Russell Wilson Height

"I truly believe in positive synergy, that your positive mindset gives you a more hopeful outlook, and belief that you can do something great means you will do something great."

~ Russell Wilson

American football player, Russell Wilson is known for playing for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League (NFL).

It is a strange fact but a true one which we have learned after documenting the height of more than 500 celebrities. We have noticed that NFL is actually better at listing their players' real height than NBA. You would have expected a height-based sports league like NBA to do better -- but that's not the case.

Russell Wilson's official height is 5-feet-11 inches, and his weight is 215 lb (98 kg).

But by Russell Wilson's own admission he is not actually full 5-feet-11 inches tall. Taking this remark into consideration and after taking a careful look at Mr. Wilson and comparing his height to a few other people, we think his real height might actually be between 5-feet-10 inches to 5-feet-11 inches.

The real height of Russell Wilson is

5'10½" or 179 cm
