Being placed under a microscope, Kyler Murray remains the most intriguing prospect of the 2019 NFL Draft class. The reigning Heisman winner recently measured 5 foot 10 and 1/8 inches before stepping on to the scale. Weighing in at 207 pounds, the greatest mystery surrounding the quarterback quickly dissipated. Completely committed a future of football, Murray threw a wrench into the system.
With the opportunity to impress numerous scouts under one roof, Murray mentioned that he will not participate in any drills or testing at the NFL Combine next week. This single statement translates to the signal caller forgoing the chance to impress decision makers with his arm strength and speed in comparison to other options available on all draft board. Instead of being pushed to the physical limit, the quarterback plans to complete interviews and medical examinations according to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL.com.
Adding to this: Kyler Murray has told teams he doesn’t plan to participate in any drills or testing at the combine. Is doing medical and interviews here. Plan is to work out at his pro day instead. Teams expected this. https://t.co/5J8MECenGN

That move leaves Murray with a single date on which scouts will gather to evaluate the measurable talent of the dual-sport athlete…March 13. Preparing to undergo the physical demands of the process leading up to the actual draft, there’s not much room for error.
