Source: Joe Burrow measured with 9-inch hands at NFL combine

Another talking point regarding potential No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrowsurfaced when his measurements were taken on Monday morning at the NFL combine in Indianapolis.

Burrow's hand size was measured at 9 inches, a source confirmed to ESPN. The information was first reported by Yahoo Sports.

Per ESPN Stats & Information, the length from pinkie to thumb was tied for the smallest among first-round quarterbacks measured at the combine since 2008. Ryan Tannehill and Jared Goff, the others with that hand size, were both instructed by current Cincinnati Bengals coach Zac Taylor.

Taylor and the Bengals could potentially draft Burrow with the franchise's first top overall pick since 2003. Taylor, a former quarterback at Nebraska, had a 9-inch hand measurement at the 2007 combine.

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. Kansas City Chiefsquarterback Patrick Mahomes, who led Kansas City to victory at Super Bowl LIV and was named the game's MVP, registered at 9¼ inches in 2017.

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 enters this week's scouting combine as the overwhelming favorite to be the top overall pick. The former LSU quarterback won the Heisman Trophy and led the Tigers to a national championship in his final year of college.

Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa and Oregon's Justin Herbert were measured with 10-inch hands. Along with Burrow, they are expected to be among the top quarterback prospects available in the upcoming draft.

I'm sorry, I can't resist. We might as well just measure dick sizes also. I would also be very interested to know the circumference of each players individual testicles going back to 1969.

Tua's measured 10" on the left and 97/8" on the right. I gotta think Burrow's small hands might make a cold weather team (Cincy?) take notice.

Also, it’s not just hand size it’s hand flexibility. They measure from thump to pinky so part of it is how far you can stretch your hand out.

LMAO

I swear I thought the same thing. How are we going to make it through the next 3+ weeks without him?

 

Someone should start a "Best of @joewilly12 thread", just to help ease our anxiety.

Kurt Warner also had small hands for a pro qb.  He wore gloves to help him keep the ball in his possession.  No big deal.  

I would still ABSOLUTELY take Herbert over JB and Tua regardless of hand size.

yeah... he had gorilla hands.  DIdn't matter.  Still a fumbler.  And too bad he didn't have anything even close to a gorilla's brain.

if big hands prevented fumbles, Mark Sanchez wouldn't be forever known for the buttfumble 

it helps to have some conscious thought up there

triple wide, I assume.  I am a 4E myself.
