This chart is meant to represent most of the largest known theropods of the Jurassic (I didn't put like every species of Allosaurus
Sorry, in this post I won't explain too much on how I got the estimates, perhaps I will in a journal.
Using specimen numbers is probably a good idea, but I might put it in the journal I was talking about.
I decided I am not very art so I'm just going to use skeletals and then flesh them out a bit to what I think looks nice.
A lot of these I have scaled myself and other (probably more intelligent) people have confirmed similar or same sizes with their scalings. However I did not attempt to scale Dandakosaurus
yet, randomdinos did though and randomdinos is cool. But Dandakosaurus
is highly speculative because we do not know its exact phylogenetic position so we don't know what the best base is. Here it is based on Sinosaurus

I used the Acrocanthosaurus and Torvosaurus (tanneri) skeletals made by
I used the Dandakosaurus and Allosaurus skeletals made by
I'm pretty sure the Allosaurus skeletal he made was adapted from
though, and I'm not entirely sure what he based the Sinosaurus off of.
I used the Yangchuanosaurus skeletal made by
