Following the likes of Doug Flutie and Russell Wilson, Johnny Manziel will officially join the NFL as an under six-foot quarterback, after measuring in at 5-foot-11 3/4 at the NFL Combine Friday morning.

Last week, Manziel falsely prognosticated that he would come in at "72 inches on the dot." Manziel's height has been one of the main concerns of NFL scouts heading into April's draft. However, despite Manziel's short stature, he still remains one of the top quarterback prospects in the draft along with Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater and Central Florida's Blake Bortles, both of whom measured over 6-feet.

Manziel's hands were measured at 9 7/8 inches, which is vital for a quarterback of his size. Russell Wilson, whose hand measured at 10 1/4 inches in 2012, showed what a short quarterback with large hands can do, when he led the Seattle Seahawks to a Super Bowl vicory this past season.
