Former NFL GM: Kyler Murray received 'worst comments' I ever heard about a high-rated QB

Kyler Murray says telling the A's he's committed to football 'was tough'

Kyler Murray doesn’t seem to have been received well at the NFL combine.

Former general manager Charley Casserly said Monday on the NFL Network the Oklahoma product received the “worst comments” he has ever heard about a highly-rated quarterback. 

Casserly said in part:

“(Murray) better hope (Kliff) Kingsbury takes him No. 1 because this was not good. These were the worst comments I ever got on a high-rated quarterback and I’ve been doing this a long time. … Leadership — not good. Study habits — not good. The board work — below not good. Not good at all in any of those areas, raising major concerns about what this guy is going to do. 

The Cardinals are rumored to favor drafting Murray first overall in the 2019 draft, despite having selected Josh Rosen last year.

Murray did not throw at the combine, but said he plans to at his pro day March 13. He threw for 4,361 yards and ran for 1,001 in 2018 for the Sooners, capping off the season as a Heisman Trophy winner.

Arizona coach Kliff Kingsbury is believed to be a fan of Murray, but news of his underwhelming interviews could hurt his draft stock elsewhere.
