Rob, maybe that 6ft1½ is a goer?

Certainly at some point in the day he'd strike that and 6ft2 out of bed. Looked a textbook strong 6ft1 guy on Housewives next to Denton and Savant. I think Burgi and Moses could look similar range
Editor Rob
It's the most I would have guessed, but then he doesn't look sub 6ft 6ft 1 up to 1.5 is arguable.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/21
Editor Rob: 6ft 1 and 1/4 could be accurate, I wouldn't go higher really

Yeah, 6ft1¼ could be on point w/h Denton at 6ft0¼. Overall looks somewhere between Denton and Tuc Watkins, similar to Burgi and Moses (both solid 6ft1ers themselves)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Dec/21
Rob, he's got Denton (minimum strong 6ft) by at least an inch in these photos

Anywhere within 6ft1-1½ zone (w/h 6ft2 first thing) is my guess, not under 6ft1 anyway. He's a broad guy which helps make him look bigger onscreen.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/21
Rob, maybe 186-187cm range is closer?

At least an inch on Denton.
Editor Rob
Could consider strong 6ft 1 for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Sep/21
Strong 6ft1 guy (tops 6ft1½) who rounds off to 6ft2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/21
Rob, maybe 6ft1 and change?

Could pass for a weak 6ft2 on DH next to Denton (at least 6ft) and Savant (arguably full 5ft11). I think he edged Mark Moses (solid 6ft1 also)
Editor Rob
A chance, but I can't see him 6ft 2 barefoot

Rob, around the 8:52 mark Ricardo states that he’s 6ft2

Thanks for pointing it out, I'm not sure barefoot he is that tall, though over 6ft 1 is something he has looked at times.

180cm is ridiculous
Sacred said on 26/Aug/18
180 cm for me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/17
He could look big on DH, wouldn't have doubted 6ft3 which is what he was listed at for years. Looks more 186-187cm than 185cm.
Mr. R said on 16/Apr/16
He is now on Scandal too.

6"1(185cm) is a bit low...

186-187cm is closer to the truth
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jan/11
Rob could 6"1.5 be closer?

it's important to let young kids know about Steve Smith, Wes Welker, Santana Moss, MJD and Brian Westbrook. Once they get into football tell them about Emmitt Smith and Barry Sanders. People correctly assume you need to be "big" to play football but incorrectly assume you need to be tall. I was shocked when I discovered arguably the top running back of all time was LISTED at 5'9" (emmitt smith) and that one of the top wide receivers in the NFL is LISTED at 5'9".

Too many dreams are crushed by an ignorant adult who tells shorter kids sports aren't for them because they are not tall enough.

Tell them to hit the weight room and keep those dreams alive.

Thank you to Smith, Tyson, Robinson (Nate), Kane, and Maradonna for showing the world that height does not prevent one from playing even at the top.

It is sad that professional leagues lie about the heights of their players when the most avid fans and statisticians are young aspiring athletes.

Steve has that I don't give a crap personality, if he was 5'8 he would say it. I don't think an inch would be a big deal to him so I believe 5'9 is right.
Anonymous said on 14/Dec/08
that's him in the picture. he sure used his five-eight stature tonight against those broncos. well done steve. well done
Viper said on 21/Nov/08
So hes shorter than 5-9? In all honesty he looks puny compared to all the other players around him. So If hes stacked then thats saying something.
XIV said on 20/Nov/08
I see Steve all the time, I live in a small town just outside Charlotte, I'm 5'8, 5'9 in shoes and Steve's the same height as me, but has bigger... muscles, the guy is absolutely stacked. phenomenal athlete. GO PANTHERS!
Calvin said on 11/Sep/08
well I guess if he's listed at 5'9, that would make sense why the team I played for this last season listed me at 5'10...Click Here
Viper said on 4/Dec/07
Correct JB. Tiki's real height is 5-8.
Jack said on 3/Dec/07
Steve Smith is exactly 5'9, perfect listing! Great player too.
JB said on 15/Apr/07
In the Pro Bowl broadcast Steve Smith stood next to Tiki Barber - both in pads and helmet - and said, "Look I'm taller than Tiki Barber"...and he was by maybe a half inch.

I played two years at a small Division 2 school in Hickory, NC named Lenoir Rhyne College. Then I transferred to D-1aa North Carolina A&T State University, but faulty transfer paperwork prevented my eligibility, though I was a part of the program for two years. Now play professionally see

Where did you play college ball Calvin?
Calvin said on 2/Apr/07
I met him at the Panthers training camp back in 2003 before he had his breakout year. He was actually giving me advice how to get in the league(NFL). Im 5'8 1/4 by NFL measurements at my college senior day, but have always been listed at 5'9" also. Steve was the same height maybe even a little shorter than I was when we were standing next to one another
Alex said on 29/Mar/06
I think NFL's heights are pretty legit though most of the time.
Dante said on 28/Mar/06
Typically,when NFL heights are listed,the players are given about an inch of extra height.If he's listed at 5 foot 9 in the NFL,then he's probably only 5 foot 8.It isnt really feasible for him to be listed above his real height.The NFL is very detailed in their measurements.
Bottom line:at best,he is 5 foot 9,no taller.5 foot 10 is a stretch.
Glenn said on 21/Mar/06
He did look 5-10.strange.
cantstop25 said on 14/Mar/06
looks 5'10"there
Alex said on 13/Mar/06
5'9 for this guy looks about right. He doesn't appear anything over 5'9 when I see him on the football field on TV.
