Kyler Murray skips measurement, throws at pro day

For the first time since 2008, the Browns won't enter Day 1 of the NFL Draft with a first-round pick.

It forced evaluators to eschew using his height as a red flag, a reason not to consider him a top pick.

"No question about it".

NFL Network's Charley Casserly, a former executive with the Washington Redskins and Houston Texans, last month said Murray fared poorly during interviews at the NFL scouting combine. You go travel to any pro day anywhere you want to, you're not going to see another throwing performance like that.

"I felt incredible leaving the combine", he said.

"Thought it went well", Murray said. I had fun with it.

Murray stood on his combine measurement of 5-foot-10; he weighed 205 pounds, which was two pounds lighter than his combine weight. "It was a great experience".

Size appears to be less of a concern than in the past, thanks to success of shorter players such as Russell Wilson and Drew Brees. NY will be taking a hard look at quarterback this draft, with Eli Manning being 38 years old and in the final year of his contract.
