The 2020 NFL Scouting Combine is underway, and the official measurement of top QB Joe Burrow’s hands are mysteriously identical to that of LA Rams quarterback Jared Goff

The LA Rams may not be drafting first, nor seeking a franchise quarterback, in the 2020 NFL Draft. But that doesn’t mean the fans of the LA Rams cannot compare the NFL Combine results of quarterback Jared Goff with those of the top 2020 NFL Scouting Combine quarterbacks.

The 2016 NFL Scouting Combine was sold as the faceoff between two quarterbacks: Jared Goff and Carson Wentz.  The 2016 NFL Draft went that way as well – with the LA Rams trading up to select Goff as the top pick of the draft, and the Philadelphia Eagles trading up to select Wentz second of that same draft.

Now, four years later, the NFL Draft is selling the showdown of quarterbacks Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa.  And in a remarkable bit of NFL trivia, the 2020 NFL Combine is replaying one bit of history all over again.  It seems that LSU QB Joe Burrows is the identical hand twin to LA Rams quarterback Jared Goff.

And so the NFL Combine arrives in 2020.

For the record, 2016 Jared Goff measured 6-foot-4 in height, 215 pounds in weight, 32.75-inch arm length, and 9-inch hands. 2020 Joe Burrow measured 6-foot-3.5 in height, 221 pounds in weight, 30.875-inch arm length, and 9-inch hands.

The size comparison is uncannily almost identical and reminds me of the Friends episode where Joey meets his identical hand twin in Las Vegas.  And of course, the smaller size of Joe Burrow’s hands has renewed the argument of whether an NFL quarterback needs large hands to succeed.

For years, many have tried to correlate the success of the NFL quarterback with their hand size.  So far, despite the countless articles and persuasive reasoning, there truly is no correlation once an NFL quarterback’s hands meet a 9-inch threshold.
