According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Heisman victor measured in at just over 5-foot-10 and was weighed in at 207 pounds, both of which are solid figures for him. Murray's hand size is 9.5 inches.
New Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores likes what he has seen on the field from Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray. Meaning Murray was not only small, but also slight.
Murray's height will be officially measured at the combine. Theoretically, it would mean he'd be more equipped to withstand the pounding he'll obviously have to face in the NFL.
So it's settled. That's it. Murray, who by some was considered closer to 5-9 before his Combine measurement, now has a chance to succeed as a passer in the NFL.
While Flores' comment was not a ringing endorsement, the Dolphins will surely conduct a thorough assessment on Murray, who is considered one of the best available quarterbacks in the draft, which will be held from April 25-27 in Nashville, Tenn. Both quarterbacks have a chance to land in the top 10 with teams like the Giants (No. 6) and Jaguars (No. 7) holding high draft picks and potentially looking to add a young quarterback. And with Murray reportedly passing on the opportunity to throw at the combine, those simple numbers alone - 5-10 and 1/8, and 207 lbs - could significantly boost his stock among 2019 QB prospects.
Kyler Murray was always going to be the biggest story of the National Football League scouting combine. Murray is often compared to Wilson because of the size and the background in baseball.
