Measured at 5'9 169lbs. That is a pretty big distance from his listed playing numbers of 6'0 or 5'11 185lbs.
Analysts have been saying for months that he'll weigh in well under his "measurements". Teams already knew that he was tiny and a gamble. But hey, so is S.Smith.

Maybe as a PR/KRer, but that's pretty small for a WR IMO. If he has exceptional strength, that may be his saving grace.

he'll have his chance at the combine. Don't get your panties in a bunch just yet. I can say this, he better shine on Sunday at the combine. I'll be watching at 11am.

I'm not turned off, I still like the player, but the 32 NFL franchises will be turned off.

That's just how it is. Recievers who are 5'9 or so don't go in the first round. At least not the early first round. Sinorice Moss (2nd round), Steve Smith Carolina (3rd round), I think Lee Evans is probably the shortest 1st rounder in awhile (5-10, #13 overall). DeSean Jackson may run a phenomenal 40 time and get some consideration but the fact is, sitting at 5-9, he's likely going to slide.

According to Matt Mayock, there are no 1st round graded WRs in this year's draft.....

He has a future in Arena Football if the NFL doesn't work out.
