When its only 1-2 inches. I mean, seriously, every single negative thing I've read about Troy Smith mentions he has "serious height concerns." Really? He's 6' tall. I'd say the average NFL QB is somewhere between 6'2" and 6'5" There are a lot of 6'2" QBs and shorter. Does the extra 2" really add that much? And even it does, out of the top QBs, 2 other notables come to mind who happen to be the exact same height as Troy Smith: -Drew Brees -Mike Vick Anyway, I have zero desire to have Troy Smith, at least at this point, but I just find it hillarious how much playing ability goes to the trash can and how important measureables become. Someone can have 3 or 4 record breaking years but run 0.1 - 0.2 seconds slower than someone who with 3 or 4 average yeyars and still be taken later. Someone can have 3 or 4 record breaking years and be 1-2" shorter than the next guy and be taken rounds later. Make sense? Not to me either. I'm sorry, but when you have NFL teams recruiting coaches out of college, and NFL coaches going to college programs, I don't think the staff differential is that high. So how is that a player with slightly better measureables but worse work ethic, stats, etc is looked at someone with "a lot more potential." In my opinion, if they didn't do much in college, its way worse than being "1 inch shorter than the average player at his position"
