NY Giants have the shortest, fastest receivers in NFC East
Average Height: 73.8 inches
The Dallas Cowboys have the tallest team of receivers within the NFC East. No player stands under 73 inches, or 6’1”.
Starter Amari Cooper is actually one of the two shortest on the team, along with Michael Gallup. The team’s size comes in its bench players like CeeDee Lamb and Cedrick Wilson. But none help more than the team’s fifth round selection of the 2021 NFL Draft, Simi Fehoko.
Fehoko, who stands at 75 inches, or 6’4”, is the third-tallest NFC East receiver, behind Kenny Golladay of the Giants at 76 inches, and the Washington Football Team’s Cam Sims, who stands at 77 inches, or 6’5”.
Cam Sims helps push Washington into second tallest in the division with an average of 72.6 inches. All four other receivers pulled for this article, such as the team’s number one receiver Terry McLaurin, are either 71 or 72 inches, about 6’.
As stated previously, the NY Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles are in a tie for last, standing 72.2 inches tall, or a hair over 6’.
While Kenny Golladay is the second-tallest player in the division, Sterling Shepard is the shortest, at 70 inches tall. The Giants are the only team within NFC East to have a receiver under 71 inches. The team’s two newest additions to the position — Kadarius Toney and John Ross — are both 71 inches.
The Eagles’s tallest receiver is Travis Fulgham, who stands at 74 inches. But Fulgham is currently fourth on the team’s depth chart. Starter Jalen Reagor and 2021 first round pick DeVonta Smith stand at 71 and 72 inches.
