Bryce Young’s weight reportedly a bigger concern than height

Former Alabama quarterback Bryce Young played two stellar seasons as the starter for the Crimson Tide. With a Heisman Trophy under his belt and countless other accolades, he now prepares to begin his professional career, but must first go through the NFL draft process.

During the evaluation process leading up to the draft, analysts and scouts detail every possible flaw in all the top prospects. With Young, there are seemingly no concerns with his abilities on the field. The only issue that has been mentioned is his size.

But what does that mean, exactly? Height and weight are both often important measurements, but should they matter when the player has proven that not meeting the industry standards in measurables hasn’t hurt him?

Young’s height has been a big talking point. He recently measured at just over 5-foot-10-inches at the 2023 NFL scouting combine and weighed in at 204 pounds at Alabama’s pro day.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network recently revealed that the sense he got in Tuscaloosa during the pro day was that the height wasn’t as much of a concern as his weight.

Roll Tide Wire will continue to follow Young and other former Alabama players as the 2023 NFL draft approaches.
