NFL Combine: Brady Quinn Chiseled, JaMarcus Russell Chubby
All the quarterbacks were paraded around wearing nothing but shorts in front of the scouts (and NFL Network cameras) to be weighed and measured, and there's no question that if one of them is going to be on the cover of Men's Health, it'll be Quinn. Russell was a somewhat pudgy 6-foot-6 and 265 pounds. Quinn was a ripped 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds.
Does that make a big difference in where they'll be drafted? Ordinarily I'd say no. But it's intriguing that the team with the first overall pick, the Oakland Raiders, is led by Al Davis, a man who for decades has boasted about his ability to spot great athletes just by looking at them. Davis used to find his own secluded spot at the combine and point out which players he thought were the best athletes, based purely on appearance. Davis isn't quite as active in the scouting of players as he once was, but he's still the man who's ultimately in charge. I think the Raiders will take Russell first overall, but don't rule out Quinn just yet.
UPDATE: Brady Quinn's bench press is as impressive as his body.
