Alabama QB Bryce Young enjoyed a lot of success during his collegiate career and is predicted to be a top pick in April’s NFL Draft.
The 2021 Heisman Trophy winner put up great stats during his career at Alabama. The biggest question surrounding Young is his height.
Young is listed at 6’0″, which is average height, but for a NFL QB, most of the scouts and people making the decisions on draft picks say 6’4″ is the standard.
A photo of Young with ESPN’s Mina Kimes (via Twitter), is causing quite a stir on social media.
Having the prototypical size and height is ideal, but it seems people are too tied-up in numbers and NFL combine results, rather than intangibles and on the field play.
Young played at the highest level, at one of the best college football programs in the country. His height did seem to be the problem, while leading Alabama to success.
