I was going to say he looked five ten next to Denzel Washington though coming to thinking about it and after seeing a few more pictures of him, and Denzel that's how my dad and I in some pictures there's a big difference and some where we look close, and my dad is five eleven and three quarters and I'm five nine though it could be possible that my dad is anywhere between 5'11 1/4 and 5'11 3/4 and myself between 5'8 1/2 and 5'9. Though from doing your measurement method I'm five nine and five eighths in the morning and five eight and seven eighths sometimes five eight and three quarters at night. So yeah I would guess five nine.

Tony Romo is actually like 6'2.5 he is much taller than Aaron Rodgers who is 6'1.3 they always try to make everyo seems like they are the same height. I am not a Cowboys fan just saying. I say 5'8.5 is right for J.D Washington

Easily a true 5'9" man.

Commenting late, but agreed. I think he’s more 5’8.5” than 5’9.

Honestly doesn't really look taller than Omari Hardwick, here:
And, honestly, in his new film I see they often tried to downplay his average-ish height, but he still came across looking kind of short. He's definitely 5'9" at the absolute most, I'd estimate.

rob, his scout height measurement says its 5'10 how come you put him as 5'9
Editor Rob: doesn't look that tall with denzel.

He's probably not 5-10 because he was still being described as 5-9 this year but a bit over 5-9 isn't impossible.

Hmmm?...just did some research ...and JDW on NFL Draft Scout has a Pro Day measurement listed @ 5'10" & 200 lbs

Thanks. Doesn't seem like he inherited much of Denzel's height, though admittedly I don't know how tall his mom is.
Editor Rob: Denzel's wife looks average height range.
