How cool would it be to impress really important people just by standing still?

Donovan Mitchell won’t participate in the 5-on-5 games at this week’s NBA Draft combine, but that doesn’t mean he can’t improve his draft stock.

Such an event occurred on Thursday, when Mitchell’s measurable led the folks over at Draft Express to refer to the former Cardinal as “perhaps the most impressive physical specimen” in attendance.

Those measurables:

Body fat: 5.9 percent.

Hand length: 8 1/2 inches.

Hand width: 9 1/2 inches.

Height with shoes: 6-3.

Standing reach: 8-1.

Weight: 211.4 pounds.

Wingspan: 6-10.

Can you imagine potentially earning millions of dollars just by standing still and having powerful people admire what an impressive human being you are? Not a bad vocation.

For what it’s worth, Draft Express now has Mitchell all the way up at No. 12 in its latest mock draft. You can see all the numbers from all the draft prospects who are in attendance at the combine right here.
