Jared Goff’s Tiny Hands Are Going To Cost Him Millions?


Jared Goff is screwed. His hands are too small. That’s the early report that NFL scouts are floating, according to USA Today’s Tom Pellisero, just as we’re about to get down to business in Indianapolis at the 2016 Combine. Never forget, just a couple years ago it was being floated that Manziel’s hand size was off the charts and it was helping his draft stock. Of course he went 22nd overall.

At one point, Mel Kiper had Manziel going 3rd to the Browns, then he changed that to 8th to the Vikings. Yep, that hand size shot Johnny right up the boards.

Don’t sweat it, Goff.

One point of curiosity for coaches/scouts entering combine week: how does Jared Goff measure? Smallest of top QBs, hands supposedly tiny.

Ahh, coaches and scouts have to be right…ALL THOSE FUMBLES AT CAL!

Jared Goff had 23 fumbles while at Cal which the small hands would help explain……he's gonna lose millions because of it.

Jared Goff’s fumbles went down, maybe his hands grew a little bigger over the last three years.


But the Goff’s INTs went up.


And he’s a fan of the Counting Crows…straight down the boards!
