Canson, I can measure 6-5.5 in my brother's larger shoe size by being able to stand on my toes a bit without anyone knowing.

A 6-2.75 guy like me.

It's hard for me to buy this guy at anything even close to 6'4" when I see him looking just slightly taller than Adrian Peterson who is a measured of 6'1.5" (that could be early in the day). Also next to Shilique Calhoun - these guys are NOT the same height. He really seems more like a guy who would be under 6'3".
Canson said on 15/Dec/18
@Christian: I don’t think Rampage has seen the video with Martellus Bennett. And Bennett is gonna be less than his combine measurement if we go by an afternoon height. Most likely not higher than 6’5.75 as that was what he was listed on Couch Scout. Could even be as low as 6’5 5/8. I’ll give him 6’5 3/4 since that’s what Couchscout has (6’5.8 is just rounded up from 6’5.75). Even if we just used Bennett’s combine measurement. It’s still gonna put Merriman no higher than the average guess if it is only a 3.5” difference as opposed to 4”. But in reality Rising said it in the post that it could be 3.75-4” which is how it looks for most. It’s arguable that it could be over 4” at some points really. And 3.5” for maybe a shorter period.

Ogden could be 6-7.5
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 14/Dec/18
@Rampage

How? If anything it's a bit too high. He was measured 6'2.4". Besides, he has both 6'2" and 6'4" listings, so logically 6'2.81" isn't a bad average.
viper said on 14/Dec/18
When Bruno was at center court ready to tip off my dad said to me how tall does Bruno look, 6-8. Then 2 seconds later he said maybe 6-9. I said well he was measured at 6-8.75
viper said on 14/Dec/18
Merriman should be listed at 6-2.5 max, lower than the average guess
viper said on 14/Dec/18
How is the average guess stupid when he's shorter than 6-2.8 and was measured at 6-2 at his pro day and looks a weak 6-2 in person.
Canson said on 14/Dec/18
@Viper: how tall would you say Jonathan Ogden is? I see he was listed 6’9” his entire pro career but always said to be 6’8”. Apparently he was exactly 6’8” at the combine. You think chance at 6’7.5 since it is usually early morning? I don’t know how early it was held back then but he surely looks less than 6’9”
viper said on 13/Dec/18
CJ Spiller measured 5-10.2 at his pro day.

Click Here


RB C.J. Spiller (5-foot-10 1/4, 196 pounds) had a 36-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot, 6-inch broad jump, but kept the rest of his numbers from the combine. Ford had a 36-inch vertical jump and stuck to his combine numbers for everything else.
Canson said on 13/Dec/18
@Viper: I think it’s safe to say that Phillips is around your height and has a low of 6’2.75 or 6’2 7/8

@viper

I agree with you that Beckford's closer to 5'11" than 6'0", but I said "6'0 listed" because that's how he's listed on this site.
viper said on 12/Dec/18
How is Scott Van Pelt looking this much shorter than Bruno Fernando. Click Here

He barely looks any taller than 6-3 Darryl Morsell.
viper said on 11/Dec/18
What was really interesting was Bruno Fernando really looked no taller than
6-8, even though he was measured at
6-8.75. Jalen Smith actually looked a hair taller. It looks the other way around on tv
viper said on 11/Dec/18
Shaun Phillips measured 6-2.7 6-3.1 and 6-3.3
viper said on 11/Dec/18
Was sitting down low and saw Booth at a game this past weekend walking around the court. Physically thought he looked 6-4. He then looked about 3 inches shorter than 6-7 Rodney Elliot interviewed together on the court.

6-5 is a stretch imo. Though just a rough estimate from my vantage point.
viper said on 11/Dec/18
Ben Leber was measured at 6-2.5

@Viper: id haveThought 6’5 ish or 6’4.5 for Booth
viper said on 10/Dec/18
Ben Leber was measured at 6-2.5. So likely a tad lower than that
viper said on 10/Dec/18
Tyson Beckford is really 5-11
Canson said on 10/Dec/18
@Christian: there are more pics of him looking sub 6’3 and even 6’2”ish than there are of him looking 6’4”. I didn’t realize just how many he had. We also have to add Jamie Foxx. For Moss his combine was 6’3 3/8. He may even be 6’3” imho at a low. Looked inch shorter than brady at times

Canson said on 8/Dec/18
@Christian: I’m unsure as to exactly how tall Captain Jack is. I would’ve actually bought 6’6” flat like the newspaper listing had him but that could’ve been off. I tried comparing him to Reggie Miller and couldnt tell. Jackson did look taller than Metta Wold Peace however and he looked a half inch taller than Kawhi Leonard although Leonard doesn’t necessarily strike me as someone near 6’6” either. I used to feel that he was 6’5.5 but I wouldn’t be surprised he were 6’5.75 and given 6’6” and is really even 6’5.25 or 6’5 at a low. Leonard doesn’t look that tall imho for a 6’7” listed guy. Jackson though could look 6’6” with Duncan and MWP imho. Maybe 6’5.75 instead since I also have MWP 6’5.25 afternoon
viper said on 8/Dec/18

Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@Viper: that’s how he looks in the video with Bennett to be quite honest. Best case 6’2 1/8 or 1/4 if we use a 3.5” difference worst case is 6’1.5 maybe but not sure how much that has to do with the camera. I think 6’2.5 is a good compromise. 6’2.4 that he measured at the PRO day is likely 6’2 3/8 as opposed to half. I don’t think that was in 1/8” increments as I saw some .8 and .9 as well. I saw Jason Witten listed 77.8 on his combine listing in one place which shows 6056 on his combine elsewhere.
viper said on 4/Dec/18
Merriman looked 6-1.5-6-2
Canson said on 28/Nov/18
@Viper: if you’re 6’2.75 at a low, you’re guessing Merriman as only 6’1.5 or less if it’s over an inch. How much diff did you see? I guess from the video it’s within the realm of possibility but he was 6’2.4 at his pro day. That’s a lot to have lost. I could buy maybe 6’1 7/8 unless he padded his socks or something. If you hit 6’2.75 then that’s your height you would be gauged at here on this site of course still rounded to 6’3” in every day conversation and I would just say 6’3 too
Canson said on 28/Nov/18
@Viper: Evans measured only 6’4.75. Chances are 6’4 3/8 or 1/4 honestly at his low over 6’4.5
Canson said on 27/Nov/18
@Rising: very interesting observation. I saw about the same. 4” for some of that video then 3.5 for parts and 3.5-4” for parts. There were times when Bennett actually appeared to have even more but not sure if that was just the camera. I still think it’s somewhere In the 3-4” range (closer to 4” than 3” imho). I would say that Bennett measuring 6’6 1/8” would probably come out to around 6’5.7 at a low (6’5 5/8 up to 6’5 3/4). Benefit of the doubt 6’5.75 and Merriman 6’2.25 imho. But Worst case tho is right where Viper saw him and Merriman could be weak 6’2”.
viper said on 27/Nov/18
184guy he's deffinitly 6-2. I've seen him up close and he was measured as that.

@Canson
There are a lot of pics here , some he looks barely 6'2 , other indeed 6'4 , but if you scroll down and see the pic that I post of Shawne training with Armie Hammer , there is no way he is 6'4 , but 6'2 to me seems to be too low . The video of himself being measured is very weird . I could have done the same thing , telling to someone say that I'm 6'3 while taping when I'm clearly not .
Rising - 174 cm said on 26/Nov/18
@viper: Click Here It can actually look more before you consider Bennett is shortening his eye level. The difference between their heads is about 82 pixels then so if you compare that to Merriman's head(as 10") then it'd come out to almost exactly 4"(3.96") or just over 3.75" if you go with 9.5" for Merriman's head instead.
viper said on 26/Nov/18
He should be listed at 6-2.5 as a start. Please Rob
Editor Rob
I wonder if Merriman would be willing to take part in an impartial height measurement video!
Canson said on 26/Nov/18
@Christian: in regards to Vlakit, Both he and Viper claimed to see him up close. Not saying either didn’t and I can believe both may have but Viper’s encounter came at the same game I attended and also saw Merriman at although I was much further away than him so I couldn’t size him up. I actually would’ve believed and I did assume that he was 6’4 or 6’3 until Viper posted the evidence then I became skeptical and now I know he isn’t for sure. He’s def 6’2
Canson said on 26/Nov/18
@Christian: definitely agree

@Viper: I think 6’3 is a start. Rob acknowledges 3”. Still not a great listing but better than the current. At least only an inch off vs 2 or perhaps a bit more. I actually said 6’3 was a good listing earlier this year when this page was first opened just because we were all so split due to the pics favoring 6’4 then 6’3 then 6’2

@Christian: agreed. And Rising said it very well in his post below as the evidence is there and is almost bulletproof that it’s nearly 4” difference. I honestly believe it’s over 3” nearer 4” if not a full 4”
viper said on 25/Nov/18
Rising, could you make the line go straight across and show it's 4 inches.

JuJu Smith has an erroneous measurement. He's not 6-1. He was measured 6-0 at his pro day.

He's nowhere close to 6-3.5 next to barefoot Martellus Bennett
viper said on 25/Nov/18
Merriman looks nowhere close to 6-4, so I don't know why Rob keeps him there.

He needs to be downgraded to 6-2.5
Canson said on 25/Nov/18
@Viper: that would make him possibly 6’1.5 at a low

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Nov/18
@Canson

I think the only thing that's keeping Rob from downgrading Merriman is his supposed 6'4 3/8" measurement. Rob even said that he thinks he's 6'3"-6'4" but he still lists him at 6'4" for some reason. Just about everyone here, including Andrea, Junior and Sandy believes he's shorter than 6'4", as they have him at 6'3.5"

Rising - 174 cm said on 23/Nov/18
This is one example of what I was referring to with head length: Click Here If we can agree that's fairly representative of where their heads start and end then between the lines comes out to 190 pixels for Bennett and 207 for Merriman. Now this varies in the 3 stills I uploaded to where their heads are about equally long in one and Bennett's is a few pixels longer in another. Rob knows more about cameras than I do, but when someone is closer to the camera and getting a big height advantage, it often seems that their head winds up looking disproportionately long. I know tilting up and down can make the head longer/shorter as well, but nothing about their head size seems unusual in that pic, imo.

Rob, how can you not go that low when he was measured 6-2 at his pro day
Editor Rob
There's still the conflicting reports about that. You can find he was reported as 6ft 4 3/8ths from that event and some reporting he came in a couple of pounds heavier at 274.
Canson said on 22/Nov/18
@Viper: there’s no way that he’s losing 4” with Brees. And Booger McFarland claimed Brees is only 5’10”. Although He can look that sometimes, I don’t believe he’s that short either. Either way if Brees is 5’11-6’, he would be 6’2 tops
viper said on 22/Nov/18
It's high time Rob downgrades him to
6-2.5, when he's not even that tall.
viper said on 22/Nov/18
That is such an easy 4 inches between Merriman and Bennett
Canson said on 21/Nov/18
@Christian: another variable is where they were standing. If the grass isn’t even or if one had a footwear advantage as well as the distance in which they were standing from the person observing. If Merriman really were close to 6’4 like the poster is saying then it would mean that Bennett is near 6’8 when he measured practically 6’6” in the morning or even 6’7 if we go with what Rob says is only 3”. That definitely looks at least 3.5” as you Viper and even Rising who has plenty of credibility even said. Even if 3.5 it would still put Merriman around his Draftscout listing of 6’2.4. Maybe he’d end up 6’2 5/8 which is possible if his Pro Day were 6’2.4 since the combine is held a bit earlier.

Canson said on 21/Nov/18
@Viper: the barefoot comparison is the best. But he has a 6’2.4 measurement as well. That 6’2.4 is probably his real measurement. Maybe he’s 6’2 at his low like Rudy Gay said or near it. But that lady saying that isn’t really saying much. She may be bad at estimating height or may believe a 6’2 guy is 6’4 or may have assumed he was really 6’5 or more
Canson said on 21/Nov/18
@Rob: Christian has a point. He would still look around 6’4” if he were truly measured at that. All signs point to the 6’2.4 from Draft Scout being his actual measurement. Just like you pointed out that one time, 5111 was read as 5113. 6023 may have been read as 6043 since the 6’2.4 from Draftscout may have been 6’2 3/8 even. I say that because there are .8 and .9 measurements On draftscout. But Maybe it isn’t really a 4” difference but 3.5ish but even 6’3.5 is very high. I still remember the Instagram post where he joked about socks and someone even responded back 6’3 when he said he was 6’5. This was a response to his video that he posted of him being 6’5” (where he negotiated with the woman to make him 6’5).
viper said on 21/Nov/18
Merriman was measured 6-2 at his pro day, yet I don't understand why Rob doesn't see it.
Canson said on 21/Nov/18
@Rob: maybe a solid 6’3. even if that is only a 3” difference between the two, a guy 6’6.1 would be 6’5 3/4” at a low given when he was measured thus making Merriman 6’2 3/4 at a low which is slightly below 6’3-6’4 zone. But even if he is 6’3-6’4 that makes little sense after he “allegedly” measured 6’4 3/8. He would likely be a solid 6’4 or 6’3 7/8 which for all intents and purposes is right at 6’4” (close enough to where it’s not even worth saying 6’3/6’4)
viper said on 21/Nov/18
Rob you know it's high time he's downgraded to 6-2.5, when he's not even that tall.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't go that low, but I could see somewhere in 6ft 3 range as not an impossibility.
Canson said on 20/Nov/18
@184guy: imho if Rob is right about a 3” difference instead of 4”, I could see him measuring 6’3 1/8 perhaps since Bennett measured 6’6 1/8” but even then it would make him 6’2.75 or 6’2 5/8 at a low since the combine is early morning. I too would believe a 6’3.25 or more specifically a 6’3” flat listing before I believed that he were 6’4”.

@Rob

Why do you think that even 6'3.5" is too low of a listing for Merriman?
Editor Rob
I think 6ft 3 and a half is a possible, but it would mean the 6ft 4 range measurements were inflated. Maybe there is truth in his instagram measurement, it's just with sneakers on.

Merriman simply looking 3"-4" taller than Liddell doesn't prove Merriman was 6'4" though.
Canson said on 19/Nov/18
In the video and in the pic Christian posted from the video, Merriman doesn’t have loose posture. It’s very much the same as Bennett’s at times. And as Rising mentioned, Bennett’s looks looser than Merriman’s for parts of it. Merriman is just an entire forehead shorter or very close to it even with the camera angle taken into account. I don’t find it hard to believe that he isn’t really 6’4 as other players have been overlisted before with the NFL
viper said on 19/Nov/18
Rob, there are mismeasuremnts in the NFL all the time.

Aaron Hernandez was 6-1 yet he supposedly measured over 6-2, which he didn't.
Editor Rob
There's certainly some rounding happening, maybe in rare cases they have a gentleman's agreement to alter a listing for whatever purpose.
Canson said on 19/Nov/18
@Rob: to Viper’s credit, we saw ourselves with Steve Young where he’s listed 6’2 and is only 6’0”. Aaron hernandez supposedly measured 6’2” and change yet he’s 6’1 listed in the league. Viper also posted another player who was supposed to have measured 6’5.1 but is only 6’3 in reality. Even if we went with Bennett’s early morning listing he’s 6’6.1 and only said a 3.5” difference which it may actually be closer to (I’d go with 3.75) then it just about lines up to where Merriman measures at the pro day 6’2.4. A 6’2.5 or 6’2 5/8 is even more plausible than 6’4. No chance that he’s that tall and you even said he never looks 6’4”. A guy measuring 6’4 3/8 will not measure that much below 6’4 later in the day if at all. You see Tom brady measured the same yet I would bet money he’s taller than merriman. Worst case if he shrunk more than average he may be something like 6’3.75 at a low but really 6’3 7/8 is where I would draw the line if he measures 6’4 3/8 at some point. It’s more than likely that they messed up the measurement and he’s really not that tall. He’s likely just 6’2 3/8 early morning
Editor Rob
It's not impossible that the truth is somewhere in 6ft 3-4 zone, though I cannot see the 6ft 2.5 as being more likely (overall). I'm sure sometimes he looks that short.
184guy2 said on 19/Nov/18
Not sure on 6'2 , but certainly not over 6'3.25
Vlakit said on 19/Nov/18
I was in the very front row at the chargers game and I saw Sean merriman and chuck Liddell right in front of me next to the chargers bench. Merriman was easily 3-4 taller then chuck Liddell!
@rob your listing is perfect for both of them please tell some of these people that think he’s 6’2 that they are out of there mind
Canson said on 18/Nov/18
@Viper: how tall do you think Rudy Gay is? You believe 6’7” or 6’6.5 perhaps?
viper said on 18/Nov/18
6-2 Treyvon Hester with 6-4 Shilique Calhoun. Click Here
viper said on 18/Nov/18
Rob, I think you do a great overall job with this site and most of the listings are accurate. But this is so off it's hard to believe on a credible site like this.

The guy was listed 6-3 in college. He looks 4 inches shorter than a 6-6.1 early morning combine measurement NFL player. Both guys are barefoot. It doesn't get any better than that.

6-3 listing and looking 6-2 with a barely 6-6 guy both BAREFOOT. Not to mention the fact NFL.com has him at 6-2 and couchscout has him at 6-2.4.

It adds completely up. It's not a coincidence
Editor Rob
The video is wide angle and when he looks 4 inches smaller he's further away, so I'm not sure what the true difference is. He's a natural loose-postured man, more than half the time he never looks as tall as 6ft 4. If Merriman was really measured 6ft 2 and a half, then changed it by 2 inches then it calls into doubt a lot of stats on record.
viper said on 18/Nov/18
The video should be taken down as well, since we can not see his feet. Of course he's not going to show his feet because he's nowhere close to 6-4.

And you want to know how off stadiometers can be at the doctor's office. I was measured 5-10 once being 6-3!! The nurse was bewildered saying how can that be when you are so tall. I got back on it again and measured about the mark I am. How she undermeasured me that much I don't understand.

When I was 6-0 in high school I was measured 6-1. So they over measured me there.
Canson said on 18/Nov/18
@Christian: your comparison on 16 Nov was great! this is definitely not how a 6’4 guy is gonna look next to a weak 6’6”. I look nothing like that next to my solid 6’6” friend let alone even my 6’7” friend
Canson said on 18/Nov/18
Rising those are excellent points you made about head size and Bennett having looser posture at times
Canson said on 18/Nov/18
Bennett is not 6’7”. That’s a shoe height
Canson said on 18/Nov/18
@Rising: I completely agree. I think even if not 6’2.5 and Rob says 3” I would at absolute minimum line him up to where Bennett Measured at the combine so 6’6.1 then 6’3 or 6’3 1/8. It does look 4 but I also mentioned 3.5-4 possibly as camera could’ve been impacted
viper said on 18/Nov/18
Rob, it was more than 4 inches when Bennett got closer to the camera.

And Bennett is barely 6-6.
viper said on 17/Nov/18
That's a bigger height difference than I have on my 6-0 dad that's for sure
viper said on 17/Nov/18
Rob, it's time for a downgrade to 6-2.5
Canson said on 17/Nov/18
@Rob: he looked no more than 6’2” really. The guy measured 6’6.1 and 6’5.8
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have guessed that low, but 6ft 3 I could see just from the clip. All those wider shots are favouring Bennett, how much is harder to tell.
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Nov/18
Even just a 3" difference would mean Merriman looks closer to the average guess or his 6'3" college listing than 6'4" or even 6'3.5". My own guess had been nothing over 6'2.5" in that video because I was unsure of the camera as Canson mentioned, but there were times such as the screenshots I took where Bennett's posture seemed looser and in the first and 3rd their head size didn't really indicate a big camera advantage as far as I could tell. Just my opinion anyway.
viper said on 16/Nov/18
At most Rob needs to downgrade him to the 6-2.4 couchscout listing.

But preferably 6-2.
Canson said on 16/Nov/18
@Christian: agreed. This is one of the worst. Even if we used Bennett’s 6’6.1 (he has a 6’5.8 like Viper pointed out too), Merriman should be max 6’2 1/2 (which is generous) maybe but really 6’2.25. He likely isn’t over a flat 6’2 best case
viper said on 16/Nov/18
Rob, that's an easy 4 inches.

And even If it were just 3, still puts Merriman under 6-3.
Editor Rob
I'm not sure, Bennett (he's pushed his own claim as high as 6ft 7 before!) was nearer the camera at the point he looked tallest.
Canson said on 16/Nov/18
@Viper: even there Demarcus Ware shows the exact same as he did on his combine measurement which leads me to believe that that could’ve been a morning measurement as well but I did notice Jason Witten is 6050 on there and not almost 6’6”
Canson said on 16/Nov/18
@Rob: that’s definitely closer to 4” not 3. Even 3.5 would be reasonable. If Bennett is 6’6 1/8 combine listing Merriman 6’2 1/2 would be even be more adequate. Even though we know that Bennett was measured in the morning but it’s in keeping with how you have other football players. Merriman measuring 6’2 3/8” is very likely scenario which would make that 3.75”
Editor Rob
I could see how he looked no more than 6ft 3 in the clip, but whether it was great for comparison is difficult to say...certainly another bit to the argument against Shawne being as tall as he claimed.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Nov/18
@Rob

3" is undercutting it. That taller guy looked at least 3.5" taller. Click Here

@viper

We don't know how tall that kid is so we don't have any reference. That's not a good comparison.
Canson said on 15/Nov/18
I think the video that Viper posted needs to be highlighted in the description. That same sort of “picture” was referenced on Trump’s page saying when he stood next to a 6’2” athlete
Editor Rob
I would have said the taller guy was around 3 inches taller, from what footage there was.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Nov/18
Shawne should NOT still be listed 6'4" here. This is easily one of the worst listings on this site.

@viper

While I don't think that his video measurement was fake, it was very likely that he was measured 6'4.25" in shoes in the morning and that got rounded up to 6'4.5". The video would've been much clearer had the stadiometer's scale was being shown.
Canson said on 15/Nov/18
@Viper: I agree with Rob that that is evidence. However, the video you posted is the best evidence of any here and Shawne is clearly not 6’4 let alone 6’3”

@Rob: you should consider the video as that is very persuasive evidence that Merriman is overlisted

Why is the whole focal point of that video getting measured when you are sick? Lol
viper said on 14/Nov/18
Should the video measurement be taken down?
Editor Rob
If it is a lie or not, it's best left mentioned, as that's what he was willing to claim was a measurement.
Canson said on 14/Nov/18
@Viper: I leave 3.5” or maybe 3.75 if there is something up with the camera angle. At one point during the video it could look a bit under 4” but I agree that it’s 4” for most of it even a bit over 4 at one point perhaps
Canson said on 14/Nov/18
@Rob Paul: I think Viper has made the point now. No chance Merriman is really 6’4” or even 6’3 based on that video. Even if you went with the 6’6 1/8 measurement for Bennett, Merriman would come out no higher than around his Pro Day of 6’2.4. Not to mention both guys are barefoot. I’d say Viper saying a downgrade to 6’2.5 (which I also had him at) is still generous for Merriman since that looks closer to 4” for the meat and potatoes of the video

Canson said on 14/Nov/18
@Rising: well said! Yep I’ve seen you do the same. This was also a good gauge due to proximity and both being barefoot. As for the difference, I actually see 4” for most of the video but maybe for a hot second 3.5”. Id say based on this that Merriman could’ve actually been 6’2 3/8” for the combine as opposed to 6’4 3/8. As Viper mentioned he measured 6’2.4 at the Pro Day. All that said, it would put him around 6’2 perhaps even as low as Viper saw him (6’1.75) if Bennett dips from 6’6.1 to 6’5 5/8 or 3/4 like he would from the combine. That’s based on the difference between them. Suffice to say based on this, Viper actually proved you right when you said earlier that sometimes the unpopular vote is the one that wins. Even at a solid 6’2” that’s still closer to what he guessed vs anyone else
viper said on 14/Nov/18
Rob can you downgrade Merriman to 6-2.5 now. It's obvious
Canson said on 13/Nov/18
@Viper: if that’s accurate it shows that Barkley and Khodjoe aren’t as tall as they’re listed here which I suspected all along. I had Barkley 6’4.5 peak but looks 6’4/6’4.5 there tops and Boris next to them could barely look 6’3 or max 6’3
Rising - 174 cm said on 13/Nov/18
@Canson: I know what you mean. Sometimes I'll ask others opinions before stating my own when I post something significant. @viper: These are screenshots of the main part I based my opinion on: Click Here Conservatively, I wouldn't argue with the 3.5" Christian mentioned or the 3.5"-4" range Canson said either, but in the first and 3rd stills in particular, I see more 4" than 3.5" honestly.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 13/Nov/18
@Canson

I said 3.5" but I was being pretty generous. The difference looks closer to 4" like Rising and Viper said.
Canson said on 13/Nov/18
@Rising: I agree on Melo and Bosh. I wouldn’t go under 6’6 or 6’10” for either. I think with Melo that Merriman looks around 6’2”. But with the video, you and Christian guessed it just how Viper and I did. I wanted two other sets of eyes because I felt that this was by far the best indicator (credit to Viper for posting it) since Merriman is barefoot here (as is Bennett)
Canson said on 13/Nov/18
@Rising: i dont rule out 6’2 now honestly

The 6065 could be a measurement in cleats previously. That does about line up with how he would measure barefoot at his low
Canson said on 13/Nov/18
@Rising: i dont rule out 6’2 now honestly
Canson said on 13/Nov/18
I agree with all three of you. He does look 3.5 and 4 at times. It surely isn’t less and this tells me that he’s not over 6’2 range. @Christian: I wonder if Bennett hits 6’5 5/8 from his combine height.
viper said on 13/Nov/18
During the parts I could estimate, I would have guessed Merriman about 4" shorter, but I could easily be wrong.

No you are definitely right.
viper said on 13/Nov/18
That's as good as it gets. Both are barefoot
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Nov/18
@Canson

I see an easy 3.5" difference between Merriman and Bennett in that clip. If Bennett's 6'5.75", that makes Merriman look max 6'2.25"
viper said on 12/Nov/18
Look at the 2:09 mark
viper said on 12/Nov/18
Bennet is the same height as Anthony Joshua, and they both look the same as The Rock did with Anthony Joshua in the ring.
Rising - 174 cm said on 12/Nov/18
@Canson: Merriman looks quite a bit shorter in that video. During the parts I could estimate, I would have guessed Merriman about 4" shorter, but I could easily be wrong. I remember the Kemp photo and Merriman with his hat looked to reach Kemp's eyes, but Kemp looked to be leaning more. Kemp was supposed to have measured 6'8.75" pre-draft. As for Melo, I think since you saw him a solid 6'6" in person, it's more likely he was simply measured when he was up for a long enough time to be closer to his low than high and was full grown by 19. Bosh's 6'10.25" also looks pretty believable from that class, imo.
viper said on 12/Nov/18
Canson I really doubt he's has high as 6-2.5

But he should be downgraded to at least that
viper said on 12/Nov/18
Lol that video ends any doubt that he's nowhere near 6-3 or 6-4

Look at the 3:02 mark right when it cuts to another frame. Easy 4 inch difference and Bennet is under 6-6.

Merriman looks what I saw him in person.
viper said on 12/Nov/18
The 6065 was just put there when he was in college. It doesn't mean anything

Any college player you see on draftscout is not a real measurement
Canson said on 12/Nov/18
@Viper: check out Bennett’s combine listing. What does the note about 6065 before the combine mean? Just curious. I wonder if that’s a Pro Day or Senior Bowl listing but the combine is usually held early morning so surprised he has a higher measurment elsewhere. I would’ve thought he would measure out around 6’5.75 or 6’5 5/8 if he measured that at the combine

Click Here

@Rising and Christian: how much height difference do you see in the video here? This is good when both are hitting the bag because they close to each other and both are standing barefoot.

Canson said on 12/Nov/18
@Viper: I’ve almost never seen where it’s a 2” difference between Russ and harden. It usually looks about 1-1.5” I easily buy 6’2/6’2.25 for Russ and 6’3/6’3.5 for Harden

@Rising: I agree with what you said! I would like to see Gay with Merriman as well. I think Viper posted one of Merriman and Shawn Kemp though and Kemp is said to be something like 6’8.5.
viper said on 11/Nov/18
Chris Long might only be 6-2
Canson said on 11/Nov/18
@Christian: for Wade, it wouldn’t surprise me if he measured in shoes honestly and it was moved over. Shane alluded to that as well. The measurements from that year appear afternoon imho. Keith Bogans measured 6’4.5 in 2002 and 6’4.25 in 03. Melo was 6’6.25 but I will say in Melo’s case it’s not entirely impossible for him to have been a morning measurement and have grown a small fraction since the draft since he was 18. He looks a very legit 6’6”. Maybe strong. Wade just looks small imho like other 6’2.5-6’3 guards look in the league
Canson said on 11/Nov/18
@Christian: he has said both about Rampage before. He said “you love making people taller” as well and even said to me that I “love making people shorter”. I respect him myself but when you see the inconsistencies with his comments it doesn’t help And that isn’t just him that’s a lot of the posters here who claim that Barkley’s measurement didn’t take place. Common sense would say the NBA isn’t gonna make a player shorter. They just won’t do that. That’s a very lazy silly cop out. Especially when someone trusts what Conan says out of his mouth relative to his own height but not Barkley. So we’re going to make Barkley taller just to make Conan the height he claims is what I gather here when in reality it’s known that many men lie about their height. Barkley has even gone on to say before that he’s 6’5” so it isn’t him doing that because he did measure 6’4 5/8. Wouldn’t surprise me if he were just 6’4.5 peak barefoot

@Canson: I meant I should have known my reply would bring up the Barkley debate. As for Danimal, I've disagreed over his speculating over posters' psychology, including my own so I get where Christian is coming from with that, but after seeing him post here for almost a decade now, I think he's a good guy overall. Back to Merriman, the comparisons to basketball players have been some of the most interesting, but I'd really like to see a good pic or video of Shawne and Rudy Gay after Gay referred to him as 6'2".
viper said on 11/Nov/18
I saw a clip the other night of Harden talking to Russell Westbrook. Harden looked about 2 inches taller
Canson said on 11/Nov/18
I do agree. Probably around 4-4.5”
Canson said on 11/Nov/18
@Rising: you didn’t say anything wrong. Like you’ve said earlier with Danimal, they’re opinions. And I respect his just like Yours and Viper’s
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 11/Nov/18
@Canson

I don't know if I can say the same about Danimal. Once he falsely accused me of wanting Uli Latukefu to be shorter than me, just because I estimated him at 6'4"-6'4.5". He also implied that Rampage was a downgrader (which is strange because many of Rampage's guesses tend to be higher than Rob's).
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 11/Nov/18
@Canson

I think the NBA gives an extra 1/4" boost for some players. There are some who look a full inch shorter than what they supposedly measured, like Wade for example. He was maybe measured 6'3.5" in the morning but was given a 1/4" boost to 6'3.75". That's just my theory though.
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Nov/18
@Canson: I'll reply to anything on Barkley's height on his page, you know what I think of the 6'4 5/8" figure and any alleged or assumed measurements so I don't need to repeat it here. I don't think Conan saying "I'm not" had anything to do with height either. I think he got cut off from finishing his thought, which seemed to me like it was going to be to the effect that he wasn't handsome and an impressive figure like Selleck despite being tall. I agree with you that Conan is not a full 6'4" barefoot. Obviously, most of the things we disagree on concern Barkley or something similar and I don't personally see the parallels between Conan and Barkley, but I agree that taking Conan's claim at face value doesn't make much sense to me regardless. I won't speak for Danimal, but from what I gather, he seems to think most men over a certain height don't lie to make themselves taller, but would only lie to make themselves shorter. I don't agree with that myself, but I think that's his reasoning from what I've read him say on Tim Robbins and others. But this all started because I disagreed with viper's word choice so it's sort of semantics and I'll say that's viper's opinion and he can say it's "safe to say" if he wants. I said why I disagree, but I'll leave it at that. The important thing is that he's going to think Barkley is roughly the height you think he is for any comparison to Merriman so like I said, it doesn't much matter. I probably shouldn't have said anything so my bad.

Back to Magic and Merriman, I'll look into him a bit more with some of his Showtime era teammates, but I agree that's probably more 4", 4.5" based on what Rob said about Magic's eye level concerning Boris.
Canson said on 10/Nov/18
@Christian: I almost wonder if Chane already did slouch somewhat. But if he didn’t and that’s just a low or an extreme low, then it shows that the NBA measurements are not only early morning but are likely inflated a bit. It’s possible that Chane isn’t even at an extreme low but a normal low instead as it occurred around 1pm.
Canson said on 10/Nov/18
@Rising: my opinion on Magic and Merriman is right in the middle. I have Magic at 6’7” at least today. I doubt he was ever 6’7.5. If we see a guy like Kurt Rambis with him, Magic was shorter than him (clearly). I would say a peak Magic May have been 6’7.25 (201) but no higher. And 6’7 wouldn’t surprise me either. May be as low as 6’6.75 today as some people have pointed out but I’ll leave him at 6’7”. I can see it being 4 maybe 4.5. Merriman at a solid 6’2 seems a bit low. 6’2.5 is about how he looks with Barkley and with Magic.
Canson said on 10/Nov/18
@Rising: I like Danimal as a poster as well and respect him. But my reasoning with everyone and not just him, is that if you are going to accept Conan’s claims is that they are just that, claims. People claim Barkley downplays his height which is BS. Yes his measurements are closer to 6’5 than 6’4 but a guy measuring 6’4 5/8 could easily measure 6’4 1/2 or 3/8 as well if that wasn’t his low. Even at 6’4 1/2; he could round down to 6’4. I do agree with you that he’s not 6’4 flat. I have him precisely around the mark 6’4 1/2 maybe even 6’4 5/8 at his peak.

Conan claimed 6’4 1/2 and Danimal believes that is his height at his peak. Conan has claimed 6’4 more often than not and said 6’4 1/2 then said 6’4/6’4 1/2. He would measure 6’4-6’4 1/2 in shoes and 6’3-6’3 1/2 barefoot. Then said I’m about 6’4 but I’m not with Selleck. I think the latter is most accurate that he would measure almost 6’4 (at whichever point he went to the doctor which was likely earlier in the day). And to digress, Barkley measured 6’4 5/8 at the Olympics yet people are saying that is made up. It’s a bit ludicrous for the NBA to intentionally make up a measurement for him especially one that is very close to what he has claimed (6’4 1/2, 6’4 3/4) and what he “allegedly” measured 6’4 7/8. 5/8 is a very specific figure and it lines up to what most NBA players say he is and most others who have met him. So to me it’s because there are a lot of people here that don’t want to believe he’s not a tall as they think. Difference is that Barkley has at least two measurements here 6’4 5/8 and 7/8 on record whereas Conan has zero. And the “I don’t think that the 6’4 5/8 took place” is a lazy cop out. Several people have said that. One guy years back in Barkley’s forum said “if we keep Barkley at 197cm we don’t have to downgrade anyone”. I don’t know who it was now as that was a few months before my time. That type of statement is a very illogical one and pretty much shows that people think making a celeb taller than they are is respectful where as downgrading them isn’t. And That’s an excuse honestly just because Barkley makes others look shorter than their claims. I understand he can but That’s also a specific figure that he measured. If they were gonna make it up they would’ve just said he was 6’4 or 6’4 1/2 maybe. And if we take into account that most NBA players are listed about half inch taller than they would measure in the afternoon, Barkley is right in line with them as I wouldn’t argue him measuring a full 6’5 in the first hour or two of waking and him dipping to 6’4 5/8 or 1/2. That’s in line with James Harden and Steph Curry (6’3 and change and 6’1 and Change at lows).my point is that we can’t “simply” ignore the measurements for Barkley or sweep them under the rug or make other bs excuses such as the ones that some of the posters you mention make about them being made up and then turn around say that the Rock is 6’3 like one of them often says. One of which took a heavily favored pic of the Rock with another athlete and tried to use that as evidence. Then another pic of the same athlete and Rock was posted and there was “a problem with that pic” although everyone was in agreement that that pic was the best of them but because The Rock looked at best 6’2” it wasn’t good. Everyone acknowledged the bad angle in the pic that poster posted. And that was not Danimal because like you said he believes the Rock is 6’2”. It was one of the ones you mentioned though. Barkley and Tim Robbins are two of the only celebs I don’t agree with Danimal on. He also claims robbins was 6’6/6’7 when he claimed 6’4.5 and 6’5. But I agree with most of his estimates actually to be fair.

So my point is that people can’t accept that someone who was actually measured is not what he measured, then why are we accepting that Conan is 6’4” or over when he was never measured? Just because he claimed it? Especially when 6’3.5 Selleck edged him even if it included a footwear advantage, along with Hasselhoff, Neeson, Lithgow. Even Klitschko at 6’5 1/4 had a good 2” on him. Common denominator is that Conan inflated all of them except Hasselhoff and Lithgow. He even asked Wlad if he were 6’6/6’7 when he was on. I’m in agreement with you on Selleck as I mentioned before and your estimate for Conan is a lot more reasonable. 6’3 1/2 is very reasonable (although I would shoot for 6’3.25). Conan has long hair though so it makes it tricky at times. Not sure if you saw Mickey mention he’s met him (Mickey is from Boston). Now we can’t ever be certain but Mickey seems honest and he is almost right on point when he said that he and Conan are almost exactly the same height. He initially said he couldn’t see him below 191 or above 192. Mickey said he’s 6’3.25 at his low to 6’3 3/8 some days so that said Conan could be a bit less or even a bit more. 6’3 flat or 6’3 1/8 is possible just as 6’3.5 maybe 6’3 5/8 is because if one person is 6’3.25 or 6’3 3/8 at a low then 1/4” isn’t as noticeable. Now I go with 6’3.25 because of how he looks with Barkley Kobe and with Neeson. Neeson had 2cm on Conan when he met him. I would leave some room and say Rob may have underlisted Neeson for his peak by a hair. Maybe 6’4 1/8 or 1/4 although I still think 193-193.5 for him. That puts Conan around Mickey’s height

@Canson: I'm guessing you're referring to Danimal? There's plenty of things I don't agree with him on, including Conan, but he's been a regular poster for years so his opinion is as valid as anyone's. I wouldn't say it's exactly the same either since Barkley changes his height claim like most people change their socks while Conan has only claimed the 6'4" and 6'4.5" as far as I know. But Conan is apparently not the only reason Danimal thinks Barkley is 6'5.5"-6'6". He recently gave his reasoning on 10/Oct/18 on Rock's page and didn't mention Conan. My point isn't whether all of our reasoning is sound or not. Just that opinion is far too divided on Barkley to say there's a consensus.

Back to Merriman, how tall is he with Magic? Click Here Is that 5" or just 4"? And does Magic have a camera advantage and is one or the other losing more height with posture?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Nov/18
@Canson

Chane should've slouched a bit for his measurement so he could've passed under the limit.
Canson said on 9/Nov/18
@Rising: I also see that some of the posters below (1 in particular) takes and uses Conan’s claim of 6’4-6’4 1/2 as evidence that he is that height when that’s his shoe height. 191-192 is arguable for Conan as a barefoot height. By deduction he has Barkley at 6’5 1/2 which is his shoe height. That is inconsistent that he takes one’s claims but not the other’s claim.

As for Merriman, I would agree on however and have said he looks 6’2 1/2 vs a flat 6’2 or shorter
Canson said on 8/Nov/18
@Viper: this is an example of a wide variance between a pre draft (NBA). Chane Behanan. His NBA pre draft measurement is 6’6” while his measurement at the PBA (which has a height ceiling) was 6’5 1/16 which is close to an inch. While I think the obvious that the NBA measurement likely isn’t 100% accurate, I also see him possibly going for an extreme low just to make it there

Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Nov/18
Short video of staredown with 5'11.5" Rampage: Click Here Even with Shawne tilting his head down(though the camera is on his side), I don't see anywhere near 4.5", but here's Rampage with Chuck Liddell: Click Here Click Here Shawne looks 6'2.5" with Rampage, but can look 6'4" with Liddell or at least 6'3"+. I still can't make complete sense of that. The other interesting thing is Shawne telling the nurse he thought he was 6'5" when he measured 6'4.5" when that should come as no surprise if he measured 1/8" below that at the combine or a very pleasant surprise if he was 6'2" range at the combine like when Van Damme was almost literally jumping for joy after his mother measured him 177 cm. It's kind of weird since you'd think he'd remember his combine measurement one way or the other.

For the purposes of comparing, I'd agree 6'4.75"-6'5" range is fair as middle ground for Barkley or Rob's 6'4.9" listing. 2.5" is possible since it's barely different than 2.25" or whatever I said before. If it were only me that suspected Barkley was taller then I'd say "safe to say" might be a fair way to put it, but with other regulars like Vegas, JT and Danimal along with the average guess, safe to say isn't the right way to put it, but I digress.
Canson said on 8/Nov/18
@Viper: in his prime or near it, he looked close with Chick Hearn and could pull off 6’3 next to Magic at times. Other times he does look 6’2

West is listed at 6-2. He doesn't look taller than that.

The 6-7.1 could be legit, since he measured 6-6 5/8 I believe.

So he's a 6-6 1/2 guy rounded down

If we go by Rob's own Barkley listing at 6-4.75, Merriman looks 6-2.25.

6-2 3/8 Max.

That's 2.5 inches at least with Merriman and Barkley.

That picture just shows Merriman isn't close to 6-4.

We can safely say Barkley is between
6-4.5 and 6-5.
viper said on 5/Nov/18
Glennon measured 6-6 5/8 another time I think.

Osweiler is really a 6-6 1/2 guy
Canson said on 5/Nov/18
@Viper: I noticed with Glennon that he supposedly measured 6071 and is listed at 6’6 then Paxton Lynch measured 6065 and is listed at 6’7” in the NFL.
Canson said on 4/Nov/18
@Viper: they say Osweiler is 6’8 at times because he was listed at that in college. He is listed at 6’7” today in the programs but he did measure practically 6’7”. 6’6 7/8 is 6’7” for all intents and purposes. Of course on this site we know that height varies but for the NFL it’s just another measurement and is what they go by maybe outside of the organizations themselves. I also think a lot of that has to do with him being very tall for a QB. They play off that
Canson said on 4/Nov/18
@Rising: Merriman can look different heights. There are times when he looks 6’4 as well. It’s possible Viper underestimated him by a tad but I would say maybe by an inch. I agree 6’2.5. And if Viper didn’t see footwear or Merriman had bad posture then not sure
Canson said on 4/Nov/18
@Viper: May very well be a fallacy

Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Nov/18
Came across the Barkley pic by accident after failing when I actually tried to search for it lol: Click Here Imo, there's more than a 2" difference. I'd say around 5.5 cm or 2.25" minimum assuming Barkley has a 10" head. It's always possible one guy is being pushed down with the arm around shoulder, but it doesn't really look like that to me and Barkley's posture seems casual. I don't see the camera favoring Barkley either and their heads actually look close in size, which seems accurate since Shawne looks to have a big head himself. Of course, Barkley's height is almost as contested as Shawne's, but it's still interesting.

Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Nov/18
I looked into Shawne a little on my own and a couple of comparisons stand out. First, with 6'0.75" listed Chuck Liddell at 2 events: Click Here Click Here First pic he looks about solid 6'3" to me with maybe a little worse posture, but possible camera advantage, but in the second pic he looks closer to 6'4", albeit with better posture. Don't know if there's a camera advantage there. But then there's this with Derek Fisher: Click Here I figure Fisher is around 6'0" next to Kobe and Obama and in that case, I don't see Shawne over 6'2.5" next to him. It's possible there's something as far as posture or camera, but again, I don't know. As for Liddell, I think he has to be close to his listing seeing him with 5'10" Mike Tyson: Click Here He looks a couple of inches taller, but there's no doubt he's losing height from posture and probably camera. Curious what everyone thinks of both comparisons since Shawne does look 6'3"-6'4" range with Chuck, but 6'2" range with Fisher.

@viper: You saw Shawne on the pavement circle around the stadium? I'm not familiar with the stadium since the only sports event I've been to in Maryland was an Oriole game in 1994, but did you notice how level the ground seemed?

@Viper: I remember Booger McFarland said he’s 6’0” during the game he broke the record against the Redskins a few weeks ago and that Drew Brees wasn’t any more than 5’10”. Now that could be a bit of a stretch as Brees measured 5’11 7/8 as well as 6’0.25. Maybe 5’11 is a worst case if he were wearing some lifts in his socks etc. I’ve also heard Booger is really 5’11” in an article about when he was in college and he admitted that to a reporter despite being listed 6’1”. Booger measured 6’0 1/2 at the combine

Canson said on 24/Oct/18
@Rising: you make excellent points. My main reason for challenging Eli’s measurement is based on how he looks next to Ben. Ben looks taller yet only 1/8” difference exists. I could buy Eli as high as 194cm potentially because the difference with Peyton may appear more than it is at times. It may only be around 2cm
viper said on 24/Oct/18
Yeah I know who Russ Par is
Rising - 174 cm said on 24/Oct/18
Canson: I guess that's possible since many think Eli is more a solid 6'4" than weak 6'5" and he was always shorter than Peyton. It's also possible the 6'4.75" was an hour after waking. Though Eli did have at least 3" on Alex Rodriguez, albeit with thicker sneakers. But Eli being shorter would prove my point even more about how unusual it would be to measure 6'4"+ and be listed 6'3" throughout your college career.

Canson said on 19/Oct/18
@Viper: I’m beginning to question the validity of combines for some. I noticed that listing you sent out for the Redskins where Lavar measures 6’3 and Darnerian McCants measured 6’4. They are 6’2.2 and 6’3 on their listings you sent out and the latter was listed 6’3” his entire career as opposed to 6’4”.
Rising - 174 cm said on 19/Oct/18
@Canson: All I can say is I always thought Wiley looked believable at a legit 6'4" so I bought the measurement when I saw it, but I don't know the time of day and I haven't actually compared his height to any measured guys so I don't know if he drops under it or not. I tend to agree Wiley is taller viewing both pics, but the difference was much smaller in the one Andrea posted and I conceded I can't say with any certainty whether the posture difference is as great as the remaining height difference and footwear difference in that pic. Now in the other pic with Jackson, Merriman looks noticeably shorter than Wiley and doesn't look a believable 6'4" with Jackson while Wiley does, but I did acknowledge from the start that Merriman was at the disadvantage there. The question is how much disadvantage there. For whatever reason, it's often with basketball players that Merriman can really look shorter.

Khaled's standing closer to the camera, but Merrimam doesn't seem to be over 6'1" in that pic, lol.
Rising - 174 cm said on 18/Oct/18
@Andrea: From what I've seen of Armie, I'd have to agree he's more like 6'4", especially since he does have better posture than many men that height. And you make a good point about those guys measured 6'2"-6'3" at the combine. Certainly, it's difficult to see how Merriman would be only 6'2.5" with those guys as he can pull off 6'4" and I'd also acknowledge that it's particularly difficult with Crews since footwear is seen there. I respect that you acknowledge he can look 6'2"-6'3" and that actual differences aren't always what they seem in photos. With that said, there's enough anecdotal and even visual evidence for me to not rule out 6'2.5" myself until I can explain why he can look that or still look into this guy some more. Rob mentioned thinking he drops quite a bit of height at times and I consider that a possibility, but I'm not sure whether his posture is all that bad yet a lot of the time such as with a presumably 6'0" or so Derek Fisher. The 6'3" college listings are interesting too in that they seem to be official and a constant on the 2002-2005 Maryland rosters even while his weight changed from 218 to 246 to 258 etc. Some NFL players do round down as much as Eli Manning's 6'4.75" combine height being rounded down to 6'4" by the Giants, but I'd think a player still trying to be in the NFL would be more reluctant to be listed shorter. As soon as I'm a bit more sure of this guy, I'll probably be able to narrow him down some more, but I won't rule out your position either. I just made the Seagal comment because Rob himself said he doubted there was much difference. That reminds me, Aaron Hernandez should really have a page here, imo.

Btw, does anyone still have the Barkley photo(s)? I saw them together years ago and specifically remember looking up Merriman's height to see what he was, but saw the 6'2"+ and the 6'4"+ and couldn't make sense of that so didn't look into it further until Shwane got a page here. I was looking at it more to try to judge Barkley's height back then so I don't remember the difference.

Canson said on 15/Oct/18
@Christian: that could even just be 3” with CM.

@Viper: if Calhoun’s measurement was valid then he would likely be 6’4 flat or 6’3 7/8 at a low. I would say Merriman looks about his Pro Day measurement with him (6’2.4). That could be 6’2.5 or 6’2 3/8.

Andrea said on 12/Oct/18
Rising, it is possible that Shawne's head size is a bit enhanced there, but nonetheless I believe he has a naturally bigger head size and eyelevel than Terry. Plus, if you look at the background, it looks like there's also some tilt in Terry's favor, so the height difference between them is probably no less than 2 inches in that picture. Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean that the actual height difference between them is as much as that, but I certainly have a hard time believing that they're only within half an inch of each other, which would be the case if Shawne was truly as low as 6'2.5 and Terry 6'2-6'2.25.
But again, that's just one of the many reasons why I struggle to see him as low as that, considering that this how he looks with people who were supposedly measured between 6'2 and 6'3, so anywhere around that 6'2.5 mark:
- with 6'2 1/8 measured Larry English ( Click Here ): Click Here
- with 6'2 4/8 measured Sean Taylor ( Click Here ): Click Here
- with 6'2 1/8 measured Mark Sanchez ( Click Here ): Click Here
- with 6'2 6/8 measured Melvin Fowler ( Click Here ): Click Here
- with 6'2 1/8 measured Jon Condo ( Click Here ): Click Here
- with 6'2 6/8 measured (and 6'2.25 listed) Tim Tebow: Click Here Click Here
Other than looking taller than 6'3+ measured guys, such as Shaun Philips, Nick Hardwick, Antonio Gates and Vernon Davis, of course.
As for Armie Hammer's pic, I am well aware of the fact that a pic like that is hardly conclusive, but it goes to show that he can even look taller than guys who are supposedly over 6'4, like Armie (although I personally have never guessed him much over 6'4), which certainly makes that 6'2.5 figure even harder to believe (let alone viper's 6'1.5-6'2 "estimate"). (Also, bear in mind that Armie is a guy who generally stands with great posture in pics, so I highly doubt he could potentially be standing much worse than Shawne, and in fact he seems to be standing quite well there.)
That being said, me neither, I still haven't made up my mind yet, but, as I said, I certainly have a hard time believing he's as low as 6'2.5 (or even lower), considering how often he looks noticeably taller than that.
Canson said on 11/Oct/18
@Rising: the combine heights are all early morning however. So Osgood is likely 6’4.5 or 6’4 3/8. I’ve seen Merriman with Shaquille Calhoun who also measured 6’4 3/8 (morning) and Calhoun is at least an inch taller which again puts Merriman at a solid 6’3 best case. Marcellus Wiley looks taller than Merriman imho and we aren’t sure if Wiley is a legit 6’4”. If he measured that at the combine, then I can bank on him being lower than that in the afternoon. I don’t have Merriman as low as Viper but 6’2.5 imho
Canson said on 10/Oct/18
@Viper: I could buy flat 6’2” for him. 6’1.5 looks a bit short. He may even be over 6’2” as I’d have guessed 6’2.5 in many pics. That’s why he and Davis can look close in height at times although i still give the edge to Davis

Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Oct/18
@Andrea: I meant all things being equal Shawne winds up looking a tiny bit shorter as in maybe 1 cm to a half inch and mostly because Shawne has about 1/8" hair while Wiley has a completely shaved head. I should have clarified what I meant by solid 6'3" range. I'll agree he looks to be dropping more height with his lean, but I don't know whether that posture difference is more than the footwear difference. Merriman standing up to Wiley's height doesn't look impossible in that photo. As for the Terry Crews pic, the top of their heads look a good 1.5" apart, maybe even 2", but do you think the difference in their head size is really as big as it looks in the photo? I honestly hadn't thought about how big either of their heads were, but it looks like about 1.5 to 2 cm difference in head size while the difference in eye level seems only around 3.5 cm difference to me since Terry's higher eye is a bit above the bottom of Merriman's nose.

Merriman does look roughly half an inch or so taller than 6'3.1" Shawn Phillips without considering there's some variables with Merriman slouching and further from the camera while Phillips is leaning in some himself. In those 2007 group photos, Shawne does look a bit taller than 6'3.75" Nick Hardwick and a bit shorter than 6'4.9" Kassim Osgood so I'd agree he looks a solid 6'4" or even a bit over in those pics depending on what the low angle does and how LT and Lorenzo Neal factor in. The pic with 6'3.5" Antonio Gates is a bit trickier, though. Gates is closer to the camera and the top of Merriman's head might still be a tiny bit higher, but he has his arms around Gates' shoulder while Gates is leaning in and actually has a higher eye level. Imo, there's too many variables in that photo. 6'3"-6'3.25" Vernon Davis is tricky too because they look very close to me in the waist up photo where they seem to be standing similarly side by side. The top of their heads can look almost indistinguishable to me, but Merriman barely has any hair and his eye level does look higher, but I can't tell from the full photo where Vernon is standing closer, but slouching off to the side. Of course there's the other photo where Vernon looks like he'd be taller: Click Here It's a flawed photo, but I think this shows how much height can vary in photos from the waist up with the camera close. Otherwise, the pic where he's looking taller posing with a supposedly 6'4.5" Armie Hammer would be pretty shocking as I think we can agree Shawne is not 6'5" since even the nurse measurement and other draft measurement put him a half inch or 5/8" below that. The photo where he towers Reggie Bush by 5" while visibly leaning does make him look like he'd easily clear 6'3" and might be closer to 6'4", but as I mentioned with some of viper's pics as well, ground level on grass is always a variable. This guy still confuses me, though as he does genuinely look a solid 6'4" in some of your photos and at least 6'3.5" in others, but then you have him in a seemingly good pic with 6'1" listed(6'1.5" combine) Adrian Peterson and he doesn't look anywhere near it. So I still haven't made up my mind yet.

6-3 Vernon is taller than Merriman in pics and video

There was a pic from 2005 where 6-3 Vernon was clearly taller. I remember Vegas commenting on it.

And Merriman looks 6-1.5 in that 2006 pic, even If it's tilted a bit. That's 1.5 inches at least.

Flat 6-2 is what he really is

I'd be surprised If Merriman is the same height as 6-2.5 Wiz
