Odell Beckham Jr's Height
5ft 11 ¼ (181 cm)
American football wide receiver who played for the New York Giants. He said in Mens Fitness "I'm not a huge guy. I'm not a big guy by any means. I'm 5'11", 6'0". People wouldn't believe, but I have 200 pounds behind me. It's a lot more weight than people would think."
. At the combine he was measured earlier in the day at 5ft 11 and ¼.

[I'm] Five-Eleven. I like to say I'm Six Foot, but..I probably lying if I say that. I broke my back when I was a sophomore in High-School and I never slept, so I think all of those combined probably got me to Five-Eleven. I could have stretched that Six-Foot...needed about 2 hours of sleep more a night.

Everyone here guessing him at shorter than 5’11 is crazy given how similar to nearly 6 feet Drake he always looks.
Aside from that, he always looks a little taller than 5’11 David Beckham, looks the same height as 6’0 listed Saquon Barkley (who might be closer to 5’11 to be fair), barely an inch shorter than 6’0 3/8 listed Baker Mayfield, and even surprisingly looked within an inch or less of Samuel L Jackson back in 2017 at the ESPYS
Only thing that gives me pause is how similar he looks to 5’10 listed ASAP Rocky, but I’m starting to think that he may be underlisted.
Good call on the 181, Rob. Combine measurements are usually done after some working out anyway, so it’s possible he’s more 182ish on a normal leisurely day.

@Animus: 5’11 flat would be a good fit for him. That’d be around his lunchtime.
said on 12/Dec/20
Rob, if a guy is 5'11¼ at night, meaning he's not below it at all on a normal day, would he most likely be listed at 5'11¼ or 5'11½? Obviously it would depend on how he looks, but assume he doesn't stick out either way. What I am asking is, is a guy like the one I described, most representative of the men in the 5'11½ bracket on this site or the men in the 5'11¼ bracket on this site?
he might get 5ft 11.5...
Canson said on 23/Nov/20
Rob alludes to earlier in the day. 5’10 7/8 afternoon and 5’11 lunchtime perhaps

Off-topic, but Zendaya’s hair doesn’t look how it usually does, to the point where I didn’t recognise her until I read the caption, and even then I didn’t believe it
Mimi said on 13/Nov/20
If he's about 6ft in shoes, then it's nigh impossible Zendaya is above 5ft9
Joseph177 said on 21/Jun/20
Legit 5'11. Near 182 cm out of bed. He might be 5'10 7/8 at his night low. May be 5'10 3/4 at night if he does a super intense workout.
Canson said on 21/Dec/19
5’10 7/8 at a low. 5’11 flat at lunchtime
Canson said on 7/Nov/19
@MD: I would say 6’0.25 is probably an afternoon height for Baker being 6’0 5/8 is his combine. 6’0 3/8 was his senior bowl which he was late arrival for so he measured a different time than everyone else. That’s if the combine didn’t change the number like some get
K.A 188 ! said on 18/Sep/19
I nearly thought i was reading the comment of a very height awared poster too...
viper said on 9/Sep/19
With the above long quote it's like he could be a poster here

"At the combine he was measured earlier in the day at 5ft 11 and ¼." so how tall in the evening ? 5'11 flat ?
He probably is 5ft 11 range afternoon to teatime.
Animus said on 20/Aug/19
Brandon LaFell was measured at 6'2½ at the NFL Combine. He is also listed as 6'3 on the official NFL website, so perhaps he really is 189cm?
Keep in mind LaFell is also closer to the camera and stands with better posture than Beckham in the picture.
If you see Odell Beckham next to David Beckham and Drake, it's pretty clear he is not below 5'11. In fact he often looks quite similar to Drake, so 181cm seems fair for Odell.

Odell with a measured 6'-3/8" Baker Mayfield:
This looks noticeably more than an inch-and-some-change difference.
said on 27/Nov/18
He looks shorter than 5-11 with 6-2 Brandon Lafell. Click Here
Canson said on 14/Nov/18
He’d probably be 5’10.75 or 5’10 7/8 at a low
Animus said on 28/Oct/18
Given how close in height he looks to Drake, I think this listing is fair.
Shae Norris said on 15/Oct/18
Can you do Warren Moon and Michael Vick?
said on 29/Jul/18
Rob, do you think he could have been taller had he lived a less punishing life style as a youngster? I don't think he could have gotten to 6'0, but maybe he could have reached 182cm.
Terrible sleep patterns might mean the body is being inhibited and not reaching it's full growing potential. How much though? The body has an ability to catch up with growth/development during periods it is being fed well and getting enough rest.
said on 27/Jul/18
What am I missing here? An early morning measurement and an admitted claim of just 5'11 and you still list him above this?
With Zendaya he doesn't at all look above 5'11
For his broken back he gets some leeway 😏
Canson said on 31/May/18
If it’s a combine measurement it would be about an hour after waking. 5’10.75-5’11 is where he would fall at a low. Nothing significant under 5’11 but he would likely dip under by at least 1/8”
sami said on 23/Apr/18
Rob, I think he's 2cm shorter than drake. That would make drake at exactly 6'0.
said on 5/Mar/18
Rob, can you make a profile for Saquon Barkley. He is a certain top 3 pick in the draft. Instagram has him at the same height as obj, but there’s also a pic of him with Jayz(no shoes) and is 2cm ish short.
MD said on 19/Feb/18
While their is definitely an angle to be accounted for, that certainly doesn't show and only 1.75" difference no matter which way you turn it. However, this can't be a definitive piece of evidence without a picture showing footwear.
said on 17/Feb/18
Rob,here's a picture of Odell with JuJu Smith-Schuster(6'1") Click Here
He barely looks 5'10" here.
I'd be surprised if thre wasn't a camera advantage for the guy on the right.
Brednan said on 4/Feb/18
I can seè him being 182 after 10 hours sleep
Bard said on 22/Dec/17
DruceLee said on 5/Dec/17
He deserved 182cm just because of honesty :D
said on 20/Nov/17
Rob you need to watch this video of him with F2 guys who are 5'8". He doesnt even look 5'11 here
skip to 0:37
Editor Rob: with low camera height he still looked over 2 inches taller from that clip.
Canson said on 5/Nov/17
5’10.75-5’11 at his lowest. 5’11.25 is a morning height
Foreveraverage said on 1/Nov/17
He was noticeably shorter than 5'11.5 Jimmy Fallon.
Canson said on 16/Jun/17
5'11 probably. Worst case maybe he dips to 5'10 7/8 evening

With 5 ft 10 Asap Rocky
Canson said on 28/Mar/17
Agree with rampage esp since they measure AM he's a solid 5'11" guy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Mar/17
Editor Rob: after a football match he might be under 5ft 11
Then I'd really list this guy 5ft11 flat. Maybe he got measured a fraction over earlier in the day.
Canson said on 10/Mar/17
5'11 at his lowest
CS said on 23/Jan/17
Completely agreed. Wise words indeed.
Arthur said on 22/Jan/17
Yeah CS, it's not just that his claim is honest, he gives some life lessons in the video, and he is perfectly right.
''Sometimes in life you are dealt with certain cards, you may have a bagooglety hand, but by any means you just make it work''
''Do I wish I could be taller? Yeah, I'd love to be taller. But I am not, so I don't worry about it.''
CS said on 21/Jan/17
Major respect for this guy after watching that video Arthur posted.
said on 19/Jan/17
Rob he has a great quote about height in this video, you may want to add that to the top. He claims 5'11, maybe you should give it to him Click Here
Guest66 said on 17/Jan/17
Damn this boy is honest, again how many don't claim 6 or 6'1 at his height ? Rob why 5'11.25 and not just 5'11 flat ?
said on 1/Nov/16
"Odell Beckham's Height is 5ft 11 1/8th in (180.7 cm)"
He's just barely taller than the guy whom he shares the same surname with, David Beckham Click Here
Brandon said on 22/Sep/16
He was measured predraft 5'11" and 5'11.25"
Brandon said on 14/Sep/16
Easy 5'11" guy
said on 9/Aug/16Click Here
he says he´s 5'11 in this video.
Rob at 18 years old how much can a person really can grow through prolonged exercising and stretching? And does stretching only improves your posture or actually improves barefoot height?
Canson said on 16/Jul/16
If that's morning it's likely he's 5'10.75 5'11 tops
said on 4/Jun/16Click Here
Rob Any idea on NFL CB Tyrann Mathieu looking at this video ? measured 5ft8.75 but was possibly a morning measurement could he be nearer 5'8?
Editor Rob: or 5ft 8.25 and it was an error?
Always a chance with thousands of readings taken, that the odd error creeps in.
I wouldn't have guessed him almost 5ft 9 in the clip, but 5ft 8-8.5 zone is more likely.
Sfs324 said on 29/Apr/16
Rob please take a lot at the commissioner Goodell. That will answer most NFL player heights past 06.
said on 27/Apr/16
He's the same height as David Beckham:
Sean73 said on 27/Apr/16
People have to remember that prospects at the combine, although they do get measured in the morning, sometimes at 4 to 6am at times, they don't get that much sleep. Some prospects because of high demand, like a quarterback or running back, probably get at the most 4 or 5 hours of sleep. Then their up at least two hours doing breakfast and interviews, then they get weighed and measured. On a regular day, Odell could be a flat six foot out of bed after 8 hours of sleep. These guys get up at 4am and get measured at 8 or 9am, so it's not the most accurate listing.
said on 27/Apr/16
Rob, if he was measured at 5'11 (180.5) maybe 2-3 hours after waking, surely he might wake up at 182 and drop to 179.5ish, thus making him more of a 179-180 guy?
Editor Rob: he might drop to 5ft 11 evening, all depends on when you get measured.
flamingo said on 26/Apr/16
I would say he is around 5' 11.5 straight out of bed, I imagine they take the combine heights at 9 am or around that time. 5'10.75 in the evening maybe.
RXH said on 25/Apr/16
I think you should put Cam Newton next...
The Tyger said on 25/Apr/16
If Odell is only a tiny bit over 5'11" than Drake needs a downgrade.
said on 25/Apr/16
[Editor Rob: after a football match he might be under 5ft 11]
if ur saying he's under 5'11, then y not list him at just 5'11" Flat?
Editor Rob: I'm saying the extreme low for football players can be 1/4 or 1/3rd inch under the usual lowest because of exertion involved.
sfs324 said on 25/Apr/16
Have a look at him with Harry Styles. Even on the field during Giants games (around 6pm) I don't see him being anything more than 5'10. He just gives off that impression to me.
182 cm said on 25/Apr/16
Yes it is a correct listing ... He was measured barefoot at the NFL combine.
MD said on 25/Apr/16
Given that this is a measured height, the only real debate is the time of day it was taken, and even that's known. In other words, this is probably the about the most he could be.
said on 24/Apr/16
Measured 5'11 even at nfl combine. Where did the quarter come from rob?
Editor Rob: there is a 5ft 11 1/4 listing out there supposed to be the combine measurement.
said on 24/Apr/16
Is 5'10.75 possible?
Editor Rob: after a football match he might be under 5ft 11
TJE said on 24/Apr/16
I figured he was just a regular 5'11, also I've heard the 11.25 measurement was done sometime in the morning.
