Murray throws at his pro day, meets with Giants

Share

While Oklahoma's other pro hopefuls went through the typical pro day drills, Murray stayed out of everything until it was time to throw passes in the afternoon - about four hours later. The likely first-round pick participated in the full slate of drills after foregoing the NFL Combine, providing one last chance for teams to watch the Heisman Trophy victor in person.

Arizona now holds the top pick. However, the Patriots may be doing their due diligence on a player who might end up their opponent in 2019.

In the most anticipated pro day workout ahead of April's 2019 National Football League draft, potential No. 1 overall pick Kyler Murray impressed scouts on hand. This is an interesting development because there were many assuming the Cardinals would be taking Murray with the first pick, and many would believe that two high profile guys of the Cardinals would be in attendance.

If Keim and Kingsbury are indeed ready-set-go to select Murray as the overall No. 1 in May then one should expect a private workout between now and the end of April.

If they opted to do so, the Giants could package those picks to move up in the first round, but they are not expected to be heavy suitors for Murray, based on his size (he is a shade over 5-foot-10).

"I felt incredible leaving the combine", he said. "It was a great experience".

NFL Network analyst Charley Casserly recently characterized Murray's combine showing in a completely different light, controversially calling Murray's leadership, study habits and board work "not good". Murray declined to be measured again Wednesday, but weighed in at 205 pounds.
