Factoid: Zay Flowers

Quarterback size is a popular pre-draft discussion, but teams are also thinking about wide receivers in this regard. Most of the wideouts selected in the top 10 picks in recent years are at least 6 feet tall; Drake London, Garrett Wilson, JaMarr Chase and DeVonta Smith the last two years all measured 6-0 to 6-4 at the combine.
