Default Eric Berry Question

I saw Eric Berry today and something was really weird. I stood right next to him and he was shorter then me. The problem with this is he is listed by some as 6'0 tall and I'm 5'9. He look just a little shorter then me so I'm guessing he's a low 5'9 (5'9 2/8) or a high 5'8 (5'8 6/8) When I went to the doctors I was listed as 5 Feet 9 Inches and 6/10ths.



Walterfootball: 6'0
NFL Draft Scout: 5'11
Wiki: 5'11 1/2

Michael Crabtree was officially measured at a high 6'3 and then he turned out to be 6'1.
That doesn't mean anything until you hit the combine. My question is if he turns out to be 5'9 or 5'8 does it hurt his stock?

High school heights and weights are more inflated than college ones. In high school, I was listed at 6'1 215 lbs, when I was no bigger than about 5'10 and 190 lbs.

As for the height question, I doubt it. He's shown that he's a major baller. On second thought, let him slide to the Eagles!

Eagles? I think it's only fair that he goes with the 33rd pick. Don't you agree? They don't need a rookie scale if the worst team gets him.

No, he won't make it to the first pick of the second round. The Eagles would take him at 32.

With what Bob Sanders has done in the NFL at 5'8? I don't think it hurts his stock really if he's 5'9.

Bob Sanders - 5'8
Troy Polamalu - 5'10
Mike Brown - 5'10

Hopefully he does fall, maybe my niners can take him with one of our first round picks.

The Texans have dibs on Berry.

If he is really 5'8 or 5'9 it could possibly hurt his stock a little, but not that much.

With that being said, I've never stood next to him, but he looks taller than 5'9 on TV.

The only excuse for not having a boner around Berry would be if you had previously been around Mays, and suffered from a boner explosion as a result.

He's not that big. I've stood next to him and he seems a little short, granted I am 6'3 but still. Shouldn't hurt his stock too much.

I'm not going to debate whether standing next to someone is an accurate measure of height.

But if he does measure in at somewhere between 5-8 and 5-9, it does hurt him a bit as a prospect. It probably removes him from a top 5 possibility (I didn't really expect that anyway) and it gives Taylor Mays another physical advantage to try and leap over him on team's boards.

I don't think it really hurts him as a player. In fact, being that height will make his lack of weight less of a concern, because his bulk will profile better in that height. And we all know that there's a lot of functional safeties out there at that height. But yeah, once these guys are out of pads for about 4 months, something like that would knock him down a little bit. That said, there's a lot that he could do to overwrite a disappointing height measurement at the combine (like turning in a good vertical).

I don't think there's a shot in hell he measures in at under 5'10.

I don't think any argument of Berry>Mays (and they are legitimate, although I respectfully disagree) is predicated on physical stature anyway. Taylor Mays is the best physical specimen of a safety prospect since Sean Taylor, and if not for him, it would be ever.

Heres him standing next to Demetrice Morley who is listed at 6'0



Good chance Morley isn't even 6'0, so that would make Berry look about 5'10 or 5'9

Watch more football, and read more carefully. Mario is not a safety, although if he really wanted to he probably could be.
