Jensen yielded nearly
50 skeletons of seven foot men
One of these Indian mounds not far from Jensen yielded nearly 50 skeletons of seven foot men and it was estimated that nearly a thousand bodies were buried here probably after a battle, so anyone may take up this interesting study at their leisure.
The tallest basketball player in the NFL any given year averages to be 7 foot 3 inches. Usually the tallest is found by a scout that searches the globe, not just the U.S..
The average height for an nfl player is 6′ 4″ so the average of these 50 individuals are 9 inches taller minimum. This does not take into account that skeletons may shrink up to three inches, so in fact every one of these 50 individuals were taller than the tallest nfl player. A seven footer today is about one out of 2,300,000 people, meaning to get 50 7 footers we have to have 115,000,000 million people to chose from.
