ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– One of the biggest questions entering Senior Bowl Week was how tall Baker Mayfield would be. It’s a big deal for quarterbacks to be more than six feet tall.

Mayfield measured in at 6-feet 3/8-inches tall.

Mayfield and Wyoming’s Josh Allen are the two best quarterbacks on the north roster. And the Broncos coaches will be looking at quarterbacks as they coach that team in the upcoming Senior Bowl this weekend.

The draft is seven rounds deep, so even if the Broncos don’t end up with Allen or Mayfield, there are plenty of guys they’re coaching who could end up on their roster on draft day.

“When you coach this game, having access to the players at a different level outside of just football, allows you to pick the right players. Jacksonville coached this game, I think, three years with Gus… That team played pretty well on Sunday, so I think it’s worth it,” said Broncos head coach Vance Joseph.
