Kyler Murray didn’t run at Oklahoma’s Pro Day but that won’t change anything. If scouts and GM’s want to know about his speed then there’s plenty of footage just like this out there.
Wednesday was about X’s and O’s and throwing the football. By all accounts Oklahoma’s seventh Heisman Trophy winner excelled in those categories.
According to George Stoia, Murray finished the day 64/70 on his throws, with one drop and five over/under throws. In comparison, Baker Mayfield was 62/70 throwing at last year’s Pro Day.
Not only did Murray produce a combine performance equal to, or better than, last year’s top overall draft pick, he did it in front of a record Pro Day attendance for the University of Oklahoma.
One notable absence from Oklahoma’s Pro Day was the Arizona Cardinals, who have the top overall pick in next month’s draft, but don’t look too much into that. Kliff Kingsbury already knows all he needs to about Murray. He’s seen Murray first hand and knows the difficulties of scheming against him. There was nothing new the Cards would have learned by being in attendance.
