Tallest NFL Offensive Tackles

Who Are The Tallest Offensive Tackles in the NFL? (2023-24)

As an experienced sports performance coach with two decades of experience, I’ve found great value in sharing the physical heights and weights of NFL players with the collegiate athletes I coach. This practice has proven to be a great source of inspiration and motivation, and at times, it serves as a valuable reality check.

For this season, I conducted the same detailed research I always do. I analyzed the 53-man active rosters of the 2023 NFL season, right after the final cuts of the preseason, which included nearly 1700 players in total. Then, I broke down these rosters by position.

Due to popular demand, I’ve compiled this guide focusing on the tallest NFL Offensive Tackles in the league this year, each standing at 6’8″ or above. Prepare to share some impressive, yet random, football trivia with your friends.
