Representative of many teams, including the Cardinals, were in attendance for the Pro Day on the Oklahoma campus. The Oklahoma quarterback, who is now my No. 2-ranked QB prospect and No. 9-ranked prospect overall, participated in throwing drills but did not run the 40-yard dash. That might not seem totally atypical until you consider that Murray didn't do any speed and agility tests - the broad jump, vertical jump, 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle, three-cone drill, 60-yard shuttle and bench press - at last month's NFL Scouting Combine, either.
Here's what we learned from Murray's workout.
Murray stood on his combine measurement of 5-foot-10; he weighed 205 pounds, which was two pounds lighter than his combine weight.
Murray's rapid release and accuracy on deep balls down the seam hitting receivers in stride, firing the ball on out-routes along the sideline and throws right on the money on short and intermediate throws could only help his stock in April's NFL Draft.
"I felt awesome leaving the combine, every meeting I had went well", he said. For the most part every National Football League major media Big Board the past month listed Ohio State's linebacker Nick Bosa (Opened at 5-4 odds) as the top selection in the upcoming draft. "It was a great experience". The Giants on hand in Oklahoma will also take a look at Cody Ford, one of the top offensive-line prospects in the draft.
"You get a perception in your mind about what somebody's going to be like, but when you see it in person it was a very, very strong performance", Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said.
"I'd like to get out there to run, but I don't think it's that necessary for me", said Murray, who joined Clemson's Deshaun Watson (2015) as the only FBS quarterback ever to record 4,000 passing and 1,000 rushing yards in the same season. "I think the film kinda speaks for itself".
"Quarterbacks come in all shapes and sizes", said Shurmur.
