How tall is Peyton Manning

Peyton Manning's Height

6ft 5 ¼ (196.2 cm)

American former Quarterback who played for Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos. In 1997 he was quoted saying: "I'm 6-5-1/2", although in another article it mentioned "Manning went to the combine, interviewed beautifully and scored 28 on the 50-question Wonderlic intelligence test. He measured 6-foot-5¼ and weighed 230 pound".

Am i the only one notice that Eli and Peyton both had very short looking arms? It looks disproportionate for 6'4.5"-6'5 range guys. To me it looks 6'3-6'4 if they meausure for their wingspan.

This is perfect for him. He can look 6ft5 and 6ft5½

Rob can you please upgrade Peyton’s height to 6’ 5 1/2”? Sure he was measured 6’ 5 1/4”, but I think he grew a little bit based on these photos. Here he is with 6’ 4 1/2-5 Joe Manganiello Click Here he looks at least 3/4 of an inch on him doesn’t he? Plus look at this photo with his brother who I think is a 6’ 4” and something guy Click Here. He looks at least an inch taller there. Plus look at him with 6’ 3 1/4” Dan Marino Click Here. He looks 2.5 inches taller than him. Just look at him with 6’ 3” Derek Jeter Click Here. At least 2.5 inches taller than him too. Also look at him with 6’ 4 1/4” Tom Brady Click Here. He looks 1.25 inches taller than him doesn’t he Rob? Here he is with Kobe who I think is a strong 6’ 5” maybe 6’ 5 1/4” (I don’t want to disparage Kobe’s wife but most people don’t know how to 100% accurately measure people plus the average guess on Kobe’s page is 6 ft 5.14 in) anyway here’s the picture with Manning Click Here. He also looks 6’ 5 1/2” there compare to Kobe doesn’t he Rob? Here he is with Draymond Green, who Steve Kerr said was 6’ 5” Click Here. Based on the head height, I would actually say Manning is a bit taller than him. Last three photos I want to show you Rob first photo with J. J. Watt Click Here. Watt is supposed to be 6’ 5 3/8” but doesn’t Manning look taller than him? Second to last photo is with Michael Strahan Click Here. Strahan is supposed to be 6’ 4 1/4” and Manning looks at LEAST 6’ 5 1/2” there if not a little more. Last photo I have to show here is with him with Kevin Durant, who I think is 6’ 10” range at least Click Here. When he’s with big guys, he always looks over 6’ 5”. Rob, would you again please consider changing his height to 6’ 5 1/2” based on the evidence I have just showed you?
Editor Rob
I still think 6ft 5 and change, but I can see how 6ft 5.5 isn't exactly impossible, he has at times looked near that range.
Shashank-6'3 3/8 said on 24/Feb/19
Peyton edges out kobe so i guess he could get that quarter inch there.It s doubtful that he is 6'5 1/2.
viper said on 18/Feb/19
You want to talk about big overall heads, how about Ben Roethlisburger.
Canson said on 17/Feb/19
@Ian555: if Kobe measured later in the day then that is in fact his true height for site purposes. Your evening and afternoon heights don’t really vary. It’s more that many of the other celebs here are listed a bit taller than they would be at a low
Ian555 said on 16/Feb/19
Weird I always thought Manning was a least 6’ 5 1/2” in and the NFL was rounding down his height to 6’ 5”. He always looks an inch taller than his brother Eli at least like in these photos Click Here, Click Here, Click Here. The last photo looks more like an inch an a half difference, and I think Eli’s 6’ 4.75” measurement was taken earlier in the day I think he’s in the 6’ 4.25” range. Plus in photos with Kobe, who I think is a strong 6’ 5” maybe 6’ 5 1/4” (anything under 6’ 5” for Kobe seems ridiculous to me even though his wife measured him, I think it was most likely later in the day and was taller than 6’ 4 1/4” Michael Strahan by at least an inch), he looks a little taller than him, by maybe 1/4 of an inch Click Here, Click Here. Lastly, these photos with Tom Brady, who was measured 6’ 4 1/4” at the combine, he looks 6’ 5 1/2” with him Click Here, Click Here.
Rob do you think the 6’ 5 1/4” measurement was taken later in the day Manning doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who would lie about his height.
Canson-6'4 3/8 said on 25/Dec/18
@Dream: I think Peyton would edge him by about 1/4”. Peyton solid 6’5” Kobe 6’4.75
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Dec/18
@Dream(5'9.5") Not quite true. I doubt they're never 1/2 inch apart and more like the same height if get measure. There are picture Kobe taller and there are picture Peyton taller but through out the video look more accurate for comparison Click Here Kobe look taller easily by get a bit of advantage nearer to camera but look to be Kobe having a higher shoulder than Peyton. I still think both were 6'5.
Canson said on 27/Nov/18
@Christian: he does. Interestingly enough
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Nov/18
I agree with Rob, Peyton seems to have a long head even for someone his height.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 24/Nov/18
The more I look at the pictures of Peyton Manning and Kobe Bryant, the more I believe Peyton looks taller than Kobe. The top of Peyton’s head is higher than the top of Kobe’s head. Peyton’s hair adds little, like a few mm’s.

Kobe also happens to have a ‘massive’ camera advantage, while Peyton is loose in posture. Actually, there are a few times where Peyton was roughly eye to eye with Kobe, even with Kobe having a massive camera advantage.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 24/Nov/18
Rob, what would you guess Peyton’s ‘head size?’
Editor Rob
a fraction over 10 inches, possibly 10.25-3/8ths
Nik said on 2/Nov/18
Height honesty has followed (autocorrect tried to change it to foolery!) him about!
Canson said on 8/Oct/18
@Dream: not completely sure about Peyton but I will say he likely didnt measure below 6’5” at his peak. I’m only unsure due to the disparity between morning and evening heights. If he measured 6’5.25, it’s possible he could only be 6’4.75ish at a low. However, his Pro Day was similar to his combine. I believe he was 6’5 3/8. I’m not sure how early the players were measured back in 1998 but Manning, nonetheless, genuinely looked at least a full 6’5 peak. Today, he may be a bit less however
Dream(5'9.5") said on 2/Oct/18
@Canson At peak, Peyton Manning would be the same as Bo Burnham. Both 6’5.25” guys and both don’t really look less than 6’5” (peak, of course).
Canson said on 28/Sep/18
@Chad: If he measured that in the morning, then how would that be his afternoon height? Most athletes measure in the morning and if JJ watt is noticeably taller than him then it means Manning isn’t 6’5.25. If Manning measured 6’5.25, he wouldn’t be a little over. the real question is would he be under that later in the day? Celebheights is based on afternoon heights.

@Dream: I’m torn. Maybe a peak Manning was that but I still say he’s 6’5 at a low and 6’5.75 out of bed
Dream(5'9.5") said on 27/Sep/18
@Chad

Agreed. I mean, a peak Peyton looked an easy 6’5”. It’s his large forehead that gives him a shorter impression. However, Peyton still looks 6’5” today. He edged out Kobe Bryant, Cam Newton, and even Usian Bolt (though the last guy could be slightly overlisted).

Yeah, after seeing all videos and clips of Manning and Bryant, I would put Peyton as being slightly taller than Kobe. Manning had loose posture and Bryant had a massive camera advantage.
Chad Clement said on 26/Sep/18
The obsession with people wanting to downgrade Peyton Mannings height is ridiculous. The man was measured 6'5 1/4" and is this height if not a little over that mark.
Canson said on 25/Sep/18
@mickie: manning prob would edge him by a cm maybe
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Sep/18
I don't know about today, but I doubt he was any shorter than 6'5" peak.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 23/Sep/18
@Mickie

True. Also, Kobe Bryant is in favor of the camera angles. Peyton still looks barely taller than Kobe.
Mickie said on 22/Sep/18
There are also photos where Manning is slightly taller than Bryant. I tend to think that's more accurate.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 20/Sep/18
@Canson @Junior

Now that you mentioned it, yeah. It’s possible that Manning was 6’5” flat, but when measured, he would measure taller than he looks. In @Junior’s case, there are times Kobe Bryant definitely looks taller, though that might be more in favor of the camera, but still.

Peyton did look taller than Cam Newton though.

Off-topic: I’m starting to think that Bo Burnham ‘may’ likely edge out Peyton Manning. That’s just my opinion though. In Owen Benjamin’s page, a user has claimed to have seen the picture of Bo and Owen. According to the user, Owen apparently ‘commented’ that Bo was taller than him (Owen). I’m not sure where the picture is. However, I still need to see it, myself. Peyton Manning’s listing is maybe legit, but Bo Burnham’s 6’5.25” listing is one of the best listings ever, probably 6’5.25” at a low for Big Bo.

Canson said on 17/Sep/18
@Dream: Brad guessed him 6’5.5 but Brad also had Jordan 6’5 when Jordan is 6’4.5 (brad later acknowledged Jordan being weak 6’5). Brad also classed himself 6’6” but is really 6’5.5 which leads me to believe Manning is probably a solid 6’5” or 196 max. His combine and Pro Day measurements were very close 6’5 3/8 and 6’5.25 which leads me to believe he likely is around 6’5” at a low. Maybe they measured later in the day back when he was drafted
Canson said on 16/Sep/18
@Junior: I wonder if the combine was held that early back when he was drafted. My guess is it was, is that Manning could be 6’4 7/8 at a low perhaps. My guess though is that he was 6’5” peak. He actually could, at times, look 6’5.25. It’s funny. I know two people who have met him. One of which is 6’2.25 by his own admission (actually is in person) and claimed Manning is a weak 6’5 maybe a full 6’5” tops. The other claimed he’s 6’6” but it’s hard to take him seriously because he also claims 6’5” flat is what he measured when there is no way possible he would measure that at a Dr’s office (I get 6’4.75 an hour out of bed). and he’s not any taller than me (we stood back to back) and I actually thought I was but at best we’re the same exact height. I couldn’t tell but I may have been taller. I believe that’s his shoe height and he’s 6’4” really. Or my size. He also called a guy who is between 6’5-6’6 6’8” one time. He inflated everyone’s height so I don’t take him seriously. And when someone “appears” 1” taller it may mean 3/4” so it’s feasible Manning is 6’5” flat really
Dream(5'9.5") said on 13/Sep/18
@Junior

Peyton did have multiple neck surgeries, which he could’ve lost height from.

Really, Peyton Manning did look taller than Kobe Bryant (going by the top of their heads). Keep in mind, Peyton was loose in his stance more so than Kobe.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Sep/18
@Canson I don't think Peyton ever lost height. I think its the morning he gets the 196cm height and always a strong 195cm guy just like Kobe.
Canson said on 7/Sep/18
@Junior: unless his 6’5.25 was early AM then that’s possible. I saw he measured 6’5 3/8 once too. He claimed 6’5.5. Brad met him and Gave him 6’5.5 but Brad also has claimed 6’5 and 6’6 so while I do respect Brad I can’t give that full weight. Brad also said now that he is 6’5.5 at a low so likely Peyton is 6’5 flat tops but that figure makes sense for a low. I couldn’t see him less than that at his peak and at times 6’5.25 or 6’5 1/8 make sense
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
@Junior: I recall Peyton having 6’5.25 and 6’5 3/8 measurements. I wouldn’t say he’s less than 6’5” flat unless he has lost height from the neck surgeries. A peak Manning imho was 6’5” flat worst case.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Sep/18
I mean Peyton a low at 6'4.75" or 6'4 7/8.
184guy2 said on 4/Sep/18
@Junior Hernandez 1990
I don't think so ...
Peyton head is much larger and his eyelevel very short . Kobe is totally oposite , small head , high eyelevel so he looks much more taller . And Peyton shoulders are even shorter ,but when you put the fact of the matter and look the top of their heads ...
Canson said on 3/Sep/18
@Junior: it’s the camera angles most likely. I would put Kobe a bit shorter or at worst Manning may only be 195 cm today but I would say he’s still a full 6’5”
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Sep/18
@Dream(5'9.5 That clip between Peyton and Kobe its hard to deceived who is really taller due to the cameraman kind of shaking filming the video. Majority Kobe look a bit taller. Peyton was measure in the morning 6'5.25" have came down a low 6'5.75" or max 6'5 7/8. Kobe had a more chance to be 6'5 than Peyton Mannning while compare to other celebrities.
Canson said on 27/Aug/18
@184guy: I think Ibra could be more 194 while Peyton may still be a solid 6’5” today. I know Rob mentioned for Ibra that his measurement was 194 and 194.5. 194 may be his low. But Manning oddly looks shorter than JJ Watt who measured 6’5 3/8 in the AM
184guy2 said on 23/Aug/18
A "normal" sized Peyton should be the same as Zlatan .

Considering this , there is no way Peyton is 195cm flat today , he's still in the 6'5 range

And well ... not much different than Joe Manganiello

S#@!, I apologize Rob. Here's the shot of Peyton and Kimmel.

Click Here

I see what you mean by sloping shoulders. Jeez, I'm slipping today.
Editor Rob
Yes, combined with larger than average head I think means his shoulder height looks lower than you'd expect.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 16/Aug/18
Rob, there’s something off about this picture 🤔🤔🤔

Click Here

Why does Peyton Manning’s shoulders look nearly the same as Jimmy Kimmel here?



Here’s another comparison.

Click Here

Bo Burnham’s shoulders look much higher than Jimmy Kimmel, but him and Peyton Manning look the same when comparing them with Jimmy Kimmel. The difference in shoulder length is strange.



Could it be the pictures Kimmel takes just to make himself look taller? What do you think Rob? I’m not buying the picture with Peyton Manning.
Editor Rob
There was no Peyton shot, but Kimmell in photos can look 5ft 11, other times closer to 6ft...Peyton might have more sloping shoulders so they generally look a bit shorter than some other guys his height.
184guy2 said on 11/Aug/18
Peyton head looks to be at least 2cm bigger than Kobe , that's why he looks shorter , but I believe is kind obvious who's the taller guy . But not by much ..
Dream(5'9.5 said on 5/Aug/18
@Canson @Rob



Actually, it's arguable that Peyton looked barely taller than Kobe Bryant. Look at 5:45 in this video:

Click Here


Look very closely with the top of their heads. Also, Peyton's posture is more loose than Kobe is.


The eye level is deceiving, but it's there.
Editor Rob
It is very close, enough you could say they may well be within 1/4 inch if measured.
Canson said on 14/Jul/18
@Norman: Megatron is 6’4 range. His 6’5 flat was early AM as are the other players but he looks too tall to be 6’3. Worst case maybe he’s something like 6’4 3/8 if his variance from when he took it is that steep otherwise 6’4.5 or 6’4 5/8 at a low
Norman said on 9/Jul/18
@Rob you should have Calvin Johnson listed on here one of the greatest, he's listed at 6'5" but I don't believe he's that tall, looks consistently shorter than 6'7" listed guys and about the same height of fellow NFL Rob Sims who he is 6'3"
Editor Rob
he looks too tall to be 6ft 3
Canson said on 8/Jul/18
@Dream: Watt looks a legit 196er imho. So he could be very close to it.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 30/Jun/18
@Canson Watt is definitely one of the few guys who is very close to his 'combine' height. He didn't look much different with Kevin Durant!
Canson said on 24/Jun/18
@Dream: yea if the surgery impacted him he may have been 6’5.25 at a low in his prime. He never looked less than 6’5” but maybe today he’s a full 6’5. The funny thing is he looks shorter than JJ Watt. I would say that Watt would measure close to his combine height maybe 1/8” or 1/4” less max. He doesn’t look less than 196 and can look 6’5 1/2 at times
Dream(5'9.5") said on 21/Jun/18
Actually, the more I look at it, the more I could see Peyton looking a bit taller than Kobe Bryant.

The problem is their eye-level, not to mention Peyton has a large forehead and a low eye level.

Peyton did look a bit taller when looking at the top of their heads, but he did have his surgeries.
Canson said on 20/May/18
@lukx: I would’ve thought Manning was legit but it may have been a measurement earlier in the day and maybe he gets to 6’5 or got to 6’5 peak. However he’s had extensive surgeries in the form of fusions on his neck and more than once. Imho he could only be 195ish today after all he’s been through
lukx said on 13/May/18
Peyton Manning looked consistently as tall as Kobe Bryant and Kobe is been measured at 6’4.1/4”
Canson said on 28/Apr/18
@Mayfield: I could see Peyton being around what Rob has him listed at a low in his peak. I remember seeing one measurement at 6’5 3/8 and then this measurement of 6’5 1/4”. I think he would likely be no lower than maybe 196cm at his peak but could’ve lost height today due to all of the surgeries he’s had on his neck. Today he often looks under 6’5” especially with guys like Kobe or Draymond Green. Green next to Peyton and Kobe looks about 6’5-6’5.25 whereas the others look 195cm or thereabouts. Green was a morning measurement and could’ve even been 6’5 5/8 or a mm above 1/2” and been rounded up in the AM. I know his coaches have said he’s only 6’5 as opposed to almost 6’6”
Mayfield said on 2/Mar/18
Rob, I don't know if you would consider him to be worthy of having a page considering his reputation, but Ryan Leaf, the quarterback who was drafted right after Manning and became one of the biggest draft busts ever. He was also listed at 6'5 and he does indeed look identical to Peyton, firmly in the 6'5 range.

Click Here

There's a quote by one of his college mates who refers to him as 6'5

Canson said on 4/Feb/18
@Junior: today I can’t see over 6’5” for Peyton. But doubt he’s that far under. Maybe what you said as that puts JJ Watt about 1cm above him. You’re pretty good at estimates tho I will say. Peyton looks similar to Kobe to be honest. I can’t see much diff with them
Junior Hernandez said on 4/Feb/18
@Canson I think 6'4 7/8 would be absolutely low for Peyton. More chance he could hold 6'5 most of the day.
Canson said on 20/Jan/18
@Bobby: I’ve noticed a lot of the nfl combine heights of players I’ve seen look pretty close. I’ve stood next to Vernon Davis before and he’s def a legit 6’3. Combine was 6’3.25 but that could be morning. I saw that 06 was. He is prob anywhere from 1-1.5” less than we are in person. I have a 6’3 buddy that’s 190.3-.4 at night and he looked exactly how he did next to me. So maybe Davis dips to 6’3 or 6’2 7/8 but he gave off a legit 6’3 impression so I can’t see him below 190.5ish afternoon. I’ve also met Terrell Suggs and he looked about an inch shorter than us so while his reads 603 3/8 i can say he’s prob somewhere around that like 6’3.25 perhaps. I didn’t pay attention to shoes I don’t think tho with him. Can’t remember but he’s prob close to what he measured imho. Same with Jared Gaither stood right next to my 6’7 friend and is listed 6’8 5/8 but he looked closer to 6’8” imho looked about an inch or so taller imho. strong 6’8 is more like it for him at best
bobbyh33432 said on 19/Jan/18
funny i have seen tom brady in person i have seen teddy bruskie, nate solder but never drew bledsoe? i guess he never hung out with the team after wards, i'll tell you what though nate solder is huge he had at least 3 inches on me, but bledsoe i never bought the 6'5 flat listing and his team mates at the time always said he was bigger than he was listed,,,,,
Canson said on 18/Jan/18
@Bobby: Looks about half inch or 2cm less than Bledsoe. Brady can look 1.5 shorter possibly. Bledsoe is prob close with Gronk. Maybe 197 Gronk 197.5. Peyton may just be solid 6’5 at a normal low and not 6’5.25
Canson said on 17/Jan/18
@Bobby: I think Bledsoe is 197cm range and closer to 6’6 albeit a weak 6’6” or worst 6’5.5
bobbyh33432 said on 15/Jan/18
i still dont trust all combine measurements because how is Drew bledsoe at least an inch taller than peyton manning when there both listed at 6'5? Tim tebow at 6'3? now there is a chance that bledsoe doesnt want to be 6'6 so he takes the 6 5 listing but i dont know? What do you think rob? what do you put Drew Bledose at?
Intevel said on 8/Jan/18
Rob do you have a height for Wayne Gretzky and Paulina Gretzky?
Editor Rob: I only briefly looked at him years ago, at the time not giving him a page, although there is a complete lack of hockey related heights on here!
Canson said on 4/Jan/18
I think this may be a low at a peak for him. If not 196 maybe. His pro day was supposedly about the same. I can see loss today tho as he probably did after surgeries he had. He doesn’t look taller than Kobe or as tall as draymond or JJ watt who are only 196-196.5 themselves
Big Jorge said on 3/Jan/18
Hey Rob,

I think maybe you should add Sidney Crosby to this website. He’s a tough one to gauge, listed 5’11 sometimes and sometimes 5’10. Thinking he could be high 5’9s as hockey tends to add an inch or so. Curious what you think.
Canson said on 21/Jul/17
@Phil: agree with what you said.

I went off his draft measurements 6'5.25 and 3/8 I think so probably rounded up.
Phil said on 13/Jul/17
Canson - Manning would say 6'5".5 because highly doubt that Manning is as anal as you folks and would say I am six foot five and 7/16...

And trust me you are not able to determine a difference of a quarter inch or less from a pic.
Canson said on 16/Jun/17
Not so sure SJH. To me Peyton looks taller than Draymond. Draymond is slouching tho a bit so it's hard to tell. Peyton has such a large forehead. I agree with your logic but for Peyton he had I believe 6'5 3/8 for one and 6'5.25 for the other. He mentioned before he's 6'5 1/2. But my assessment is that at peak he was maybe as tall as Christian is or a hair shorter 6'5 1/8 or 1/4" and just happened to be measured a little later on in the day maybe because he looks an inch taller than Brady does. Now he may have lost height too with the neck surgeries and only be 6'5 or a hair under today at night. The comparison with Kobe was no good as is the norm with many pictures here on celebeheights. Unless you're standing in front of both Peyton could be 6'5 Kobe 6'4.75 and still love could easily pass for being taller if only even a slight difference in the place they're standing. The funniest pics I see are the ones where people swear Barkley is taller than he is or Kobe or Howard Stern and the ones where people make Conan 6'4" or even others. Draymond I agree with but think 6'5-6'5.25 tops. Durant looks about 4-5" taller closer to 4 than 5. And Durant contrary to people wanting to make him taller is nothing more than a strong 6'9 barefoot at most 6'9.5. Maybe 6'9.25 even as he's not as tall as Deandre Jordan it can look 1/4 or 1/2" and that is assuming jordans lowest is 6'9.75 he may drop a hair too tbh or have been given a small fraction if he's say 6'9.55 they wouldn't round him down. I highly doubt anyone measures exact number they are mostly rounded up. None of us measure exact either I doubt to a T every time

@Canson

The difference between Draymond Green and Peyton Manning look exactly like how Kobe stand next to Draymond Green. Like i say before the draft measurement kick off a cm should be those players real height at lowest from draft camp measurement. Not accounting hair Peyton only look half inch shorter than Draymond. Kobe and Peyton both easily clear 6'5 in the morning and stuck at a big 195cm range and Draymond is closer to 6'5.5 like strong 6'5.25

If he measured near or at 6'5.5 like he claims at some point he must be 6'5 7/8 or 6'6" out of bed at his peak and 6'5.25 a time his lowest.Today tho he doesn't look over 6'5" flat

Steve Kerr and Alvin gentry weren't lying about draymond however. I'd imagine draymond has footwear on manning but don't know. And he's slouching but a 6'5" manning puts green around the same either way. He's surely not 197cm

Canson said on 1/Apr/17
@Christian: I don't believe Peyton was as tall as you are and today for sure not
Canson said on 31/Mar/17
@Christian: yes he could be. I heard he measured 6'5 3/8 at pro day as well. His could've been accurate. But you're right I usually knock about 1/4" off since they're generally 2 hrs out of bed. Some are a bit loaded like 3/8 tho. I'll split it and say I believe Peyton's is 196cm flat maybe
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 30/Mar/17
Canson, you say that NFL measurements are done earlier in the day. So if Peyton was measured 6'5 1/4", shouldn't he be a bit shorter than that at his lowest, like 6'5 1/8" or 6'5" flat?
Canson said on 28/Mar/17
@SJH: I can believe watt is a strong 6'5". Now 6'5 3/8 would be earlier but I believ maybe 1/4 under more specifically 196cm flat 6'5.16. I don't think he's really much taller than Peyton is tho. He's favored by the camera like Barkley is in pics being bigger. Now he does look maybe 1/4" or cm taller and his hair sticks up. I'd say Peyton is no worse than Kobe's height 6'4.75 and no more than 6'5 today. People have said he's 6'5 1/2" which he never was at his lowest. They say it to make others taller. Peyton may have been 2cm taller than eli prime which makes him more 196cm flat and Eli about my height 194cm
S.J.H said on 23/Mar/17
@Canson

I not so sure about J.J. Watt. Most of time Watt doesn't look over 6'5 also can look taller or same height as peyton. We don't know if put kobe and peyton them both barefoot they might just hit the same height at 6'4.75

Click Here joe manganiello is only 1cm shorter than peyton without cap
Canson said on 20/Mar/17
@S.J.H: I doubt that was morning I think Peyton actually was over 6'5" by a hair prime. Today I believe he would edge out Kobe or at worst he identical in height with him. You are right tho he did have neck surgeries four to be exact. He looks about 1/4-1/2" shorter than JJ Watt. My guess for Watt is he is 6'5.25 evening or at worst 196cm flat. Which makes Peyton 195 range maybe just under 6'5" at his lowest where as Kobe I can see dipping under 195 by a hair or two
Borats Chicken said on 20/Mar/17
rob, with the neck surgery and hits he took, how low would he be? 6'4.75?
Editor Rob: I don't think we are talking much...a fraction maybe, but a smallish one.
S.J.H said on 19/Mar/17
I atually think manning is just small fraction shorter than kobe bryant. Heard he had some injury on his neck or back might had took off few mm away and if i'm not wrong 6'5.25 was just a morning measurement like every others NFL players and he might just always came down 6'4.75 low. 194.5cm at his low nowadays.
Canson said on 6/Mar/17
@Nick: he isn't shorter than kobe is. In some pics he edges him out. People keep referring to the pic where Kobe is in front of him so the camera angle makes him appear taller. In another pic manning is taller than Kobe is. Manning is still no worse than 195cm and likely a full 6'5" or 6'4 7/8 next to JJ Watt. Watt edged him by maybe 1/4" or 1cm in the papa johns commercial but has thicker hair than Manning does as well (it appeared more like 1/2" but doubt it's really that high).
Nick said on 5/Mar/17
hes shorter than Kobe Bryant so I just can't be 196cm he's around 193cm
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
Agree with Shiva but more like 6'6 out of bed prime 6'5.25 at his lowest today 6'5.75/6'5.6 out of bed 6'4 7/8-6'5 at his lowest. He's a cm shorter than JJ watt 6'5 3/8 combine so 6'5.25 before bed for him max

heightchecker34 said on 27/Oct/16
Yes, this listing seems accurate. You forget how tall he is, when he is surrounded by other NFL players around the 6'2-6'4 range, but then when you see him with average sized people without his gear, he definitely stands out. He looked around the same height as 6'5 JJ Watt in their Papa John's commercial. He has about an inch on Eli, it seems whenever they are standing together. One of the greatest QB's to ever play on the gridiron, and I feel fortunate to have seen two legends in Manning and Brady play for the right to be in the Super Bowl over the years. On a side note, he does have a large forehead!

@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

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.

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$

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.

@Ceypto139
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.

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.

Hey Rob what would you say Peyton Manning's head length and eye level is? Just wondering.

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

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"?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

---

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.

@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.

What do you think Big Ben Roethlisbergers's midday-evening height is. He was measured 6'4 7/8 at the combine. Hes def 6'5 or slightly more right out of bed I bet. At the lowest he may drop to 6'4 1/2 at night.
Alex said on 13/Jul/11
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.
Alex said on 13/Jul/11
The 6'5 1/2 is probably his morning height. Hes a solid 6'5 for sure. He probably only hits 6'5 in the evening/night and 6'5 and change in the afternoon.

It is just very very obvious Tom Brady is not a legit 6'4, he doesn't look 6'4 with anyone,

If you want to question Brady's height, Drew Bledsoe is the best measuring stick. He always made Brady look 6'3" MAX, of course Bledsoe's also said to have been 6'6" and not 6'5" as he always insisted on being listed.

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

Why would they round up like that
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.

Are you sure? I know he was listed at 6'4.3", I thought .2" - .3" was 1/4, .4" was 3/8. Either way, we know pretty much how tall he is within 1/8". He claims he's 6'5".
