🎁🎉⚽🎂 Happy Birthday Rob! 🎂⚽🎉🎁

Our tallest Rob celebrates his 31st Birthday today - have a great time Rob G!

I found 198cm for him just now, but let's face it, he's nearer 199!

Rob can have a mammoth 6ft6.25 as his Birthday Guess. 😁👍🐘

@Christian: not sure if my last reply went through. No this coworker is honest and he honestly guessed Magic 6’7”. The one you’re thinking of inflates everyone too. He claims 6’5 whereas the honest one claims 6’4” and even says hes 6’4 in shoes and that he’s really 6’3.75” barefoot. That is about as honest as it gets. He may be 6’3.5” today because he’s older but in his prime I could buy that being he’s in his 60s and is prob 2cm shorter than me. Even the dishonest one after I called him and measured at the nurse at like 6’4 3/8” I believe back then earlier in the day claimed that’s his shoe height. So he knows he lies too and he’s not even as tall as that coworker. He’s closer to 6’3” than 6’4”

The other guy must be around 6 foot!

Canson Seriously Gronk is taller than Magic. Brady is at least 3 inches shorter Gronk. In 1998, Magic is the same height as 6'5'' Howard Stern. Google it. Stern pointed out the NBA inflating height by 4-5 inches back in the 90s. The NFL rounded Brady up to 6'4'' and rounded Gronk Down to 6'6'.

Gronk is shorter than Magic. That’s clear in the pic. Magic is physically taller in the pic and that is with him at a disadvantage in the pic (camera). You can see Magic’s shoulders are higher. And Stern is not as tall as Magic. Magic has always been at least 6’7”. I have a former co-worker of mine who saw Magic at LAX when he was flying back and my coworker is 1/2” Or so shorter than me at 6’3.5-.75 (6’3.75 peak though) and he confirmed Magic is 6’7” range. Magic was taller than Stern and looked taller than Lebron at times. Stern was 6’5-6’5.5 range Magic 6’7-6’7.5 range and Kobe 6’4.75”.

Then there’s Carmelo Anthony who I have met and is Around what he’s listed here. You can tell Melo has the camera advantage here in the first pic

Look closely and you can tell Melo does not have as much on Kobe as Magic does

Carmelo is likely taller than Gronk. Melo’s measurement is around an afternoon measurement whereas Gronk’s is a morning
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/May/20
I don't know if it was Pro Day or not, but NFL Combine Results used to have Gronk at 78.00 inches, but they now changed it to 78.25

Patriots fan here, so I'm a little bias. I'll pull for Miami teams at times. Gronk is over 3 inches taller than Brady, so he's a legit 6'6 1/4''. 245 pounds is a very healthy weight. I have a gut feeling Gronk is taller than Magic Johnson. At 6'6 1/4'' he's taller than most NBA players.

6’6.25 morning height. He only has Brady by 1.5-2”

Magic is taller than Gronk. Magic is still at least 6’7”. He was somewhere between 6’7-6’7.5 peak afternoon height. Even with Gronk having advantage with the camera Magic is clearly still taller, physically.

While Gronk was measured at the combine as it states below, it does say that his 40 was from the Pro Day. I could’ve sworn I saw a 6’6” flat measurement from his Pro Day too. But that shows that some guys may not always measure at the combine. Antonio Brown and JJ Watt come to mind as they look their measurements

Click Here
Canson said on 28/Mar/20
@Rob: I think they’re too close to call. Gronk at 6’6.25 early morning isn’t going to be 6’6.25 later in the day. Corbin actually measured taller at the combine than Gronk did. My guess would be that Gronk needs the downgrade too but Corbin is probably accurately listed now. If he goes below that it’s just barely so he could easily be the flat 6’6” at lunchtime
Canson said on 26/Mar/20

Is there a footwear difference here? It actually doesn’t look like Gronk is taller
Editor Rob
I am not sure on what Corbin's model, but in this Still, I doubt there's much difference between them.

Call me crazy but Gronk looked a little taller than Baron Corbin yesterday on Smackdown

Gronk: 6’6.25”
Baron Corbin: 6’5.75”
Canson said on 18/Mar/20
@KA188: I’d like to see him with Undertaker and Kane to prove that those two aren’t 6’5 and 6’5.5” like some people here guess them. Both guys look within 1/2” or at most 1/2” shorter than what Rob lists them here

@ christian

agreed dude.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Dec/19
Maybe, but only by a tiny hair. I can see Gronk around 6'5.75" and Corbin at max 6'6". According to nflcombineresults, Gronk was measured at 6'6" flat, so 6'5.5" wouldn't be out of the question either.
Canson said on 22/Dec/19
@Nik: yea he’s near the ceiling of very tall before it hits Extreme. I would give him maybe 6’5.75 afternoon and I consider a height like 6’6.5 or max 200cm as extremely tall
Nik said on 14/Dec/19
This is what average, average, and exceptionally tall look like!

I am chuffed to give Rob his 170th comment!
Canson said on 28/Nov/19
@184guy: It also depends on how tall you have Magic. I don’t think he’s 6’7.5 like Rob lists him. 6’7.25 maybe or 201cm. I can agree 6’5.5 may be low for Rob but 6’5.75 is a good estimate considering he measured 6’6.25 early morning. For another player who isn’t quite as tall I may have considered 6’5 7/8 at a normal low. Gronk could be that but someone his size would likely lose close to an inch. Not to mention a 6’4 Tom Brady isn’t 2” shorter. Brady is only about 6’4 flat. I doubt less but not much over
edwards said on 28/Nov/19
tom pestock aka baron corbin is surely taller than gronk.

Here's a photo from another perspective from the same event of the video that you sent . Of course Rob isn't taller than Magic but I can't see this 4cms between them . And their footwear is pretty visible ( Rob probably had an edge ) but anyway , 6'5.5-6'5.75 seems to be too low . The 6'6 mark fits pretty well and If he dips under , only in an extremely low conditions . He doesn't seems that he'd to be shorter than someone like Braun Strowman , for example .
Canson said on 21/Nov/19
@Junior: he had 1.5 or 1.75 on Brady. He’s not a full 6’6 afternoon height if he got 6’6.25 an hour after waking
Canson said on 19/Nov/19
@Junior: they measure like an hour out of bed not 3. The measurements come out around 9 am or before that
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Nov/19
Lower than 6'6 is certainly impossible. He might just be 6'6 1/4 three hours out of bed and 6'6 before bed. Gronkowski even pull off looking 2" taller than Vince Vaughn. Vince can't be lower than 6'4 1/4 if pull out a measurement. Peak Vince look 6'4 3/4 with 6'7 Lebron James.
Canson said on 14/Nov/19

When he walks on stage he’s looking up at Magic. I’m going off his pre draft height and what it would be later in the day. Half inch likely at least. I don’t get the impression on him that I do of Carmelo Anthony or Jimmy Graham even. Graham looks taller than him
Animus said on 13/Nov/19
That's from 2017. I think he's considerably lighter now that he's retired.
Redwing said on 13/Nov/19
Awesome claim man from the giant himself the fact that he was so honest it surprises me; what a unit... Real frickin tall height love it man!!
184guy2 said on 12/Nov/19
I don't know from where you guys think that Rob could be 6'5.5 , he looks an easy 6'6 with Kobe and Magic , 6'5.5 looks pretty unrealistic to be fair
Canson said on 12/Nov/19
@Rob: I think he’d be the same as Anthony Joshua
Canson said on 12/Nov/19
@Rob: Conan is prob more 6’3.5 from what I see and Gronk 6’5.75” next to Brady
Canson said on 12/Nov/19
@Rob: you should add the quote that he said with Conan 6’6 269
Editor Rob
He looked a comfortable 6ft 6 with Conan there.
Canson said on 6/Nov/19
He did claim 6’6” 269 pounds with Conan O’Brien.

Go to 8:00 in.

@Editor Rob: you should add this to the description.

At least he’s honest about his height. He would measure 6’6.25 early morning 6’5.75 perhaps evening or 6’5.5-.75 range

Canson said on 16/Oct/19
@Viper: I saw Lamont Jordan measured 5’10.25 and 5’9.5. Some very as much as 3/4” if rounded or very near an out of bed when they measure. Gronk my guess is 6’6.25 and 6’5.75 I wouldn’t rule 1/8” less out being he looks about 4cm taller than Brady who is probably a solid 6’4” afternoon

@ Canson - It really is unfortunate that he retired at a young age.
Yes there are 22 Rob’s and Rob Gronkowski is the tallest!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Sep/19
Yeah, the average career length of an NFL player is just 3.3 years, which is a bit surprising even for me. I assumed it was more like 5 years. 5 years is still below average for an athlete of any sport.
K.A 188 ! said on 12/Sep/19
Wtf? What is it with American football players retiring at just 30? I know it's hard and injury can really be a draw back but it is still surprising.
Canson said on 11/Sep/19
@Christian: actually I’ve heard rumblings of Gronk coming out of retirement but I do agree. Luck was a surprise. Completely out of left field
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Sep/19
I'd say Andrew Luck suddenly retiring is more of a surprise than Gronk. But the former could very well come out of retirement though. The chances of Gronk coming back are less likely.

That’s interesting. He is the tallest Rob on the site! Still can’t believe he retired at such a young age but I guess when you’ve sustained the injuries he has, it happens
Canson said on 14/Aug/19
@Christian: Not to mention that also means that Jimmy Butler’s listing is way over being he’s shorter than Kawhi. I doubt Butler is more than 6’5
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 14/Aug/19
Maybe Gronk, but I don't rule out of them being the exact same height. All I know is that Kawhi's 6'6" listing here is a bit too high.
Canson said on 13/Aug/19
@KA188: agreed!!! From the looks of it I would say Gronk is a little under 6’6” maybe 6’5.75 and Kawhi 6’5.5 or even 6’5 3/8-5/8
K.A 188 ! said on 11/Aug/19
I think Gronk probably edges Kawhi a little bit.
Canson said on 30/Jul/19
@Christian: who would you say is taller? Gronk or Kawhi Leonard? I don’t know what it is but Kawhi looks small even for a weak 6’6” at times although comparatively he does look around that mark with other players (6’5.5 though not above)
Canson said on 30/Jul/19
@Christian: I don’t rule that out. And I saw Brady with McGinest. Brady is at best 6’4 flat at a low. Gronk best case 4cm on him. I’m not sure which is accurate 6’6 or 6’6.25
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 27/Jul/19
According to nflcombineresults, he was measured at 6'6" flat so 6'5.5" isn't out of the question for him.
edwards said on 25/Jul/19
No way is he over 6’6 today,i even doubt he is 6’6 let alone over it.his best bet today is 6’5.75 .maybe in the morning he will clear 6’6 quite easily
Canson said on 24/Jul/19
Max 6’5.75. Worst case 6’5 5/8 perhaps. 6’6.25 is a morning measurement.
Canson said on 26/Mar/19
@Jdubbz: agreed! I could see an inch loss and him having been perhaps 6’6 5/8 out of bed and down to 6’5 5/8 or 3/4”. He really only looks 4cm taller than brady. Most say 1/2” but I’ll widen the gap to a full 4cm. So a maybe 193.1cm Brady puts Gronk around 197 maybe something like 197.1-.2 maybe. I don’t get the same impression from Gronk that I get from Carmelo Anthony. He was in a commercial with Ndamukong Suh in one commercial who is probably 6’3.5 and he didn’t look more than about 2” taller
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
@Jdubbz: agreed!
Jdubbz 196cm said on 25/Mar/19

Agreed, though he looks to have a long torso so he could possibly lose the full inch. I think 197-197.5 is a good shout for Gronk.
Nik said on 24/Mar/19
5'4" is pretty average to me!
Canson said on 15/Feb/19
6’6 5/8 out of bed 6’5.75 at a low
Canson said on 13/Feb/19
@Rob: to IKELUKE’s point it’s possible that Gwen is not talking about her being measured out of bed. That could be when she is wearing shoes versus when she isn’t especially since she has also claimed 6’3.25 so the 6’4.5 could be a shoe height
Editor Rob
For me, I would have went with the 'when' as implying a timeframe. I suppose you could interpret it in the manner you suggest like a shoe height. Personally I wouldn't.
Canson said on 13/Feb/19
@IKELUKE: judging by how Brady stands next to Gronk it doesn’t look 2”. And if the combine is held earlier in the day now than before it’s easy for that to happen. Brady looks every bit the legit 6’4” Gronk about 4cm taller.

And I disagree. height has nothing to do with favoritism. Just because gronk doesn’t appear as tall as His listing doesn’t make him any less a player or a man than he is so I don’t see what you’re saying about favoritism. Saying he’s not as tall as listed isn’t a slight at Gronk. And Here’s Gronk with Jimmy Graham. Both supposedly measured the same thing yet it’s obvious Graham is taller at least in this pic. But that is no guarantee so that is far from the holy grail. However, validity of combines is no better. Look up Julian Peterson. His combine shows 6’5.1 and he’s only 6’3 and listed 6’3”. Aaron Hernandez is listed 6’1” yet shows a 6’2.3 combine and Shawne Merriman is listed 6’4 3/8 on his combine yet is about 4” shorter than 6’6 1/8 Martellus Bennett and 1-2” shorter than 6’4 3/8 Shilique Calhoun

He should rather be basketball players like Kobe Bryant based on his freaking tall height. He is even taller than Kobe Bryant for sure... Me and him were both born in 1989 and almost into 30, but I was born 1 month before his birthday which is on May 14 around Mother's day!!!!
IKELUKE said on 12/Feb/19

Why would I trust this site over the NFL combine which is almost always far more accurate than a random internet assessment? I feel people here pick and choose which heights they want to believe and which they dont. Brady is apparently a legit 6'4 and Gronk is apparently not a legit 6'6 even though they're both morning combine measurements? The most accurate sports measurements there are? I noticed people on this site claiming Gwendoline Christie wakes up out of bed at 6'4.5 and then shrinks to 6.3 (which laughable and scientifically impossible) and that Hulk Hogan was apparently 6'5 in his prime and seems to have managed to drop 9cm (also nigh physically impossible). Even Rock is listed here as 6'2.5 and is towered over by 6'4 Barkley. I feel people pick and choose whose heights they want to believe dependent on how much they like them. Like Deontay Wilder being barely taller than 6'6 and Fury being 6'8 then Joshua being claimed by some to be 6'6+ out of bed (if you know anything about boxing heights, you would know that pretty much no one is their listed height). Kinda disappointed as I feel this site still lacks a lot of consistency and there is a bit of favoritism too. Its a good site and I appreciated the info but I feel if a celebrity has a committed fanbase, they tend to have inflated heights even on here.
Editor Rob
Gwendoline claimed herself to vary from 6ft 4.5 to 3. I don't think it's impossible, there was one famous case of a guy in New York going from 5ft 8 to 5ft 6.5 once! 🤔
Canson said on 2/Jan/19
He’s definitely over 6’5”. But probably not the full 6’6”. Probably just 197cm range 6’5 5/8-3/4
Batistaker said on 28/Dec/18
6ft 5 (195.6 cm)
Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@Christian: he may be a case like Jason Witten. I saw where Witten measured 6’5.75 at the combine but on the Couch Scout he’s only 6’5 flat. That said Gronk may be 6’5.5 at a low worst case imho. Meaning some of these guys may be losing a full inch throughout the day and may have only lost 1/4” by the time they were measured especially if it’s within an hour of waking which seems consistent for some. Then I’ve seen some where they’re only 1/4” or 3/8” above their low. May depend on how long they’re in line before measuring
Canson said on 26/Nov/18
@Viper: I’ve seen some where they are identical to the Draftscout measurements. Then I’ve seen discrepancies. Then again we’ve seen discrepancies with Draftscout and Shawne Merriman is a prime example of that.
Canson said on 24/Nov/18
@Christian: yea not sure which is valid. I will say that I have Brady at around 6’4” flat at a low and Gronk usually doesn’t look more than 1.5” or 4cm taller than him. I’m thinking Gronk may be something like 6’5.5-6’6 range at a low (some derivative of a weak 6’6).
viper said on 24/Nov/18
nflcombineresults isn't the most accurate either.

It has Malik Jefferson at 6-3, where everyone else has him at 6-2.

Heck he doesn't even look 6-2.
viper said on 24/Nov/18
He's got some gigantic hands. About 11 inches.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Nov/18

The 6'6" flat measurement is most likely the accurate one, since combine listings from are almost always higher. I guess you can't rule out 6'5.5" for Gronk now.
Canson said on 21/Nov/18
I saw two different combine listings. One at 6’6 one 6’6.25. They usually align for other players

Canson said on 18/Oct/18
@Christian: I doubt it either. Looks more 6’5.75 some times. Maybe 6’5.5-.75 zone is good for him
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Oct/18

Maybe, but no less than that.
Canson said on 15/Oct/18
@Christian: more I see of him I would say he can look 6’5.5 at times
Canson said on 15/Oct/18
@Christian: agreed!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Sep/18

It could've been the braids. I've never had braids so I can't speak from experience though.
Canson said on 18/Sep/18
@Christian and Myself: I’ve had times when ive Worn a thicker bush or even braids years back. And have had some wavy hair as well. The difference for me is only about 1/8 prob tho. I may have just measured earlier in the day or maybe I really did lose 1/8” and 6’4 3/8 May have been my low before. I’ve always thought I was 6’4.5 or at least considered until I measured after coming here
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Sep/18

Neither did mine. I don't even think being bald affects your measurement at all, unless you had a big afro or braids prior. The thickness of a hair follicle is barely 0.1mm for most people.
Canson said on 10/Sep/18
@Myself: I’m low cut now. Used to have thicker hair
Myself said on 9/Sep/18
I had pretty thick hair recently and after i cut it my measurements barely changed at all, maximum possibility half a mm, but i think even less. It's a different story if you decided to become bald though
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
@Viper: I see a 6’6 and a 6’6.25 combine. Wouldn’t surprise me if 6’6” is the truth and he dips to 6’5.5 at a low. I doubt he’s less than that or more than 6’5.75 because he only looks about 4cm taller than 6’4 Tom Brady 1.5-1.75”
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Sep/18
At least 197cm and always keep up a good posture. Gron 6'6 claimed i can still believe. Its the time of the day.
viper said on 1/Sep/18
Looks like he was never measured at 6-6
Canson said on 28/Aug/18
Another mention of 6’5

Click Here

My estimate of 6’5.5 may be low but 197cm is best case. He never looks a legit 6’6”
Canson said on 28/Aug/18
He’s referred to as 6’5” here but this really doesn’t carry a lot of weight as someone else is assessing his height. Then again, he could’ve seen him in person and guessed based on that. My guess is that 6’6.25 is an early morning height just like it is for other players and he’s something like 6’5.5 at a low. He only has Brady by about 1.5”

Ian555 said on 4/Aug/18
Hey Rob, Gronkowski did claim 6’6” on Clueless Gamer Conan O’Brien one time. It was the one where Conan and Tom Brady were playing video games. Maybe you could add that to his description.
Canson said on 24/Jun/18
This is a morning height for him as they get measured on average, an hour out of bed. Only 1.5”-1.75” on Brady. 6’5.5-.75 at a low as he would likely lose close to an entire inch in a day at his size. 6’6.5 or 5/8 out of bed
Canson said on 12/May/18
@Junior: yea that’s possible for him. I would for sure say 197 range especially since they take place in the AM. But looking at him with Brady, that only looks about 4cm difference. Not a full 2”. I don’t see Brady much over 6’4 at a low. But it’s possible that maybe he’s 193.5 and Gronk 197.5-.7ish. I also saw Gronk with Cam Newton and he looks about the same as he does with Kobe
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/May/18
@Canson Gronkowski Maybe 6'5 7/8 but he look max 3cm on Kobe.
Canson said on 3/May/18
@Junior: I would have Melo taller too but would put Gronk 197.4 (6’5.75) max since I’m sure that his combine was early morning and he doesn’t look more than 4cm over Brady max
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/May/18
Gronkowski may just be flat 198cm at lowest of the day. Carmelo Anthony might be a 1/8 taller.

I'll happily donate my old blue one, then every nfler can have an extra 1/8th inch 😁
Canson said on 24/Apr/18
@Christian: I think that could be just as accurate. I could see Gronk maybe measuring (at an hour or two out of bed) between 6’6 1/8-1/4 and getting benefit of the doubt possibly being rounded to 1/4. I’m wondering if he loses a full inch And dips down to say 6’5 3/4 or a mm or two below and wakes up at 6’6 3/4 or a mm or two less
Canson said on 24/Apr/18
@Christian: I think that could be just as accurate. I could see Gronk maybe being between 6’6 1/8-1/4 and getting benefit of the doubt possibly being rounded to 1/4. I’m wondering if he loses a full inch And dips down to say 6’5 3/4 or a mm or two below and wakes up at 6’6 3/4 or a mm or two less
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 24/Apr/18

I don't think using a set-square is much different than using a hardcover book to measure height. Both are pretty accurate methods, given that the floor and wall are flat and level.
Editor Rob
You can still get a reasonable measurement, but I'm frankly stunned that they aren't using a proper stadiometer. The Korean and Japanese have digital stadiometers on silly talk or game shows.

What's $2000 to the American Football's loose change really.

@Jason: it’s possible that you will retain it better once you get older. You may end up like me or perhaps a bit higher. I may have been similar out of bed to you. I measured 195.9-196 a couple years back but don’t know if that was due to height loss or shorter hair. Now I’m 195.7 sometimes 195.8. I used to measure 193.9-194 consistently at a low but now 193.7 some days .8.

As for Gronk I completely agree with you. I think he loses an inch or very close to it. If not an inch I can see 7/8 and maybe 6’6 5/8 out of bed and 6’5 3/4 at night. Perhaps 6’6 3/4 out of bed

@Rob: interesting!
Jason 193cm said on 18/Apr/18
@Canson agreed. Hard to tell from these pics but he seems to have a longer torso and relatively shorter legs, which makes him more likely to lose more than someone with the opposite combo. I seem to be the exception to that since I have pretty long legs for 6'4 but still lose near an inch or maybe .9 inches, but that probably comes down to age or water retention genetics. I agree with 6'5.75 as well. I used to think he was a strong 6'6, but the more I see him the more I think he's in that upper 6'5 range.
Editor Rob said on 7/Apr/18
This Senior Bowl measurement might have a greater chance of margin of error because you have a guy with a kind of set-square doing it. They're not even using a stadiometer...

Click Here

Click Here

They're going to all the effort of noting heights to 1/8th inches and making a spectacle of it with massive screens and hundreds of people in the audience, but didn't use a stadiometer 😃

I suppose they put faith in the guy measuring not to let the object slip before he gets to reading it out.

Also looking at the stage in the second photo, there looks like there's a slight slope where they measure as that board isn't uniform at top and bottom.
Canson said on 18/Mar/18
Out of bed 200cm (6’6.75)
Before bed 197.5cm (6’5.75)

He likely could lose an inch in a day
Canson said on 10/Feb/18
@Sean73: at 6am when they’re measured we would actually be deducting at that stage. If you look at 2006 senior bowl measurements (afternoon measurements) compared to morning there is 3/8-1/2 variance for all of the guys. Example Marcedes Lewis measured 6’5 7/8 at the Senior bowl but 6’6 3/8 at the combine same with Nick Mangold he was 6’3.25 senior bowl 6’3 5/8 at the combine. It also mentions that the combine was held early am and that the players were measured 6am. I think it’s safe to say that many will be about 3/8-1/2 shorter than their combine measurements as a 6am measurement is not standard practice for anyone outside of pro sports or college. I haven’t seen evidence of people only getting 3-6 hours sleep the night before. Even if they get closer to 5 or 6 that’s enough to get them close to their normal morning height maybe within 1/8” if they lay down

In Gronk’s case he doesn’t have a full 2” on Brady nor does he look as tall as Jimmy Graham who also measured 6’6.25. Nor does he look it with Kobe. Now with Gronk it looks weird because he’s 6’6 in some places and 6’6.25 my guess is he’s prob no higher than 6’5.75 if he measured at a normal time. My guess is Brady was likely measured some time in the AM as well but prob a bit later than Gronk was and prob is more 6’4 1/8 based on how he looks
Sean73 said on 9/Feb/18
NFL combine heights are a tricky bag. Most if not all athletes get 3 to 6 hours of sleep, (at most), before their weighed and measured in the morning. He could be a flat 6'7" after 8 hours of sleep and 6'6.25" at night. I wouldn't put a lot of stock in those combine numbers. Add .25" to .50" to taller, bigger athletes on average.
Canson said on 5/Feb/18
It’s odd. They have 78.00 on this one for his measurement vs 78.25 on the other one. I’ve compared to other players and their measurements will resemble based on the two sites. I’d believe this one to be more of what he measures earlier in the day and be 6’5.75 at a low

Canson said on 4/Feb/18
@Junior: I think he loses an inch (in my opinion). 6’6.75 out of bed 6’5.75 at night. With his weight where it is
Junior Hernandez said on 4/Feb/18
I think overall Gronkowski looks a good 6'6 not over and probably measure 1/4 taller in the morning NFL draft list him and i can understand sometimes he does not look over 6'5.75".
Canson said on 28/Jan/18
@Jake94: Graham measured 6’6.25 he’s taller than Gronk by half inch
Carson said on 27/Jan/18
Canson said on 18/Jan/18
Not as tall as Jimmy Graham or Carmelo Anthony and other places have him as 78.00”. Looks 6’5.75 next to Brady or Graham

I agree he's not quite 6'6" but pretty close at about 6'5.75
Jake94 (5'9 said on 23/Jan/18
Could have sworn he was a legit 6'7". I may have been thinking of Jimmy Graham though.

@Jason: Graham measured the same at the Senior bowl actually 6’6 3/8. So the 6’6.25 is likely normal height for him whereas gronk’s is a morning height.
Jason said on 19/Dec/17
@Canson good find. In the picture with Graham he does look 197.5cm range.
Canson said on 16/Dec/17

Gronk with Brady not a full 2” that’s 4cm probably
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 16/Dec/17
He might be 6'5.75" like Canson said I'm not sure, but one thing I know is that I'd be surprised if he's anything over 6'6".
Canson said on 15/Dec/17
@Jason: I think the 6’6.25 is a morning height. He looks shorter than Graham who measured 6’6.25 and doesn’t look but about 4cm (I would even say 1.5” at times) taller than Brady. I put Brady as 6’4-6’4.25 whereas Gronk looks 6’5.75 imho

Click Here
Jason said on 15/Dec/17
@Canson You think? He looks like a flat 6'6 minimum to me.
Canson said on 12/Dec/17
Overlisted a bit. He’s not even as tall as Jimmy Graham. 6’5.75 is how he really looks and maybe 6’6.75 out of bed
Arby said on 18/Nov/17
Met him in person when he was in college in AZ. He's 6'6
Canson said on 6/Nov/17
@Junior my guess is 195 for Kobe and maybe 197.5-198 for Gronk. Gronk has hair tho too. He’s def not 4cm on Kobe. He only has about 4 or so on Brady
Canson said on 6/Nov/17
@Robbe: I concur with Junior. That’s not near 2”. Put in perspective Kobe is taller than Brady and gronk is 1.5 absolute most if we are wrong 2” in Brady. He only has Kobe by 2.5-3cm. At most gronk May measure 6’5 3/4-6’6 before bed. My guess would be he’s just inside of weak 6’6 and could be like 197.5-198 or so whereas Brady may be 193-193.5 and a 1.75” diff on him. Gronk is shorter than Jimmy graham and both supposedly measured the same thing the same year. I’d highly doubt Gronk (after seeing more pics with Brady) is as tall as Carmelo Anthony is
Junior said on 6/Nov/17
@Robbe said on 6/Nov/17

And your new post picture favours much heavily on Gron look 5-6cm taller. Look at their eye level were only 3cm and put an adjustment for Gron step back a little on a line he wouldn't be over 198cm. Thats nothing wrong. Kobe 6'4 is way too low. Camera angle did something all the time. How could Gron measure 198.8cm in the day time and hold it to bed? LOL. He is a good 6'6 thats all. Everyone lost height through out a whole day out of bed.
Robbe said on 6/Nov/17
Excuse me, but its's Gronk who is standing very loose there, he is further away from the camera, and leaning on Kobe, and still appears 3-4cm taller. That picture favours heavily Kobe, no doubt about that. What comes to the previous posted pic, that's nowhere near one inch, moore like two inches Click Here

Kobe looks no moore than 6'4 in those pics, but its probably due to camera angles.
Junior said on 5/Nov/17
It's only about 3cm from top of Kobe head i don't understand why many people can't see it and Kobe standing a bit loose with him. I would give Gronkowski 197.8cm shave off a cm if he was measure morning so 6'6 for Gron and Kobe had to be absolutely not under 195cm.
Canson said on 3/Nov/17
@Robbe: that’s a morning height for him. He’s not a full 2” on Brady and is shorter than 6’6.25 jimmy graham. Maybe he can still hold around 6’6” on a good day but I can see 6’5.75 (197.5) maybe 197 flat is too low I agree. I’m not seeing 4cm with Kobe looks like a solid inch and looks the same with cam newton too

@Junior: that looks low for Kap. He’s probably my height between 193.5-194 at night
Robbe said on 3/Nov/17
197cm is a bit too low for Gronk, he is obviously moore than just 2cm taller than Kobe Bryant. Gronk is slouching here, and Kobe is closer to the camera. Yet Gronk looks 4cm taller, just like previous posted pic Click Here

I think Rob's listing is very accurate, Gronk is a strong 6'6in.
Junior said on 2/Nov/17
NFL league is no different with the NBA they should have get measure players during pre-draft in the earlier morning and all players should at least be shorten by 1-1.5cm max for their lowest height in the evening/before bed. If Rob Gronkowski measure 198.8cm he should be 197.5-197.7cm just like Colin Kaepernick i see more like 193-193.4cm.
Canson said on 31/Oct/17
I’d put money on what Bobby said as well. I don’t think Gronk is even a full 6’6” at night maybe 197.5cm and would still edge Theler out
Canson said on 31/Oct/17
@Rob: it’s weird with Gronk. He was drafted same year as Graham yet Graham looks shorter when they supposedly measured the same thing. He can actually look 6’5.5-.75 while graham can look the full 198-199
Canson said on 30/Oct/17
@Bobby: I can see him losing a full inch at his height and weight too. For me I wake up at a hair over 6’5 (195.8) and go to bed at about 6’4 1/3 (just measured yesterday). Rounded up I’d be 6’5 1/8-6’4 3/8 (some days come down to 6’4.25 myself too). I’m assuming Brady is prob 6’4-6’4 1/8 before bed I’d guess Gronk 6’5.75 prob at night 6’6.75 out of bed like you called it. Looks maybe an inch taller than Kobe and 1.5” or so on Brady
Anonymous said on 29/Oct/17
never met gronk but he looks 1.5 taller than brady i have met brady several times he is only a c hair shorter than me and canson basically our size ,,,, ive had friends that are the same size as me be in flip flops and look 2 inches shorter than me when im in shoes ,but height can be deceiving cuz its really only an inch... thats basically what i see with brady and gronk an 1.5 difference, gronk prolly wakes at a c hair under 6'7 and falls to 6'6 flat maybe a little under at night,,, but once again guys a legit 6'6 is huge i mean huge.... a legit 6'6 not a derek theler 6'6 lol
Canson said on 29/Oct/17
@Rob: how much do you see between he and Tom Brady? He doesn’t look a full 2” taller than Tom imho
Editor Rob: in a few photos he looks less, some he does look like he's near 2 inches taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Oct/17
Rob could he be more 6ft6?
Editor Rob: technically he probably measures 6ft 6 flat later in the day, especially since none of these combines are ever done after dinner time, always during daytime.

@Jessman: probably the camera angle. With Brady Gronk really only has 4-5cm max. I’d say Brady dips to 6’4” and gronk prob 6’5.75
Jessman said on 11/Oct/17
That's a big inch. Looks closer to 4 cms?
Matthew Robinson said on 10/Oct/17
I'd say that could easily be 1.5" with Kobe.

From the pic looks 6'5.75 max with Kobe that's an inch not 1.5"

Canson said on 5/Sep/17
Can't tell from this pic because it's not full but 6'6.25 Graham edges Gronk out. More like 197cm with him

Click Here
Canson said on 5/Sep/17
@Christian: wow. I'm hallucinating lol. I thought for sure he used to be maybe I was thinking about graham. Graham also has a 6'6.25 pre draft and is listed 6'7" tho on almost all sites. But I look st the YouTube video you posted on Magic's page and even with the footwear advantage he has he is still shorter which surprises me. Meaning still noticeably shorter when gronk walks the other way. Maybe camera angle was bad but I almost saw 2". Then again I can only usually see 1.5 with he and Brady whereas when rob first put out the page I admit I thought gronk looked that height. Brady I will always say is no less than 6'4" flat. He Just doesn't have the proportions a guy like Jared Padelecki does. I've seen Brady with cam newton and cam makes him look 6'3 at times. Not sure what to make of gronk maybe he loses the full inch and is 6'6 5/8-3/4 out of bed and dips to 197 or 197.5 at night and that could've been just a higher measurement for him st the combine. half inch diff actually does makes sense too if it's 2-3 hours out of bed. He just may have higher variance than someone like you or I or even Insomniak or SJH. I know Ali Baba said before he now loses an inch but in his peak was 3/4 I believe
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 4/Sep/17

I don't see Gronk being listed 6'7" anywhere, only 6'6"
Canson said on 24/Aug/17
@KH: I used to believe it that he was but now I agree with you after looking at more pics. Looks more like 1.5" like Bobby3342 said. I think 6'5.75 but no less. May be like 1 5/8 as I can see Brady dipping closer to 6'4" as well maybe 6'4 1/8. Weird he's listed 6'7" and not just 6'6" since he measured that height. Even as a tight end 6'6 is more than tall enough
KH said on 2/Aug/17
Is Gronk really this tall? I have my doubts. More likely a 6'5.75 in the afternoon guy. He doesn't have two inches on Tom Brady.
Canson said on 18/Jul/17
197/198 at lowest

200 out of bed

Aloofer said on 15/Jun/17
Same height as magic johnson
Canson said on 12/Jun/17
I agree with Bobby I don't think he's as tall as Carmelo Anthony is. He doesn't look much taller than Suh in their commercial and Suh is more 192cm (tops) away from the Morning combine based on how he measured and 1.5" less than Brady. 6'6.25 rounded up or even dead on could be less than 2 hours out of bed and someone his size could drop to 6'5.75 still being he likely wakes up not far south of 6'7"
Canson said on 1/Jun/17
I'd say he's no lower than maybe 197.5 at a low. Looks close to Flacco in height.
Canson said on 26/Apr/17
@Christian:197.5 is more like it. I doubt6'5.5. Maybe he was under 6'6.25 by a hair and rounded up (anything much above the 1/8 make gets it). I factor 2 hours out of bed so my guess is he's prob 200 out of bed (199.5-200) and 197 at his lowest (197-198) 6'5 5/8-6'5 7/8
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 25/Apr/17
I strongly doubt Gronk would be as low as 6ft5.5 If that was the case then his 6ft6.25 measurement should've been an early morning one, which isn't true because the NFL Draft Combine takes place in the late morning, when players are well awake for a few hours by then. He's gotta be a solid 6ft6 (198.1), or worst case 6ft5.75 (197.5)
Canson said on 24/Apr/17
To be fair Bobby did meet Brady and say he's 6'4-6'4.25 so that's gotta be maybe 197 range for Gronk.
Canson said on 24/Apr/17
@Bobby: maybe he's only 197,5 melo I agree 198-199 met him in person
bobbyh3342 said on 24/Apr/17

berta said on 23/Mar/17
looking at photos with him i would say he is my height maybe little taller this could be right but he is not taller he could have been measured earlier on day and is 198 flat. BUT in his videos with dwayne johnson on instagram he is about 4 inches taller than dwayne and i dont think dwayne is under 188 at worst.
Canson said on 20/Mar/17
@Nick: Conan has never seen 193cm. His low would be 191 peak and prob at most 190.5 maybe Lower poss. I see Gronk as a full 6'6" prob at his lowest doubt he dips much under if at all. The very very tall guys like him don't benefit from height it hurts him honestly. And he's only about 2" taller than Brady if even that
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 11/Mar/17
The woman on the right is clearly not 5ft4 barefoot. She has very high heels on and is still easily over a foot shorter than Gronk. 5ft2 at the most for her.
S.J.H said on 8/Mar/17
@Free said on 4/Mar/17

Can't disagree with you. I would say 95% players were measure in the early morning. 6'6-1/4 is just a morning height and solid 197cm is what he holding it.
Nick said on 7/Mar/17
how can you be so sure the guy next to him is 178cm? looks off to me, more like 175cm tops, to me Rob Gronkowsky looks tall and 196cm on the dot, he also has two brothers who look identical in height, appears to be 3cm taller than 193cm Conan Obrien (assuming Conan is really 193cm)
Free said on 6/Mar/17
Jay Cutler was measured at 6-2.7 at the senior bowl. He was 6-3.2 at the combine

I think Gronk drops to 6-5.75
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
He looks close to 2" taller than brady does. He has to be at least 6'6" at his lowest meaning he likely would wake to 6'7" or very close to it at his size. Worst case 6'6.75 and 6'6 lowest
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
@Free: I don't think he's below 6'6" afternoon. Bang on or 6'6 1/8 at his lowest. He's likely close in height with Carmelo Anthony. If you see him with Kobe he's a good 1-1.5" taller
Free said on 4/Mar/17
He was measured at 6-6.25 in the morning.

He dips down to 6-5.75 late afternoon maybe

Towers over 6 foot 4 guys like Vince Vaughn & Tom Brady. He's definitely above 6 foot 6 and probably near 6'7 straight out of bed in the morning.

hm rob you need to sheck out dwayne johnson and this guy. dwayne put up a video on them together barefoot walking and standing together. on his facebook. perfect for judging height. if this guy is 199 then i would say dwayne is about 189-190. its enough evidence to say that dwayne is atleast 189 still
