Murray doesn't run, but shines as a passer at Pro Day

Oklahoma football quarterback Kyler Murray goes through passing drills at the Oklahoma NFL Pro Day in Norman Okla. Wednesday

The likely first-round pick participated in the full slate of drills after foregoing the NFL Combine, providing one last chance for teams to watch the Heisman Trophy victor in person. In short those watching this year's draft on the NFL Network expected to hear commissioner Roger Goodell or a special guest announce that the "Arizona Cardinals have selected Nick Bosa as the overall No. 1 pick". However, the Patriots may be doing their due diligence on a player who might end up their opponent in 2019.

For the first time since 2008, the Browns won't enter Day 1 of the NFL Draft with a first-round pick.

Representative of many teams, including the Cardinals, were in attendance for the Pro Day on the Oklahoma campus.

Here's what we learned from Murray's workout. "How many 6-5 quarterbacks have been drafted throughout the years that can't play dead?" According to Ian Rapoport and James Palmer, Cardinals general manager Steve Keim and coach Kliff Kingsbury won't be in Norman, Oklahoma.

"I felt incredible leaving the combine, every meeting I had went well", he said.

Oklahoma quarterback prospect Kyler Murray's height measurement at the NFL Draft Combine two weeks ago no doubt helped his draft stock. "I had a great experience". That might not seem totally atypical until you consider that Murray didn't do any speed and agility tests - the broad jump, vertical jump, 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle, three-cone drill, 60-yard shuttle and bench press - at last month's NFL Scouting Combine, either. Murray declined to be measured again Wednesday, but weighed in at 205 pounds.
