Trace McSorley has been one of the best players in college football during his time at Penn State, but is the quarterback big enough to have success at the position in the NFL?

The former star Big Ten quarterback is hoping to prove that and he's showcasing his abilities at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama this week.

McSorley will get a chance to play with some of the best players in college football in front of dozens of NFL coaches and scouts at the Senior Bowl.

First, though, McSorley had to get measured.

The measurements for the Penn State quarterback are in:

"Penn State QB Trace McSorley: 6-0 1/4, 200. Hand just 9 1/8," NFL.com's Chase Goodbread tweeted.

McSorley, unsurprisingly, is the smallest quarterback at the Senior Bowl this week.

It's not a bad time to be a small quarterback, though.

There are several short-ish quarterbacks having success in the NFL, from Russell Wilson to Baker Mayfield to Drew Brees.

Another small quarterback, Kyler Murray, is believed to be a first-round prospect for the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Senior Bowl will be taking place all week in Mobile, Alabama. The NFL Draft is set for Thursday, April 25 to Saturday, April 27.
