Kyler Murray is 'too small' to be No. 1 pick in NFL draft - Stephen A. Smith | First Take

  • Опубликовано: 10 янв 2019
  • Stephen A. Smith of First Take says the Arizona Cardinals should not take Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft because the 5-10 QB is "so short." Max Kellerman says Murray is more athletic than other draft prospects including Ohio State Buckeyes QB Dwayne Haskins, but remains unconvinced that he will be a better NFL quarterback.

    I think his height should be irrelevant, considering if he 6.0 he would probably go number 1. I feel for the QB who go number 1 to teams with no supporting cast of course there going to bust. Baker only did so well because the Browns is the idea team for a rookie QB.

    I don’t get why you would choose his size over his speed he is a good football player and I have grown to be a OU fan so I honestly will love if he chooses baseball or football because I have grown up on both. But he needs to learn size doesn’t matter

  • Cody G

    Kyler is an undersized quarterback who’s going to get crushed in the nfl. He weighs 185 on a good day and is 5’8. Yes their are exceptions to the great quarterbacks list based on size but don’t mistake anomaly’s for normality’s. The facts show that the bigger quarterbacks last longer and are better quarterbacks. Kyler was an amazing college qb but many of his skills will not translate to the nfl like many think. He is a 4th round guy but this hype is why he will be drafted in the first round. He played under Lincoln Riley and his stats may be better than a lot of quarterbacks but he is not the prospect that teams should be looking for.

  • Quinn Murray

    What I don’t understand is why there is such a big rush to grab quarterbacks in the draft. If anything, Will Grier is the Baker Mayfield of this draft, but because he didn’t win the Heisman he’s gonna be a 2-3 round pick. When you’re as bad as the Cardinals, Raiders, Giants, why waste your time drafting quarterbacks that will not turn you into a playoff contender in your first year, fill your biggest roster holes, and then wait to find your guy in the 2nd round or wait another year to draft one in the 1st

    Listen, even if he is 5'9, but I believe he's 5'10 as the A's stated, and Wiki has him at 5'11. Either way, he's electrifying, he can make big plays and spark a team. He could also see him growing more, I believe in Murray.

    I wouldn’t take Murray #1 this year if I were the Cardinals. They have other holes that are more important to fill. Give Rosen one more year to develop, then draft a top QB the following year with a much better QB draft class, if Rosen doesn’t progress enough next season. I’d rather take Tua, Jake Fromm or Justin Herbert.

    I love how people bring up Wilson and Brees as evidence that Murray will have guaranteed success. You do realize your using 2 success stories out of the countless number of failed undersized/talented QB’s trying to make the NFL. It’s also worth noting that Brees/Wilson are small Quarterbacks in the NFL, Kyler Murray is in a tier of his own when talking about undersized NFL QB’s.

    People say he's not tall enough, completely neglecting the success of Baker Mayfield, Drew Brees and Russell Wilson. They also say he's not big enough, neglecting the fact that you pretty much can't hit quarterbacks anymore. Kyler has all the talent necessary to succeed in the NFL.

    Cardinals need to trade down and take some offensive line talent this draft. The team who I think needs a kyler Murray is the dolphins. I think as a whole they are a good team and need a great QB. Also when are these media people going to learn that size does not matter for the QB position anymore

And he didn't even start against Pittsburgh, or the Saints.
