If you are a wide receiver looking to get into the NFL, you never want to be labeled as “drop-prone.” At least if you get that label, you certainly don’t want to have your hands measured out to be some of the smallest of the draft class.
That is exactly what happened to former Notre Dame wide receiver Will Fuller. He is considered to be one of the most athletic receivers in the 2016 NFL Draft class, but has a problem holding on to the ball.
He dropped 21 passes over the last two seasons with the Fighting Irish and we may now know the reason why. Fuller checked in at the NFL Scouting Combine with 8 1/4 inch hands.
That is a pretty bad measurement for Fuller, but he should be able to make up for it in his weekend workouts. He has also proven that he can be an elite receiver in the NFL, he will just have to work on his focus when it comes to catching passes.
