Bryce Young, the former Alabama quarterback, refused to weigh in for at his pro day workout. Young, a consensus top two pick, had garnered concerns about his size at the next level. At the NFL Combine, he was measured at five feet, 10-1/8 inches in height. The average weight of an NFL quarterback varies, however, according to the NFL Player’s Association, the average weight of a quarterback is approximately 225 pounds.
It is not uncommon for NFL prospects to not weigh themselves at a pro day. While many prospects do weigh themselves during the pre-draft process, there are several reasons why some may choose not to do so.
Bryce Young declined to weigh in at the Alabama Pro Day. He was 204 at the Combine, listed at 194 by his school. Likely will never run a forty either. Prospects at the very top might have that luxury. It's more about interviews and talking them for pro teams at this stage. pic.twitter.com/E0WIZjPg7l

One reason is that some prospects may prefer to have their official measurements taken at the NFL Scouting Combine, where they can be evaluated in a controlled environment with standardized equipment and procedures.
Another reason is that some prospects may feel that their weight is not a significant factor in their evaluation, particularly if they have a track record of on-field success or possess other elite physical traits that make them stand out as a prospect.
Bryce Young did not weigh in this morning at Alabama’s pro day. He’ll stand on his 204 pounds from the Scouting Combine.
