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

  • Published on:  1/10/2019
  • 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.✔ Subscribe to ESPN on YouTube:✔ Subscribe to ESPN FC on YouTube:✔ Subscribe to NBA on ESPN on YouTube:✔ Watch ESPN on YouTube TV: on Social Media:► Follow on Twitter:► Like on Facebook:► Follow on Instagram: ESPN on YouTube to get up-to-the-minute sports news coverage, scores, highlights and commentary for NFL, NHL, MLB, NBA, College Football, NCAA Basketball, soccer and more.

    Kyler Murray has said his exact measurements are 5’10 195. The Oakland A’s took his exact measurements... I’m gonna go with those over Stephen A Smiths eye test of what he look like in TV lol. Also funny how 1 second he’s 5’10 then he’s 5’9 then he’s 5’8 and next week he’ll be 5’7 😂😂😂

    @cortezmauricio1989 considering Wilson and Brees are less than 2 inches taller than him that isn't true. They are all closer in height together than they are to Andrew Luck or Tom Brady

    Redskins trading up from 15 to grab Murray and then him ditching football for baseball would be the most redskiniest thing they could do.

    Being a Redskins fan, I very much approve.

    He has already told the team that drafted him in the MLB , he's sticking with football, and gave back his signing bonous, and the remainder of his money.

    Drew Brees, Russell Wilson are both undersized and look at them. They are some of the top QBs in the NFL. Size doesn’t matter.

    @KobeFan12452 Rosen is on Dolphins now. Better franchise. He'll have a way better career then a Cardinal. Lmfao

    Sure the Cards were bad and there wasn't much support, but there is nothing sneaky good or exciting about those numbers - they are terrible and he still looked horrible.

    Imagine drafting him with a 1st Round Pick only for him to say “nah, I’ll stick to baseball”

  • Francisco Gonzalez 5 months ago

    If Kyle Murray is smart he would choose baseball over football.

  • Kobe Bryant 2 months ago

    I agree.. He must really love football...
