Keenum and Manziel listed at 6 ft 1 in. Elway and Moon check in at 6ft 3in, Montana 6ft 2in.
I'm not totally discounting height, but as you can see, and noted, lacking prototypical height can be overcome.
By the way: Ryan Leaf 6ft 5in, JaMarcus Russell 6ft 6in. Prototypical height helped their draft value, but didn't cement their franchise QB status or NFL success.
