Oregon DL DeForest Buckner’s hands measure bigger than sheet of paper

Former Oregon defensive lineman DeForest Buckner is a massive individual at 6-foot-7, 291 pounds, which means he probably has big hands.

And Buckner does have big hands, measured at 11 3/4 inches to be exact, and NFL Network’s Andrew Siciliano took to Twitter to put that size in greater context.

Simply put, Buckner’s hands are sure to impress NFL scouts. He’s already considered a potential Top 10 pick, and having hands bigger than a sheet of paper (11 x 8.5) only ups his stocks. Considering how the former three-star recruit from Hawaii proved his worth as both a pass-rusher and a force in the middle with the Ducks, posting 232 tackles (36 for a loss) with 18 sacks to go with 10 pass breakups and two forced fumbles in four seasons in Eugene, it’s clear that he is more than capable of putting those hands to good use.

Needless to say, it’s going to be interesting to see how Buckner performs during his workout day.
