Canson I was watching an old Maryland basketball game and Buck Williams looked slightly taller standing next to 6-8 listed Terry Gates at the free throw line.
Canson said on 22/Feb/19
@Christian: that 1cm could’ve made the difference. If he wore boots especially he may have been say 6’4.25 with the extra cm and really could’ve been upper 6’2 range barefoot in the morning
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Feb/19
@viper
I doubt Merriman's anything over 250 lbs today. He has slimmed down some since he retired. As for his doctor's measurement, occasionally doctors and nurses do mismeasure people when they don't bring the stadiometer's board all the way down to the head. One time I was overmeasured by about 2cm, but I had thick hair back then. Merriman didn't have thick hair to the point of being overmeasured by 2cm. If he was overmeasured, I doubt it was more than a cm.

Ironically the only reason I saw him up close in 2006 was because he was suspended for steroids attending the Maryland-Miami football game.
Canson said on 20/Feb/19
@Viper: no less than 3” for sure and that looks low. Looks over 3” really
Canson said on 20/Feb/19
@Christian: hate to say it but he may have used steroids (I don’t want to sound like I’m accusing him of it). He did get suspended earlier on in his career as that was around the time that Viper and I saw him

Akeem Ayers is 6-2 254. Click Here

As you can see he looks way smaller than Merriman.
Mickie said on 20/Feb/19
Hard for me to see why this guy is listed above 6'3". He was listed as that in college, and very rarely can manage to look more than that (quite honestly, he looks 6'2").
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 19/Feb/19
@Rob
But that doesn't mean anything. Some people can weigh heavier than what they seem. 272 at 6'2"-6'3" isn't unbelievable at that size, especially when you notice how he was a lot bigger in 2005 than he is in recent years. If you're not even gonna list him at 6'3", then you should at least list him 6'3 3/8" here, since both the 6'2 3/8" and 6'4 3/8" listings have been highly debated on this site. That would only be fair.
viper said on 19/Feb/19
Or he was just flat out measured wrong.

It's happened to me at the doctor at least 3 times. Both more and less
viper said on 19/Feb/19
Staring at Rising's screencaps, that's an easy 4 inches.

Merriman looks what I saw him as.
viper said on 19/Feb/19
Nobody thinks Russell Westbrook is 6-2 If you look around.

They think he's 6-4-6-5.
Canson said on 19/Feb/19
@Viper: I would hope that nobody would do that. However, if someone has very poor posture and a significant footwear advantage on someone it’s entirely possible. However, you say that he had decent posture. But it’s possible he’s 6’2-6’2.5 range and you mistook him for being shorter
viper said on 19/Feb/19
Merriman looks between 250 and 260 today.

He has claimed 260 on twitter
viper said on 19/Feb/19
Good example of how much bigger Merriman was.

Look how much bigger Merriman looked right after his rookie season in 2006.

It's almost like a different guy. Definitely looks 270 plus pounds there compared to today.
viper said on 19/Feb/19
Yes, he was over 270 in 2005.

He looked like Batista in a couple of photos.

In his 2005 profile pic look how gigantic his neck was. Click Here

And your weight at either 6-2 or 6-3 isn't much difference anyway.

He was found to have steroids in his system.
Canson said on 19/Feb/19
@Rob: the weight may be embellished as well, who knows. But remember that Merriman was banned for using steroids. I’m not bashing him for it but it is a fact that he did get caught using them. And he did have a listing at the Pro Day and before the draft of 6’2, 274lbs. Not to mention he was only listed 6’3” at Maryland not 6’4”. I highly doubt he grew as it is more than likely that he was already slightly over listed in college. He was a junior when he came out so likely was done for quite some time growing

As far as the references above, it’s fair to add the video with Bennett as it matches up closely with his Pro Day just as you said the video with the nurse “claiming” to measure him aligns closely with his Combine.

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Feb/19
@Canson
I give him 6'2.25" worst case. A 6'2.25" guy can easily be mistaken for 6'2" flat. My theory is that he was measured 6'4.25" in the morning with shoes on, and was rounded up to 6'4.5" by the nurse. Some shoes can easily give 1.25" of course, so he would be 6'3" barefoot at morning, and you subtract 3/4" so you get 6'2.25" at night.
viper said on 18/Feb/19
At 6-3 I can measure 6-5.5 in my brother's bigger shoe size raising my toes inside.
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Viper: I agree with Rob that at times he can give off a shorter impression but I also agree that he’s 6’2 range versus 6’4 or even 6’3.5. This is easily one of the worst listings on the site. Even 6’3 is better
Editor Rob
The thing is, I don't know if anybody would offer help in trying to see what his actual records say. Would the NFL admit to a mistake...
viper said on 18/Feb/19
Im not gonna mistake a 6-4 guy with perfect posture for 6-1.5-6-2 up close.
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Viper: that’s interesting. Lamont Jordan shows a 5’10 1/4” combine listing. That goes to show that they aren’t always accurate.
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Rob: it’s entirely possible that the 6’2 3/8 he measured at the Pro Day is the same measurement he received at the Combine. Viper also posted where Julian Peterson shows 6’5.1 at the combine but is really only around 6’3” as that’s what he’s listed at in the NFL. It’s more than likely that his measurement was 6’3 1/8 as opposed to 6’5 1/8”. Meaning he may just be 6’2.75 at a low whereas Merriman May only be 6’2” range as well. That video with Martellus Bennett who is 6’5.75 at a low is by far the best judgment as both are barefoot. That’s over 3” between them so the most I could buy is 6’2.5. Even a full 6’3” is a much better listing than this one since you said yourself that you thought it was 3” between them and Bennett measured 6’6 1/8 in the morning
Editor Rob
It's a big error if it's true. Either he was 6ft 2 3/8th or 6ft 4 3/8ths. His 274 weight doesn't make as much sense if he was only 6ft 2, but more if he was over 6ft 3.
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Christian: actually 6’2” flat is possible. if Martellus Bennett is 6’5.75 at a low which Viper provided proof of in a different post here, there is a chance of 6’2” flat for Merriman. I used to believe 6’2.5 would be the better listing. However with the video I doubt it’s more than 4” but could see 3-4” meaning 6’2.5 could be equally as feasible. One thing I’m confused on is the other video where the nurse measured him. It was likely in shoes and in the AM perhaps but that may signal more of 6’2.5ish if that’s the case
SnerhagAip777 said on 18/Feb/19

Editor Rob
A big question is if the NFL put out there at the draft he was 6ft 4 3/8th and he wasnt, then mistakes happen or the NFL can make up figures.
viper said on 16/Feb/19
"There's certainly a fair amount of photos/clips which can be used to say he is under 6ft 3,"


And 2 sources saying he measured 6-2 at his pro day, with a specific 6-2.4
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Feb/19
@Rampage
Yet I don't see you calling his unbelievable 6'4 3/8" "measurement" as "nonsense". While I don't believe he's as low as 6'2" flat, there's sure as heck of a better chance of him being that than being 6'4 3/8".
viper said on 16/Feb/19

viper said on 16/Feb/19
Rampage you do upgrade so many here by 1-2 inches.

Have you watched the video? You can't argue Merriman is taller than 6-2
viper said on 16/Feb/19
Rob, Merriman has perfect posture with barefoot Martellus Bennett on video and looks 6-2. He looks 4 inches shorter.

That's the best evidence there will be. Best evidence maybe ever on this board.

Both guys barefoot on video.
viper said on 16/Feb/19
Sorry Rampage but you have blinders on.

I saw Merriman up close with perfect posture looking 6-1.5-6-2. Others have said he looks 6-2 in person

He was measured at 6-2 at his pro day.

He looks 6-2 at most BAREFOOT with a
6-5.7-6-6.1 BAREFOOT Martellus Bennett.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Feb/19
Ron, do you seriously believe this 6ft2 nonsense?
Editor Rob
People are entitled to believe whatever figure they like. There's certainly a fair amount of photos/clips which can be used to say he is under 6ft 3, but I personally haven't seen enough to think of giving him such a figure and would still say he might be a guy who walks and stands shorter than he measures.
viper said on 16/Feb/19
Rob could you post the Martellus video up top in the description. Thanks
viper said on 16/Feb/19
Agree Canson. The Martellus video is the best evidence by far since both are barefoot.
Canson said on 15/Feb/19
@Christian: 6’3” is a good start for him. I still believe he’s 6’2” range but we can tell for the most part that he’s not over 6’3”. I don’t understand how and why the Martellus Bennett video isn’t factored into the listing or even description since it’s clear that that is not just a 1.75” difference even assuming we are only using their combine listings when we saw that Bennett was 6’5.75 a different time later in the day. While a 3.5 or 4” difference looks most feasible I would say it is no possible way it’s less than 3”.
Canson said on 15/Feb/19
@Rob and Viper: being Viper also provided that Bennett is 6’5,75 at a low it’s safe to say that Merriman likely isn’t more than 6’2.75 since you alluded to 3” difference between the two. While I believe 6’2” I think then 6’3 is a good start for him. Even in the video where he was measured at the doctor we saw on the replies to him claiming 6’5” someone else said 6’3” although that looks like a shoe measurement. He’s definitely not anywhere near 6’4”.
viper said on 13/Feb/19
Carson Edwards measured 6-1.5 in shoes.

Yet he's 5-10.75

Could be the same reason Merriman measured so high in that video.

It's not a really easy way to compare. You'd have to line up Austin's head in proportion with both Merriman's and Kelly's pic, and see the difference between Merriman and Kelly. But the problem is that the camera positioning isn't that great with the Kelly pic.

Merriman looks about 4 cm taller than Trump in that pic. I don't think he gets much advantage despite being slightly closer to the camera and he might be slouching more, though not nearly enough to get him close to 6'4" since Trump himself rarely stands his full height.

viper said on 12/Jan/19
Mo Alie-Cox was supposedly measured at 6-6, yet he's listed at 6-5. One site even lists him at 6-4
Canson said on 12/Jan/19
@Mickie: it’s similar to the video with Martellus Bennett. Bennett measured 6’6 1/8 at the combine and in the link Viper provided he was 6’5.75 (they rounded him up to 6’5.8) when he was measured a different time. Even if Rising Christian Viper and I all overestimated the difference between them by a tad it’s still over a 3” difference. Even a solid 3” between them makes Merriman more like 6’2.75. I think a downgrade to 6’2.5 is the best fit but my personal opinion is he’s 6’2” based on that. Rudy Gay called him 6’2” when he met him as well

@Viper: Sharpe I can believe as a strong 6’1” guy mainly because others are overlisted. I saw where you commented on Steve Smith. He’s 5’8” range from what I’ve seen. I agree on Strahan too 6’4 not 6’5”. Likely flat 6’4. Kobe looked 1” taller but may be the angle and may just be 2cm. You were saying he looked 6’2” in person but turned out strong 6’1. Maybe he had footwear advantage on you when you saw him. It’s like with when I saw John larroquette. I thought he was taller than my Dad but likely he had a footwear advantage when he walked past us or that he was standing straighter. It was also some 25-27 years ago when I saw him and I wasn’t as height aware as I am today which started because I see people all the time claim taller than they are and used to wonder why but now I know. As for Larroquette seeing pics on Night Court with Richard Moll I can agree with most that he looked 6’4” as opposed to almost 6’5”. At most he could’ve been my height prime 6’4.25ish

There's no way he's 6-2. I'd say 6-0 max, but physically looks shorter than even that at times.

As with Shannon Sharrpe, as I said on the Mark Henry page, just because Rob thought he looked 6-2 IMO doesn't make it so. Nobody is perfect.

IMO Mark Henry is 6-1. He's been listed at 6-1.
Editor Rob
sometimes guessing from our own perspective can increase a range of error, but when you have other people whose height you know standing or interacting with a celebrity, it can be helpful.

@Christian: they don’t look really big there but I will say as well that Merriman to my eyes does not look anything more proportionately than a 6’2” guy in that pic. Of course you can’t go off that strictly but he doesn’t look like a 6’4” guy either or 6’3

@viper

This might be a randon question, but how tall is your brother?
Canson said on 18/Dec/18
@184guy: from the video that Viper posted of Bennett and Merriman, Viper’s estimate is very believable. Viper has him 6’1.5-6’2”. Now I would say he’s a flat 6’2” more than likely as he measured 6’2 3/8 at his Pro Day. I saw where Bennett measured 6’6 1/8 at the combine but 6’5.75 another time later in the day. If that isn’t 4”, I would say it’s at least 3.5. I know Christian and Rising both also said it was at least 3.5” if not 4”. I would’ve said 4” but I’ll leave open 3.5 maybe a tad under. Maybe 6’2.25 for Merriman if the case which almost lines up with his Pro Day. I originally had him at 6’2.5 when his page came up on the site about 10 months back

@viper

I have him somewhere around 6'3. If you are 6'2.75 makes sense to think you could be taller because both of you are pretty near . Sometimes for example I think that I'm taller or as tall as a 6'1.75 friend when I'm clearly not while others I felt to be as short as a 5'11-6' guy that I know . Height perception is very trick . I'm pretty sure that almsot everytime that Rob guesses someones height , he try to use a third person to help the guess
Canson said on 16/Dec/18
@Viper: unfortunately some people here (won’t mention names) believe the combines and pre drafts. Even going as far as to inflate others just because so and so is “on record” at this height

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.

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.

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

He barely looks any taller than 6-3 Darryl Morsell.

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.

@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

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”.

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

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.

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.

@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.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 20/Nov/18
@Vlakit

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.

There's certainly some rounding happening, maybe in rare cases they have a gentleman's agreement to alter a listing for whatever purpose.

@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.

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
viper said on 15/Nov/18

viper said on 14/Nov/18
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.
