Jamison Crowder is 5-foot-9, 174 pounds. The average American male is 5′ 9″ and weighs 197 lbs according to HealthLine.com. So Jamison is the avg guy you see every day walking down the street. But when you place him next to NFL first-round pick Mekhi Becton on the sidelines, he looks more like a Pop Warner player.
Mekhi Becton is 6-feet-7 and 370 pounds. He is NOT the average American male. In fact, in weight he is double the size of the average american male. So when he stood next to Crowder in Jets practice it was quite a sight to see.
Check it out for yourself. Thankfully someone on the NY Jet’s social media team was able to capture the moment when Crowder stood next to Becton.
I a pretty big dude. I stand about 6’4″ and weigh around 220. So by American standards I’m way above average. When I stand next to people that are taller and bigger than me its always an awkward feeling. I’m not used to being the “small” guy. I once interviewed James Edwards and Uncle Cliff Robinson at Bravo Bravo (an event in Detroit). James is 7’1″ and Cliff is 6’10”. Those 2 absolutely dwarfed me.
Here is me next to Thomas Hearns who stands about 6’1″. I look like a normal human.
Perspective can be a crazy thing. No matter how you perceive it the NFL’s Mekhi Becton is a large man.
