WR - Catch radius

Postby Blackout » Thu Oct 06, 2016 2:40 pm

I've always heard about "catch radius" but never understood what it means.

What's the definition ? Who's got the best one ? Is it more important that being great route runner or having big hands or run 4.4 ?

Curious of your answers guys !

I mean, surely there is a clearly defined "catch radius" for each player, something like Arm length+hand size+vertical leap?

But usually when people are talking about it, they are referring to a player's knack for catching tough throws, plus his athletiscm & wingspan, plus his soft hands. In this way, OBJ has a better catch radius than a bigger guy with better wingspan, like DGB. Larry Fitzgerald, though surely not as athletic as some youngsters like Kevin White or Chris Moore, has a superior catch radius because his insanely elite hands and his awareness make up for anything lacking in the vertical leap category
