So, I was watching this thing on the NFL combine. All the players physical attributes are measured there, and one of which is the hand size. Is the hand measurement from bottom of palm to tip of middle finger?

Because I measured mine, and I am about 7.5 inches from base of palm to tup of middle finger. However Tim Tebow was like 10.24 inches, and Mark Sanchez was like 11 inches. Is that right? How can anyone have hands that big? Does that sound right?

10.25 inches here, but I'm known for my extremely big hands.
I also wear a size 14 shoe, for that matter.

For FYI Andres that 7.5 shoe is a tad under 10 imnches.

My frind mike and I have almost exactly same sized hands. except for some reson his thumb is a whole inch longer than mine. I can palm a basketball but he grip a basketball like a grapefruit.

Just measured hand span and measured 27.2 cm. That should be 10.7086614 inches

Re checked hand size, and it's 23.9 cm. 9.40944882 inches

Got my maths all wrong :)

Yea Andres you got some gigantic meat hooks dude.

I just measured my hand and its 9 7/8. which gives me bigger hands than Sam Bradford 9 1/2, Jimmy Clausen 9, and Colt McCoy 9 3/8. Tebows got the 10 1/8 clubs though.

And Favre was 10 5/8 no wonder he was sending texts the sterger broad.

Was that a real camera in your hand? lol

So is the measurement pinky to thumb or is it from base of palm to middle finger?

I have read that Mark Sanchez has like some of the biggest hands on a QB though. Shaking hands with him would probably be pretty intimidating lol.
