Tallest Wide Receiver

CHAD JOHNSON OR TERREL OWENS

Terrel Owens is listed at 6'3. Chad Johnson is listed at 6'4. I believe Plaxico Burress and Joe Jurevicious are both listed at 6'5. I don't know any others taller than that.

Harold Carmichael, who played with the Philadelphia Eagles 1971-1983 and the Dallas Cowboys in 1984, was 6'8".

Also Wes Lyons for the Pittsburgh Steelers is 6'8".
