Quarterback Kyler Murray, a top prospect for April’s draft, doesn’t plan to throw at the NFL combine this week.
According to NFL Network, Murray told scouts and personnel people of several NFL teams of his intentions, though there is one caveat. The Oklahoma product could change his mind after seeing some of his competitors throw, but right now the plan is for Murray “not to do much.”

Despite Murray’s eye-popping skill set and strong season with the Sooners, there are some concerns about his measurements. He measured at 5-9 7/8 by Oklahoma staffers last fall, which is a bit short of the NFL’s traditional quarterback template.
