Reaching the ball

Are your arms long enough to become an NFL Player?

You might think that these things are unimportant compared with the talent and athleticism needed to become a professional football player. In fact, it would be very difficult to throw, catch, control the ball, block or tackle with small hands and short arms. So, in terms of football, size does matter.

  • Longest NFL Player: 36.75″ OT Ryan Clady
  • Average Wide Receiver*: 32.2″
  • Average Quaterback*: 32.14″
