    Why does the NFL measure hand size? *Link*

    http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/...ick?id=2495186

    he's 6'5 but has a hand of 9"

    how does hand size even matter? even if he was an OL or DL?

    bigger hands = easier to catch ball.

    I know Hakeem Nicks wears a 3x or 4x glove and he snags balls out of the air like nothin. Same with Andre Johnson

    have you ever held an NFL game ball? it takes big hands not only to throw it with any accuracy but also to hold onto it when being sacked and running. same for RBs.


    as far as non skill positions, big hands are never a bad thing. it's a lot easier to tackle or block a pass with big, strong hands.

    It's nothing major and shouldn't really have much impact in scouting guys but the claim is guys with smaller hands tend to fumble more.

    Of course if you protect your small handed QB while the guy with size 12 paws gets DL in his face on half the snaps....it doesn't matter so much.
