If he weighs 215 he meets the weight of prototypical franchise QB. He's already as prolific as any franchise QB was in college. Reports are that he has the work ethic, intelligence, and other intangibles of a franchise QB. And he's been playing in a pro system for years.

His weight & level of competition would make him a questionable pick, imo, passing on him would be just as understandable as taking him with the #1 overall. If he settles the weight issue at the combine then passing him becomes harder to explain than taking him.

Not to be negative Nancy, but small hands point to small frame.

His coach says that Teddy has big hands and he just likes gloves . Look at the length of his hands compared to his head . Also look at the tip of the thumb and pinkie , they cover half the ball .

So he's got a small head.

If he's got large/small hands, that will come out at the combine. It doesn't hurt now to say "small hands indicate small frame"

Thing is you're making stuff up also. TB doesn't hold the ball low,plus he keeps 2 hands on the ball even when he's climbing or navigating in the pocket. That's why when he takes sacks,the ball doesn't move,nor do you see guys run by and knock the ball out.

It does if the bolded is not true.

The length of the phalanges and metacarpals in a person's hand has no impact on the size of anything else on the rest of his body.

How about we see what his height, weight, and hand size are at the combine? Then we can tear it apart. At this point it's unknown.

His hands appear at least average size to me. Who cares if the guy wears gloves? He wouldn't be the only successful QB in the NFL who did.

For the record, if his hands measure small at the combine it will be a red flag, no matter what the TB lovers say.

Default Re: Teddy Bridgewater

If people are mostly nit-picking his weight, which he can certainly gain during the offseason, hand size, frame size, then honestly I would take him in a heartbeat at #1.

It's not like he wants to be a lineman in the NFL.

Haha wow you have obviously never weight trained or done any body building. 12,000 calories day is INSANE, there is no way in hell someone of Teddy's size is eating that much, he doesn't have enough muscle mass to use that many calories no matter how much training he is doing per day. If Teddy is indeed 6"3 200 pounds right now and is weight training very hard, his BMR dictates that he will burn around 4041 kcal a day. So assuming he eats at a 500-1000 caloric surplus for adding bulk, he will be eating a max of 5050 calories a day.

Reggie Bush was thought to be too small to carry the load & take the punishment to be an NFL RB. Though he has proven to be a productive player in the NFL, his history in the league has shown to warrant such concerns.

The QB position is the most important position on the field. You can not afford to lose him for several games a year.

Yeah people are really getting way to critical and overanalyzing him, acting like 1 inch here or 5 pounds there is going to make all the difference. 5 pounds so minute that if he weighs in at or 210 or 215 it makes almost no difference, that 5 pounds can fluctuate day to day anyways in water weight.

That's why there's a plethora of 6'3" 196lb QBs running around the league.

You missed my point. Which was arguing about a couple pounds is irrelevant and makes no difference, 5 pounds can literally fluctuate from AM to PM because of hydration and food, so arguing about a margin that razor thin is dumb.

The expectation is not that he'll live the rest of his days at 215. Getting to 215 shows he has the ability to reach a more robust playing weight.

But since we have no reliable baseline, how does getting to 215 show ability? We have no idea what he weighed "before", so we can't say "oh he weighed X amount before and now weighs 215 so good on him for putting on that weight" It's all such huge amounts of speculation.

Dave Krieg had very small hands. And because of that, he was prone to fumbling. He didn't have as good a grip on the ball as someone with larger hands.

So.

Yeah, hand-size is important for a QB.
