The 2012 NFL Combine moves into day three in Indianapolis, and while offense of lineman and special teams players prepare for psychological testing interviews, offensive skill position players await measurements and front line defense of players attend orientation. The list of NFL talent on hand continues to grow, but the event is still building towards the ever important skill drills.
A draft prospect they could still make a huge impact on his draft day status without ever seeing a drill is Baylor Bears quarterback Robert Griffin III, who is set for measurement today. Some scouts and talent evaluators have been concerned that Griffin will measure in closer to 6 feet tall than where Baylor listed him (6-foot-2) back in college. Then again, Michael Davis Smith of ProFootballTalk.com is reporting that Griffin measured at six feet, two and three-eighths inches, which would be a huge boon for his draft stock. The St. Louis Rams will be paying very close attention to the measurement, as it may affect their ability to trade the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL draft for additional assets.
