Kliff Kingsbury, Cardinals GM not attending Kyler Murray's 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

Kyler Murray's rise up draft boards culminated Wednesday with Oklahoma's pro day, during which he threw in front of roughly 75 National Football League executives, coaches and scouts. "It was fun to finally actually do something".

Murray is coming off a Heisman Trophy winning season in his first, and only year as the starter for the Sooners, and did not throw at the NFL Combine.

Representative of many teams, including the Cardinals, were in attendance for the Pro Day on the Oklahoma campus.

Not only did that contingent watch carefully as Murray threw, they also met with Murray during the bench press portion of the day and later held a 30-minute meeting with the quarterback that made him late for his press conference.

- Giants head coach Pat Shurmur and Bengals head coach Zac Taylor are at Murray's Pro Day. 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 previous year. According to Ian Rapoport and James Palmer, Cardinals general manager Steve Keim and coach Kliff Kingsbury won't be in Norman, Oklahoma.

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). He weighed in at 205 pounds on Wednesday.

Neymar In Trouble Over Champions League VAR Penalty Comments

"I felt incredible leaving the combine", he said. Didn't have any - at least to my face, nobody was negative. "It was a great experience".

NFL Network's Charley Casserly, a former executive with the Washington Redskins and Houston Texans, last month said Murray fared poorly during interviews at the NFL scouting combine. I just don't think it's necessary for me.

Murray deferred to his former Oklahoma teammates to discuss his leadership, which offensive lineman Cody Ford did. "I can recall against Texas he's getting hit a lot". But we knew we needed to get the job done as far as protecting him better, which I feel like we did.

"He's kind of on his way", Zorn said.

Though Riley and others in the program have noted Murray boasts sub-4.4 speed, Murray added he didn't want to risk injury before throwing. "I think I showed everybody I can do that".

Mayfield solidified his spot at No. 1 following Oklahoma's pro day past year.
