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.

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

  • Saideep Katragadda (Feb 19, 2019)

    Being a Redskins fan, I very much approve.

  • Derric Kennemer (Feb 17, 2019)

    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.

  • Mo Salah (Jan 10, 2019)

    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 😂😂😂

  • Jordan Davis (Jan 10, 2019)

    Good thing nobody actually takes Stephen A seriously enough to think he’s right

  • Austin Seidel (Jan 20, 2019)

    "I hate to bring up the elephant in the room, but no one will say it so I will. I don't think he will get drafted No. 1 overall because he is black." -Stephen A

  • Morbid Elm (Jan 20, 2019)

    googleluvscawk he’s 5’11 you dumbass

  • ChangeHumanity (Jan 10, 2019)

    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.

  • thalegacy6 (Mar 6, 2019)

    I like Josh Rosen for my Cardinals, to be honest though he can't see over the line either, those guys are huge.

  • Lil B The Based God (Mar 6, 2019)

    ChangeHumanity you’re right it is! And he has shorter arms than them and weighs less his combine weight is him bloating up to look good wait till the season starts lol I’m 16 I’m the same height or taller than kyler murray best of luck to him

  • dom kennedy (Jan 10, 2019)

    +dom kennedy I'm from NC but since 08 maybe 09 he's been my favorite rapper period.

  • Josh Jennings (Jan 10, 2019)

    Josh Rosen had a sneaky good season?Max. Did you sniff a can of paint before you spoke today?55.2% 2,278 yards 11 TD's 14 Int's 66.7 rating That's not sneaky good. That's loudly bad.

  • Fire Dolphin (Feb 25, 2019)

    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.

  • fly man (Feb 14, 2019)

    They need to trade for more picks and OL and pass rusher

  • Pablo Barrera (Jan 10, 2019)

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

  • Francisco Gonzalez (Jan 11, 2019)

    That was what I was thinking!!!! To me he should go play baseball

  • Arshdeep Singh (Jan 10, 2019)

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

  • Maurice Weathington (Mar 3, 2019)

    He should play soccer ⚽. 🤷🏽‍♂️ He'd make more money that baseball and football. Soccer is worldwide.

  • Saul Razo (Feb 14, 2019)

    Alejandro Sanchez baseball is more fun than football

  • zaying Hui (Jan 11, 2019)

    Don’t measure a man by the size of his stature, but by the size of the heart he plays with

  • Sam Gardner (Jan 23, 2019)

    Hearts nice, until you can’t throw the ball over a 6’6” DT

  • Paul Allen (Jan 17, 2019)

    That man Kha’len knows ... Not gunna dog Kylers heart, cause he got it for sure, But NFL is a big boys league, cmon nowOne hit, one goooood hit & Murray’s outNo question
