Andrea If that's true that's really bad news for you. It's all relative

You have made a thousand enemies on here. Nice going
Andrea said on 14/Jun/19
LOL, viper, you're so ed up!
Canson said on 12/Jun/19
@Viper: while I do believe Wade edges Merriman, the difference looks more pronounced because of the camera angle with Ross. Wade looks a weak 6’3” with 6’3.5 at best James Harden and with Bradley Beal. But I do agree 6’3” ish. He may be your height 6’2.75 at a low. I saw the measurements for Ben and Leftwich. Ben is around 6’4.75 on there whereas Leftwich shows 6’5 5/8 (6’5.6)? He was 6’5 3/8 at the combine and to add to all of that Merriman is shorter than Dexter Manley who is 6’3”

Hard for me to hate one of the best Maryland players ever, lol
cmillzz said on 8/Jun/19
@Viper
I respect your estimate on Merriman, but it’s possible that when you saw him, he wasn’t standing with the best posture. Either that, or perhaps you had a slight edge on him in footwear. 6’1.5” would be a bit of a shock to me if he only measured that tall. I do agree however that 6’3+ is probably just fantasy.
cmillzz said on 8/Jun/19
Have to keep in mind that Merriman’s posture isn’t always the best, so he may appear shorter than he actually is in pictures and videos. I doubt 6’3, but a bit over 6’2 is definitely possible, and maximum I can buy is 6’2.5”

But I can also believe just a flat 6’2 as well.
cmillzz said on 8/Jun/19
I’m not 100% sure about the height difference between Merriman and Bennett in that video. Minimum would be 3” maximum would be 4” so I’ll go with 3.5”

That would put Merriman at most 6’2.5” and very well could be closer to 6’2.25”
Canson said on 8/Jun/19
@Viper: Junior is a very respectful and respectable poster which surprises me that he would say that someone not liking someone would cause them to say they’re not as tall as listed or as they are
Johan 185 cm said on 7/Jun/19
That clip with Will Ferrell should bury anything under flat 6'3", unless Will is standing in a hole ofc.
Canson said on 7/Jun/19
@Junior: but How can we say that Viper hates Merriman all because he estimates him less than Rob? That doesn’t have anything to do with it. Viper claims to have met him and that’s what he saw him as in person. To be fair to Viper, the video with Martellus Bennett clearly shows around 4” with him and Bennett measured 6’5.75 at his pro day (6’6 1/8 at the combine). That is not less than a 3” difference if camera angle is a factor. It’s more than 3” it’s closer to 4”.

viper said on 6/Jun/19
Both Merriman and Larry are weak 6-2 guys for all intents and purposes.

6-3.25 for him is pure nonsense.

If he was that he would have looked a hell of a lot taller up close. He would have looked as tall as 6-3.25 Bruce Smith which he certainly didn't.

I've seen the man up close and you havnt
viper said on 6/Jun/19
Merriman measuring 6-4 at the doctor means nothing. NBA players measure 2 inches taller than their barefoot height all the time. Sometimes over 2 inches.

And Larry English is a 6-1.5 guy.
The 6-2.1 was very early in the morning and 6-2.1 measured combine-pro day guys often measure 6-1.5 at the senior bowl.

6-2 Merriman just barely edges him out
viper said on 6/Jun/19
This video exposes the 6-3 myth laughably. Click Here
viper said on 6/Jun/19
Best evidence we have by far is Merriman barefoot looking 6-1.5-6-2. He measured 6-2.

It proves how accurate I am seeing him up close looking 6-1.5-6-2
viper said on 6/Jun/19
Junior I like Merriman since he played for my college team.

I'm realistic about his height though.

He measured 6-2 at his pro day and looked 6-1.5-6-2 with good posture up close. I'm taller than him at 6-3.

So the 6-3 for him is very, very fake news
Canson said on 5/Jun/19
@Viper: yea when he slouches like he is there. He’s obviously not that short tho and he may have had a slight slouch when you met him.

Merriman looks 6-0 with 5-8 Soulja Boy.

Click Here Picture is tilt down couples of inches from Merriman side to make you think he look 6'0.

Click Here its not weird at all. 6'2.5" Will Ferrell is truely look at least 2cm shorter.

Click Here Manny Pacquiao is 5'5.5" (166.4) worst a bit weak of 166cm and Merriman look 9" taller with his head tilt down for Manny in picture. You have ridiculously counting Manny hair up his mid mouth level and say he look 6'1. Manny hair is not thin at all and it's at least full inch high up still look 8" shorter.

Click Here 5'11 Fabolous had a few inches advantages closer to the camera, please look carefully at the size and angle of Fabolous head and obviously Merriman standing further behind.

Click Here I have no idea who is the tall guy but he is max big 3" taller from eye to eye level and much closer to camera than Merriman and you can imagine swap position standing that would make Merriman would be looking an inch shorter. Truth is the tall guy probably had 2-2.5" max dead on.

Click Here 5'10.4 Johnson is much closer facing front to camera that could add up several inch taller illusion making him 6'0.

Click Here Look carefully that is 4cm top from both their head differences. Larry English is 6'2 and tilt up his head making eye level higher still look 4cm shorter.


No obligation to you but i don't feel that the reason hating a person and have to downgrade him a few inches lower. I know Shawne Merriman is not a lovable guy but there isn't chances he is under 6'3.25" if he get a 6'4 3/8 height from stadiometer and that obviously came out with footwear in it. Remember someone posted a better comparison picture of 6'2.25" The rock had a 2" shorter than him. That picture tells almost all the 6'2 myth.

Canson do you agree he looks 6-0 physically here. Click Here
Canson said on 2/Jun/19
@Viper: wouldn’t surprise me if Winston ended up closer to 6’3” than 6’4” at a low. He was only 6’3.75 at the combine prob an hour after waking. 6’3 3/8 is the most I see but that qualifies him as 6’3 1/2
Canson said on 2/Jun/19
@Viper: on Davis’s FB page
Canson said on 30/May/19
@Viper: I do agree that a full 6’3” is not likely for Merriman. However I feel that him being listed 6’3” on this site is a much better start. He’s obviously not 6’3.5. But I disagree however on 6’2” not being possible. A full 6’2” is possible for him and even maybe a hair over next to Bennett. That could be 3.5” between them but I doubt less than that and anywhere from 3.5-4” is possible for the difference

@Viper: the funny part is you’re going to hear about it with this pic when all of the other ones with the two of them aren’t that good especially with Davis having a clear posture issue in one of them. I will say that we can’t see footwear etc but at the same time seeing Davis next to Ladanian Tomlinson versus Merriman next to him it’s clear that Davis is taller. That is just further supported by the video with Bennett and Merriman

I can see Merriman being this listing max, anything 6'3"-6'3.5" when standing well. Thnx to viper for the keanu reeves and chris pratt pics. He looks 3" on a solid 6' guy and 2" on a very strong 6'1" guy.

I just can't see 6'2" max he looks taller than Dwayne Johnson does next to Austin and Pratt. A weak 6'3" at the very minimum.

Even If that measurement is legit in the morning, it doesn't mean anything when some footwear gives close to 2 inches that Merriman wears quite a bit.

Well, Johan, if Austin got measured 6'1.5 in shoes, it would make perfect sense that Shawne got measured 6'4.5 in shoes as well, yeah (at least based on that photo)...
As for that clip with Bennett, I agree that it's hard to imagine Shawne much over 6'3 there, BUT then again, the camera position clearly favors Bennett, which makes it pretty much inconclusive, to say the least.

Thats actually a decent pic, if he was a bit straighter he would have 3" on Keanu. He actually looks similar to how Steve Austin looked with him.

I think Keanu is listed 6'0.5" but maybe lost a small fraction? Hard to say but not under 6' anyway.

People who only see 3 inches in that video can't judge height well or have an agenda, IMO.

Risingforce who is as transparent as it gets sees a solid 4 inches between the 2.

Merriman being 6-3 is impossible.

1. I've seen him up close look 6-1.5-6-2 Max.

2. Measured 6-2 at his pro day.

3. A solid 4 inches shorter than 6-5.75 Martellus Bennett barefoot.

He may just be a weak 6-2 and not even a solid one
Johan 185 cm said on 19/May/19
@Andrea

Yes Steve Austin has been guessed by Vegas, Alex among others as being 6 ft in person but Rob has him listed at 6'1 1/4 because he came out with a 6'1.1/2 measurement claim.

I think its more likely it was with shoes as he doesn't look that tall and that would mean that Shawne is 6'4.1/2.

Logically Steve would be between 6'-6'0.5" and Shawne 6'3-6'3.5" imo. Maybe he is a guy who hits 6'3.25" with good posture but I just don't see him higher he did look 3 inches shorter than that 6'6" guy.

Canson said on 17/May/19
@Viper: Merriman is not taller than Davis. In one of the pics posted on this page Davis isn’t standing straight which is why he appears taller. Davis is around 6’3”. But I agree with Johan that 6’3 is a good listing but only because of where Rob started him. He’s nowhere near 6’4” and that video all but rules out 6’3 imho
viper said on 16/May/19
The Vernon pic where he's standing 500 miles away is so funny.

Merriman doesn't even look 6-3 there, and yet he's taller than 6-3?
Canson said on 16/May/19
I guess we can make fun of Viper all we want but at least his video that he posted is more credible than some of the garbage pics that others post. In that video Merriman is clearly at least 3” shorter than Bennett and it honestly looks more

Andrea said on 15/May/19
Johan, the thing about his nurse measurement is that that pretty much matches up with what he supposedly measured at the draft (6'4 3/8). I agree that it's quite possible he was in shoes there, but surely he couldn't have been at the draft? Hmm...
Anyway, regardless of all that, I'm still not sure he's just as low as 6'3. Bear in mind this how he looks with (just to name a few):

- 6'3 4/8 measured Nick Hardwick: Click Here
- 6'3 1/8 measured Shaun Philips: Click Here
As for Steve Austin, I don't really know him (except by name), so I can't tell how tall he could be (although if viper says he's 5'11, then I guess he's got to be at least 6-6'1 😊), but yeah, he does look about 3 inches shorter than Shawne in this pic: Click Here

@Viper: being that was a combine measurement for Bruce it’s possible he’s a little less but he’s also possibly lost height. A peak 6’3” I could see for him even if it’s 6’3” flat. May also be posture since he’s older
Johan 185 cm said on 9/May/19
@Andrea

I hadn't looked too much at this guy but it does seem that a 6'3" listing is far more likely than both 6'2.5" or 6'3.5". Unless ofc he is keeping some extra height back but next to Steve Austin for instance on his Instagram he had very good posture. It all depends how tall Steve really is today. My money is on 6'0.5" as he came out with a 6'1.5" claim lately ( in shoes we can assume like this guy). You could argue this listing based on that but maybe Steve is closer to 6' in reality and rounded.

It did look 3 inches difference

Canson said on 6/May/19
@Rob: the NFL isn’t going to get back to you about that lol. As for his height, seeing the video with Martellus Bennett and how Merriman is only up to his eyebrows there is no possible way that he was a barefoot 6’4 3/8 at any time in the day if Bennett measured 6’5.75 and 6’6 1/8”. Even if what you and Johan said is true about camera advantage it’s still more than just a 2.25 or 2.5” difference between the two. Maybe it’s 3” but Assuming Bennett is listed on this site (if you were to add him) at 6’6 1/8 since that’s his combine listing, Merriman really shouldn’t be listed above 6’3 even though his Pro Day was 6’2 3/8”. I certainly agree with Johan saying he doesn’t look his claim. And I do think that the solid 6’3” is a better listing than 6’3.5”
Editor Rob
Yeah, the records are probably sealed or conveniently unavailable.

But always remember some guys have height in their locker. They can look one height, but busting a gut surprise you.
Canson said on 6/May/19
There are actually some athletes who measure 2cm taller. An example is Lamont Jordan from Maryland who was 5’10.25 at the combine and 5’9.5 the other time he measured at his Pro Day. But in the end everything here is opinion based

Exactly, Johan! Just imagine how this site would end up in certain people's hands... 😀
As for Shawne, I suggest you to take a look at what I posted in the past... 😉
Btw, Rob, I didn't know you had lowered him to 6'3.5... Does that mean that you think that there are some athletes who actually can manage to measure at least 2 cms above their "normal low" or that he actually was mismeasured? 🙂
Editor Rob
The NFL didn't get back to me when I enquired about Shawne. I think there are some situations in which a player may get an erroneous listing.
Canson said on 5/May/19
@Viper: Allen has a bit of advantage in the pic. I think current Marcus Allen would be a bit shorter than Merriman but not by a lot. Prob an inch or less. I have Allen as 6’1” range today 6’1-6’1.5
Canson said on 5/May/19
@Christian: the most I could buy for Merriman is 6’2.5 but even that’s a stretch given he measured 6’2 3/8 at the Pro Day. His Pro Day measurement is beginning to look like it was his actual measurement (not the combine measurement) and seemingly is close to a low for him as he looks around 6’2.25 in that pic if we go with 3.5 or what Viper saw him at in person is how he would look if that’s 4”. I just don’t see 6’1.5-6’2” but to be fair Viper has been right a lot more often than people give him credit for and he does not look as tall as Vernon Davis does in pics. Davis while looking 6’3” in person I wouldn’t say is less than prob 6’2 7/8 but quite possibly could still be the full 6’3”. One thing to remember about Merriman is that he was initially slated to be a DE not a linebacker. So like Viper said gentleman’s agreement is a possibility as 6’2” or 6’2 1/2” is borderline undersized whereas close to 6’4 1/2 is very good size and 6’4” still very good size for a DE. I also don’t rule that out as I don’t believe Drew Brees’s measurement nor do I believe Kyler Murray’s
viper said on 4/May/19
Johan he was measured 6-2 at his pro day. That was accurate

Canson said on 4/May/19
@Johan185: he did measure 6’2 3/8 before at his Pro Day and 6’2 range another time and was listed 6’3” in college. He wasn’t listed 6’4 until the Pros when he was expected to be a defensive end before ending up as a linebacker. Looking back he didn’t look any bigger on the field than some of the other 6’2 range linebackers. But That actually lines up with the video as Bennett measured 6’6 1/8 and 6’5 3/4. No telling if Merriman’s were more in line with Bennett’s earlier measurement which could easily make him something like 6’2” flat at a low. I also measure 3/8” above my normal afternoon low if I do it an hour out of bed and 3/8” below my out of bed height. I lose around .75 up to 2cm in a day. If anything I would say that 6’4 3/8 is the measurement that I would challenge. As for Rock, I wouldn’t put it completely out of the question for Merriman to be closer to 6’3” but he looked the same size as 6’2 Rock

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/May/19
@Johan
3" is just a bit too low. Merriman only reaches to Bennett's eyebrows like Canson said. The average eyebrow level is around 3.5", and obviously a guy like Bennett's is longer since he has a bigger head than average. That's 3.5" at the absolute minimum.

-----------

Like I said that clip is difficult because of camera position and distance from the camera. During the bagwork it looked alot less but its not really a good piece of evidence as at no point are they both totally straight next to one another. Logically speaking that would mean that Merriman is 6'2" max and so no measurement to this date was accurate. What is more likely? That the measurements were all wrong and other evidence as well or that this one clip was correct?

I have seen this guy look clear 3 inches over Steve Austin ( Stone cold) and an easy inch on Dwayne Johnson. It just doesn't seem possible that he could be just 6'2".

@Viper: I don’t want to call the nurse a liar but it’s possible it was staged. Remember he “supposedly measured 6’4 3/8” at the combine so he may have had her say 6’4 1/2” since he basically was that. But he could be wearing some very thick footwear as well
Canson said on 29/Apr/19
@Johan: you should watch the video that Viper posted with Martellus Bennett. Bennett measured 6’6 1/8 at the combine and 6’5.75 another time so the latter is his height for comparison purposes. He has close to 4” on Merriman

Merriman's posture in the first pic isn't that much worse than in the second. Maybe only slightly but not that big of a difference.

He can look all over the place depending on pics. I've seen a couple or so where he looked as tall as 6'5" range, and at times as short as 6'1".

You guys should admit that there are situations where he looks only 6'2 , others near 6'4
With Tebow he looks pretty close the listing
Based on how he stood with a barefoot Armie Hammer , I pegg him at 6'3.25
Canson said on 13/Apr/19
@Viper: you have players in the NBA that are probably 6’5” and change at a low around Christian’s size that are listed at 6’8” such as Jimmy Butler. I can’t see him any taller if even As tall as Christian. He doesn’t even strike me as close to 6’6” but closer to 6’5”. Next to Derrick Rose and then Scottie Pippen was a good bit taller than him. So a 6’6+ in shoes is listed 6’8”. Then Tobias Harris is more like a solid 6’6” and he’s listed 6’9”. 6’6.5 morning height which may or may not have been rounded up. So a 6’7”+ with shoes maybe even barely over 6’7” is listed 6’9”. And he may even dip under the 6’6” mark barefoot by a hair at least it’s possible, but to me he looks a legit 6’6”. So a 6’2” flat guy being listed 6’4 or measuring close to 6’4” in shoes earlier in the day isn’t surprising at all I agree. They may be more like 6’3.5-.75 with shoes morning and only be 6’3-6’3.25 in sneaks in the evening and a solid 6’2”. I think an athlete should be listed barefoot. It’s not like they’re fooling anyone as coaches and others know at least have a general idea of how tall they actually are barefoot even if it were a morning height

You actually agreed with Big G when he said Dwayne was 6'1" in person but I'm sure you forgot all about that.

So yes before you thought 6'1" range but apparently now you think 6'1" Jackson is taller ? or not? WHo knows with you at least you're entertaining.

This guy was measured 6'4" in footwear and is most likely 6'3" as he is taller than Dwayne.

@Johan185: All Viper did was show disparity in the pictures. In his defense, he has provided some reasonable estimates here as well
Canson said on 1/Apr/19
@Christian: I probably didn’t clarify enough too. I was saying that with less evidence in Merriman’s case. Not so much less but because of the ambiguity. Trust me, I agree with you and Viper 100% as I always have. Merriman could appear shorter than his listing for sure and taller in some pics but the video is the best piece of evidence. And I’m of the belief that he’s 6’2” range like most here. What I was trying to say was that Rob doesn’t have as much evidence (at least he thinks that he doesn’t have it) with Merriman whereas Trump he does. But I do agree with what you said and it’s not likely he would get sued at all with either guy. In fact Merriman was listing of 6’2” and 6’2 3/8 I think listing him 6’2” range would be perfectly suitable. I stopped fighting it on this page as it’s likely not going to go down much more. 6’3.5 is still way too much for him next to Martellus Bennett. That’s more than 2.25” or even 2 5/8” going off a morning height. That’s minimum 3” and really is over 3”. That’s clear as day that it’s not less than 3”. Since we’ve seen a measurement for Merriman in the 6’2” range and one for Bennett at 6’5.75, I think 6’3” flat would’ve been a lot better than 6’3.5 that he’s listed. While I believe 6’3” is still too much it’s not nearly as bad as 6’3.5 or 6’4” which we can safely rule out
Johan 185 cm said on 1/Apr/19

Rock is not under 6'2" but lets be straight I remember you Viper as a serial downgrader here years ago. So lets just say your opinion is worth nothing to me.

The chances of Merriman suing because you have him at 6-2.5 are zero.
Editor Rob

Here's a tidbit from an article online:

"I once wrote an article about Schwarzenegger in which the editor at The Atlantic, a real stickler for defamation-proof published facts, forced me to use his listed height of 6-foot-2. I still get hate mail about that one from people who think I’m disseminating misinformation, and the comments section is nuts. It’s all dudes railing on me for daring to use the official heights and weights of bodybuilders, even though I was forced by the editor to do so."

@Canson
There are countless examples of celebrities who lied about their height and Rob listed them way shorter than their claims. Look at the Rock for example. He claims 6'5" but Rob lists him at 6'2.5" and it isn't a problem at all. No liability, no anything. Even Trump, who claimed 6'3" and was officially "measured" at 6'3" by his doctor, but Rob lists him at 6'0.5", yet Rob isn't in trouble. If Rob can get away with doing that to the president of one of the most powerful countries in the world, then certainly Rob can get away with doing the same thing to a retired football player like Merriman.

Canson are you saying Rob would get sued?
Canson said on 27/Mar/19
@Cmillz: only thing is we can’t see footwear with he and Barkley very well. I do have Barkley 194ish today peak 194-195 and Merriman looks worst case 188 most of the time with exception of when Viper met him and guessed 187ish and in the video with Martellus Bennett he also looks 6’1.75. Bennett measured 6’6 1/8 at the combine then 6’5.75 at a different time (Viper posted that measurement)

He was measured at 6-2 so he's not even that high
Sakz said on 27/Mar/19
@Canson Yeah exactly. I understand the reasoning and there are different measurements being recorded for Merriman after all, whether he looks the listing or not.
cmillzz said on 26/Mar/19
I don’t know about 6’1.5”, but I don’t really think he’s any taller than 6’2.5”...
cmillzz said on 26/Mar/19
@Viper
He looks 6’2.5” range there with Barkley.
Canson said on 26/Mar/19
@Viper: well said! Other measurements such as Julian Peterson which you mentioned are discrepancy. Peterson shows 6’5.1 and was listed 6’3” when he played. So if he really was 6’3.1 which is likely, he definitely would be something like 6’2.75 (your height)
Canson said on 26/Mar/19
@Sakz: I think what Rob is doing is protecting himself from liability. Since he is not sure exactly how tall he is, he’s simply going with a safe estimate. And Merriman is a guy who has gone as far as to say that he’s 6’5” before on more than one occasion such as posting the video and even his quote.
viper said on 25/Mar/19
He was documented at 6ft 4 3/8ths too.

If we are saying that is a 2 inch error, then maybe other listings have potential for error

And he looks nowhere close to it. That's the rub.

There is absolutely no way this guys over 6’2.5” in my opinion. He’s like The Rock.... trying to say he’s 6’5” absolute nonsense. I could be wrong but I just don’t see him more than 6’2.5”


You're not far off. He looked 6-1.5-6-2 in person with perfect posture
Sakz said on 25/Mar/19
@viper Rob wouldn't gain anything by wanting to make him taller. At the end of the day it is his site so he wouldn't blatantly inflate people. I mean he even states small fractions like a 1/4 on this site so that should tell you something. Pictures don't always do justice with height and even supposed measurements can have errors.
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
@Rob: I think listing him at the flat 6’3” would’ve been better. It’s still too high but at least it’s closer to his actual height and is something that could be down voted or up voted to hit both extremes. I mean it’s hard to still believe any chance of 6’3.5 when he measured 6’2 3/8 and looked that much shorter than a 6’5.75 guy on video standing as close to him as he was
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
@Viper: I don’t think Rob is grasping at straws but for some reason, he doesn’t believe Merriman is as low as he looks. Now it could be the result of Merriman not admitting to it and the fact that he has a higher measurement on the books. But I do agree with you that Merriman isn’t as tall as he is listed here and I really do think that if Rob were to be as accurate as possible with the listing that Merriman needs the downgrade

@Rob: in regards to the picture with bennett, that was as close to the perfect gauge of height as you get. They were standing right in front of one another and Merriman had a hard time reaching eyebrows. And they were standing in similar stances like Viper also mentioned
Editor Rob
Merriman is quite interesting because of the inconsistencies in what has been published for his height. He doubled down on the premise he is 6ft 4 range with that video.

Is he a height frauder? Did the NFL give him 2 extra inches on purpose? If that were the case, then it means the NFL's reputation for reporting actual measured heights from the combine is called into question.
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
@Viper: that’s also assuming Barkley is still that height today. That’s nothing close to only 1” between them
viper said on 25/Mar/19
Nowhere even close to 6-3.5 with Barkley.

@viper
I don't believe that Rob purposefully tries to make Shawne taller, but he's probably still not convinced that he's 6'2"-6'3" range. I wouldn't force Rob to downgrade Shawne if he really doesn't want to. That still doesn't change the fact that the 6'3.5" listing is inaccurate.
Canson said on 24/Mar/19
@Viper: no disrespect but that was a bit disrespectful toward Rob. I have a ton of respect for you as a poster, as well but that was unnecessary, V. At least Rob has, to his credit, offered an explanation each time as to why he believes Merriman is the height that he thinks he is in the pictures. He also has been very professional and respectful toward you when he’s interacted with you in the past, even giving you the benefit of the doubt in other instances. Sure I don’t agree with him on the topic of Merriman’s height, either, but I respect his views. I agree with you on Merriman’s height but I wouldn’t go and say that Rob has an agenda or that he’s making excuses because that is simply speculation and is not fair to Rob as he is actually the most objective person here on this site. He’s never exhibited any behavior to suggest otherwise. Nothing suggests that he has a hidden agenda. He has a delicate balance as he has to consider the potential risks of liability and protecting the site and posters, as well as trying to be as accurate as possible.

Rob, all he needs is a downgrade to
6-2.5 which would be closer to the truth.

And he wasn't even measured that tall.
viper said on 24/Mar/19
Rob, you're great, but you are grasping at straws here for whatever reason.

Canson what do you think
viper said on 24/Mar/19
If he's disadvantaged it's just barely that it's not even worth discussing.

Everyone else would agree he looks 6-2 max in both pics.
Editor Rob
You can compare his head size Click Here.

I would have guessed Omar had more than a 1/4 inch advantage from seeing the photo on alamy.
viper said on 24/Mar/19
I've never seen Rob cover for a guy like this where it was documented he was measured 6-2 and looks 6-2
Editor Rob
He was documented at 6ft 4 3/8ths too.

If we are saying that is a 2 inch error, then maybe other listings have potential for error too.
viper said on 24/Mar/19
What do you think of Rob's excuses with those pics which are laughable.

Almost like he has an agenda to make Shawne taller.

Like I said, he was measured at 6-2, looks 6-2, yet is listed at an insane 6-3.5. He wasn't listed that high in college!!!

When it was found out LT measured 6-2 he listed him as that. When it was found out Shannon Sharpe was measured at 6-1, instantly changed to 6-1.
Editor Rob
Well you posted a couple of photos with Shawne at a disadvantage, I'm simply offering an explanation.

In the same way I could say With Tim maybe even though they are same distance, Shawne might have road advantage and gaining a couple of inches over Tim.
Canson said on 23/Mar/19
@Rob: in the video with Martellus Bennett the two are right in front of one another. In that case, it’s still at absolute worst a 3” difference. Rising Viper Christian and I saw 3.5 or 4 whereas you saw 3” max but it honestly looks minimum 3” not max. I could buy 3” as a possibility though
Editor Rob
I can see how you would see anywhere in 3-4 inch range, though it's a shame they never stood side by side with same posture, that would have been interesting to see if it was as much as 3.5 inches.
Canson said on 23/Mar/19
@Viper: next to those two he actually looks the height you saw him 6’1.5-6’2”. Castillo is likely 6’2.25 or 6’2 3/8 and Merriman is about 1/2”-1” shorter. Then again could be the angle of the camera too but it’s clear that he’s at least 2” shorter than Jackson
viper said on 22/Mar/19
Just met George Rogers. He looked exactly like Merriman, 6-1.5-6-2
Canson said on 22/Mar/19
@Viper: maybe also 6’2.75 and 6’2. You said before you were 6’3.5 and 6’2.75 so if Merriman is an inch shorter than you 6’2.5 and 6’1.75 add up
viper said on 22/Mar/19
How is he anywhere close to 6-3.5 with 6-2.6 Luis Castillo and 6-4.3 senior bowl measured Vincent Jackson.

viper said on 21/Mar/19
Rob he's clearly over 3 inches shorter than both of those 6-5 guys.
