It depends on the position of the player.

According to a 2006 ESPN article, "The average weight in the NFL has grown by 10 percent since 1985 to a current average of 248 pounds. The heaviest position, offensive tackle, went from 281 pounds two decades ago to 318 pounds."

Most pro football players are over 6 feet tall. Some kickers can be shorter however.
