Tom Coughlin is not going to sign off on drafting Kyler Murray ..at QB. And they should have learned their lesson with Matt Jones about qbs they want to be Wrs

Yeah Bo freakin' Jackson was drafted in the 7th round.

Teams don't like to waste draft picks and 7th round is a flier on an a Heisman winner.


He was drafted first and refused to sign.

If a player doesn't sign with a team by the following years draft they are eligible to go back into the draft pool and can be drafted by any other team

Cool. So list the last 5’9” QB drafted in the first round.

Are we sure he's 5'9? I've seen him listed at 5'10 and 5'11, but not 5'9.

Most people are listed an inch or so taller than what they are.

When you look at him you certainly don’t see 5’11

re: A's expect Kyler Murray to enter NFL draft
I honestly haven't watched much of him. I also can't really tell an inch or two difference from watching players on the field.

I was just wondering because I didn't see that he was listed anywhere under 5'10.

re: A's expect Kyler Murray to enter NFL draft
I'm sticking with 5'9" 1/2.

Hell, Drew Brees is listed at 6'0". We all know that is made up

Anything below 5’10 and I don’t think he has a shot at a first round selection


Wilson is atleast 5’10, I’d say probably closer to 5’11 and he slide to the third.

Wilson was measured at 5'10 and 5/8ths at the combine.

Would he have been a first round pick if he was 6'? I doubt it.

I think he would’ve had a good shot. Only 3 QBs went in the first and they went early. I think someone would’ve easily taken a shot at Wilson

If you look at all the pre draft write up, the only thing negative they had to talk about Wilson was his size.

Russell Wilson's scouting notes are pretty funny to read.

I just don't recall hearing much hype around Wilson during that draft. I could be "misremembering" though.

I pulled up one a second ago and they were like “he’s extremely accurate, can run like the wind, comes from a pro style offense and knows a lot about playing QB, he’s a good kid......but he’s 5’11 so PASS”

That was the Andrew luck/RGIII draft so it was hard to have much hype outside of those two but I remember people saying he’d be a first rounder if he were taller.

Doesn’t do him any harm to enter the draft. Doesn’t mean he’s actually going to go play in the NFL


how pissed are you if your team burns a high pick on him though....make a decision now buddy and choose now.

BB or FB?

re: A's expect Kyler Murray to enter NFL draft
Yeah, I just read up on some of his draft profiles and articles about him prior to the draft. Seems stupid that he was projected as a late round pick just because he was 1 inch shorter than other successful QBs, Brees for example. It's basically, "he has the arm strength and accuracy of a top tier QB, but he's 1 inch shorter than we're used to, he might get drafted late"

I think if the teams at the top of the draft are interested, they'll ask him for a decision before they draft him.

Wouldn’t be mad if the Saints grabbed him if he slides into 3rd or 4th

But it’s pretty unlikely he falls that far

re: A's expect Kyler Murray to enter NFL draft
It’s pretty wild I think there was always some BS floating around about his “love for football” since he kept trying to play baseball and that he “quit” at NC State because they wouldn’t let him play baseball.


In hindsight it’s so wild that many teams passed on him compared to other QBs that get drafted in the 1-2 round every year
