He’ll have the smallest hands for a first round pick since 2008. However, he wasn’t in low spirits about the whole thing.

He tweeted, “Considering retirement after I was informed the football will be slipping out of my tiny hands. Please keep me in your thoughts.”

This is the perfect reaction from Burrow. You know what matters when it comes to his draft stock? The results we’ve seen on the field.

Joe Burrow can absolutely sling it, and that’s the reason LSU won the national title this past season.

Anybody who thinks Burrow’s hand size will impact his draft stock is an idiot. The Bengals will still do everything they can to take him.

Short of Burrow boycotting Cincy, he’s still going to be the first overall pick. That’s the reality of the situation.

Also, this tweet from “Always Sunny” was absolutely outstanding.
