You know what they say about big hands.
Unless the Titans trade away the top pick in the draft, the Browns will be able to choose between quarterbacks Jared Goff and Carson Wentz with the No. 2 pick.
Considering Jackson’s preference for big-handed quarterbacks, which he talked about again on Thursday, it would seem the Browns are leaning toward Wentz, whose hands measured 10 inches at the NFL Scouting Combine while Goff’s hands measured only nine inches.
Goff’s 23 fumbles in three years at Cal suggests that his small hands are a problem, but he fumbled only four times last season.
Jared Goff has 9″ hands Of the 37 QBs drafted in 1st round since 2003 only 2 had 9″ hands or smaller: Tannehill (2012) and Losman (2004)

The Browns certainly don’t want to draft another J.P. Losman, and with the second overall pick they’ll want a quarterback who can at least get them into the playoffs within four years. Tannehill hasn’t done that in Miami.
If size really matters that much to Jackson, the Browns might want to think about a deal with the Titans.
