NFL Combine 2012: Robert Griffin III Is Exactly 6 Feet, 2 And 3/8 Inches Tall

Rest assured, RG3 fans and supporters of NFL teams in the market to draft a franchise quarterback: Robert Griffin has ample height to play the position:

Each installment of the NFL Draft features a batch of weird subplots, and one of the early rumors for 2012 was that Griffin was shorter than the 6-foot-2 listing in Baylor's media guide. As it turned out, the Heisman winner's got a whopping 3/8 of an inch the sporting world never even knew about.

Also of note? Griffin won a lot of football games by throwing (and running for) a lot of touchdowns, which might be more of an indicator of potential pro success than height. Drew Brees and Mike Vick are a solid 6-foot-nothing, we might add.
