He is capable of an impressive workout which could solidify the first overall selection with a return to his top athleticism. He is expected to test out well this weekend.
Kyler Murray Commits to NFL Combine Workout
Former Oklahoma QB Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray was included on the official list of invitees for the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine. Murray has already declared for the draft and will workout at the NFL Combine. He will most likely have to pick between the NFL and MLB where he was first-round pick of the Oakland Athletics. Murray wants to become a first-round pick in this year’s NFL draft and needs to convince NFL brass about his intensions to play football over baseball. The A’s have already made a big push to convince Murray to pick baseball over football and they hoped he still will attend spring training. The reporting date for spring training actually began last week before the NFL Combine. Murray will have to go through the intense training program to earn a #1 draft selection in April. It begins this week.
Two sport athletes have had minimal success historically with virtually none playing QB in the NFL. That has never proven successful for any prospect with QB ambitions and any delay on committing to one sport beyond this winter could actually hurt his career potential in either sport.
The NFL released the list of 338 players who will attend the NFL Scouting Combine which gets underway in Indianapolis on February 26th. The list includes extensive players from the Power Five Conferences with 261 of the 338 invitations going to prospects from those schools.
Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons and Colorado State wide receiver Preston Williams were not invited to participate in the athletic events after personal conduct rules infractions. Simmons is considered an early first round prospect while Williams is graded as solid early middle round player. The NFL rescinded an invitation to Jaylon Ferguson of Louisiana Tech after his involvement in prior criminal charges due to violent assault. His pro day will be heavily attended with him considered a legitimate 2nd day selection.
A few prospects have begun to announce if they can workout or if they have a limited workout and restricted to just the medical and IQ testing plus the critical interview process. Safety Deionte Thompson had wrist surgery recently and will not workout at combine or his pro day. Runner Bryce Love had ACL surgery in December 2018 and will not workout while OT Jawaan Taylor will rehab a leg injury and hopes to make the Florida Pro Day scheduled for March 27th. He is a rising prospect with an excellent skill set for the NFL game.
