Who are the tallest players in the NFL/Madden?

There have been some tall players in the NFL but most of the really tall guys play O or D Line.

How tall is Gronk? Isn't he like 6'7" or something?

Apparently, back in the day there was a receiver named Harold Carmichael who was 6'8" who played from '71 to '84.

Who is the tallest receiver/TE [or even better] CB you have seen in Madden and/or with hand crafted rookies?

Carmichael is currently the Director of Player Development for the Eagles, and was an absolute force in his playing days.

Tiny Smith-Deadrick was a WR in Madden 10 or 11, I forgot which, but he was 6'8. Note the subtle humor in his name.

WR Ramses Barden on the Giants (or he used to be on the Giants) is in that 6'6'' to 6'8'' range, can't remember specifically but he was always a lanky redzone target to pickup in Madden.

Re: Who are the tallest players in the NFL/Madden?

Well since you already mentioned one eagle, I'll throw another out there.

King Dunlap, the Eagles backup OT is listed as 6-9 330. I was standing by him at the Eagles training camp 2 years ago. He is BIG dude.

[edit] A quick google search of "tallest player in nfl" lead me to this...

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/7...-each-position

For those that don't want to follow the link, the tallest player in NFL history was...
OAK DT Richard Sligh who was listed at 7'0"

In generated drafts I've seen multiple 6'11 receivers over the years. Most recently last year.

Re: Who are the tallest players in the NFL/Madden?

In Madden, I just saw a 6' 8" lineman. More than a few 6' 6" to 6' 8" guys in my franchise (just about all of them linemen).

Don't see a lot of tall WR, though.

I have TE on my team who is 6' 7", one of the few non-linemen that range in that height class.

I've seen some UDFA's that were both 6'7" 220+... both were on teams with needs at WR so I edited them both to give them a chance to make it in the league.

You are thinking of Calais Campbell, 3-4 DE for the Cardinals; Campbell is 6'8.
