Kobe bryant have to be 6'5.75 for peyton manning to be 6'5.25 while there is visible 1cm or 1/2" between them

How tall would someone have to be for it to be worth comparing with Yao?
Grant said on 30/Sep/16
He looks a solid foot if not more shorter than Yao Ming considering Yao ming likely has a 10+ inch head. But is comparing with giants like Yao even worth it?
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 29/Sep/16
Legit 196 cm guy, as listed.
Bard said on 27/Sep/16
He's looking kinda short here. Listing seems accurate though :P

JJ is closer to the camera. However a cm taller yes but not 3,4cm taller
Nck said on 16/Sep/16
Im sorry not let this one slide, here it is, theres at least 5cm difference, Manning standing next to JJ Watt Click Here JJ Watt is obviously taller, Manning is looking 192cm
Canson said on 14/Sep/16
@Nck: well maybe you use a different tape measure than I do or a cm is different that side of the Atlantic. If you look correctly he looks 1-2 cm and that includes his hair. Sorry but Manning is at least 195 still. They are almost the same height in other pics. You aren't very good with telling differences it appears
Nck said on 13/Sep/16
excuse me you honestly see a cm in that video you posted? do you know what a cm looks like :) well I'm from europe and let me tell you there's at least 4 or 5 of them cm, so JJ can definitely be 196cm but Manning isn't
Canson said on 5/Sep/16
@Nick: this is a better pic of Peyton and JJ no distorted view and side by side. They are almost the same (JJ has him by about a CM). Peyton wasn't measured with shoes he was a strong 6'5 in his prime. He edges out a Tom Brady (brady is as listed confirmed by Brad and Bobby3342).

Canson said on 5/Sep/16
@Nick: go look at the Papa Johns commercials from last year with Joe Montana and JJ and Peyton. 4-5cm? Peyton isn't 192 or 193. You saw that? I don't for sure. I'd say if anything Peyton is 195 now a days Watt is Christian's height at 196. On a side note tho I did have a friend who is 6'2 tell me he fought Peyton was 6'4 and change and while I didn't agree before I can now as he likely met him after injuries set in but 6'4 and change is extreme. I'd go with almost 6'5.
NIck said on 4/Sep/16
according to these commercials and some pics Manning looking at least 2" or about 4/5cm shorter than JJ Watts hence if JJ Watts is 196cm Manning can't be more than 192cm/193cm tops. Maybe Manning measurement was taken with shoes on.
Click Here stop at 1.06 Click Here stop at 0.57

He is shorter than JJ Watt (6'5 3/8 combine) in this pic and at the Espys. That'd likely put Watt as a solid 196 (at best) at his lowest since combine measurements are held earlier in the day. Don't doubt Peyton was a legit 196 in his prime but today can see him under 6'5 barefoot but absolutely no less than 195cm either
Canson said on 28/Aug/16
@Christian: I agree with you 100%. And in his prime he'd have been close in height with you. He was at his low prob a legit 196 and today with the age and injuries may only be 195 flat (he looks similar to Kobe) and also Cam (who may fall to 195 as well$

Rob, is it possible Archie Manning could be 6'2.75 then 6'3?
Editor Rob
yeah he could be that zone.
Canson said on 1/Aug/16
@Crypto: I agree on that. Doesn't look taller for Sure
Canson said on 29/Jul/16
@175 and Rob: 6052. 6'5.25"
Crypto139 said on 28/Jul/16
Well he looks no taller than Bryant right now. Perhaps a bit shorter. Though he has played Football for over 20 years, while having neck surgery 4 times! Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if he lost a bit of height.
Canson said on 25/Jul/16
@Shane: the more and more I think about it, you have a really really good point about your measurement too! At my peak I was prob close to 6'5.25 maybe a mm below it and went to bed around 6'4.5 or a mm below and got 6'5 from most (still do today at 6'4 3/8). It's true that many people would measure AM and not think much of it (meaning outside this site). And especially if you're a still around 6'1.5 afternoon or late day you'd be within range to round so you prob would appear 6'2 and esp if in a higher shoe would prob always get it or even a full 6'3"
Canson said on 25/Jul/16
@175: my suspicion is he has lost height or wasn't standing straight or that Kobe had a slim footwear advantage. I have always had Kobe 194-195 range around maybe 6'4 1/2 maybe 5/8ish but possible he is a full 3/4 and that manning lost some height along the way. He was in papa johns commercials with JJ watt and looked shorter. Keep in mind Watt was 6'5 3/8 and that's likely a morning measurement as well. He looked a hair shorter tho so maybe 1/4" or so. I can see if Eli measured what he did Kobe being his height more than Peyton.
Borats Chicken said on 25/Jul/16
Rob, what is his shoulder length, looks narrow and small.
Canson said on 5/Jul/16
I stand corrected he was measured 6'6 3/8. Interesting Mike glennon shows a 6'7 1/8 measurement but is listed at 6'6. Wonder if he asked to be put there (I saw he almost didn't play football in high school because he was too tall for the school's regulation or if they measured him just over 6'7 early in the AM and got maybe 6'6.5-.75 another time. He's actually from my hometown in Virginia
Canson said on 24/Jun/16
Btw the 6063 for flacco is 6'6 1/4. They round up. I've heard many people who have met Flacco in person describe him as 6'5-6'6. Meaning he likely drops below the 6'6 mark but he has a long torso. Conceivably could see 197 cm at his lowest
Canson said on 24/Jun/16
@RP: yep also prob why he has claimed 6'5.5 before and why the listed below Brad guessed him 6'5 1/2. No real difference between 3/8-1/4-1/2
RP said on 22/Jun/16
Spot on! Peyton had pre draft meaurements in 1998 at the NFL Combine of 6'5-1/4" and a his Pro Day of 6'5-3/8" !!! Perfect listing!
Canson said on 21/Jun/16
The 6'5.25 was prob his afternoon measurement may now only be 6'5 or lower afternoon (JJ Watt has him by a hair in the Papa Johns Comm). I have to honestly say I'd buy 6'5 7/8 out of bed maybe 6'6 in his prime especially when he said 6'5 1/2 before
Shane said on 3/May/16
Out of bed height is full height so why anyone would count a lower than maximal legit height is beyond me.
Jake the snake said on 25/Feb/16
Take away the forehead and he's 6 feet even
Crypto139 said on 4/Feb/16
@John Click Here
Yeah NFL is random with their rounding at times you know. I believe a player can claim their height as they choose to a certain limit, though the NFLdraftscout heights are usually right. Peyton also possibly wears boots as well, just saying.
John said on 2/Feb/16
I doubt Eli is 195cm.
1.He consistently looks 2-3cm shorter than 196cm Peyton.
2. If Eli was actually measured at 6' 4.75", his listed height would have been rounded up to 6' 5". But he's listed at 6' 4". So that should tell you he's around that listing.
I would put him at 193 or 194.
I would estimate him at 193 or 194.
Crypto139 said on 31/Jan/16

If eli Manning the tallest one is 195 cm tall. How tall is Odell Beckham Jr? Listed as 181 cm but looks alot shorter than that. He is standing to the left of Eli in our perspective.
Dave189 said on 13/Dec/15
Rob, what do yout think, how tall Aaron Rodgers is? When you search for "Aaron Rodgers height" on google it shows he's really sensitive about his height and other people commenting it....and when you take a look at his pictures with Brett Favre who's a legit 6'2'' you can obviously see the difference in height at least by an inch...
Editor Rob
I read the page, I think it's a bit of humour, I doubt he's really that sensitive. But then, how many want to be told they are smaller than they thought? On the combine he was supposed to have been measured bang on 6ft 2!

On a side note, when you start worrying too much about what others think, you become more restricted in life and don't take chances or do things that YOU love out of fear at what 'so and so will think'.

Canson said on 25/Nov/15
@Chubby Checker:

The combine measurements are not gospel and shouldn't be considered as such. We don't know whether they are in shoes or not. From my knowledge of the practice squad, Some are and some aren't.

I agree tho about flacco. He probably is actually 6'6 as I think more height for him actually hurts him as a QB. We saw Brock osweiler get downgraded from 6'8 to 6'7 after it was revealed he was in shoes previously and is only 6'6 7/8 barefoot. Same with Cam Newton where he was billed 6'6 and is now 6'5. Don't know with Peyton though. He may have been 6'4 and change and they may have measured him in shoes and given him 6'5 or it's possible he was referring to him being 6'6 when he is in shoes. Either way I've heard him now say 6'4 6'5 and 6'6.
ChubbyChecker said on 4/Nov/15
You're wrong about Flacco. Hes a solid 6'6 measuring 6'6 3/8 barefoot.

And Peyton was measured at 6'5.25. He didnt ask for it.
Crypto139 said on 26/Oct/15
Hey Rob what would you say Peyton Manning's head length and eye level is? Just wondering.
Editor Rob
I had a look and possibly a little over 10 inch with equal eye-top head and eye-chin, but he has a higher hairline now, which just accentuates his forehead more.
joe said on 11/Aug/15

Crypto139 said on 7/Aug/15

Looks 6 feet 6 next to Lebron. Maybe he did ask to be put as 6 feet 5 and he is really 6 feet 6. It explains why he looks a bit taller than Eli even though they are listed as only a half inch apart.
Chris said on 3/Aug/15
He said he was just over 6'6 when he was drafted. He asked the NFL to put his height at 6'5 though.

You don't have to see many pictures to see he's at least 6'5. He's at least an inch taller than Kapaernick and Brady and 2 inches taller than Troy Aikman
C said on 16/Jul/15
He is definitely at least 6'5 I would believe his 6'5 1/2 claim
Jake said on 31/Mar/15
Rob, how tall do you think Tony Romo is? He's listed as "6'2". But he seems more "6'1". What do you think?
SportsHeight said on 29/Mar/15
Rob, Tom Brady was measured at 6'4.375" at the 2000 NFL Combine. This measurement was presumably taken either in the late morning or the early afternoon. Using the site's quarter-inch system, would you list him at 6'4.25" or 6'4.5"?
Editor Rob
6ft 4.25
BorkLaser said on 22/Mar/15
To put an end to any and all claims of him being anything below 6'4", here he is with Hulk Hogan, who's listed here at 6'3" Click Here
Crpto139 said on 19/Feb/15
Well jameis Winston and Marcus Maritoa are the exact same height at 6 feet 3 3/4. According to the draft combine.
Matrix1 said on 16/Feb/15
I have met flacco in person. He is more 6'5 (6'5-6'5.25) than 6'6+. That was probably with shoes. I'm just under 6'5 (6'4 5/8) and I saw close to an inch not 2.
Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" said on 30/Jan/15
A friend of mine from Idaho has met John Elway, and he said that he's 6'1" or 6'2" (and has said that I'm taller than him), so I don't think that he was ever 6'3". I'm certainly not past 6'3", or even 6'3".
Alex 6'0 said on 30/Jan/15
Eli at 6'4 3/4 still gets listed at 6'4 and Ben at 6'5 yet both guys were measured just about the same. Ben 6'4 7/8 and Eli 6'4 3/4 but because they were more morning measurement you can knock off 1/8-1/4 to get their evening height prob.
Mathew said on 13/Jan/15
[Editor Rob: I think with the draft measurements over last number of years it's harder to get dodgy listings, but it's interesting to see that fella admitting his was fibbed 2 inches!]


Players who come in the league now are easier to smoke out. But even as recently as a guy who came up in 2003 - Rob Mathis always gets listed as 6'2". But he claims to be 6'0" in his twitter bio, and sure enough he's towered by 6'4" Andrew Luck Click Here
Crypto139 said on 12/Jan/15
Well I think he came out in the early 80s and also he wasn't in the real draft either. He was in some sort of developmental kind of thing. I think they started to do the 1/8 inch thing probably around the time they started to count the 40 times electronically, which was in 1999.
Crypto139 said on 11/Jan/15
Excuse me on the last post but I realize Young himself stated 6 feet 3/4 not just 6 feet even. It also makes the 6 feet 2 in shoes claim real as well.
Crypto139 said on 11/Jan/15
Well I was right about Steve Young looking just 6 feet. Click Here

In his story he wrote himself he said he is really 6 feet even but he wrote 6 feet 2 because well he wanted to be 6 feet 2. It was just his height in shoes. So I guess I am good at guessing a guys height :p

So it does show that some other guys are shorter than they claim I guess.

Crypto139 said on 20/Dec/14
You know after checking to see more pictures of both Eli and Peyton, I can believe Eli is about 6 feet 4 3/4 now. He looks about 1/2 shorter than his Brother.
Uh-Oh said on 7/Dec/14
Rob are these heights based on their morning estimates, average or evening height?
Alex 6'0 said on 6/Dec/14
Crypto, also those measurements are done in later morning so you can knock off 1/8-1/4 inch id say to get their low. Eli and Ben are measured within 1/4 of each other but Eli rounded down to 6'4 and Ben rounded up to 6'5. Eli more a legit 6'4.5 prob?
Crypto139 said on 26/Nov/14
@Alex 6'0

Well 6046 means 6 feet 4 3/4 basically, but he doesn't look that compared to his brother I think, unless his brother is more 6 feet 5.5 imo
Alex 6'0 said on 30/Oct/14
Mathew, yea he def looks a legit 6'5. Even if that 6'5.25 was in the AM it wasn't out of bed. Eli was measured 6046 it says but whats that in height? 6'4 5/8?

Clay said on 25/Sep/14
Gretzky is 5'11, and he has even said this himself despite being listed at 6'0''.

Ovechkin - 6'1.5
Crosby - 5'9.5

Hockey listings can be bad as well.
Alex 6'0 said on 4/Aug/14
Ben Roethlisberger was measured 6'4 7/8 and since these measurements are in the morning(not out of bed though) his low would prob be 6'4.5-6'4.75 range
Crypto139 said on 11/Jul/14
Well I found other pics of Jordan next to Gretzky-Elway and I guess Jordan is 6 feet 5 exactly. He was slouching in the picture I showed.
Crypto139 said on 10/Jun/14
While Gretzky looks to be about 182 cm tall there, he is closer to the camera. So he could be under 182 if Jordan really is 6 feet 4.5 and not taller.

But Look at Elway and Jordan again. Now Jordan is listed at 6 feet 5 on here but Manning is listed at 6 feet 5.25 on this site as well.

Click Here

Now on my last post you can see Elway is just below Jordan in height. But on here he is WELL below Manning's height. I remember hearing people start shrinking at 40. Every decaded after 40 until 70 you shrink 1 cm on average if male I believe. A person also is 1/8 of an inch shorter when they turn 40 on average according to another source I heard of.

If Elway follows a normal pattern could be 1.5 cm short than he was at peak these days.

Still he looks too short next to Manning for Jordan and Manning to be the same height. Also Drew Bledsoe is listed at 6 feet 5 but is taller than Manning. Is this another one of these Favre, Montana, and Young comparisons. Except they are all listed at 6 feet 5 instead of 6 feet 2.
Crypto139 said on 7/Jun/14
Wayne Grekzky looks to be quite a bit shorter than 6 feet 3 John Elway and 6 feet 5 Michael Jordan on here. What does everyone elso think besides the fact that Elway is very close to Jordan on here.

Crypto139 said on 7/Jun/14
Yeah I am almost sure Manziel is done growing at that age. By the way though I always wanted to know the height of someone else that has never been talked about on this site. How tall is the great Wayne Gretzky? You know the best hockey player ever. He is listed at 6 feet even on 90 percent of all sites but some list him as 5 feet 11. I am shocked no one has ever talked about him to be honest.
MrTBlack said on 5/Jun/14
Johnny Manziel is done growing. I've had a few friends who finished growing at 18-19 but never anyone older than that. The rare cases of men growing taller after late teens are usually fables or extreme rare exceptions.
Mathew said on 1/Jun/14
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 27/May/14
Will Johnny Manziel still grow? He's only 21 which means that he hasn't reached the full deadline yet.


Probably not. While it's true that sometimes a man will grow in their early 20s it's rare.
Alex 6'0 said on 22/May/14
Wilson was 5'10 5/8. Shortest QB to win a superbowl. It was Dree Brees before that.
Crypto139 said on 21/May/14
Wait was it 5/8s or 7/8s for Wilson. I have heard both from major sport sources and it seems to be kind of crazy to me that they can have him vary so much.

Whatever. Doesn't matter is he is 178 , 179, or 180 cm tall. He is still the shortest starting QB in the nfl at all there of those heights.
Alex 6'0 said on 19/May/14
Russel Wilson was measured 5'10 5/8.
Mathew said on 18/May/14
Also Manzell nowhere near 6'4". He measured just shy of 6 foot. And Luck is way more than .75" taller than RG3 Click Here Click Here Click Here
Mathew said on 18/May/14

Peterson actually does sometimes get listed at 6'2": Click Here
Crypto139 said on 17/May/14
Well I guess that explains the whole Favre, Montana, and Young debate, and explains why both Randy Moss and Tom Brady are listed at 6 feet 4 when one is an inch taller than another. Also why is Russell Wilson being listed a 5 feet 10 when he is like a solid 180 cm or 5-10 7/8 tall guy(at least he was measured that early on.)

Seems to be somewhat random to me and also they seem to downgrade all the qbs(expect for Steve Young)
Alex 6'0 said on 11/May/14
Drew Brees was measured 6'0.25. Prob more 6'0 flat since the measurement is around 11am so ive heard. If you're up 3-4 hours you'd prob lose no more than 1/4 inch by your low
Alex 6'0 said on 11/May/14
Ben Roethlisberger was measured 6'4 7/8 just 3mm below 6'5. Depending when the measurements are. If they are in the morning 2-3 hours after waking a worst he may dip to 6'4.5-6'4 5/8. His low may be 6'4.75
Alex 6'0 said on 11/May/14
Does anyone know when the combine measurements are? Morning, afternoon, evening? Even if its morning its def. not out of bed so they've lost some height anyway by time they get measured.
Crypto139 said on 9/May/14
Well it seems some nfl players get either upgraded or downgraded for what ever reason. Moss is 6 feet 3 3/8 and Brady is 6 feet 4 3/8 but both are listed at the same 6 feet 4 inch height. So things can be crazy sometimes. Difference is small but a little above 191 cm vs a bit below 194 is a difference.
Crypto139 said on 30/Apr/14
Compared to Drew Brees Romo is not that much taller than him.
He looks like he could be just above the height of Steve Young(Around 6 feet 0 3/4 inches at Young's low is my guess.) and for Romo about 1 more cm.
Crypto139 said on 29/Apr/14
Here is my Opinion.

Joe Montana 187 cm
Aaron Rodgers 187 cm
Brett Favre 189 cm
Steve Young 184 cm
Crypto139 said on 22/Apr/14
Also how tall is Brett Favre. He seem to be almost an inch taller than Aaron Rodgers. Also Rodgers and Joe Montana is pretty much the same height, as I saw at the award show. Another thing is Steve Young looks shorter than both Rodgers and Montana. Heck Young seemed to be Edged out by 6 feet 1 Ray Lewis on ESPN. Also Favre, Rodgers, Montana and Young are all listed at 6 feet 2. I Wonder which one is really 6 feet 2?
MD said on 8/Apr/14
If you're calling into questions professional measurements into question - some of which are before cameras - I really don't know what to tell you. There might be a few mis-measures during these events, but they are the rule and not the exception, and they probably aren't that big of a mis-measure. You're essentially implying a conspiracy. If you're going to doubt an event like the combine to the degree that you are, then you shouldn't believe ANY other evidence presented on this website, pictures, vids, whatever.
MD said on 2/Apr/14
@Inches, I've kind of worried about Seahawk, lately. He seems to be quite a bit more out there than before, and I'm not sure what happened. I'm concerned; a lot of his estimates are completely non-sensical, and I'm not just talking a difference of opinion, but listing people three and five inches off their mark.
Inches said on 31/Mar/14
@Alex Height is likely measured a couple hours after waking and definitely before noon. The NFL combine is held in the morning (9am ET) and prospect measurements are taken during event. Brees is probably close to 6' in evening. 5-11.75 is likely
Alex 6ft 0 said on 31/Mar/14
Drew Brees was measured at 6'0.25 I believe? Peyton was measured 6'5.25 I read. Roethlisberger was measured 6'4 7/8. These measurements I am not sure on what time of the day they are. Its certainly not out of bed height or evening. Likely midday?
Inches said on 29/Mar/14
@Seahawksfan Johnny Manziel at 6-4.25!! Try 5-11.5. Some of your estimates are good but others are way off. Foles is more of 6-4.5. Brady measured 6-4 3/8 at the combine therefore no way is he as low as 6-3.25. There is a little over an inch of difference between Brady and Manning.
Crypto139 said on 28/Feb/14
Well Johnny Manziel height has been confirmed. 182 CM tall or 5'11.75".

Looks like there is another qb under the 6 even mark now! Also bridgewater is 6 feet 2 and bortles is a 6 feet 5 guy.

Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 21/Oct/13
Matthew, I hear these combine measurements are in the morning? Even if so it wouldn't make them at their out of bed height. It could be pretty close to their low if its midday


Yeah if it's done around 11 am - noon range or so many of the guys will be no more than 1 cm over their absolute lowest height. I saw a video of the NBA measurements with Blake Griffin, and he practically rolled out of bed and got measured. Not sure if it's the same with the NFL.
Randomsauce said on 21/Oct/13
Looks more like 6'5.5". 6'6" in his prime.

Mathew said on 26/Sep/13
@Mike 181 - They are a bit inconsistent with what they do with fractions. You occasionally guys who have a .25" at the end of their measurement rounded up and some guys with a .5" on their measurement rounded down. Every once in a while guys can even get upgraded or downgraded by a whole inch of more (when this happens it's usually upgraded, but a select very few players are listed short too). The NFL in general is more accurate than the MLB, and obviously much more than NBA. Most likely if they measured you at 5'11.5" you would be listed at 6'0".

Peyton is 6'5.25" and a great quarterback.
Mike 181 said on 12/Sep/13
If your over a height in the nfl they'll round you up for example you'll see jimmy Graham listed at 6"7 when really he was measure 6"6.25 at the combine. I guess they'd possibly list me at 6"0 if they measured me at around 5"11.5...
Rusty said on 24/Aug/13
Most NFL measurements are done in the combine which is a couple hours after players wake so their measurements are slightly higher than Rob wants them to claim. If 6'5.25" was earlier in the day he likely drops to 6'5" flat.
Mathew said on 18/Aug/13
Measured 6'5.25" and is. This photo is one of the rare instances of Manning looking no more than 6'4.5". Click Here #11 was 6'5" listed (rumored to be closer to 6'6") #12 was listed at 6'3" (could be just a fraction under that though).
Sam said on 7/Aug/13
I'm told I look like him, but he might be one cm taller than me. I would trade some more height though to have his throwing arm from 8 years ago.
tape measure said on 26/Jul/13
I saw an interview tonight with Kurt Warner intervewing Peyton. I believe Warner is 6-3, and Manning looked to be a couple inches taller. So, yeh, I'd say Peyton Manning is about 6-5+. I thought I heard several years ago that he is 6-6, so that's pretty close.

Joe Flacco is the tallest QB in the league for sure. Hes listed at 6'6 but was measured at 6'6.63 which is roughly what 6'6 5/8? Now thats pretty tall

Peyton Manning always apear solid 1.5" taller than 6'4 listed Tom Brady. either Peyton is 6'5.5 or brady is 6'4 or Peyton-Manning is what he say he is 6'5.5 and brady a chance 6'3.5 not over.


While I've seen that Brady measured 6-4 3/8 and Manning 6-5 1/4 I would say that you're right in saying Brady can look shorter. The old Patriots QB before Tom Brady always looked 2" taller than him, but was only listed at 6-5.

According to nfl draft. Russell Wilson was measured a legit 5'11".


1/8" is easily within normal measurement variation so he could have measured 5'11" legit somewhere. His proday/combine said 5-10 7/8: Click Here

@Nate - Peyton said he was 6'5" in the commercial and he's taller than Brady for sure. They measure the guys before they're drafted Peyton measured 6-5 1/4 and Brady measured 6-4 3/8. For reference, Randy Moss measured 6-3 3/8 and Brady always looked taller. This year's QB draft class had Robert Griffin III measured 6-2 3/8, Andrew Luck measured 6-4, and Russell Wilson measured 5-10 7/8.
Nate said on 19/Nov/12
Manning did a commercial about five or six years ago and said he was 6'4". You shouldn't rely on what he told the papers when he was a rookie. I'm a huge pats fan and if he and brady changed uniforms you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Both 6'4"give or take half an inch.

My uncle has worked in NFL scouting for years. He was with The Miami Dolphins when Jimmy Johnson was the HC & also when Dave Wannstedt was the HC '96-'03. After Dave was fired he worked with Parcells in Dallas for a couple of seasons. And he is now a scouting advisor for the Carolina Panthers. And he had & has all kinds of scouting info and physical results from all NFL teams. I also played football in college from '94-'97 at WVU & spent one camp with the Carolina Panthers before getting cut. I then played a few seasons of Arena League Football. So, him & I are both sports & football nuts. And measurables geeks...guess that's why I work in engineering & geology now?...LOL!

You are correct Matthew....Dolphins did measure Moss at 6'3 3/8".....the 6'3 5/8" was a typo by me. Everyone else had him anywhere from 6'3 3/4" to 6'4". So,...I gotta assume Other teams & his proday where morning workouts...and Miami must have worked him out & measured him in the evening.

Okay, that makes sense. It's kind of funny how they try to call him 6'5" durring games sometimes. Out of curiousity, where do you get the team measurements from? That's good information.

These guys get measured in the morning but could be withina couple hours of waking so they wont be at their maximum height anyway. Probably around 1/4 inch less. You'll lose 1/4 inch fast after waking up I think.

3/4 = .7, .8
7/8 = .9

Anonymous said on 19/Jan/11
Viper no you're wrong. Heights are to the nearest 1/8 at the combine and then rounded up. 6'4 1/4=6'4.25 which rounds up to 6'4.3. 6'4 3/8 would= 6'4.375 which would be 6'4.4.

I assume it means 6'4 1/4", 211 lbs. If he really is that tall, he doesn't have the best posture. He looks more like 6'3" a lot of the time around other guys.

Actually Combine stats, except for the 40 yards time, are very accurate. I was unfortunate to assist the 2008 combine, and let me tell you, these kids are treated like cattle. As for Brady's combine height, he was listed at 6.046. That's 6'4". I don't know how much the "6" stands for. By the way, the USA needs to adopt the metric system.

JD said on 9/Feb/09
The Marino-Montana comparison is completely relevent. Theyre comparable players from a different era. Marino being the one who can't win in playoff games, and Montana Being the one who can.

As for the Patriots winning because of defense, I dont disagree that they had a solid defense. But regardless of that, Brady still had to march them back on several occasions in the dying moments of a postseason (esp suberbowls) to be in a position to win.

When has Manning truly done that in the playoffs versus his donks? As far as skill set goes, I'd be alright for saying they're on the same level, but as far as being clutch, and poised, Manning can't compete with Brady at all, and that just happens to be one of the most important assets a QB can have
brotha said on 23/Jan/09
JD, your argument has many flaws. The Patriots D and Bellicheck is what made NE great all those years along with Brady of course, but mainly the D. The Colts had no D except for two undersized DE's and. Also yeah, Harrison was a burner a few years ago, but the Colts always had undersized recievers that used to get held and bullied in the playoffs. Look at this year, the Colts would have been lucky to win 4 games without Manning, he seriously willed the Colts to at least 8 wins this year by taking them down the field in the 4th quarter. Not to mention the Colts small receivers were dropping balls and had trouble getting open and of course absolutely no running game. Manning had to make many risky plays to put the Colts in a position to win and he succeeded. Compare that to NE this, Brady get's injured but the Pats still win 11 games, because of their coach (D schemes) and Cassel's stability. All I'm saying is in terms of who's better Arguments can be made for both. And yeah I think Manning did get a superbowl when the D decided to play, so the Marino Montana comparo is irrelevent to the Manning/Brady debate. Manning=Brady for now, let's see yrs from now what their full careers are exposed.

Sorry for being offtopic but I would like to add some pro-Manning food for thought on his page. Then again there is no question about his listed height so what else to we have to discuss? :)
JD said on 19/Dec/08
clay, have you followed the nfl since the year 2000? Last I checked Brady can actually win playoff games. Not to mention Manning has had Harrison his entire life, with james as halfback for the brunt of time. in addition theyve had clarke and wayne. offensively manning has always had multiple weapons. take a look at the patriots when they won their superbowls, they had weak running game, one above average reciever. That taken into consideration, they still won those superbowls, and knocked off the colts more than once. In my eyes, and the eyes of the majority, quarterbacks are measured primarily on whether or not they can win, and whether or not they can win superbowls. Would you rather have Dan Marino or Joe Montana? I'll let you decide

Most linemen are at least 6'1. Rarely do you see them 6'0 or less.

Most corners are 5'10, 5'11 so yes its average for that position. Running backs range from 5'6-6'4 so 5'10'' could be seen as average though most of them are at least 5'11'' today. Though over 6'1'' for a running back is rare and un conventional but Brandon Jacobs at 6'4'' is a horse, I wish we had em in Seattle. Most safeties are 6'0, give or take an inch. Outside linebackers are 6'2-6'3 on average and 5'10'' is dwarf-like at on the offensive and defensive lines, you just dont see it.
Alex said on 2/Dec/08
5'10 for a RB is average and its a good height for one but for a CB 5'10 is a bit short since you'll have WRs 6'2 or taller sometimes. A good height for a CB would be 6'1-6'2 I think especially when you gotta guard someone 6'3-6'5.
Viper said on 1/Dec/08
A 5-10 running back or corner is average in the NFL.
t.j said on 1/Dec/08
All NFL players heights are verified to the 8th of an inch at the NFL combine, Senior All-Star games, and Pro Days. 6'5 1/2 sounds good to me. And 5'10 is short for the NFL, unless you are a runningback. At corner is short, but not short enough to really hold you back. And the average man 18-35 can run a 40 in under 6 seconds. To run a 4.5 takes a ton of natural ability. If a reciever runs a 4.6 at the combine, he is probably running a 4.9/4.8 during the season. I ran a 4.8 thoughout all of college and at my Pro Day (I was a long shot even for CFL, and I'm Canadian) I ran a 4.58. Preperation is how these guys run so fast

As for 5'10" in football, it can be quite average pending the position. For example, 5'10" for a RB or a safety isn't out of the ordinary at all. However, 5'10" for a QB or the OL/DL is basically shrimp like.

Jake Is Back said on 25/Apr/08
Bledsoe could possibly be 6'6". He towered over listed 6'2" Steve Young (maybe Young is more 6'1"?). Click Here . Bledsoe was a good qb in the 90s but not so much in the 2000s. Brady has claimed 6'5" but that would put Bledsoe at a ridiculous ~ 6'7" and Manning at ~ 6'6.5". I think the 6'5.25" draft height is accurate for Manning, but its only a quarter inch short of his current listing.

The funny thing is in US weekly a recent issue I am not sure which one, the article said he was 6'4"! Funny because most magazines add on height instead of take away height.
Nashville said on 27/Feb/08
I saw him in the Tin Roof bar in Nashville, wearing flip flops. He's easily 6'5".
Viper said on 27/Feb/08
Brady looks 6-4 to me.
Anonymous said on 26/Feb/08
Peyton looks close to 2" taller than Tom Brady. Up here in New England some doubt Brady is actually 6'4" as he was a good 2" shorter than Drew Bledsoe. Peyton comes off as about 6'5" next to most.
Alex said on 19/Feb/08
So likely that could be their real height for the day since its not directly out of bed and could have lost up to 1/2 inch already by the time they get measured but people are different though and dont always lose the same amount.
Viper said on 16/Feb/08
I think around mid morning.
Alex said on 14/Feb/08
I wonder how early are these measurments taken for the NFL combine. If its not too early the heights they are measured at could maintain for most of the day.
Viper said on 14/Feb/08
Peyton admitted that he has a huge noggin on some video from the Pro Bowl on He wears a big helmet.
Alex said on 13/Feb/08
Vegas, nice picture assuming they are in the same type of shoes. I see a solid inch between the two. But also these measurements are in the morning and I believe Peyton was measured at 6'5.5 as well. Either way 1-1.25 inches apart.
But christ Peyton does have a long ass head. LOL
Vegas said on 9/Feb/08
peyton and his 6'4.6 measured bro Click Here
Alex said on 6/Feb/08
I was rooting for the Giants, not that I am a big fan of them but I do root for them at times since I am from NY but my team is the Steelers. Also I hate the Pats anyway.
Viper said on 6/Feb/08
Tom Brady sure looked like a mediocre QB in most of the super bowl when he had some pressure on him.
Antron said on 6/Feb/08
I think Peyton is all of 6'5" and change, he is slightly taller than 6'4" or so Eli... mostly because Peyton has a really tall forehead.
Real said on 22/Jan/08
Remember guys.. It's not gay to want to make sweet and passionate love to Tom Brady.

With that aside.. Manning looks about 2 inches taller than Brady in pictures. Brady is listed at 6'4
nick said on 15/Jan/08
vegas Thats not 4 inches at all if peyton stood straight it would be more like 6 inches minimum
nick said on 14/Jan/08

With jennie finch who is atleast 6'0 with what looks to be 3.5 4 inch heels which makes a 6'4 finch is beat by peyton by atleast 3 inches

Vegas said on 13/Jan/08
you really cannot trust photos here george W bush only looks 3.5-4 inches max shorter than manning; 6'1.5" GWB anyone?? Click Here
me said on 11/Jan/08
I think Manning's just 6'5" flat. I saw a video of him standing next to his 6'3" dad when he was in college, and he wasn't much taller.
Lmeister said on 3/Jan/08
Even Martin St Louis himself has admitted in an interview that he isn't 5ft9. He said that he is 5ft8, but they list him taller. Another good example is that when Brian Rafalski came to Finland he was listed 5ft11 during the last seasons in Finland he was listed 5ft8.5. Now he is back in NHL and is usually listed 5ft10.
Alex said on 30/Dec/07
What's Eli's combined height? 6'4 1/2 right?
Viper said on 29/Dec/07
I thought Bledsoe was just 6-5.
here said on 28/Dec/07
manning was a hair shorter than 6'5.5" bledsoe so 6'5.25" is spot on.
Derek said on 27/Dec/07
I always thought Leftwich was a flat 6'5". He seemed a hair shorter than Manning. One guy that is upgraded is Michael Strahan. He's listed at 6'5", yet was only marginally taller than my dad, who is 6'3 1/2".
Alex said on 26/Dec/07
Byron Leftwich is 6'5 1/2 but listed at 6'5. A rare downgrade.
Socom said on 26/Dec/07
I cant believe he lasted till the sixth round. The Browns got a steal.
Derek said on 26/Dec/07
Anderson is 6'6". JaMarcus Russell and Peyton Manning are both 6'5 1/2". Byron Leftwich I believe is a flat 6'5".
Viper said on 25/Dec/07
Derek is 6-6.
Socom said on 24/Dec/07
How tall is Derek Anderson? He might be the tallest QB in the NFL.
Kevin Durant said on 20/Nov/07
Lebron James is a couple of inches taller than the 6'5.5" Peyton Manning.
LV said on 14/Nov/07
I've seen that commercial, but that is probably a very low 6'0" doorway. I'm not sure why they wanted to make him look so big.
lookuptothetallpeople said on 13/Nov/07
i saw this guy on a commercial looked at least 6'7 to me, as he was standing under a 6 foot 8 door frame and had to squeeze through it to get by lol
Chris Webb said on 30/Oct/07
I just got accepted to Purdue yesterday ,weird ( if anyone cares )
LV said on 25/Oct/07
Viper, of all the guys in the NFL that I was acquainted with, I knew Matt Light the best. That guy is an absolute riot! If you've ever seen the commercials he's been in or his recent interviews on Sportscenter, you'd know what I'm talking about. He's very down to earth, he'd the kinda guy you'd play cards with (back when we played Euchre all the time) and then go out drinking all night. It doesn't appear he's changed much since then, just longer hair and lots of Superbowl rings! When I first met him, he was a tight end and weighed 50-60 lbs less. Now he's argueably the best left tackle in the NFL.
Vegas said on 24/Oct/07
thats a bit like me LV; used to be in college with this guy (really quiet, nobody barely noticed him), next thing he appeared on a program (equivalent to american idol) and was the biggest pop star in the country for about a year, everywhere he went he was mobbed by girls (who didn't even say hi to him when he wasn't famous). I remember about six months after he hit the big time he came back to college to do a gig, he was like elvis (the amount of people there), lol
Viper said on 24/Oct/07
Most linebackers are really 6-1-6-2, in the NFL at least. Whoa, you went to school with Matt Light? Didnt know he went to Purdue.
LV said on 24/Oct/07
Viper, I was at that game and recall a very big win for Purdue. I went to nearly every single home game those guys played and several on the road from 1997-2002. I personally knew and lived with guys like Drew Brees, Shaun Phillips, Matt Light, Craig Terril, Roosevelt Colvin, Kelly Butler, Joe Odom, and several others, so it was always enjoyable to watch them play and do well. The funny part is that back then, those guys weren't that well-known so I have virtually no pictures or autographs. Plus, it would be kinda weird to ask someone for their autograph while you're sitting there eating lunch together or out at the bar. In hindsight, I wish I'd gotten pictures and autographs from all those guys.
JohnP said on 23/Oct/07
Viper, yeah the NFL often wants their quarterbacks to be able to look the offensive and defensive line in the eyes. The standard "height rule" for a QB in the draft is 6-3 (and 220 pounds in weight).

Some people claim that "6-1 is short for a linebacker" and so on, but it's actually more common with linebackers that are between 5-11 to 6-1, than linebackers that are 6-3 to 6-4, even though the standard "height rule" in the draft is 6-3 for a middle linebacker and 6-2 for an outstanding linebacker.

Viper said on 23/Oct/07
Couchscout had Flutie at 5-9.
Alex said on 22/Oct/07
Flutie was 5'7 I read actually.
I think 6'2 and up is best for a QB actually.
dave said on 22/Oct/07
You have to be MASSIVE to be an offensive lineman. I've only seen one in the NFL legitimatly under 6'2...Hank Fraley, but he was a porkchop at 6'1'' 320. Guys like Leonard Davis and Bryant McKinnie are upwards of 6'7/6'8 350 of non-fat.
Viper said on 22/Oct/07
LV, I saw your boy Shaun Phillips on ESPN Classic the other day playing against Michigan in 2000. Drew Brees as the QB.

Height for a QB matters a lot in football because its easier to see over your offensive line. Height for the linebacker position is a little overrated. Youve had guys as short as 5-9 in the NFL excel at linebacker like Sam Mills, but thats the exception to the rule. The NFL generally wants linebackers that are 6-0 or taller. Being tall is an advantage for the defensive backs. Height is an advantage for wide receivers. Being under 6-0 is an advantage for a running back. Vegas the only 5-9 QB I know that excelled in the NFL was Doug Flutie. You really have to be 6-0 or taller for that position in the NFL.

i kno i said they can probally range around 2-4 idk any off the tip of my head but i'm sure a few could have been i just emant it can be in that range sure its probally mostly just 2inches at ebst but im sure soem have snuck past with 3 or 4
Anonymous said on 21/Oct/07
In response to the comments about NHL player heights, standard rule of thumb with most hockey weights due to the insane amount of competition in the scouting process is that stats get inflated by an inch of height and 5-10 pounds of weight, every time. It's what mine was always bumped up by my coaches from AAA up through juniors. The weight is the more important issue though, frankly, because it's associated with strength. There are only a few players in the NHL that are really legitimately under 5'10 though.
LV said on 21/Oct/07
Vegas, height is very important for NFL QB's because most of their offensive linemen are 6'3" to 6'8". If you're 5'9" and one of their offensive linemen get pushed back near them, it would be very difficult to get a pass over the top of them or to even see their receivers. It's not uncommon for short QB's to accidentally throw the ball off of the backs or helmets of his linemen. I agree that a successful short QB is more impressive than a taller one. Doug Flutie is a good example. I think he was 5'9"-5'10"ish.
