The results are in.

Baker Mayfield has been weighed, and he has been measured. Pardon the A Knight's Tale reference if you will.

Mayfield was officially measured at the Senior Bowl, ending any debate about his height and weight. Both of which have been heavily scrutinized heading into draft prep.

A quarterback in the NFL generally stands north of 6-foot-2, with a few exceptions. Russell Wilson and Drew Brees have been effective despite their size.

Many wondered if Baker Mayfield is tall enough to make it in the NFL, claiming he might just be another Johnny Manziel. Not only in terms of his off-field issues, but due to the fact that he might be undersized.

Scouts breathed a sigh of relief on Tuesday when Mayfield's official measurements were released. Although he doesn't have the size of potential No. 1 pick Josh Allen (6-foot-5), Mayfield "passed the test."

The biggest takeaway from his measurements is that his height begins with a six. Mayfield measured in at over 6-foot, which is seen as a positive over the alternative of him being a shade under.

Now, does being 6-foot even make a huge difference over being 5-foot-11? In scouts eyes, for some reason, it does. Here are Mayfield's official measurements.

Russell Wilson measured 5-foot-11 during the NFL combine. However, Wilson is a more athletic version of Baker Mayfield, and possesses a stronger arm to boot.

Mock drafts suggests Mayfield will go in the first round. He has the potential to be a top-6 pick if the New York Jets select the reigning Heisman-winner.
