    Again, if Lamar Jackson can be the 32nd pick as a quarterback, there's no reason Kyler Murray can't be the 32nd pick (if not higher) as a quarterback imo.

    The pace, for starters. The amount of QB runs, for another. The fact Murray is playing that style of football in a league with atrocious defenses, as well.

    We can agree to disagree about the offense. I don't care about this.

    he honestly has zero idea. he’s argued himself into such a corner that he doesn’t know what his actual stance is at this point

    Ok. Bc I would say that someone who can be a top 10 pick in one sport and win the heisman in another sport is a pretty sick athlete

    Speed is a better sign of athleticism than throwing a ball.

    Not many more things.

    Murray is probably one of the best athletes in college right now. Just hard to say that with complete certainty. You have basketball players that could be all-American WR’s if they played. Shit, maybe all-American swimmers if they swam. But Murray has proven it.

    Nobody is saying he's not a great athlete. He obviously is. Just not the best athlete since Bo Jackson, which dallasdawg claimed.

    and your only reasoning against my claim is that “he’s short”

    he’s literally the only person in history to win a heisman trophy and get drafted in the top 10 in baseball. he very well could go top 10 in the nfl draft. that is ELITE in TWO major sports. what more does he need to do?

    You're sticking by this? Kyler Murray is a better athlete than Lebron James? That's what you want to stick with?

    would OU be talked about in a similar way as Bama if they kept Venables and gave him the free reign (relatively) he gets at clemson. I think (ceterus paribus, which is obviously retarded) last 2 years couldve been OU championships if they even had a somewhat decent defense to pair with that offense.

    FARRELL'S TAKE
    “I’d take Murray as the first quarterback despite the questions about his size because of the way things are going in the NFL. Size doesn’t matter nearly as much as it used to at the NFL level and it’s not a great quarterback class overall so Murray would be worth the risk.

    "I like Haskins, but I’m not sold on his long-term projection as an NFL star where Murray is worth the boom-or-bust gamble. He’s so quick and elusive that he can avoid the pass rush well at the next level and he’s already shown he can throw from the pocket. He’s a better pure passer than Haskins and his athleticism makes him hard to pass up.

    "Quarterbacks like

    Aaron Rodgers
    , Drew Brees and now Mayfield have excelled without great size and while Murray may be much smaller than they are, he has potential star power.”

    since were going down that rabbit hole anyways how do you define great athlete. It seems like some people talk about it in an Al Davis sense, so Height, Weight, Speed, Agility kinda way. Id at least want to argue that fluidity, accuracy of the movement and coordination are parts of it as well, as does endurance probably. I think you can say that for instance the top end of tennis consists of very well rounded athletes.

    he sounded awful on the podcast, no better seeing it in video

    it's really unbelievable, whoever his team is, supported him going to radio row SB week, where you do nothing but interviews, and he sounds like he had zero coaching on what to say for the most obvious questions he was going to get this week.

    Look, just come up with the absolute most boring, stock, Russell-Wilson-esque answers you can imagine, and it's 1000x better than the bullshit that he just did. He looks like a dick

    (that said, the idiots saying this is going to hurt his draft stock are laughable. If he declares for the NFL, he is still getting drafted really high, that interview is nothing on that front, he just looks terrible)
