Who Has The Best Hands In The NFL Ever?

In this blog post, we’ll take a look at some of the best hands in the NFL ever. From Jerry Rice to Odell Beckham Jr., we’ll cover some of the greatest catches ever made.


Tom Brady

Tom Brady is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, and he has some of the best hands in the NFL. He has great accuracy, and he can make all the throws. He is also a very good scrambler.

Peyton Manning

Peyton Manning is widely considered to have the best hands in the NFL. He has incredible accuracy and touch, and can make all the throws. He’s also been very durable, playing in every game for 16 seasons.

Drew Brees

Drew Brees has the best hands in the NFL ever. In his 18 seasons, Brees has only had one season where he threw for more interceptions than touchdowns. That was his rookie year. In his other 17 seasons, Brees has averaged 33 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions. That is an amazing 3:1 ratio. He is also the all-time leader in completion percentage and quarterback rating.

running backs

Emmitt Smith

Emmitt Smith was one of the greatest running backs of all time. He played for the Dallas Cowboys from 1990 to 2002, and is the NFL’s all-time leading rusher with 18,355 yards. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010.

But Smith was more than just a great runner. He also had some of the best hands of any running back in NFL history. In his career, he caught 515 passes for 3,838 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also had an incredible knack for catching the ball out of the backfield, which made him a dangerous weapon in the passing game.

Smith wasn’t just a great receiver out of the backfield, though. He was also an excellent pass blocker. In his career, he only gave up seven sacks and was named to the All-Pro team four times.

There are few players in NFL history who can match Smith’s all-around skills as a running back. He was one of the best ever at running the ball, catching it out of the backfield, and pass blocking. That’s why he’s widely considered to be one of the best running backs in NFL history, and it’s why he has the best hands of any running back ever.

Walter Payton


Payton was not only an incredible runner with the football, he also had great hands out of the backfield. He had 490 receptions for 4,538 yards and 15 touchdowns in his career.

Barry Sanders

Barry Sanders is widely considered one of the best running backs in NFL history, and it’s not hard to see why. In his 10 seasons with the Detroit Lions, Sanders racked up over 15,000 yards and 99 touchdowns, making him one of the most productive players of his generation.

But what made Sanders truly special was his incredible ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. In an era where running backs were often used as nothing more than glorified blockers, Sanders was a receiver first and foremost, hauling in 317 catches for over 2,900 yards and 11 touchdowns.

There have been other great receiving running backs since Sanders retired in 1998, but nobody has come close to matching his production. For that reason, he remains the gold standard for pass-catching running backs, and one of the best ever at his position.

wide receivers

Jerry Rice is known for having the best hands in NFL history. He was able to catch anything that was thrown his way and was a big reason why the San Francisco 49ers were so successful in the 1980s and 1990s. Other great receivers have included Randy Moss, Calvin Johnson, and DeAndre Hopkins.

Jerry Rice

Jerry Rice is widely considered to be the best wide receiver in NFL history. He holds numerous records, including the most career receptions, most career receiving yards, and most career touchdown catches. He was named to 13 Pro Bowls and was a First-Team All-Pro 10 times. He was also named the NFL MVP in 1987 and the Super Bowl MVP in 1989.

Randy Moss

Moss is considered one of the greatest wide receivers of all time, and he holds the NFL single-season record for touchdown receptions with 23, set in 2007. He is second on the NFL’s all-time regular season touchdown reception list behind Jerry Rice. In 2010, he was voted as the greatest receiver in NFL history by NFL Network’s The Top 100: Players of All-Time.
Moss played college football for Marshall University, and twice earned All-American honors. He was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 1998 NFL Draft. In his 14 seasons in the NFL, he played for three teams: the Vikings (1998–2004), Oakland Raiders (2005), New England Patriots (2007–2010), and San Francisco 49ers (2012). Throughout his NFL career, Moss amassed 982 receptions for 15,292 yards and 156 touchdowns, which are all rank second in league history behind Jerry Rice’s 1,549 receptions and 22,895 yards. He holds an NFL record 34 touchdowns catches in a single season as well as being tied with Antonio Brown and Jordan Reed for most consecutive games with one or more touchdown catches with six games. Moss was elected to eight Pro Bowls during his career.

Moss was traded to the Raiders before the 2005 season began. In Oakland, he caught 60 passes for 1,005 yards and eight touchdowns in his first season with quarterback Kerry Collins throwing to him. During a Monday Night Football game against the San Diego Chargers on December 5, 2005, Chargers assistant coach Fred Pagac called a timeout after Moss caught a touchdown pass so he could be booed by San Diego fans as he returned to the sidelines; however, television cameras did not show Pagac making this gesture.[17] The next week against Miami Dolphins on December 11 on Monday Night Football co- color analyst Dennis Miller made a joke about Pagac’s gesture by saying “Pagac probably just wanted Randy to get a little extra rest.”[18] After his short stint with Oakland that year he was traded back to New England for a fourth round draft pick before training camp even began

Terrell Owens

There is no denying that Terrell Owens is one of the best wide receivers to ever play the game of football. He has some of the best hands in the NFL, and he has the ability to make amazing catches look routine. In his career, Owens has 983 receptions for 14,122 yards and 153 touchdowns.

tight ends

He has more catches than any other tight end in NFL history but trails Rice by 247 receiving yards and 8 touchdown catches.

Rob Gronkowski
