Murray doesn’t run, but shines as a passer at Pro Day

Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray is smaller than 5-foot-10. Is that too small for Giants general manager Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur

The team can find out a lot more in a private workout with Murray than they will be able to find out a pro day that is put on by the university to make him look as good as they can. "I thought every meeting I had went well". "It was fun to finally actually do something".

Last year Browns General Manager John Dorsey didn't attend the Sooners pro day and still took Baker Mayfield with the first overall pick. But skeptics wondered if those numbers would hold up - and if Murray could show off his speed - when Oklahoma's pro day came around. "How many 6-5 quarterbacks have been drafted throughout the years that can't play dead?" The Browns acquired All-Pro wide receiver Odell Beckham and Pro Bowl pass rusher Olivier Vernon in exchange for offensive guard Kevin Zeitler, safety Jabrill Peppers, the 2019 first-round pick and a 2019 third-round pick that was acquired from the New England Patriots in a deal a year ago. Murray declined to be measured again Wednesday, but weighed in at 205 pounds.

"I felt wonderful leaving the combine", he said. "At least to my face, no one was negative. It was a great experience". Well, we won't know.


In front of Giants head coach Pat Shurmur, offensive coordinator Mike Shula, and representatives from all 32 National Football League teams, Murray flashed plenty of arm-strength and accuracy on Wednesday in Norman, Okla.

"For him, it was just a matter of, it didn't make sense to run and do all those things", Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said.

Murray said he would have expected to run something in the 4.3-second range. "I didn't want to pull anything before I got the chance to throw". "I think the film kind of speaks for itself". "I think I showed everybody I can do that".
