Kyler Murray's moment of truth: He's taller than we thought

Based on that "Trends for you" information, Murray's height was not only the most important news break in sports Thursday morning, but it was a bigger topic than the abrupt end of president Donald Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to discuss denuclearization.

Murray won the Heisman Trophy, as his electric play accounted for 4,361 yards with 42 touchdowns while running for another 1,001 yards and 12 touchdowns last season.

Murray had a very good weigh-in at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine, checking in at 5-foot-10 1/8, 207 pounds, with 9.5-inch hands.

Kyler Murray can't do anything about his height, but it appears he's working hard on erasing fears about his ability to withstand hits from National Football League defenders. Theoretically, it would mean he'd be more equipped to withstand the pounding he'll obviously have to face in the NFL. "There were plenty of debates on whether or now Murray would be over or under 5' 10".

Gruden said he met with Murray and Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins Wednesday.

Murray, 21, is a player who has been heavily associated with the Jags with the draft nearing due to their obvious need at quarterback.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday morning that Murray told scouts and personnel of several NFL teams that he does not plan to throw at the combine on Saturday. The Seahawks quarterback fell to the third round in the 2012 draft in large part because of his size.
