Heisman winner Griffin stands tall at NFL combine

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- NFL scouts can dismiss the rumors of the incredibly shrinking Heisman Trophy winner.

Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III measured in at 6-foot-2 3/8 and 223 pounds at the NFL's annual scouting combine.

The biggest concern about Griffin's pro future was whether he would come in at less than 6-1. So Griffin had some fun with it.

He mentioned his height three times while speaking with reporters, bringing it up again when asked about comparisons between himself and Cam Newton. Griffin acknowledged Newton was bigger, citing his height and weight, before mentioning his own measurements.

Griffin says he was listed at 6-4 and 200 pounds in high school and has been accused of shrinking and gaining weight since then.
