  • Senior Bowl Week

    Looks like we should get measurements (and Kenny Pickett's hand size) soon.
    Practices start tomorrow.

    I am definitely curious to see how some guys height and weight compare to how they were listed

              A caveat in the hand size discussions


              Pauline then went on to discuss Pickett’s hand size. While Pauline confirmed that Pickett will measure in with hands under the standard 9 inches, he revealed a previously unknown caveat in the hand size discussion that could change the way Pickett’s hands are viewed. Here’s what Pauline had to say:

              “As far as his hands are concerned … you want your quarterback to have 9-inch hands,” Pauline said. “Now, I’ve been told time and time again by scouts, when Pickett’s hands were measured, they measured slightly over 8 inches — which would be a red flag.

              “But there’s a caveat — there’s a curveball to this. I’ve verified this with a number of people. Kenny Pickett evidently has a double-jointed thumb on his throwing hand. Somebody said to me, ‘if you ever meet Pickett and he shakes your hand, the thumb seems all out of wack.’ That’s because it comes out sideways, and it doesn’t go straight up. And what that double-jointed thumb does, is it makes it easier for him to grip the football.

              “I’ve talked to a couple of people that say ‘yeah, if his hands are under 9 inches,’ but the double-jointed thumb is working to his advantage — to basically grip the football. Some teams who really like Kenny Pickett may overlook the fact that his hands are under 9 inches if this double-jointed thumb is going to help him.

              “Now what they’ll do, is they’ll put the ball in his hands, and they’ll try to beat it out of his hands to see if he can grip the football. But what I’m hearing is, this double-jointed thumb on Kenny Pickett’s throwing hand is actually working to his advantage and may offset the concerns about the small hand size.”

                Yeah this is sketchy, I don't like it.

                        Now we will start to see some movement in the QB draft positioning as the practices commence.

                          I don't even think it's movement. Sometimes the media pushes narratives when they need clicks and they circle back around to the reality of the situation once it's apparent and then claim people's stock "rose".
                          You are looking at 3 QB's in the first round, possibly 4. Pickett is a lock for the 1st at this point. Corral is likely the next guy off the board. Willis and Strong are probably the next 2. Question is, how does the medical on Strong's knee come back? Howell was the 1A or 1B darling to go #1 early on last year along with Rattler and it didn't pan out.

                                  The class is weak. Denver would be smart to either go all in for one of these veterans or just try to see what Lock can do with a new staff.

                                    I agree. Get the vet, and wait for a better year.

                                  So you want them to do a completely different measurement? What value would that bring?

                                    Wrap it around a football and measure it. Should be pretty much functionally equivalent given the context.

                                      I want to wait until Hackett starts meeting and assessing players. What does he think about Lock? Inquiring minds want to know!

                                        Lock in 2022 is becoming more and more a thing.

                                          There are a few players in the top of this draft at other positions (Oline, LB) that I would love to see on the Broncos.

                                            The 2017 draft was "weak" too and it gave the NFL Mahomes and Watson. 2018 was supposedly a QB rich draft and only two - Allen and Jackson have proven to be great. The rest suck. I am pretty sure no one knows how the kids will perform.

                                              Not really talked about on this board a lot but I’m watching Ridder for the Senior Bowl. Seems to have the athleticism, intangibles for Hackett’s offense. Plus he’s working with Jordan Palmer this off-season.

                                              Not a great first practice but a lot of good QBs have had bad first days. We’ll see if he can progress through the week.

                                                If they had everyone do that, sure. If not then it is Completely meaningless (not that it has much meaning to begin with)
