Kyler Murray’s numbers are in and our lengthy nationwide nightmare is over. There have been some whispers that he may very well be as brief as 5’eight″ however we are able to now verify that Kyler Murray is checking in at 5’10” (and 1/eight″), and his hand measurement, as his camp suspected, is at 9 half of″.
If Murray is a primary spherical choose, as looks like a certainty at this level, he could be the shortest quarterback drafted within the first spherical since 1953, when Ted Marchibroda (additionally 5’10”) was chosen fifth general (and have become extra well-known as a coach). However, it’s not as brief because it may have been. Russell Wilson is listed at 5’11”, Seneca Wallace was a reliable backup at 5’11”, and Doug Flutie and Pat Haden had success within the NFL. So he’s no less than in a variety the place quarterbacks have had some success, and along with his different abilities and in a system that performs to his strengths, could make an affect.
