Don’t get the Murray character concerns either - so he gave a poor interview on TV or two...it really doesn’t matter (and he was clearly being poorly advised at the time of the I think pro football talk interview? When they were clearly trying to make sure the baseball team didn’t want all his money back). There is nothing but praise and good things about him from his time with Oklahoma, and also, a baseball squad had no issue with his character to take him in the top 10 of their sporting draft last year....

Height - for me not an issue, he played with great huge hunking O-linemen at Oklahoma (quite a few of which will be drafted), and Murray is great at finding throwing lanes like a Drew Brees is.

His frame is a little concerning to me, he is a little slight - but he’s also only 21. Hardly finished developing, and because of the baseball stuff he wouldn’t have been trying to bulk up recently anyways.

I think what’s been overlooked throughout the process with Murray is just what an incredible thrower of the football he is. This isn’t a Lamar Jackson who clearly has accuracy and progression issues, this is a guy who sits in the pocket and can make all the throws, but if it’s clearly nothing on or not open, he can hit a home run on the ground too. For me he’s a better passer than Mayfield was this time last year

For me, you evaluate the player not some stats based on things from decades ago about smaller QBs. This is a different league to the 1990’s, heck even five-ten years ago, so I really do struggle to see what impact comparing to players who played them has
