This is an interesting development because there were many assuming the Cardinals would be taking Murray with the first pick, and many would believe that two high profile guys of the Cardinals would be in attendance.

Zorn, the one-time head coach of the Washington Redskins, has spent much of the last month working with Murray to prepare him for this moment.

Through an array of routes to multiple receivers, Murray was crisp, completing 61 of his 67 workout passes, which included one drop.

There is no doubt that Murray was a special quarterback during his time at Oklahoma, and after measuring in over 5-foot-10, he is the favorite to now be the No. 1 overall selection in April.

In the most anticipated pro day workout ahead of April's 2019 National Football League draft, potential No. 1 overall pick Kyler Murray impressed scouts on hand.

"I felt incredible leaving the combine, every meeting I had went well", he said. NY will be taking a hard look at quarterback this draft, with Eli Manning being 38 years old and in the final year of his contract. He weighed in at 205 pounds on Wednesday. "It was a great experience".

Murray deferred to his former Oklahoma teammates to discuss his leadership, which offensive lineman Cody Ford did.

"You get a perception in your mind about what somebody's going to be like, but when you see it in person it was a very, very strong performance", Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said.

Murray said he would have expected to run something in the 4.3-second range. "I think the film kind of speaks for itself".

"Quarterbacks come in all shapes and sizes", said Shurmur. Murray is hoping he just did the same. "I think I showed everybody I can do that".
