How tall is Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow's Height

6ft 2 ¼ (188.6 cm)

American football Quarterback for New York Jets. His combine measurement was 6ft 2.75, but my belief is that measurement was taken quite early in the day.

How tall do you think derrick henry is?
Editor Rob
Not really looked at him yet.
Samuel Oluwashemire said on 24/Feb/23
@Viper: This is true about von. I have seen von being listed as 6'2.25 or 6'2.5. According to the NFL, they measured at the same 6'2 5/8 inches at the combine.

How tall do you think derrick henry is? Do you also think that von is still 6'2.5? Thanks.

Legit 6’2 guy. Nothing over at a low.
Canson said on 22/Nov/22
@Viper: yea miller can look 6’2.25 with Peyton
viper said on 21/Nov/22
It's weird, but Von Miller is similar.

Miller measured 6-2 5/8 and 6-2 7/8 yet looks nothing more than 6-2

He possibly could have lost height. But I don’t think his peak height was anything over 6’2.25.
Space said on 18/Nov/22
The 6’2.75 combine listing for Tebow is hard to believe. I tend to think the nfl combine heights are slightly rigged. I don’t think Tebow was ever over 6’2” honestly, and I’m not trying to hate on him. I love the guy.

In the video with Goldberg, they are the same height, and it’s a fact that Goldberg is under 6’2” today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Oct/22
Under 6ft2 is a joke. I’m taking Rob’s verdict, he more than likely did get 6ft2¾ at the draft but at like 9 in the morning.
Emil said on 7/Oct/22
Maybe 6'2.75 earlier in the day in cleats. Looks 6'1 range
Canson said on 5/Oct/22
@Viper: was it 6’3 1/2 or 6’3 5/8?
Canson said on 2/May/22
@Viper: he measured 6’4 1/8 at the Combine so that proves that it’s early morning. And Smith looks taller than Merriman
viper said on 1/May/22
Alex Smith measured 6-3.5 at the senior bowl
viper said on 1/May/22
It makes no sense.

He's the shortest looking 6-2 guy I've ever seen and he measured OVER 6-2 5/8 3 times
Alex 6'0 said on 28/Apr/22
6'2.75 even an hr up i can't see him below 6'2.25
Vincent Caleb said on 19/Apr/22
Weak 6’2 guy, maybe even 6’1.5
IceCold said on 13/Apr/22
With listed 6'0 3/4 Jon Hamm Click Here
IceCold said on 13/Apr/22
There's examples when Tebow looks below 6'2:

Next to measured 6'4 1/8 Alex Smith. Seems a legit 6'4 guy for glance Click Here

With Aaron Rodgers who you guess near 6'1 Click Here
Click Here

With listed 5'7 1/4 actress Katharine McPhee on the heels. Click Here This is not 12 cm difference considering dress shoes
IceCold said on 13/Apr/22
@Canson, Tebow looks sub 6'2 With Snoop.

take a look:

That's more than only just 4cm according to this site, considering Tim's hair.
Canson said on 3/Apr/22
@Viper: no I doubt they’re errors but they’re probably very early in the morning. I could almost by 6’3” and 6’2.25 afternoon. But I can also buy 6’2 7/8” and 6’2 1/8 afternoon. That’s unless he loses the full inch which many at that height don’t
IceCold said on 1/Apr/22
He doesn't look it, and you notice he looks 6'1 in the comment below
viper said on 31/Mar/22
He measured 6-2.6-6-2.7 3 different times.

I wouldn't think they would be all errors
IceCold said on 31/Mar/22
These ''measurements'' must be an error
IceCold said on 31/Mar/22
Looks under 6'2 by a lot
Canson said on 27/Dec/21
@Jawilder: agreed
Jawilder said on 27/Dec/21
Probably a 6’2 flat guy. Can’t see him as anything more than that.
Shane said on 5/Dec/21
Sock Lifts or something. Not sure what but I dont see him measuring near 6'3" out of bed or anytime.
Vincent Caleb said on 15/Oct/21
The current listing is generous. He typically looks below 6’2”. I have no idea where that 6’2 3/4” measurement came from. Maybe some sort of sock lifts?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Oct/21
I agree with Rob that the 6ft2¾ was likely taken some time in the morning...wouldn't be right to list him at that but 6ft2 flat might be undercutting him as well. I reckon he can at least stay just above that at his low
Vincent Caleb said on 5/Oct/21
Tebow looks 6’1” range to me if I am being honest. I’ll give him 6’1 3/4 as a guess but I am struggling to see it higher tbh.
Alex 6'0 said on 5/Sep/21
Canson maybe over measured a little? Here's with John cena who's listed 6'0.5 but most likely 6'0 flat. Can't see the ground though. Is that even 2 inches?

Click Here
Canson said on 23/Aug/21
@Alex: I wonder if the measurement was off? Some guys are. There was one player that Viper posted a measurement for that was allegedly 6’5.1 and was listed 6’3”. Then other guys I’ve seen measured 6’4” and listed 6’3. Then you have the Aaron Hernandez’s of the world measured 6’2 range and listed 6’1”
Alex 6'0 said on 21/Aug/21
If measured 6'2.75 i cant see him as low as 6'2 flat.
Canson said on 30/Jun/21
@Viper: I don’t get it. The Senior Bowl used to be much more reliable in terms of determining an afternoon height. Now Senior Bowl measurements are early morning. That is a normal afternoon height for Cousins as he’s 6’2 5/8” at the combine. That aligns perfectly as he would’ve been 6’3 out of bed 6’2 5/8 an hour or two hours out of bed and 6’2.25 in the afternoon/evening provided no extreme low driven activity. Cousins could measure 6’2.75 after 1 hour or 6’2 5/8”. So now we know that Combines are typically around that timeframe
viper said on 29/Jun/21
Kirk Cousins measured 6-2.2 at the senior bowl
viper said on 29/Jun/21
He consistently looks waaayyy shorter

He only looks 6-1 with 5-11 Tim Brown

Jld010 said on 27/May/21
If he measured 190cm at the combine..then that is his height..this morning afternoon argument is bordering absurd. I think you guys have a problem. You lose height thoughout the day.
Canson said on 7/Mar/21
RJT said on 9/Feb/21
@Editor Rob @Canson

How tall is Kirk Cousins? He's listed at 6'3 but actually was measured 6'2 5/8" at the combine!

If that was a morning measurement, then maybe 6'2.25", as is Tebow's case.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't give him more than 6ft 2.5 then

@RJT and Editor Rob: I have Cousins at 6’2.25”. He is also on record as having measured that elsewhere. His 6’2 5/8 is early morning and 6’2 1/2 at the senior bowl.
Vincent Caleb said on 11/Feb/21
But he is confirmed shorter than Shawne Merriman, who I have around 6’2”-6’2.5”, maybe 6’2.75” but that is generous. He honestly is no more than 6’1.5” to me. I think he sock stuffed for the measurement early morning, which can give an additional half inch. 6’2.75” could be a round up from 6’2.5” also.

I guess he was measured at 189.5cm or so and then they rounded it up to 6'2.75".
winkler91 said on 5/Feb/21
Very strange. If he was measured 6'2.75 at the combine measurement how can he be 188.6 in the afternoon?

I mean 6'2.25 afternoon guys wake up at 6'3 or sometimes a hair under.

For example I do wake up 6'3 (8h+sleep) and 6'2.25 is my afternoon low.

I would measure 6'2.75 (189.9) literally 15-20 min after waking up or so.

Maybe the 6'2.75 was also a round up for Tebow.
Canson said on 31/Jan/21
@Vincent: I would go with 6’2
Vincent Caleb said on 8/Jan/21
Tebow’s height is all over the place. Can look 6’2.5” at times, then he can look 6’1”.
Canson said on 14/Dec/20
@Jordan87: if he measured that 1 hour out of (I agree with Vincent that he probably wouldn’t quite), he would be 6’2.25 or 6’2 3/8 but not 6’2.5 for the majority of the day. Maybe 6’2 3/8 would be his lunchtime and 6’2.25 afternoon. The majority of the day (saying 16 hours), the afternoon would be the majority
Vincent Caleb said on 11/Dec/20
Jordan87 said on 10/Dec/20
If 6'2.75" was his morning height, he should get the 6'2.5". Many other over listed guys on this site, Tebow is taller than 6'2.25" for most of the day.

You’ve got to be kidding me.

These aren’t the best comparisons, but just to give a little insight as to why Tebow is nowhere near his measurement:

There he is with nick saban, now let’s look at Obama with saban

Factoring posture in he should be 6’1.5” there.
Canson said on 7/Dec/20
@Viper: and both guys were small for their positions. Remember the QB that played for West Virginia Wil Greer was measured 6’2 1/2 and was listed 6’4” and 6’3 in college and 6’1 in the pros
Canson said on 6/Dec/20
@Viper: very odd
viper said on 3/Dec/20
Was it a Florida Gator thing?

Tebow measured near 6-3 3 different times.

Aaron Hernandez measured over 6-2 3 different times yet ended up being listed at 6-1
viper said on 3/Dec/20
Rob, Kyler Murray needs a page.

He's flat out not 5-10
Vincent Caleb said on 3/Dec/20
I was thinking 5’8” and change is likely. Not the full 5’9”, but a strong 5’8”. Haven’t seen too much height judging pics with him, but from the ones you just showed, he struggles for 5’8”. You may be right about there being at least 2 inches between Wilson and Murray.
Canson said on 30/Nov/20
@Vincent: I’m not certain on Murray but if 5’9 Marqueese Brown is taller (5’9 is likely not his low) I can’t see much over 5’8” flat
Vincent Caleb said on 27/Nov/20
Aaron Rodgers NFL listing is bad but not as bad as Tebow’s. Rodgers looks at most and inch under his 6’2” “measurement”, but Tebow struggles for 6’1”, and he can even look a flat 6’0” at times. I am going to say 6’1.5” for Tebow, and that is being generous. Idk how tall Kyler Murray is, but from what I have seen I don’t think he is quite as low as 5’8” flat.
Canson said on 22/Nov/20
@Viper: at most
viper said on 21/Nov/20
Murray doesn't look taller than 5-9 on the field
Canson said on 19/Nov/20
@Vincent: lol he won’t be the first. I wonder if he got listed taller because they thought he was too small. Aaron Rodgers is another one. He’s 6’1” listed 6’2”. Another is Kyler Murray. I wonder what he really is
Vincent Caleb said on 18/Nov/20
@Canson: I don’t think he is 6’2” flat even. He looks shorter. More like 6’1.5”.
Canson said on 17/Nov/20
@Fried Chicken: or he got the Kyler Murray/Shawne Merriman treatment. Lol 2 extra inches but I doubt he got 2”. Maybe an out of bed
FriedChicken said on 15/Nov/20
Either he loses more height than the average guy his height or there was some sneaky sock inserts involved.
Vincent Caleb said on 8/Nov/20
I am probably gonna get called a downgrader for this, but I think Tim Tebow is 6-1.5. The only thing holding me back from saying 6-1 flat is the measurement, which I guess is in shoes, or with sock lifts. Viper is right on this one.
Linke said on 21/Jun/20
How tall is his wife? She was listed 5'7" at Miss Universe pagent but looks much shorter.
Canson said on 27/Apr/20
He’s just shorter than listed even with good posture
Canson said on 27/Apr/20
He’s just shorter than listed
Unanimous said on 13/Feb/20
I think posture might be the main reason he seems a little shorter than that measurement.
Canson said on 5/Feb/20
@Viper: I’m not convinced anymore. He’s not as tall as most guys in that range. Look at Kyler Murray and Shawne Merriman same with other guys who have 6’2 range and are 6’1” like Hernandez and Will Grier
viper said on 4/Feb/20
If it was revealed that Tebow was actually 6-1 it wouldn't surprise me in the least, because he can look even shorter than that
viper said on 4/Feb/20
He's routinely shorter, sometimes much shorter than other 6-2 guys.

He's nowhere even close to 6-3. I'm still not totally convinced he measured it
Canson said on 4/Feb/20
@Leif: he would be walking around at 6’2” and claiming 6’3”. The site is based on lunch or afternoon not out of bed
Leif said on 1/Feb/20
If he's 6.2.75 out of bed why don't you round up,and give him 6.3 since a quarter of an inch is hardly anything right?
viper said on 16/Jan/20
6-3 3/8 senior bowl measured Marcus Spears just about towers him.

I wonder why?
Canson said on 21/Dec/19
6’2.75 wouldn’t be a few hours after waking. Combine measurements are typically an hour after waking tops. It’s possible for him that he laid down before being measured to get back to his out of bed as he doesn’t look more than a flat 6’2” meaning 6’2.75 out of bed
Canson said on 21/Dec/19
@Shane: a normal loss under normal activities for me is something like .75” to 2cm Max. 6’5 out of bed or a mm over and 6’4.25 afternoon height hence why I claim 6’4” although I do come down to 6’4” flat or a mm over at an extreme low. So perhaps a solid inch for an extreme low which doesn’t happen often
Shane Gray said on 10/Nov/19
@NFL Nerd most people over 6 foot lose more than a half inch from out of bed to night. Many shorter than 6 foot do more than a half inch, actually.
viper said on 23/Jul/19
Why does 6-3.3 senior bowl measured Marcus Spears seem to tower over him in every pic
Importer said on 15/Jul/19
6'3 in the morning, 6'2 3/4 a few hours after he woke up. So 6'2 1/2 is alright.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/May/19
viper believe Tebow was shortest looking 6'2. 6'2.25" i doubt it too. But he wasn't far from 6'2. I'll rule out 6'1.75".
Oliver said on 5/Mar/19
Rob,she was described as 5'7 during the competition. I feel like most of the contestants' heights are overstated by one inch or so. So,I guess she could be more 5'6 range. 5'5 would be a little bit low,I think.
Editor Rob
It seems unlikely she is that tall....5ft 6? Maybe a chance.
Oliver said on 2/Mar/19

Rob,how tall do you think his girlfriend(Miss Universe 2017) is?
Thank you.
Editor Rob
5ft 5-6 range maybe.
Canson said on 6/Nov/18
If the combine measurement itself is true, he would be where Rob has him listed 6’2.25. But at times he looks shorter I agree
Canson said on 15/Oct/18
@Animus: they have Mike Glennon measuring 6’7 1/8 and he’s listed at 6’6”. They also listed Aaron Hernandez 6’1 when he measured 6’2” range. Possible it was an error. But if it is actuate he is around this height at a low
Animus said on 2/Sep/18
He is not going to be shorter than 6’2 unless they made a measurement error. He can look shorter than this, especially with other athletes, but he looks a good 6’2 to me
heightchecker34 said on 26/Jul/18
I am still not seeing any pics, where I could reasonably say this guy is a legit 6'2, let alone a strong 6'2. Next to a LEGIT 6'2.5 Justin Hartley, he looks an inch shorter, and even with 187 cm Aaron Rodgers, they look the same height. He never measures up next to 6'2 guys. Please downgrade Rob, 189 cm is beyond ridiculous.
Canson said on 14/Jul/18
Senior Bowl must have been in the morning that year as well. He “supposedly” measured the same thing then as he did at the Combine

@Viper: two of my buddies have met Van Pelt. One has golfed with him at Laytonsville and Poolesville in MD. He’s definitely 6’6” as one of my friends is also 6’7” and he confirmed the same as you that he had Scott by 1” the other is 6’3 and was about 3” less. Both said he’s noticeably taller than I am

I know it looks like a bit of a slope but look how tall Tebow can look with 6-6 Scott Van Pelt. Click Here

I walked right by Van Pelt as he was walking towards me at a golf tournament and can confirm he's 6-6.

Tebow certantly looks taller than I ever did by him!
viper said on 7/Mar/18
His height is all over the place
Canson said on 19/Jan/18
I totally agree with this listing esp since combined are held in the AM around 6am. He doesn’t really look under this for sure not under 6’2”. But doesn’t look almost 6’3” either for sure
Canson said on 18/Jan/18
@RP: I think the only one that’s afternoon (at least was) was the Senior Bowl. The others both can look like Morning honestly. Even today the Senior Bowl appears earlier in the last year or two
RP said on 17/Jan/18
Peppers was 5'11-1/8" @ Pro Day & 5'11-3/8" @ The NFL combine. Combine, morning measurement...Pro Day, afternoon measurement.
Animus said on 8/Jan/18
He looked at most 6'1½ next to Kenny Smith, who claims 6'2, on Inside the NBA. Barkley looked way bigger and taller.
Triplescrew said on 5/Jan/18
He was on Inside the NBA last night and stood with the guys several times. Based on that, and assuming Charles Barkley is strong 6'4" range, I'd say Tebow looked maybe 6'1.5" ish. It was kinda like this:

Shaq: 7'1"
Ernie: 6'1"
Tebow: 6'1.5"
Kenny: 6'2"
Chuck: 6'4.5"
Canson said on 3/Nov/17
@NFL Nerd: that’s interesting. I’ve seen it both ways where the combine is higher than the pro day. I assumed pro day took place in the afternoon whereas combine is in the morning but the sock lifts that’s interesting
NFL nerd said on 26/Oct/17
@ Editor Rob

Yes I've caught draftscout getting the numbers wrong before.

What's interesting is Peppers measured 5'10 7/8 at the combine which is supposed to be barefoot.

In the pro day video you linked he is wearing thick socks. Perhaps that is why he measured 1/4 taller at 5'11 1/8. Interesting.
Editor Rob
time of day, posture and even sock lifts...I remember exposing a height Guru once who was daft enough to put his 'volunteer' in lifts inside her socks...
Editor Rob said on 18/Oct/17
I remember on here saying once how data might be mistaken with combines or Pro Days...with big data sets, errors can occur.

On DraftScout:

Peppers at 5113, which as we know is 5ft 11 and 3/8ths on the Pro Day.

Click Here

There's a video of this measurement and the measurer has called it out twice, you can see him walking away from the wall, 5111 or 5ft 11 and 1/8ths.

Click Here

Mistakes in storing data certainly happen.

Of course, it would never happen under my watch 😆
Canson said on 16/Jun/17
He never looks 6'2.75. If courss that'd be in the morning but he'd still look 189 flat at night (unless they got his hair too). Guess he has horrendous posture to where he hides it if that's the case because I agree with what you said Christian 6'2" flat 188cm doesn't look any taller than Favre and honestly at times favre could give me the taller impression

He never looked 6'3 as he was claimed. More 188 or 6'2"
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 30/Mar/17
Tebow can't be anything more than a flat 6ft2. I can't see him at 189cm, much less his official mesurement of 6ft2.75 However, he's taller than just 6'0.5" and 185cm.
berta said on 23/Mar/17
i get a 189 vibe from this guy
dginzu said on 10/Mar/17
Tebow always looks 3 inches shorter than 6'3.3 Marcus Spears looking at every picture of them.

If he were 6'2 why would that be.

I see he also looks 6'0 to 6'1 way too much to ever be 6'2. The combine and senior bowl measurement is bunk.

Hell, he only looks 6'0-6'1 physically In a baseball uniform no less.

Hes 6'0.5 at most.
Canson said on 9/Mar/17
@Trey: Tebow is at least 6'2" and he's taller than LL. LL wears lifts and also boots often. He's 5'11" range maybe 6'0 but no higher. Did you ever see his show In the House? He wasn't any taller than Kim wayans was. She often was in flats and him in boots was why he did. But when you had Kobe or Eddie Jones on the show both towered him and they're near 6'5" guys barefoot that's it. Same with Lennox Lewis. He towered him. Michae Warren who was the producer and had a few appearances was a former basketball player at UCLA in the 70s and edged him out. And he's about 6'1" probably

Cutler was measured at 6-2.7 at the senior bowl, so he isn't even a solid 6-3

Seems to be a total error in measurement.

He doesn't look taller than 6-1
Borats Chicken said on 18/Feb/17
Gonna disagree with you @Pal he was with NFLer Jay Culter who's 6'3.25 and had almost 1.5 to 1.75 on him
Pal said on 1/Feb/17
Usually agree with your estimates, Rob, but got to say you are off here. I met Tim at a gym during the National Championship week in Tampa. I am 6'2.25 and he was wearing normal nike sneakers just like me. Definitely have .5-.75 inches on me, built like a brick wall too. He was massive. 6'2.75 at the minimum to be honest, would've guessed a flat 6'3. Hell his combine he was 6'2.75 and those are barefoot.

For a little more proof look up Mark Sanchez Tim Tebow. Mark is a flat 6'2 guy and looks about .75 inches shorter than Tebow in any picture of them in pads and cleats (so we know their shoes are the same). Saw one of them in dress clothes about the same height but we don't know the shoe situation there and Tebow was a bit farther back from the camera.

Just my 2 cents.
Borats Chicken said on 29/Dec/16
Rob, they updated his combine and changed it to 6026, so i guess you were right.
Editor Rob
Borat, it's always been that mark, it just means 6ft 2.75
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 19/Dec/16
He's not 6'1" range, Mark Sanchez is a solid 6'2" and Tebow was at least the same if not slightly taller.
NFL nerd said on 4/Dec/16
I think the Rock and Tebow are the same height. 6'2 3/4 morning, 6'2 1/2 afternoon, 6'2 1/4 evening(if they still drop). Both have a thick build and relaxed posture which can make you appear shorter. Would love to see a pic of them stand side by side.

I just can't buy the NFL combine fudging his height from 6'1 3/4 to 6'2 3/4.
Mr. R said on 1/Dec/16
I will find the picture but when he was on the Patriots, he was at least 3 inches shorter than Tom Brady. 6-1.5 in the morning.

Rob how likely is 6ft2 flat?
Editor Rob
Rampage, I'd still tend to give him a bit over 6ft 2...he might be a guy who has more height in the locker and when you measure him he does a Bust a Gut.

Tim Tebow is a headscratcher. I hate downgrading people just for the fun of it, especially when there is no proof. But too me, he looked always like a 6'1.5"ish guy who got listed in the 188-189 cm range. But the more I have seen of him with 6'4-6'5ish as well as other fellow 6'2 quarterbacks, he does look right around the mark. He does maintain loose posture, and does tend to slouch a bit, so he might dip in the 186 cm range. I guess I will go with 6'2 flat with a small chance of dropping to strong 6'1 in the late evening, especially after he plays.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Oct/16
Rob, who do you think would measure taller Tebow or Favre?
Editor Rob
Tebow maybe
Canson said on 16/Jul/16
@Rampage: spot on! That's about the norm is 1/2" below what each is listed as on here
Andrea said on 23/Jun/16
If he really was measured at 6'2.75 2-3 hours out of bed, i doubt he'd dip that much under 6'2.5... Maybe they really took a "wrong" measurement!
RP said on 23/Jun/16
Good morning Rob...I assure you that there are no mistakes of meaurements giving at The NFL Combine....even with 300 participants. I have personal experience with the 5 day event...3 day event 20 years 5 days. All weigh ins, height measures, wingspans, hand measurements ...are taken by two individuals (physicains or physical therapist) and observed off to the side (2'-3'ft away) by 3 other individuals who confirm the measurements & weigh-in...All meaurements are read out loud (twice) & recorded by 32 different individuals (one representive for each franchise)...I do agree, Tim's & most of every players heights are taken in the early morning. Starting @ 9am...And never later than 11am. My group all got Out of bed @ 6am-6:30am, in order to eat the catered breakfast @ 7am. If your are saying Tim's morning height is 6'2.75" (peak) height & that his evening height is 6'2.25"..? Then, I totally agree 100% with you. Since all (men) in good Health shrink about 1/4" to 1/2" during the day in our 20's & 30's...maybe more as we age & reach our 50's & 60's...70's ?? I'm currently morning height is 5'11-1/8" & my late night height is 5'10-3/4" @ 217 (fit & muscular) pounds...with very good health. If we are going to give Tim a (median) height? should be 6'2.5" ??? But, no need to argue over 1/4" inch ...LOL! Have a great & Blessed day, Rob...great website..the discussions are very fun & eduacating @ times.
Editor Rob
if there is double checking involved then it will reduce errors dramatically, so maybe it is a true measurement...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jun/16
6ft2¾ at 9:00-10:00a.m. isn't hard to believe. By late afternoon would be down to 6ft2¼
RP said on 20/Jun/16
Rob, why not list him at his documented 6'2.75" official NFLCombine measurement? I can personally confirm that the NFL barefoot measurements are some of the most strict & accurate you'll ever find. And yes, all weigh-ins & measurements @ the NFL combine are performed between 9am to 11am. Regardless, why not use Tim's official medically documented listing?
Editor Rob
I don't think he looked quite as tall as the measurement. Maybe it was within an hour of waking and just under 2.75...maybe it was 2.25 and they made an error.

Sometimes you do get error's in large amounts of data.
Sixseven said on 13/Jun/16
I saw him 2009 in Jacksonville FL he is 189 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jan/16
[Editor Rob: 6ft 2 flat could be realistic, I think when you measure a large amount of people, the occasional slightly off measurement might slip through. A guy reads out say 6ft 2.75 when he meant to say 2.25 or something like that.]

That's pure assumption. I reckon he did come in at that mark but at like 9am. Strong 6ft2 range is fine for big Tim
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 30/Jan/16
Tony Romo is listed as 6'2" under his measurement though. However, he frequently looks shorter than 6'2" listed people as he always appears to be more 6'1" out on the field. He's clearly more than an inch shorter than 6'2 7/8" Terrell Owens as well.
Sam said on 20/Dec/15
Just to clarify my previous comment, Bryant and Rodgers were measured 6'1.5 at their pro days. So it is plausible that they both lost half an inch between their morning combine measurement and afternoon pro day measurements.
Sam said on 20/Dec/15
Right on Scott. Nfl combine is as good as it gets. It's not perfect though. If someone is measured for example 6'2 flat(6020) you should be suspicious that they rounded up per players request or perhaps with cleats on. For example apparently Dez Bryant and Aaron Rodgers are actually 6'1 1/2 but are both listed 6020 per nfl draft scout. Tony romo is also listed 6020 per nfl draft scout. Obviously he is not 6'2.
Scott said on 8/Dec/15
FYI- NFL combine measurements are done in eighth of an inch measurements. I.E. If you see one measured and the board says 6'2.2 thats 6'2 1/4 because the "point" part is how many eighths of an inch. To the one below claiming to be 6'1.75, if you think Tebow doesn't look 6'2, at least, in the pic you provided I suggest you have your eyes checked. People may not lke it but if you are measured a certain height at the NFL combine or a pro day, that's just what their hieght is whether you like it or not.

He fails to look over 6'2" there.
Lorne??? said on 4/Apr/15
Rob, could we get him at least 6'2 flat? Maybe 's about 6'3 out of bed and barely 6'2 at night.

I agree at the possibility of them listing his height incorrectly, but supposedly he measured this mark twice(I've never found proof of any second measurement though, it could just be a copy of his first time SUPPOSEDLY measuring 6ft2.75.

But in reality he can look maybe 187 at times. Maybe his popularity influenced a very loose measurement or possibly even a slight upgrade? He was absurdly popular, even now him simply working out for the Eagles makes headlines...
Editor Rob
6ft 2 flat could be realistic, I think when you measure a large amount of people, the occasional slightly off measurement might slip through. A guy reads out say 6ft 2.75 when he meant to say 2.25 or something like that.
Oanh said on 4/Apr/15
Saw him on the Golf Channel and he was a full 2" shorter than host and former PGA player Charlie Rymer. Charlie is listed at 6'4" and he has stated that he is in fact 6'4". Tim is no taller than 6'2" max.

It was taken earlier in the day but it wasn't near out of bed height. If he was measured 6'2.75 after 2-3 hours of waking then 6'2.5 may seem fairer for him.


Not sure about the NFL but I saw a video of Blake Griffin before the NBA draft and they measured right out of bed.

Editor Rob
sometimes there might be cases where a player's height is taken down wrong. Think about thousands of measurements over several years, there might be the odd mistake here and there.

Either that or he got up late and measured not that long out of bed.
Jon said on 22/Jul/14
I've met Tebow here while he used to play for Denver... he was right around 6 ft 1 and no taller.

Full body photo with Mark Sanchez, and Tim Tebow has just a slight footwear advantage as Sanchez is in footwear:

Click Here

He's shorter than 6'2" Mark Sanchez there as well.


A lot of these images next to Sanchez seem cherry picked. I've just looked through a lot of photos with the 2 of them together, Sanchez looks taller in some Tebow looks taller in others. If anything I'd say Tebow looks taller a little more often. They're similar in height, probably less than 1.5 cm difference or something but I'd guess Tebow fractionally taller.
Stretch said on 7/Feb/14
Timmy did a Good Morning America cooking segment before this year's Super Bowl with former QB Joe Montana. Joe at 6' 2" was as tall or taller than Tebow. Moreover GMA host Josh Elliot at 6' 3" was clearly an inch-and-a-half taller; very obvious.
MD said on 5/Feb/14
Drew Brees is not a single centimeter over his 6'0" listing, and he's only ever claimed six feet. His height has been one of the things made the most fuss about since he's been in the NFL.

Tim is a strange one to peg down, but he's consistently looked nothing over 6'2", even though he was measured taller. As we've gone through in the thread, it has to be a morning measurement. And, who ever truly knows, it could have been in shoes. I wouldn't assume that it was, because that would be highly unusual for NFL combines, but it's strange when you see him barely scrapping 6'2".
Blaze said on 31/Jan/14
Um, the real height is out of bed so he's 6'3..
MD said on 9/Nov/13
It may just be the angle, Seahawk. That said, I said it before, but when he was on Jimmy Fallon's late night show, last year, he literally didn't look anything more than two inches taller. It was odd. Maybe, Jimmy was in lifts, but he's routinely not looked more than a flat 6'2" to me.
Lorne said on 2/May/13
Wow so it's not just me? I saw first time, said no way is a legit 6'3, and with the jets he looks nearer 6ft2. Note that he's barely taller than mark Sanchez. Honestly, they look identical on the field, but Tebow would measure a bit taller. Point is, I have always thought nearer 6'2 than 3, but didn't think he was listed. Once again, Rob see's past the BS and gives an accurate listing. 190cm is obviously a morning measurement; he's 189cm afternoon, and may even dip a bit below that mark. 6ft2.25in is perfect, at the absolute most he might scrape 189cm with perfect posture. Weird though, NFL measurements are usually VERY accurate, unlike the NBA which inflates some heights by 2 inches!
Mr. R said on 6/Mar/13
There was an article which talked about him being 4 inches taller than his big brother Pete who is 5-10.
Mr. R said on 6/Mar/13
When TT was on Jimmy Fallon, he was not that much taller. Tim is just below 6-2.

Rob What's wrong with a morning measurement, if it's your heals to your head it's legit. I go by my morning height of 6'3.25"
Editor Rob
you are perfectly entitled to claim any height you want.

in general, the majority of people won't get measured in the morning, so on average by the time measurements are done, they are nearer their low than the early morning.
Brad said on 19/Jan/13
As listed is okay, had him by around 4. Elway had him marked as gone 4 games in 2011. Jacksonville 2013.
Tony said on 8/Jan/13
@MD They were not pro day measurements they were were Senior Bowl measurements, where all the college seniors are measured. Ive seen differences up to a half inch but out of the ones I looked up I'd say about 40% differed from the Combine measurements-Just to give you a few names-Tony Bergstrom,Kirk Cousins, Audie Cole,Tj Graham, Cam Johnson. Actually differences of 1/8-1/4 are not uncommon at all, but the majority are correct within .25 of an inch. However I still believe Tebow is 6'2.5" at least
mike 181cm said on 7/Jan/13
At the combine he measured 6"2.75
Tony said on 4/Jan/13
I actually did some research and If you look at the senior bowl measuremnts vs combine measuremnts there can be differences. For example Brandon Weeden was measured at 6'3.5 at the senior bowl, but measured 6'3.75 at the combine. Now he was 28 years old when these measurements were taken so he did not grow. Just shows that these measuremnts are not 100% accurate.

Another example Joe Adams measured 5'10.5 at the Senior Bowl, but 5'10.75 at the combine, and he was 22 or 23
If anyone wants to do more research here are the 2012 Senior Bowl Measuremnts

To compare w/ draft heights go to NFL Draft Scout

However it should be noted that Tebow was measured at 6'2.75 at both the Senior Bowl and The Draft Combine

Tony said on 4/Jan/13
Ok yes I believe @ the combine NFL Players are measured and weighed first, then they move on to the 10, 20 and 40 yd dash's and 3 cone drill. I believe the MLB's listed heights are often fraudulent, as they do not have a combine,pre draft day or draft day that I am aware of

I guess Brendan isn't 6'4" like he's listed, because even giving Tebow his combine height 6'2.75" the guy is barely taller.
Mathew said on 4/Jan/13
[Editor Rob: yes, I believe it's more an earlier morning measurement.]

Maybe this should be noted at the top in his description, that way people will understand why he's listed a half inch under his combine measurement.

yeah I'll put that above.

I could be wrong but a I thought the NFL records their height barefoot and his listed height taken at the combine was 6-2.75
True, but what you guys need to realize here is that most sport leagues (NBA, NFL, MLB, etc.) in the US hold their physicals (which include measurments) first thing in the MORNING! Even before the players get their breakfast! No joke, I've seen this in quite a few sports documentaries.
SolidSnake said on 4/Jan/13
All the NBA players I see on this site are listed at the draft measurements, but Tebow you took off .5''? Are the NBA players not also measured in the morning?

Rob: I don't like to criticize you on anything because I think you do an excellent job with this site, but why is Mr. Tebow listed at 6,2.25 when the NFL draftscout page that has the legit and official measurement say 6,2.6 or 190 cm! He is 6,2.6! Take a look at a Rob when you got the time.
