It’s NFL combine week which means fans are going to be over-analyzing every single bit of information about potential draft picks from now until the draft in a few months.
The biggest story/non-story coming out of the combine so far is Joe Burrow’s hand size.
Of the 35 quarterbacks drafted in the first round since 2008, the average hand size has been 9 7/10 inches, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
Over the past 10 years, a mere three quarterbacks with 9-inch hands have attempted more than 300 passes — Goff, Tannehill and Chad Henne. During that span, none of them has a Total QBR above 55.
Burrow joked about the whole hand size controversy on Twitter.
Super Bowl winning QB Patrick Mahomes, who also is considered to have small hands for a QB, chimed in to support Burrow.
There’s no chance the Bengals pass up on Burrow no matter how big or small his hands are.
