QBs, WRs Weigh in

Both Sam Bradford and Jimmy Clausen had been taking knocks for months over their size, Bradford for being too thin, Clausen for being too short. Well, good news: those issues are resolved.

Sam Bradford measured in at 6042 or 6 feet, 04 inches and 2/8 (1/4). That’s pretty good size for a QB. More importantly, he came in at 236 on the scales, with the additional 14 lbs from his listed weight last year coming from muscle.

Jimmy Clausen had been knocked around for being too short, with a lot of people thinking he would come in a hair under 6’1″ rather than the 6’3″ he was reported as all year. Well, he just measured in a 6025 (6’2″ 5/8) and 222, which should get people to stop worrying about his height; generally, a “clean” QB prospect is 6’2″ and about 220 lbs. Manchurian Candidate much?
