Fully agree with Rob's listing on this one. 5'9" (1.753 m) seems spot on. If there was a good photo of him and Bieber in similar footwear, than we'd know for sure whether Bieber's also 5'9".

He could be as low as 5’8 and Travis could be as high as 5’10.5.

He’s either 5’8.5 or Travis Scott is a full 5’10. Look at this photo; Click Here

3 inches shorter than Topher Grace in blackkklansman if you take that afro away lol. I doubt the 5'9.

A lot shorter than his dad.
I don't buy 5'9. A lot of 5'9ers look tall, he doesn't.
He's Kanye West height. 5'8.5"

John looks more like his younger brother than his son, at least age wise. It could be partly due to John's thick beard.

He was actually born when Denzel was nearly 30 in 1984, when his father was an obscure jobbing young stage actor. Denzel was really quite youthful looking for quite a while into his film career, he could've passed for mid 20s at times when he was around his mid 30s.
I think John David looks as you'd expect for nearly 36. His average range height may be more from his mother's side.

Looks pretty old to be Denzel's son. Either Denzel must've had him when he was very young, or that John just aged fast.

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.

It's nice to see the honesty of the NFL!

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

he looks shorter beside adam driver. i would have thought 174 at best.

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, would tony romo be similar to john as well? he doesnt seem to be 6'2 even he was measured at it
said on 30/Dec/17
With 6'5'' Omar Benson Miller 6'8.5'' Chris Andersen and 6'2.5'' Dwayne Johnson
said on 30/Dec/17
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.
RP said on 29/Dec/17
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.
