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 😂😂😂
