Kyler Murray, the Oklahoma Sooners’ Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, appears to be trending in the right direction leading up to the 2019 NFL Draft. With draft season in full swing, there was a growing belief that Murray could find himself as the No. 1 overall pick by the Arizona Cardinals.
But in the immortal words of Lee Corso, “not so fast my friends.”
According to Charley Casserly of the NFL Network, Murray interviewed very poorly with teams in Indianapolis at the NFL Scouting Combine. Casserly bashed Murray’s leadership, study habits, and board work based on the information he heard.
“He better hope [Kliff] Kingsbury takes him No. 1 because this was not good,” Casserly said. “These were the worst comments I ever got on a high-rated quarterback and I’ve been doing this a long time. Leadership — not good. Study habits – not good. The board work — below not good.”
As an athlete, the worst thing you want is for teams to question your work ethic so we will have to wait and see whether this ultimately has an impact on where he lands this spring.
The 2019 NFL Draft will take place between April 25 and April 27 in Nashville, Tennessee. Nashville earned the honor of hosting the 84th annual player selection over cities Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas, and Cleveland/Canton.
