That's an awfully strange release where his top fingers are so well below the top of the ball......and by the looks of his feet being so close together, he is evidently in a non-action form.

One of the things that has not really been emphasized is how often he fumbles. Having watched him enough in the past, it is obvious that the ball has a knack of slipping out of his hand quite regularly, even without being hit.

I can't find his hand size listed, but it has been reported that his hands are quite small. And a small-handed QB has a much more difficult time of controlling a high release point.





I don't believe that OB will be able to change his release point trying to affect less batted down balls and INTs without making him "wilder" than he already is.
