Goes to show how tall a strong or even legit 6'6" (he could be either) is. He isn't 6'7" and is not as tall as crouch is. Far more likely faried is 6'5" not 6'6". The NBA is not trustworthy with its measurements even the barefoot ones

Mertesacker is listed 199 cm and 95 kg in Arsenal catalogue. For example Chamberlain is listed 175 cm 79 kg and Walcott 174 cm 73 kg. Cazorla is overlisted 169 cm and Alexis 171 cm and Ozil 182 cm too

Also, Emmanuel Mudiay & Malik Beasley, who I can't seem to find on here, are in no way, shape or form 1.96m as listed. both were barely an inch taller than Rob Holding (who himself is maybe a cm above 6'2") and a good 4" shorter than Mertesacker so 6'3" for both would be my guess. Completing the Nuggets players who visited the Emirates stadium, Juan Hernangomez is 6'9", seemed 2 inches taller than Per.

6'7" to 6'7.25" if Faried is genuinely 6'6". When the Nuggets had publicity shots taken in the Arsenal dressing room, Per was noticeably taller. I'm not a basketball fan but assumed (based on Per being 6'6" as listed) Faried was 6'4.75" to 6'5". If, as Johnson says, he was measured in barefoot at the draft at 6'6" then Mertesacker is 6'7" minimum because he genuinely is an inch to an inch and a quarter taller. Faried is maybe an inch taller than Petr Cech who to me is a genuine 6'5" bloke so 6'6" for him sounds spot on. Peter Crouch is all but 6'8" for comparison if anybody can find a pic of him with Mertesacker and Neuer is a genuine 6'4".

Faried was measured 6'6 barefoot in draft

I just saw a picture of him standing next to Kenneth Faried (NBA player) and he appears to be about an inch taller than Faried who's listed at 6'8"!!! Should also be noted that NBA players pretty regularly are listed an inch sometimes two taller than they actually are, but I suspect Mertesacker might actually be a little taller than he lets on. He might even be a tiny bit taller than 6'7"

I knew it!!!! That he was taller than what he claims. He has a solid 4 inches over 6ft 4 Baoteng. Just like my roommate who is the exact same height as this guy yet claims only 6ft 6. I'm also 6ft 4 and he has his eyes over my head. Mertesacker must be 6ft 8 in shoes.

To me 6'6.25 measured Carmelo Anthony appears a bit taller.

Ok. Checked a few pics. 199 - 200 is more believable than 6'6 flat.
True Story:
Before he became a professional player (in the same year he debuted for hannover) in Hannover - I met him. I had a friend who played with him in the youth team. The first thing I registered was his height and I asked him how tall he is. He just answered "too tall" then he said 1-98 .. it could very well be that he isn't someone who is very proud for his height.

Indeed, check him out with Van Persie. Looks about 6 inches taller. Persie is supposed to be around 6 ft 1.

Rob, why do you think he is taller than he is listed?
[Editor Rob: generally he can look more than the 198cm, when compared to other footballers, at times he can look 6ft 6.5 in fact.]

Manuel Neur please,please,please Rob =PPPP

Rob, how low it goes after a match, you said that the ibra fall to 193.5
[Editor Rob: most players might reach absolute lows after 90 minute matches. The body gets dehydrated and the strain on the discs compresses them to their lowest.]

Thanks Rob, seems a good shout. He could look near 6 inches taller than players who are supposedly near 6 ft 1!
