Yesterday, I looked at the average height of the receivers of each team in the NFL in 2013. Today, we’ll use the same method but look at every NFL team since 1950. As it turns out, the 2013 Bears rank as one of the third tallest group of receivers in history. The only thing Chicago didn’t have was a 6’8 Harold Carmichael.

The table below shows the 200 teams with the tallest average receivers since 1950. A couple of famous teams are at the top of the list, including the 2007 Super Bowl champion Giants. Eli Manning will never be confused with a hyper-accurate quarterback, so it was smart of the Giants to surround him with tall targets like Plaxico Burress, Amani Toomer, and Jeremy Shockey. The 1998-2000 Minnesota Vikings with Randy Moss, Cris Carter, Jake Reed, and Andrew Glover, all made the top 25. And before Chicago had Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett, the Bears had another trio of monster wide receivers: Harlon Hill, Bill McColl, and Jim Dooley.

I’ll leave it to you guys in the comments to let me know what stands out to you about the shortest teams. But let me close with an graph of the average of each team’s average receiving height in each year since 1950:


I think we can attribute the nadir of the curve to the phasing out of the tight end position at the end of the ’80s. But this is a pretty interesting graph, and one that I don’t think would be intuitive to even league historians. Since 1990, though, the average height has been steadily increasing. Is that a trend that’s here to stay, or should we expect another dip in the next few years?

    This post needs to be renamed to “Harold Carmichael was both really good and really tall”.

    I would expect receiver height to continue trending up for a couple of reasons. We have the recent rise of the receiving TE, with several more projected to enter the league in the first round this year. A more prosaic explanation would just be the continued trend towards bigger, stronger, and faster players in all sports, not just the NFL, as a growing population produces more and more people several standard deviations above the mean.

    I love seeing all the run n shoot guys there. As soon as I heard “shortest WR corps”, the first thing that popped in to mind was the Run N Shoot Oilers. Is it just the lack of tight ends that causes the average to go down? How common is it for team to have zero “true” WR’s who are under 6 feet tall?

    How about the 1988 Falcons? Their leading receiver was John Settle. That was my first year of fantasy football. I had no idea what I was doing, and I drafted Stacey Bailey. John Settle started scoring a bunch of points, but was a free agent in our league. I remember trying to get him, but can’t remember if I ever did. How often does a 1,000-yard rusher also lead his team in receptions and receiving yards? Marion Campbell strikes again!

    The problem with this data is that just because a person is a leading receiver does not make them one. The 2013 Detroit Lions WR’s were not Joique Belle and Reggie Bush, they were running backs. If this mistake was made over the course of all of this data then all of it is junk or you need to change what is being studied. It should be Tallest and Shortest groups of leaders in receptions rather than Wide Receiver groups.

      Anon…. Agreed. Even the top spot on the list is flawed, as two of the listed players (Tom Sullivan and Norm Bulaich) were running backs, not wide-outs. Many of the players listed were tight ends. The study needs to be re-done or, at the very least, re-titled, as you suggested…..
