    Arizona trades away Rosen and selects Murray #1 overall you heard it here first folks.

    I mean, his offensive line at OU was 6-4 and 6-5 across the board. Is the thought NFL offensive lines are comprised of 7-footers?

    is he a pocket passer, or somebody who benefits from rolling out and scrambling?

    Did you watch OU play this year? He made tons of throws from the pocket.

    Granted, OU's offensive line was better than almost everyone they played and he won't have that luxury in the NFL no matter who drafts him, but the idea that he's too short to spot receivers is simply false.

    kyler murray is an incredible athlete that does amazing stuff on the football field

    you are severely underrating Deion Sanders' athleticism

    These can both be true.

    Throwing a football is a skill, not athleticism. Aaron Rodgers may have the best arm of all time and nobody is saying he's a great athlete.

    Athleticism is speed, agility, quickness, and strength while factoring in size. Murray is very good at those things. Once in a generation? No.

    Not terrible by any means. Better than the avg Joe. He's not an off the charts athlete though. He's not in the same stratosphere with a guy like Tyreek Hill, Julio, etc.

    Mike Vick would have been so much better if he played in the modern NFL. Offenses around the league have realized the value of mobility at qb and adapted to it. I don't think people really knew how to get the most out of Vick's skillset in the early 2000's.

    Yeah, but he is still a fantastic athlete. Being "athletic" just isn't about your twitchy-ness, being able to throw on the run, avoid pressure and being smooth are all parts of being an athlete as well.

    MLB would have to approve that contract, and I don't see how it could. That's opening an enormous loophole that goes against the entire premise of the slot bonus system. It would be the equivalent of a team signing Ohtani last year, and then giving him a contract extension in spring training that paid him more than what was allowed in the signing bonus. No way MLB would have allowed that.

    Also, if Boras is in that meeting, I don't see him pushing for that because that makes him look bad.

    Also, I feel stupid for taking a report from a guy at a Dallas TV station that is very likely complete bullshit this seriously. In the Twitter era, there is no group in sports media that is dead wrong on things more often than local TV people.
