Kyler Murray Scouting Report     

What I Like:

Arm Accuracy

Kyler Murray shows an excellent ability to place this ball where only the receiver can make a play on it. Displays an above average ability to throw with anticipation and throw the receiver open.

 

What I Dislike:

Pocket Poise

Kyler Murray displays average pocket poise, especially on this 3rd and long play. Must show more awareness in the pocket to succeed at the next level, especially for someone with his pocket escapability.

 

Acceleration

Kyler Murray displays a stellar ability to escape the pocket and run for extra yardage. Shows above average ability to read the field and pick the right running lanes. On this play, Murray makes several great reads and shows excellent acceleration to run up the field for the touchdown.

 

Overall Breakdown

Kyler Murray displays excellent arm accuracy to place the football where only his receiver can make a play on it. Also shows excellent ability to throw a receiver open and anticipate the route. Has a stellar ability to escape the pocket and run for additional yards. Shows above average ability to read the field and find running lanes. Murray shows average pocket poise ability. Must improve his awareness inside the pocket and trust his instincts at the next level. May struggle to pickup complex defenses at the next level.

 

Draft Round Prediction

First-to-Second Round

Kyler Murray has an offer to play professional baseball for Oakland Athletics, which could influence his decision. I don’t believe that Murray will slip past the 15th pick, but he hasn’t announced that he will commit to the NFL. A team could use Kyler Murray much like the Baltimore Ravens have used Lamar Jackson.
