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.

    Steven A dont know shit about football. I played a little ball in college. More important than his size are the pieces around him and can they use what he does well to full benefit. Also he was short a long time before now and I think it hasnt been a problem. You idiots who never took a snap, dont know how to line up, dont say anything cause you dont know ...Stephen A, Max, and Mr. Cowboys Cheerleader. Well you can say something but you will be wrong because you dont know the game. Ive watched pilots fly planes, want me in the cockpit?

    I agree in drafting a qb every year. QB can set your franchise back for years. Were still trying to recover after Marino. And we completely bombed after not signing drew breeze.
