Some prospects come up short

Every year, one of the most interesting aspects of the draft combine is the list detailing the official height and weight of each player.

Here's a look at how every player in the draft measured up.

The NBA spends more time scrutinizing things such as wingspan and standing reach than it does actual heights. How big a player is with his hands above his head (for bigs) and with his arms outstretched (for guards) means much more on the basketball floor than a static height.

For starters, here is Nerlens Noel's tale of the tape: Noel measured 6-foot-10 in socks and 6-11.5 in shoes. He had a 7-3.75 wingspan and a very good 9-2 standing reach.

How does he compare with Anthony Davis? Noel actually is a little taller.
