Small Hands Aren’t The Be-All, End-All
Much was made about Goff’s hand size during February’s NFL Combine, but it’s hardly THE indicator of success.
Goff’s hands measured at 9 inches, while Wentz’s hands measured 10 inches.
Factory of Sadness editor Evan Hablitzel recently covered this topic, and pointed to some research conducted by writer Colby Smith prior to the 2014 NFL Draft.
In his findings, Smith discovered “The group with hands between 9.25 and 9.75 inches outperformed the groups on either side of the less than or greater than symbol.”
The bottom line? Goff’s hands are good enough.
Tony Romo‘s hands are actually smaller than 9-inches.
The point is that hand size can’t offer an end-all, be-all answer on Goff. Should it be a factor? Probably, but Goff’s hands are big enough that it shouldn’t matter.
