Murray throws at his pro day, meets with Giants

14 March 2019

Murray confirmed that he met with the Giants immediately following the pro day. That might not seem totally atypical until you consider that Murray didn't do any speed and agility tests - the broad jump, vertical jump, 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle, three-cone drill, 60-yard shuttle and bench press - at last month's NFL Scouting Combine, either.

"I felt wonderful leaving the combine, every meeting I had went well", he said. "I didn't think I was going to have anything except two receivers". A quarterback with a chance of being the No. 1 overall pick. However, at Murray's pro day on Wednesday, Arizona head coach Kliff Kingsbury was not in attendance.

That is the biggest reason why Murray could give Oklahoma the No. 1 overall pick for the second straight year, following Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield, who also won the Heisman with the Sooners. I'd love to get out there and run, but it's just not as necessary.

In his first interview since those remarks, Murray declined to address Casserly's comments directly, before saying, "I don't think I would've done what I did [last season] if I didn't understand what defense were doing". Murray said he has individual meetings scheduled with "a couple" National Football League teams.

Now the Giants have extra draft picks they can use to move up and down the board in Round 1.

Scouts were very pleased with Murray's performance on Wednesday afternoon. Didn't have any - at least to my face, nobody was negative. "How many 6-5 quarterbacks have been drafted throughout the years that can't play dead?" He weighed in at 205 pounds on Wednesday. "It was a great experience".
