I think if nothing else maybe start him at 6’3.5 vs 6’4. That still looks Too high imho. But it’s not as bad as 6’4
Canson said on 14/Feb/18
@Andrea: that’s actually a good point. The intent at 6’3 was to split it since we’re undecided. I honestly
Feel (my opinion) after what I’ve seen that he isn’t 6’4 or even close. To me he’s not gonna measure 6’3.5-6’4. And you’re right 6’4.3 would be right out of bed if he’s a weak 6’4 afternoon since the variance is only 3/8 or 1/2” for the other players measured (at least in 2006) from an afternoon measurement. It said the players woke and got drug tested in 2006 at least before measuring and the net was about that. That points to possibly max an hour after waking or even less as most lose 1/4-3/8 after being awake an hour. But then having seen him with Shilique Calhoun who also measured 6’4 3/8 in the morning he’s clearly shorter more than just half inch. Meaning if Calhoun is 6’3 7/8 or 6’4 Merriman isn’t as high as 6’3.5. But I was simply saying I feel Rob would put him at 6’3” before he downgraded him to 6’2” which may be better than 6’2 essentially because there is evidence in both directions 6’2 and 6’4 and quite honestly even 6’3. to many here he doesn’t look as low as 6’2”. But to many here on this page he doesn’t look 6’4. And then some even said doesn’t look above 6’3 or that 6’3 is the absolute max. 6’3” wouldn’t be all that bad actually considering Rob had a bunch of athletes here who were morning measured such as James Harden and Steph Curry who are both likely half inch less same with Blake Griffin (his not sure on because he looks under 6’8” to me especially with Deandre Jordan and Jamal Crawford) but looks closer to 6’8” than 6’7” flat next to Paul Pierce esp. in addition some of the more recent NFL players he still has listed at morning measurements such as Colin Kapernick or Gronkowski. so me telling Checker 6’3” was a better fit is more of me saying that Rob would most likely not lower him all the way to 6’2” since the case is flimsy and only say flimsy because like you said there is evidence in both directions. But I think the case is also very flimsy for 6’4 as well having said that.

If the 6’2.4 is his real measurement in that range vs 6’2” flat then he’d at least be 6’3 in the AM as well which is consistent with how he has a lot of athletes listed when he doesn’t have the luxury of having met them or enough evidence to say otherwise
Andrea said on 14/Feb/18
The key point is that that page, although it belongs to NFL's official website, has Shawne down at 6'2 AND Jon Condo down at 6'2 3/8, which just doesn't add up, considering that this how Shawne looks next to the same Jon: Click Here
Besides the fact that he looks comfortably taller than every other athlete measured in that 6'2 range:
- With measured 6'2 1/8 Larry English ( Click Here ): Click Here
- With measured 6'2 4/8 Sean Taylor ( Click Here ): Click Here
- With measured 6'2 1/8 Mark Sanchez ( Click Here ): Click Here
- With measured 6'2 6/8 Melvin Fowler ( Click Here ): Click Here
- With listed 6'2.25 Tim Tebow (who was supposedly measured at 6'2.75!!!): Click Here Click Here
- With listed 6'2.5 The Rock: Click Here
- With listed 6'2.25 Terry Crews: Click Here
I agree that next to Shilique he can look closer to 6'3, but I think he's simply dropping more height than him there and he could stand taller than he is there. In fact, he does look taller than 6'3 guys like Vernon Davis and Shaun Philips. Speaking of Vernon, we even have two different (good) pictures where Shawne does look taller. How much is arguable... It may well be less than an inch, but I highly doubt they are the same height (let alone Shawne being shorter than Vernon).
Oh, and for those who say that he is shorter than Marcellus Wiley, I'm not sure about that: Click Here In that other picture that has been posted Shawne simply doesn't seem to be standing at his tallest and the camera position also seems to be favoring Marcellus's side a bit...
Andrea said on 14/Feb/18
One thing is sure. Giving him 6'3 would make no sense, unless you think that both of those two alleged measurements are erroneous of course, because 1) if you assume that the true measurement is the 6'4 3/8 one, there's no way he can be as low as 6'3 flat, especially considering that no athlete gets measured directly out of bed and 2) if you assume that the true measurement is the 6-2.4 one, there's no way he can be as high as 6'3 (if anything, he can be shorter than that figure but certainly not taller). So the question is: is he more 6'2-6'2.5 or 6'3.5-6'4? Considering that he looks taller than every athlete measured in that 6'2-6'2.5 range, he's got to be somewhere in that 6'3.5-6'4 zone, although he can certainly look shorter than that at times...
Canson said on 14/Feb/18

The page that has him 6’2 274 is no less official than the combine’s if it surfaced on the NFL website. Sure Either of them could be a mistake. Doesn’t necessarily have to be the 6’2.4 or the 6’2. It could be the 6’4.3, as well. Next to Vince Young (6’4 5/8 in the morning) he doesn’t look anything remotely close to a weak 6’4. And with Davis there are some pics where he looks shorter as well. Depends on which pics are used. Even in the ones you posted it’s impossible to say that Merriman is taller than Davis to be honest. But the young pic he clearly looks much shorter. Then with Shilique Calhoun he looks clearly shorter. I don’t agree with what Checker said that it’s 2.5” but it appears that it’s about 1.5”. Even if we said it’s a solid inch like you said, Calhoun was measured in the morning so that puts him max 6’4 (maybe 6’3 7/8) meaning Merriman would be max 6’3 (maybe 6’2 7/8). But if you say Merriman edges Davis then Calhoun has substantially more height on Merriman than Merriman has on Davis. It’s double

I doubt Rob would list Shawne at 6’2.5” unless if he meets him in person unfortunately. I asked him to put in the description the link where Shawne was measured 6’2.4” and he didn’t even do that.
Editor Rob
There was no indication from where the measurement was supposed to have come from. The same site also had Drew Brees at 6ft 1.0 remember. We all know he measured lower than that.
Of course I did link to an actual screengrab from a paper, which did show he was called 6ft 2.
Canson said on 13/Feb/18
@Rob: yea I have to agree with Checker here. Not to mention he met him and it adds up to what he described as 6’2”. Maybe a flat 6’2” is low but There is absolutely no chance Merriman is over 6’3 and it’s even highly likely he’s not even that tall. Here’s Vince Young with Merriman. That’s definitely over an inch difference. Even if it’s only 1.5 (we can’t see the top of their heads under the hats), it still would mean Merriman would be under 6’3 later in the day. We can’t see their footwear but that’s how he appears in several other pics as well including Shilique Calhoun (morning measured at the same exact listing Merriman got 6’4 3/8 yet clearly taller with Calhoun leaning a tad), Marcellus Wiley (like 184guy pointed out along with Harry Sachs) and even with Vernon Davis he looks shorter in some pics and at best the same in others.

Click Here

And it states right in the 2nd article below that the 2006 NFL combine was early morning that year (6am), Not to mention the Senior Bowl measurements are in the last link below. There is 3/8-1/2” difference between every player measured in the Senior Bowl vs the combine comparing the two. Meaning Young at 76.6 is more like 6’4 1/4” at best or even 6’4 1/8 in the afternoon.

I doubt he’s gonna drop him that low. Not Rob’s style if he hasn’t met him to go that low but I’d say maybe 6’3” is fair since he almost never looks over that. I agree with you he’s 6’2” range even if it’s a strong 6’2 vs a solid one but Rob plays it safe
Canson said on 13/Feb/18
@Checker: that’s a great pic. if that doesn’t confirm that he at least isn’t 6’4” I don’t know what else would

He looks 6'0.5-6'1 with 6'1 7/8 Marcus Allen
checker said on 13/Feb/18
Rob could you put him at 6'2 1/2 at least. has him at 6'2, The newspaper has him at 6'2, Couchscout has him at 6'2.4, Rudy Gay says hes 6'2.

Its not all a coincidence
Canson said on 12/Feb/18
@Christian: Im not sure actually. It looks like he does have one 6’2” flat and that’s his pro day below. But then one 6’2.4 senior bowl then one 6’4 3/8 combine then UMD listing 6’3 then the NFL 6’4 then himself 6’5 lol. My guess is like yours prob strong 6’2 maybe 6’2 1/4is real for him. But he’s not as tall as Davis or Manley or Calhoun

Andrea said on 12/Feb/18
That other page that has been posted ( Click Here ), which describes Shawne as "6-2, 274", is a funny one because it also has Jon Condo down at "6-2 3/8, 244". Now, it is certainly hard to buy those figures, considering that this is how Shawne looks next to the same Jon: Click Here
Now, we have two possible measurements: 6-2.4 (which only appeared on couchscout, an unofficial site that has also been proven to be not exempt of errors) and 6'4 3/8 (which appeared on NFL's official site nfldraftscout, other than more than one paper). Although I agree that he doesn't quite look 6'4 3/8 (at his low), 6-2.4 certainly seems too low, considering that he looks comfortably taller than every athlete who was measured around that range. So that 6-2.4 figure must have been a typo or something and the true measurement must be the 6'4 3/8 one (although probably very early in the morning and maybe busting a gut). I can see how he can look more around 6'3 at times, but I think he's got to clear that mark when he stands tall (especially since there's no way he could be as low as that if he measured 6'4 3/8 at any point of the day, or even 6-2.4 for that matter). In fact, he looks taller than athletes measured in 6'3 range as well (how much is arguable):
- With measured 6'3 2/8 Vernon Davis ( Click Here ): Click Here Click Here
- With measured 6'3 1/8 Shaun Philips ( Click Here ): Click Here
A weak 6'4 is probably a better shout, but 6'2 is a joke!
Canson said on 12/Feb/18
@Christian: yep! And I agree maybe 6’2.25 or 6’2 3/8 Strong 6’2 is fair. He told me 6’2ish”.
Canson said on 12/Feb/18
@HarrySachs: I think it’s the other way around Lewis looks taller imho. Maybe that’s today tho. But that’s also assuming that 6’4.75 is a low for either guy.
Canson said on 12/Feb/18

Canson said on 11/Feb/18
@Junior: after seeing pics with Shilique Calhoun that checker posted an absolute best is 6’3”. Sure he can look 6’4” in some pics but being he measured 6’2 as well it casts doubt. Don’t know which is true but it’s hard to believe 6’4 3/8 when he’s clearly shorter than Shilique Calhoun standing next to him when Calhoun measures that in the AM most likely. The pics Andrea posted may have them similar but he even said on boris’s page that it was an inch difference. The pic Checker posted of them is a better pic than the one posted on this page. And It looks more than an inch more 1.5”. Even if it’s just an inch a morning measurement for Calhoun would make him 6’3 7/8 or 6’4 at best in the afternoon. Meaning Merriman (using that) is 6’2 7/8 or 6’3 at best. But then there are pics with Barkley where it looks a full 2”. And Manley where he’s an inch shorter. Ditto for Vernon Davis, Andrea posted pics where Davis and he look the same but none of the ones where he clearly looks shorter. Even in that pic I don’t believe He’s as tall as Davis. That’s camera angle. Davis looks “physically” taller than Merriman despite that
Canson said on 11/Feb/18
Well, Andrea he was measured at 6’2 on Pro Day. So for you to say what you did is untrue. You can’t choose which measurement is convenient for your argument. He has both so means that there is a possibility of him being either. And This is on the NFL website so not the same case with the Senior Bowl site where you don’t think it’s legitimate. And 6’2.4 at the senior bowl. Not to mention the other article at 6’2 below (which Rob posted above as well). But also has a listed height at MD of 6’3 and a listed height in the NFL at 6’4” and a pre draft at 6’4 3/8. Yet he claims 6’5”. Truth is his height can look over the place and so are the pictures below. Even more so than Boris. That said while he can “supposedly” look 6’4” it doesn’t mean that the pics or references of 6’2” range should be ignored when there are just as many pics of him measuring and looking it as well. Guess we can debate it but you can’t simply say something “doesn’t exist” or that he didn’t measure 6’2” when there is a measurement on record And then say there is no evidence of it just because you have your beliefs one way or the other. That’s actually a bit biased and dishonest to tell you the truth.

Canson Charles Barkley is roughly the same height if not slightly taller than the 6'4 3/4 Lennox Lewis.
Canson said on 11/Feb/18
@Junior: his height looks all over the place but I have to agree with Checker and also harry Sachs and 184guy said it too he never looks 6’4. I believe the 6’4.3 was not accurate for him. Seeing as how Barkley also looks 2” taller than him in their pic. Maybe he’s close to 6’3” but he’s got a 6’2 and a 6’4 measurement. The latter is hard to believe when 6’3” Vernon Davis and 6’3 dexter Manley and a (Morning 6’4 3/8) shilique Calhoun look taller than him same with Barkley. With rock that’s not 2” imho and the rock doesn’t appear to stand straight
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 10/Feb/18

Also one of your friends met Shanwe and said he looked about 6’2”. I don’t know if he’s as low as 6’2” but I think 6’2.25” or best case 6’2.4” for him like how he was measured.
HarrySachs said on 10/Feb/18
184guy I was going to say the same thing. Clearly Wiley is taller than Merriman. Wiley says he is 6'4 so I would say Merriman might be under 6'3
highlysuspect said on 10/Feb/18
Looks closer to 190 cm. And checker the reason he doesn’t look that much taller than rampage is because rampage is under listed by 1/2 inch at least
Andrea said on 10/Feb/18
He looks taller than every single athlete who was measured in 6'2 and 6'3 range (other than having been measured 6'4 3/8 at one point of the day), yet some people still try to say that he was "measured" at 6'2, LFMAO.
Canson said on 10/Feb/18
@Checker: that’s assuming Omar really is 6’5.5. He can look 6’5 to be honest but that looks prob a 3” diff with Merriman too. But there is more evidence to suggest 6’2 (at times 6’3) than 6’4. He’s notifeably shorter than Barkley Calhoun Manley and even Davis imho. Same with Magic. I believe Rob has Magic overlisted. He never looked more than maybe 201 peak. I’ve seen him next to Kurt Rambis and Rambis while listed 6’8” his entire career on paper was still taller than Magic. Same with Worthy and Jamal Wilkes. Wilkes (assuming he was a full 6’6) didn’t look that much shorter than magic maybe an inch or so. I leave that door open that Wilkes was 6’5.5 as well or 6’5.75 as there wasn’t a great difference with he and Michael Cooper who was 6’5-6’5.25 peak
Junior Hernandez said on 10/Feb/18
No. Merriman listing wasn't bad. Some photo angle were really bad and deceiving him shorter posted here. For some better camera angle like compare height to some 6'2 guys he look easily over 1.5" taller with 6'2 1/4 Rock, Tim Tebow and Terry Crews, so how could he be just 6'2-6'3? I would give 6'3 3/4 - 6'4 to him. Worst listing would be the actor Christopher Backus claim and listed 6'3 who easily look 6'4 and over with a little weak 6'0 Christopher Meloni, 6'0.25" Reed Diamond, surely not Merriman getting worst listing in this site. An inch or over under listed was rare and honestly i recently realise most of celebrities get over listed by an average 1/2" especially actors. NFL players listing was still fair enough.
Canson said on 10/Feb/18
@184guy: his height can look all over the place. I actually saw him once at a MD game years back and he was maybe 50 or 100 feet or so away from me (coming out of a different line at the concession stands). This was after he had been drafted. I assumed he was his listed height as I didn’t get a chance to really pay close attention as I wasn’t close enough to him. I assumed that he was near me in height from that distance but after seeing now with Shilique Calhoun and Dexter Manley and Vernon Davis who I’ve met (actually is 6’3) I can see for sure like you said that he isn’t 6’4. He looks 2” shorter than Charles Barkley as well. While I’ve pretty much assumed Barkley 6’4” range for the longest just based off teammates and other internet posters who’ve met him along with some friends that met him that puts Merriman absolutely no bigger than 6’3” like you said. That’s an absolute best case in my opinion
184guy said on 10/Feb/18
He looks visible shorter than Marcellus Wiley ( in the left) who is 6'4.
Probably not over 6'3

electricblue said on 9/Feb/18
flat 6 2 is just not possible. he never looks that short with other measured nfl players. it's extremely likely it was an error. he easily looks over 6 2 with rampage and he is clearly standing a bit more lax so they can meet each other in the eye. also we can't see footwear or perspective. in any case if that's the only evidence you have that he is 6 2 it is weak.
Paul NS (6ft0.5) said on 9/Feb/18
I'd say he looks over 2 inches taller than Rampage Jackson there. 6'3 is the lowest I'd go
Nick92 said on 9/Feb/18
@checker He would probably clear 190-191cm there. Rob from that picture with rampage alone he definitely is not 6ft4

He should be listed no higher than 6'2.5 here. Hes really a flat 6'2.

Database error! 6-02.4 was supposed to have been 6'-04.2
He has Multiple measurements of 6'4" & one random listing of 6'2-1/2",,, you figure it out.
Andrea said on 9/Feb/18
Yeah, that's exactly what I've been saying so far. That 6-2.4 figure must have been a typo or something... Although there are a few occasions where he can look as low as that (like this picture with listed 6'1 Ray Lewis Click Here ), he looks comfortably taller than that with way too many people to be as short as that. I still would say that he may well be more 6'3-6'4 than the full 6'4, but 6'2-6'3? I doubt it.
Junior Hernandez said on 9/Feb/18
I think the 6'2.4" is just a database error somebody type it wrongly. It could mean 6'3.5". Merriman look right on 6'4 with Terry Crews but i guage Crews is only a solid 6'2 guy, some picture by Andrea which the photo angle was quite bad we could tell Merriman can look a little shorter than some 6'4 guy but then other shots he look right on rob listed him. Merriman with 6'2 1/4 Rock also look to bang on 6'4 and look eye to eye with 6'4 Jared Goff. I can believe on 6' 3 3/4 lowest now and understand why some say he look under 6'3-6'4.

Exactly, Rob. As I said, I tried to contact the owner of the site on his personal FB account (the emails on the site didn't seem to work) to have more info and to see if he remembers where he got those data from, but he still hasn't answered (and at this point, I think he never will)...
One thing, if you take a look at the older version of the site, it even looks like that anyone could submit those data in the past: Click Here
Editor Rob
The bigger your dataset, the more prone it can be to some errors slipping in.

Look at this site, there will be small errors that creep in now and again.

I think Shawne at times can look in 6ft 3 range and can understand some estimates like that, but I don't believe he would measure as short as 6ft 2.5.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 8/Feb/18
Rob, at least add in the description where he was measured 6’2.4” Click Here
Editor Rob

Papers reported the 6ft 4 3/8th figure.

This couchscout has a 6ft 2.5 figure, but I'm not sure of the validity of it, exactly where did it come from.

Remember, Couchscout also has had Drew Brees at "BREES Drew 6- 1.0" Scroll Down.
