the arm strength of Blake Bortles or explosive talent of Manziel.
Meanwhile, Logan Thomas has the best physical measurements of everyone in the building, and probably the worst quarterbacking skills as well. There were no real shocking reveals among the other players.

NOTE: Height is listed using the scout method for height, IE 6024. The first numbers is feet (6 = 6 feet). The next number is full inches with a leading zero (02, so 6'2") and the final number is an eighth of an inch. This means someone listed at 6024 would be 6'2" and 1/2".
