Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

A five-star recruit from Allen, Texas, Murray first chose Texas A&M, where his dad played quarterback, but transferred to Oklahoma after one season of limited playing time. After sitting out a year, he backed up Baker Mayfield during a Heisman Trophy-winning season in 2017. After Mayfield went No. 1 in the NFL draft, Murray gave the Sooners an encore by winning the trophy himself in 2018. He threw for 4,361 yards, 42 touchdowns and seven interceptions and rushed for 1,001 yards and 12 touchdowns.

ANALYSIS

An electric athlete, Murray is a terror as a runner and passer, and he does everything lightning quick. He has active, bouncy feet and a snappy, tight release, allowing him to set and throw from a variety of platforms and angles extremely swiftly. His arm is very strong, but he also has a great feel for touch and is usually very accurate. His ability to create with his legs -- to run or to throw -- is exceedingly rare, and he didn't use it as a crutch in college.

Murray is undersized (5-foot-10, 207 pounds), creating concerns about durability and field vision. He is a beat slow to identify open receivers at times, which may always be an issue to some extent. He benefited from a highly schemed offense and tremendous weapons at Oklahoma and wasn't often asked to make full-field reads. His pocket movement is inconsistent, and he is loose with the ball while scrambling, but these are things you might have to live with for such a gifted off-schedule playmaker.
