Wouldn’t a 7-footer be quite a bit ‘longer’ than someone 6’4” with the same wingspan?

Not necessarily. There are plenty of NBA and WNBA posts whose wing span is the same as their height, or at best an additional couple of inches. Stewie is a freak of nature, and I mean that it the best way possible.

What I mean is wouldn't a 7-footer with a 7'1" wingspan be longer than a 6'4" player with a 7'1" wingspan?

Hmm, interesting question. With their arms out to the side they would be the same, but is there a difference in overhead reach (assuming identical body width, neck height, and head height). I dunno.
