It looks to be on the smallish side of hands, but not so much that he can't hang on to the ball.

Certainly adequate size. A little shorter than I would have hoped (I realize that 7/8 of an inch is not a big deal, so relax), and with a little smaller hands, but these numbers should not hurt his stock.

Actually the guy with smallish hands, if any, is Bortles with 1/8th larger than TB at 3 inches taller.

In relation to the football that is not the case.

Both should be good enough. If they were 8-1/4" and 8-3/8" then I would be concerned.

His hands are certainly smaller than i anticipated..but still very much adequate for the position. It explains a few things though.

He almost never throws a spiral...

Default Re: Teddy Bridgewater

So, IŽd say the questions about his size/frame has been answered? Although he doesn`t have prototypical size and frame IŽd say they are more then adequat. His hand size might be a small concern, but he never was much of a fumbler and always a pretty acurate passer.

I am pretty sure he will interview well. Actually I am pretty sure he will do everything well. If he doesn`t end up the first pick it will be more because of his level of competition and because the team wants another kind of player at QB - I don`t think he could`ve presented himself much better with the position he was in. In my mind he is still the number 1 QB and a guy, you can build your team around. He might not have the ceiling of Manziel, but I think his worst case is Alex Smith (ultimate game manager that doesn`t do many mistakes) with a good chance of him becoming way better than that.

Most likely it'll be the "competition faced" angle..

That makes sense, scientifically speaking. If your grip is a function of the force exerted by the hand and the surface area of the force applied by surface of the hand multiplied by some coefficient of friction, then by adding gloves with a much higher coefficient of friction you thus increase the grip. I wonder how much length it makes up for. Ie a 8 inch gloves hand is comparable to a 8 1/2 inch unblocked hand.

I didn't say anything about not big enough and Texian it has nothing to do with "in relation to football." Bortles as a much bigger guy has marginally larger hands. That is not a comment that either is too small. It is more an observation on the commentary to date. Their hand size is insignificantly different to the eye and yet the larger Bortles was never questioned about it, i.e. this has all been created controversy over the glove or just people repeating things about TB.

Dan Marino had small hands but he pushed the ball and played in Miami where his hands were moist and gripped better .

Talk about over-analyzing. The kid is big enough and plays very well. Open and shut case, Johnson.
