He’s downgrading himself which for a football player is rare. This mark is more likely than 6ft7 flat. 6ft6 is a joke. Just looks way too big to be just that

This is an accurate downgrade! Would be surprise to see if Peter Crouch and him who would edge out a fraction side by side. Def not a flat 6'7 guy and not 6'8 that Huge.

He actually claimed 6'7 on Twitter: Click Here
I'm not sure whether he really is as low as 6'7 flat, but maybe 6'7.5 is a better shout, to begin with?
Yes I'll mention that, I don't know if he is just that 6ft 7 flat though.

This guy also was in an episode of Dexter and he did look huuuge, not only height-wise (to the point that he was probably the only guy who managed to break free and escape from the infamous table 😂). 6'7-6'8 isn't impossible, but I certainly doubt he's any less than that. Here he is with MCH: Click Here

6'7 1/2 was possible.

Might fall a little shy of the 6ft8 mark possibly but he has to clear 6ft7
said on 14/Jun/18
Rob why would it benefit him to claim 6ft6?At that height he would still stick out and get big guy type of roles,6ft6 or 6ft8 guys are in the same boat when it comes to casting.
Plus in person he will look very tall, he won't full the guys who make auditions that he is only 6ft6.
Some people might round down to get seen for more roles, but it's more like an inch or so.

@Junior: another variable is what time the players wake up. Some of the combines I’m seeing now are eye opening measurements like 6am or 630. Johnny manziel tweeted at 7 something am after he had already been measured same with steph curry etc. what time the player wakes up has a lot to do with it along with if they lay down at some point before they’re measured. Laying down in the AM while still compressing brings it back up faster than if you’ve already compressed. I’ve noticed in recent years at least from seeing people post on other sites about NBA players such as Jae Crowder etc that they have met draymond is another example like you mentioned could look 196cm is prob correct both are prob 1/2” shorter than listed on pre drafts is about avg of what I see maybe 3/4 esp if there was some other type of boost a bust a gut hair or if they were say 6’5.53 could’ve gotten 6’5.75 like draymond got since NBA doesn’t do half inch increments. Meaning he may only be 6’5-6’5.25 at night even if he was measured 2 hours out of bed. It also helps they sleep at the facility so most likely don’t do much before going to the combine and at most lose maybe 1/4” or so maybe 3/8 before measuring

I doubted NFL measure every players in the morning but how early it is a question. All players should be down at their lowest 1-1.5cm, Willig is a big guy probably lost 3cm upon out of bed a day. He might be measure at 203cm morning and came a little under 202cm at his low.
Canson said on 2/Nov/17
@Christian yea looks closer to 6’7 to me too
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 21/Sep/17
I don't think he's as short as 199cm but I disagree with his 203cm listing here. 201cm is most likely.
Canson said on 21/Sep/17
@Ziggie: I saw 6'6.5 too
Ziggie said on 19/Sep/17
he's listed 199cm
Canson said on 6/Sep/17
Doubt 6'8. But people don't realize how tall 6'7" barefoot is. Look at Lebron most sssume he's a full 6'8 barefoot but that's his shoe height. Same with a Magic Johnson people assume they are taller than 6'7. This guy could be only solid if anything
Junior said on 23/Aug/17
Wikipedia and NFL.com had Matthew Willig @ 6-8. I believe he did measure this with or without shoes. But i did vote 6'8 for him.

Yea this guy is definitely more than a guy like Carmelo Anthony or Rob Gronkowski who are both strong 6'6" and about 6'6". He's gotta be at least 6'7"

He doesn't look taller than daniel cudmore frame from this PR Photo. Maybe he was only 6'7 like he claim on a video clip
said on 31/Mar/17
Rob, he claims 6'6" on his IMDB resume
I think he's rounded it down for trying to get work, with Worse posture
than Dalton he's still over 6ft 6.

He has that acromegaly look about him around the jaw. That jaw is usually a sign of excess growth hormone/growth in late puberty I think. Dennis Rodman and Khali have a similar look, though there's a touch of the Danny Tejo about this guy.
Canson said on 24/May/16
Yea I'm with Bobby on this one. He's more than 6'6". maybe not 6'8 but 6'7Ish maybe a weak 6'8". I wonder if he'd edge out someone like Kevin Love or Carlos boozer?
bobby3342 said on 31/Jan/16
yeah I'm sorry but when I saw the 6'6 listing I call bs because this guy dwarfs guys like barkley and kobe by at least 3 inches . good listing rob!

Strange he was shown to be around 6'6 1/2" on height chart on Dexter and is listed as that in other places on net. He is a cool proper giant with great proportions if is is really 6' 8". I did get the impression he was taller than 6'6" range on dexter.
Andrea said on 29/Dec/14
Yeah, he could be anywhere between 6'7 and 6'8...

Looks sub-listing here w/ Alan Alda and Jimmy Smits. Click Here
but Kevin Sorbo looks up at him here: Click Here
Dropping height & way taller still than Jason Lee & that other guy from My Name is Earl: Click Here
w/ David Giuntoli: Click Here
Generally does look 6'7"-6'8" range.
said on 27/Dec/14
Yeah, i saw that pic too... Timothy looks between 6'1 and 6'1.5 in Chuck, you think thats a big 6 inches difference? Timothy looks a bit under his eyes, but i guess he's gotta have a big eyelevel plus some height loss for posture 6'7-6'8 range seems ok!
[Editor Rob: I think he is nearly 6 inches taller, plus however much his stance might lose, which is always harder to tell exactly.]

A guy that tall and that jacked is about as common as a total solar eclipse
