Kyler Murray’s draft inventory went by way of the roof when he confirmed up on the NFL Mix roughly the scale of Russell Wilson. By measuring in at over 5-foot-10, the Heisman Trophy winner assuaged numerous fears about his peak. However, as tends to occur, the blessed occasion wasn’t with out its share of conspiracy theorists.
Every week in the past, Dan Patrick shared the opinion of 1 former NFL scout who believes Murray’s peak had been “inflated.”
“I feel that his peak was inflated,” the scout instructed Patrick. “Perhaps it’s the tinfoil hat concept. I simply don’t see it. If he refuses to measure on the professional day, that can be telling.”
Nicely, Murray’s professional day is right here and, guess what, no peak measurement.
Kyler Murray solely weighs in at his professional day. No peak measurement. Weighs in at 205.

Odds are, this entire factor is actually silly. However it’s a bit odd Murray wouldn’t simply do it once more. Peak is a reasonably static factor. Positive, one is a bit taller within the morning and shorter at evening, but when the measurements are taken on the similar time of day, one would assume they’d yield comparable outcomes.
And nobody is anticipating Murray to get any taller in two weeks. There’s no disgrace in coming in with the identical quantity.
Tinfoil-hat promoting time. This one ain’t going away anytime quickly.
