Wingspan Measurements

The Wingspan Measurement measures the distance between a prospects arm lengths fully extended horizontally outwards from the body from the tip of the middle finger on one hand to the tip of the middle finger on the other.

Like Arm Length, having a longer Wingspan is beneficial in many ways to many players at different positions. Long arms generally help to establish distance between players, which can help in defeating blocks, defeating a jam at the line of scrimmage, or influence a quarterbacks motion of delivery, among other things.

This measurement is important for quarterbacks, wide receivers, tight ends, offensive linemen, defensive linemen, linebackers and defensive backs. With an added emphasis to quarterbacks, wide receivers, tight ends, offensive tackles, defensive tackles and defensive ends.
