Best Positions Based On Height & Weight

Below we will be discussing the best positions to play in football based on your height and weight. This is a common question we get asked so I hope this is able to help!

Also, if you play WR and would like a 2 month daily workout schedule to follow, checkout the link below! We give you 8 weeks of field route running workouts (sets & reps/video examples included), 8 weeks of WR specific gym workouts (sets/reps/examples includes) and a 1 Month speed development workout plan to do. Check it out here ⬇️⬇️⬇️

So if you’re new to football and struggling with what position you should play, below are going to be some general guidelines of where you’d fit best based on height and weight. This is specific for high school, but if you’re in middle school and you’re projected to be this big in high school- this is what I’d say to play also.

5’5-5’9 (130-165) Slot WR or DB

5’5-5’9 (170-200) Linebacker or RB

5’10-6’3+ (150-180) (athletic) Outside WR or DB

5’10-6’3 (180-225) Safety, Linebacker, RB or TE

6’0+ (250lbs+) O-Line Or D-Line
