David Ramsey's Height
6ft 2 (188 cm)
American actor best known for playing John Diggle in TV series Arrow and Anton Briggs in Dexter. In this convention photo David had about 1/3rd inch more footwear than me. In MuscleandFitness he said "I'm 6'3” and normally live around 215, but I can easily put on eight to 10 pounds of muscle in a week or two"

I can't see him being less than 6'2"!

It's interesting that after (autocorrect tried to change that after to that's fated!) 62 votes the average vote works out as 6'2.01"!

I'll give 6'2" for David as well, great actor too.

Nice height, I thought he’s like 6’4” in arrow but I guess he’s 188.5 cm most of the time at 6’2.25”

While a fraction under 6'2 isn't impossible for sure, 6'2 is still a good shout for him. Even on Dexter, he easily looked around that, and at least 4 inches taller than MCH in a scene...
Ramsey does look consistantly around that 6ft 2 range on Arrow I thought...in person he was definitely taller than Kane Hodder that weekend.

RE your response to Christian, I thought having hair gave the illusion of being taller? but from what you have typed it doesn't seem so...
I'm saying there can look an inch between Routh and Ramsey in person because of Routh having more hair...but I don't think there is any more than about half inch.
The hair definitely gives Routh an advantage in person over Ramsey.

At least 6'1 7/8 since Rob is 5'8 1/8 and 1/3 less footwear.
Christian 6'5 3/8
said on 16/Aug/18
I disagree. Routh looks a solid 6'2.5" whereas Ramsey has 1/3" more footwear than Rob and still looks around 6'2" flat. He'd be about 6'1.75" without footwear advantage.
I've seen Ramsay and Routh at same event...I think there is a solid half inch or so between them, but because of Routh having hair and David having barely any, in person it might seem like an inch...

Ramsey is proof that 6'2 is tall no matter what. There's been way taller guys on Arrow throughout every season, yet I always consider Ramsey one of them. He just looks solid, solid tall all the time.

berta said on 21/Apr/18
you can see in photos of him and brandon routh that he is clearly shorter than routh. if routh is 189-190 then 188 is best listing for this guy
Zampo said on 6/Apr/18
Solid 6'2 IMO. I can see him dipping to 187.5cm. Good listing.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Mar/18
Not a hell of a lot between him and Brandon Routh in photos w/h Rob
Jordan87 said on 24/Jan/18
If he had 1/3" More Footwear, this puts him a shade under 6'2. He is not over 6'2, despite what he looks next to Amell, this picture takes precedence over what he looks with another Celeb, especially since the Postures here are good. Height Chart here is accurate.
Alex 6'3 said on 24/Dec/17
187-188 cm should be right
Slim 184 said on 8/Nov/17
He has about 4 Cm on 184.5 Stephen Amell so a 188.5 upgrade shouldn’t be ruled out.
Slim 6' said on 24/Oct/17
188.5 isn't impossible.
Canson said on 26/Sep/17
Bang on 188 with rob
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 24/Sep/17
He's not more than 188cm. He had 1/3" more footwear than Rob and his head still doesn't quite reach the 6'2" line, although he's hunching a bit. I'm thinking between 187.5-188cm for him.
Slim said on 23/Sep/17
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/17
He does look near 189cm
Ramsay is 188.5(6'2.25"). But 6'2" is still 6'2".

Amell could be a weak 6ft1 and Ramsey a strong 6ft2.
World Citizen said on 29/May/17
186 or 187 cm
Mark Vince said on 19/Apr/17
Looks right. One inch taller than Stephen Amel.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 17/Apr/17
Legit 6'2" person. I wouldn't be surprised if he's 6'2.25"
said on 24/Mar/17
@Rob: what's your normal low? 5'8" or 5'8 1/8?
Editor Rob: right on the 1/8th mark.
said on 22/Mar/17
@Rob Do you think 6ft2.5 is possible for Ramsey? He often looks a little more than an inch taller than 6ft1 Stephen Amell in arrow.
looks to have at least 1.5inch on him here, for example.
Google does list him as 188cm though and it's very rare that google lists anyone as being shorter than they really are...
Editor Rob: 6ft 2 1/8th and 6ft 0.75 for Amell might be arguable.
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
@Bobby: he's like both of us. Both strong 6'4" neither of us drop below 6'4
said on 25/Feb/17
rob you look taller than 5'8 in this pic ? you must be a guy who doesn't drop below 5'8 whats your low 5 '8.25?
Editor Rob: I won't measure under 5ft 8 if standing tall.
said on 23/Feb/17
ROB DONT YOU MEASURE CLOSE TO 5'9 IN THE MORNING?
Editor Rob: bobby, usually around 5ft 8.75 or 8 7/8th on best days.
berta said on 19/Feb/17
by looking at the phot i would think he could be 189 guy if measured but he had 1/3 inch more shoe. that means 188 is a good listing.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jan/17
Looks a good 1in taller than Amell whose at worst a weak 6ft1 guy.
Leonardo 1.73m said on 21/Dec/16
Yes, 6'2 with equal footwear, but he had 1/3 more than Big Rob
Anon2099 said on 11/Dec/16
I don't see how this guy could be anything under 6'2". Looks a solid 6'2 on screen and in this photo with Rob.
186cm said on 26/Nov/16
@booker 186cm is a joke for this guy. 187cm maybe at an absolute absolute low! 6'2 flat for sure. 186cm would make amell 6'0 flat lol which rob said it's "a near zero percent chance he (Stephen amell) is that low (6ft flat). At worst 6'1.75 range at night

SammySmith said on 16/Nov/16
Looks 6'3, compare him to Stephen Amell who is supposedly only 1 inch shorter.
Steve said on 15/Nov/16
I've always thought Ramsey was closer to 6ft3 than 6ft2! Having checked google it does say 6ft2 and I don't think google has ever UNDERestimated anyone, so I suppose 6ft2 is the max he could be! Absolute solid 6ft2 at that! It's obvious from his proportions and he always looks easily a good inch taller than 6ft1 Amell in Arrow.
said on 8/Nov/16
Rob where would a 182 cm person reach next to David?
Editor Rob: Ken, possibly half inch underneath his hairline.
Johan said on 20/Oct/16
6'2". Head is shaved and he could stretch out a bit more.
Brandon said on 18/Oct/16
said on 6/Oct/16
Rob, taller than a guy like Chaske Spencer?
Editor Rob: I think he would measure a bit taller.
S.J.H said on 28/Sep/16
In arrow or the flash i can't remember which episode but he look about 2cm shorter than brandon routh when standing close up. I did stick up with 6'1.75 not full 6'2

He's 74inches and looks fookin' hard!
pjk said on 11/Sep/16
Solid 6'2". Much taller than stephen Amell in Arrow ( at least 2" maybe more ).
Alex said on 28/Jun/16
Strong 187, weak 188 as his eye level suggest
Arch Stanton said on 26/Jun/16
Johno said on 8/Mar/16
See, that PROVES that you downgrade everybody Johno. The height chart here is as close as you'll get to proof that he's close to 6'2, so why are you claiming he is even under 6 ft 1 but for having a complex?
Crane said on 1/May/16
6'1.75 for sure. Jesus, just look at his arms!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Apr/16
I though 189cm was possible watching Dexter.
NBAer said on 21/Mar/16
Strong 187 or 6'1.75
Johno said on 8/Mar/16
said on 8/Mar/16
Rob, is 187cm possible?
Editor Rob: from watching the show I wouldn't have guessed sub 188cm, in fact I'd have said a solid 6ft 2 range, up close I think he is roughly 6ft 2, but not a 'big 6ft 2'
Born Again said on 23/Feb/16
This guy looks big, that's for sure.

hey rob, doesnt he look taller next to you than brandon routh?
[Editor Rob: I think he appears shorter than Routh looks, and david even has a bit more footwear thickness than me. Routh is a taller guy I believe.]

Looks like a 186-187cm guy here. Looks 188-189 with Amell though on Arrow.
PathfinderCC said on 27/Sep/14
very weak 6´2"
6´1.5- 6´1,75" evening
windx said on 25/Sep/14
This big guy has to weigh at least 240.
Judd said on 22/Sep/14
6'1.5-6'2...6'1" is out of my mind
The Shedder said on 17/Sep/14
Glover is nowhere 6'2 with Rob.
Alex 6'0 said on 12/Sep/14
Rob, minus the near 1/2 inch more footwear it appears you'd come up to just about his eye level. His eye level I think would have to be easily 5-5.25 for him to be even near 6'2. He does look a bit over 5 inches taller
said on 6/Sep/14
Yeah, but his "real" height is around 6'1.5... Arent you the guy who claims the lowest height you reach? When you saw him that day, you noticed he wasnt a big 6'2 or he still looked that to you?
[Editor Rob: because of his good posture he could still look near 6ft 2 that day.]
NickA said on 5/Sep/14
Rob, how tall do you think YouTuber Roman Atwood (left) is, considering that the guy on the right (Furious Pete) is allegedly 1,88 m?
said on 5/Sep/14
Fair doesn't mean he actually would measure about 188 at his lowest but i agree with the listing! Rob, you still consider the plumber a legit 6'2 but he is not :) I doubt he generally measures around 6'2 and that day he dipped half an inch under his usual low!
[Editor Rob: what I'm talking about is perception. Since I have mainly seen the Plumber in mornings/afternoons, compared to the measurement day at 6.30pm, my overall impression was that I'd seen him looking nearer 6ft 2. Sure, he might be 6ft 1.75 at lunchtime and with good posture passes for 6ft 2 quite easily.]
said on 5/Sep/14
Rob, this guy looks around an inch more taller than you than Danny Glover did I see
[Editor Rob: Glover is more of a safer bet being under 6ft 2. To be fair Ramsey does have good footwear advantage, I think around 6ft 2 is fair for him. ]
said on 3/Sep/14
Yeah, i've seen only a few episodes of Arrow but he can look 188-189 in the show, i actually thought 6'2.5 was possible! The fact is, and it's not the first time, that you list someone at 6'2 and say he's no taller than the plumber guy. Ok, the plumber can look 6'2 but he's not that tall!!!
[Editor Rob: yeah the plumber was surprised himself as he thought he was 6ft 2!]
said on 3/Sep/14
One thing is looking an height, another thing is being an height... I can believe the plumber generally is around 187 but hey he did measure 186.5 basically (if you take 1/8 inch away from his measurement)... I don't think it could be more than 3/4 mm than his normal low! You yourself list never dip below 173 and list at only 173! I was talking about the nearly 6'1.5 version of the plumber... If David measured 186.5, would you still keep him at 6'2 just because "he can look it"?
[Editor Rob: on the show I wouldn't guess him shy of 6ft 2, in person there is always a chance of being a fraction under but I'm not as sure on that, so would leave him 6ft 2.]
said on 3/Sep/14
Did he look taller than the 186.5 plumber in person? Just looking at their photos, they really don't look much different but David has more shoes... You think David could be half an inch taller?
[Editor Rob: not really, but then the plumber guy can look nearer 6ft 2 at times aswell.]
horacle said on 1/Sep/14
i thought he was at least 6'3 , maybe Amell is less than 6'1?
said on 31/Aug/14
Rob, you don't see possibly 6'1.5 without the footwear advantage? Looks more of a weak 6'2 guy
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't put a bet on 6ft 1.5, but near enough to 6ft 2 I think is a fair guess.]
Theo said on 30/Aug/14
He looks like 6'2.5 to me. Considering that Stephen Amell is most likely a legit 6'1, I think that Ramsey has about an inch and a half on Amell.
Alex 6'0 said on 30/Aug/14
6'1.5 prob without the footwear advantage
said on 28/Aug/14
Hi Rob..look at these pics: if you are 5'8'', how Colton could be the same, in comparison weith Ramsey??
[Editor Rob: within 5ft 8 range is ok I think for him.]
Hypado said on 28/Aug/14
David is 188/189cm, looks this in ARROW
IR said on 27/Aug/14
the other (Dave) Ramsey , is a money guy and stands about 5' 10".
said on 27/Aug/14
Just saying that link to David Ramsey's page on the "Latest Celebrity Photos"-section doesn't work.
[Editor Rob: ok thanks I fixed that link]
Ozark said on 24/Aug/14
Hes huge. I would have thought taller than 6'2 from seeing the pic on the first page.
Pool said on 23/Aug/14
187cm I see
said on 23/Aug/14
Maybe, that's because Amell isn't a legit 6'1 in reality? Anyway, after seeing him with you, i wouldn't rule out a fraction shy at worst, like 187. Is that possible?
[Editor Rob: nah I wouldn't rule out it out, but I think 6ft 2 is a fair shout if measured.]
Editor Rob said on 23/Aug/14
Andrea, on the show yes he can look a fraction over 6ft 2 with Amell, but in person he really didn't look it.
Mathew said on 21/Aug/14
Yeah he could pass for 189 with the footware advantage, so 188 makes sense.
Ras said on 21/Aug/14
I think he's 6'1.5 without the footwear advantage.
Sam said on 21/Aug/14
He looks a pretty strong 6'2" but his footwear is helping...formidable looking guy.
Andrea said on 21/Aug/14
Yeah, exactly what i thought! ;)
He has bit more shoe, though, so maybe could be a weak 6'2, Rob? To be fair i would have guessed him a strong 6'2 because he does look at least a solid inch taller than Stephen Amell, but then he might be 6'0.5-6'0.75 rather than a full 6'1!
