Rob, this is a silly question but....
Where would an 8'6" guy land compare to him? XXXXPPPPPPPPPP
Canson said on 3/Mar/18
he’s Kobe’s size 195cm at a low. 6’5 easy in the morning

@Rob: that seems odd 1/4” advantage tho for some but guess it could be true. The measurements are probably all done within about 2-3 hours of them waking max. (let us hypothetically say if they’ve been on their feet for an hour when begin the measurements). I bet they only last about an hour from when they start probably?? Not sure. So say they wake at 6am then begin getting measured at 7am or in the 6am hour they likely would be done by 8 I’m thinking so maybe 2 hours on their feet

@Rob; from the evidence I’ve seen these aren’t mid morning measurements. They’re an hour out of bed. They typically get up at 6 am do drug screening then measured. From the 2006 and other years I’ve seen they’ve typically been 3/8 or 1/2” diff from an afternoon measurement such as at the Senior Bowl when it used to be In the afternoon. Sure not all players are that high some may get less sleep but prob rare they do
Some players will get measured earlier than others, I suppose there is a bunch of them going through the process and the earlier guys might be at a 1/4 inch advantage than some of the later guys.

@KH: agree with your points but I think Cam wasn’t fibbing that’s his listed height when he played ball at Auburn. To be fair he is honest now as he called Lebron 6’7” in an article.
@Rob: only thing with this listing is he’s clearly taller than Colin Kapernick by a hair. Meaning if Kap is listed his combine height Cam would have to be at least a full 6’5 just because that’s a good CM difference. My opinion is both are morning heights Colin and Cam and that Kap is my height prob at night and Cam prob 195cm at his low
It was probably better to put Colin back down an 1/8th as I think with many of the NFL listings, anywhere from 1/8th to 1/4 less would be more a mid-day reading.

He isn't close to 6'6 so he should eat the penalty of 7/8 and not getting the full 6'5 listing lol. Just because your tall doesnt give you the right to fib he is no different then the weak 5'7 guy claiming to be 5'8. Its actually worse in taller guys to lie imo.

Good point Christian. Foles looks shorter than Wentz imho. More than just the 1/4” that separates them on their pre drafts. But to be fair Wentz looks a much better 6’5” than a lot of others I’ve seen. He’s like a JJ Watt in that he looks close to his pre draft. I couldn’t see Wentz falling under 6’5 on a normal day.
@Rampage: yea from what I’ve seen that’s been the norm since 2006 at least early morning. But Cam to be fair doesn’t look as different as a lot of others would in the afternoon from their morning. Like some guys may vary 1/2” since it’s early morning. I think Cam looks the same size as Kobe does about 6’4.75 (195cm approximately) vs 6’4.5ish

Easily 6ft6 or more in sneakers if this is an afternoon measurement. But like Canson pointed that there is a good chance it was in the AM

Rob, why the 6’4 7/8” listing? You usually list players exactly the height they were measured. You list Nick Foles at 6’5” so you should list Cam at 6’5” too since both were measured 6’5” flat.
It's an estimate, I think you could argue both may fall shy of 6ft 5.
At least Foles only claimed 6ft 5, Newton claimed 6ft 6.

@im 171: I think if it weren’t for combines being held so early in the day I may have actually said he was 6’5” flat. I used to think he was honestly. But that’s because of his build. He looks close in height with Peyton Manning and taller than brady but when you see him next to Gronk who I don’t believe is actually even a full 6’6” at a low (next to Jimmy Graham) 6’5.75 more likely Cam looks 195cm max. Like he does with Kobe too (Kobe has a camera advantage so likely around the same height as he looks next to Lebron how Kobe does

@Rampage: they measure so early in the AM (6am or 7am) that it’s highly unlikely. I see a 3/8-1/2” variance in senior bowl and combine when the senior bowls were done in the afternoon. I can see 6’5.5 out of bed perhaps and 6’4.75 at a low but to be honest he can look no less than 195

south carolina guy here. 7/8? haha. you've gone too far.
Canson said on 12/Feb/18
Even at likely 195 I feel that he would edge Michael Jordan by a full 1/4” if not a cm
Canson said on 12/Feb/18
Lol Rob knocked the fraction off!!! He can actually pull off of a full 6’5” on occasion but being he measured in the AM I feel that the 195cm is fair 6’4.75 is likely as high as he would actually be at his low. Which means he holds his height well compared to others who lose 3/8-1/2 below their combine. He rarely looks no less than 195cm. Same height as Kobe

6ft6 out of bed, Rob?
Could be, or 6ft 6 in sneakers...

Looks tall I'd say 6'4" flat
