Kyler Murray skips measurement, throws at pro day

Murray's weight, 207 pounds, also helped his cause as detractors going into the February 28 combine anxious about his thin build and ability to take hits from the quarterback position. Specifically, it opens up the possibility that NY can move up to pick the top quarterback on their draft board.

- Giants head coach Pat Shurmur and Bengals head coach Zac Taylor are at Murray's Pro Day.

"I felt awesome leaving the combine", he said. I just don't think it's necessary for me.

Still, the New York Giants (who now have the No. 6 pick) were quick to meet with the quarterback once he completed his workout. Oklahoma had a quarterback with questions. Didn't have any - at least to my face, nobody was negative.

But the height measurement's legitimacy?

With his combination of arm strength, speed and robust stature - he weighed in at 205 on Wednesday - Murray has drawn comparisons with Seattle's Russell Wilson and former Pro Bowl star Michael Vick. 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. "How many 6-5 quarterbacks have been drafted throughout the years that can't play dead?" "It was a great experience".

"He's athletically so far beyond anything in this game, and that league either, at that position, there's really honestly not any point", Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said of doing the drills.

Murray said he would have expected to run something in the 4.3-second range. I've never seen a guy get hit that like that and never complain to his O-line. "I think the film kinda speaks for itself".

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