It’s Kyler Murray time as the NFL Draft approaches and it appears as if the Arizona Cardinals will take him with the No. 1 overall pick. Within the span of a year, Murray has gone from first-round MLB pick of the Oakland A’s with a $4.66 million signing to College football Heisman winner to ex-baseball player turned star of the draft process.
The 5-10 QB didn’t do any drills during the Draft combine, but he did impress scouts with this throwing ability at Oklahoma's recent pro day on Wednesday.
According to usatoday.com, “He completed 61 of 67 passes, including a couple of drops, while throwing a variety of routes. During a portion of the scripted workout, which was coordinated by former NFL quarterback and coach Jim Zorn, who’s been working with Murray in recent weeks, Murray simulated taking snaps from under center."
Afterward, an NFL assistant coach described the workout to USA TODAY Sports as “impressive,” saying Murray showed superior accuracy and arm strength. It’s among the things Murray wanted to prove.
“I pride myself in being a passer,” Murray said. “Hopefully I showed I can throw the ball.”
Murray did some interviews with several teams, including the NY Giants after he finished throwing.
