While many players will come away from this week's event remembering the grueling off-the-field interviews and medical evaluations, the news that comes from the media availabilities with coaches and general managers as well as the players' on-the-field workouts are the elements National Football League fans will have the most access to.

Murray won the Heisman Trophy, as his electric play accounted for 4,361 yards with 42 touchdowns while running for another 1,001 yards and 12 touchdowns last season.

So it's settled. That's it. Murray, who by some was considered closer to 5-9 before his Combine measurement, now has a chance to succeed as a passer in the NFL.

Kyler Murray's measurements were recorded Thursday at the 2019 NFL Combine in Indianapolis. If Murray has spent the past five or six weeks bulking up, that would play in his favor at the combine and in completing scouting reports on a complex prospect, because teams want to see a thicker player than Murray was at OU.

Murray or Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins will likely be the first two quarterbacks taken in the draft, which also features players like Duke's Daniel Jones, Missouri's Drew Lock, West Virginia's Will Grier, Auburn's Jarred Stidham, NC State's Ryan Finley and Washington State's Cardner Minshew.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday morning that Murray told scouts and personnel of several NFL teams that he does not plan to throw at the combine on Saturday. Thanks to the success of quarterbacks like Wilson and Baker Mayfield there is a good chance Murray will be selected in the first round.

Murray, 21, is a player who has been heavily associated with the Jags with the draft nearing due to their obvious need at quarterback.
