    The kid just seems very slight...……..

    He obviously put on some weight for the combine but that is not his playing weight...…….

    I would not pick him...…..

    I’d bet that it is his playing weight, or within 3-5 lbs. He seems to have the same frame as Russell Wilson

    Disagree. Go check out some comparison photos of both of them. Wilson was cutting weight prior to the combine when he came out to get more speed. Murray's frame is very, very slight.

    Murray positively put on weight for the combine, doubtful he will be able to keep it on. His frame is not there.

    I’m not saying he’s going to be a great QB or anything as good as Russell Wilson. My comment was that his frame looks as if it can hold 210 pounds, no problem. At 21, he’s not been able to really “hold weightl

    I was a fan of Mike. I liked him much better for our offense last year. I know I said that 1,000 times during the season, but he was the better RB for our offense last year. I expect him to have a decent NFL career. I think he could potentially be Mark Ingram.

    As long as he can avoid little nagging injuries thay cause his availability to be inconsistent I think he's going to be just fine. Could say that about a lot of backs but that'd include backs that won't make it even if they're consistently healthy, I don't think Mike falls into that category.

    According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, "many NFL sources" believe the Cardinals are targeting Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the top pick in April's draft.

    The rumor mill is firing on all cylinders this time of year, so we're taking this report with a grain of salt. With that said, this is obviously not the first time Murray has been linked to the Cardinals. Kliff Kingsbury famously asserted that he would draft Murray first overall if he had the chance, though that was before the Cardinals hired him as head coach. One source told Vacchiano that Murray "fits exactly what Kingsbury wants to do" while another said "it's a perfect match." Despite an underwhelming rookie year, it's still difficult to believe Arizona would throw in the towel so soon on 2018 first-rounder Josh Rosen. However, if the Cardinals do decide to shop Rosen, the quarterback-needy Giants would likely be one of his top suitors.

    Why would they go away from Rosen after just one season?

    Iowa TE Noah Fant ran the 40-yard dash in an unofficial 4.51 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine.
    Fant (6'4/249) is an out-and-out athletic freak. He was expected to destroy combine testing and is off to a hot start. For reference's sake, his 40-yard dash time would have been good for ninth-best among running backs (who went through the dash on Friday). He figures to kill his jumps and agility drills later on Saturday. The standout tight end is very much going to be in play for a first-round selection come April.

    Ole Miss WR D.K. Metcalf recorded 27 reps on the bench press at the NFL Scouting Combine.

    Metcalf (6'3/228) lifting more like an offensive lineman or a strong running back (Jalin Moore turned in 27 reps on Thursday) than a wide receiver. He has yet to even test in earnest beyond the bench, but already has turned heads with his physical prowess since arriving in Indianapolis. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport passed along on Thursday that Metcalf has just 1.6-percent body fat. He could threaten the 4.3's in the 40-yard dash when he runs this weekend. Just a physical freak.

    Oklahoma RB Rodney Anderson (knee) would not confirm that he will go through athletic testing in April.

    Anderson (6'0/224) turned in 25 reps on the bench press on Thursday, but will not be taking part in any other tests at the combine as he continues to rehab from a torn ACL sustained in September. While NFL.com's Tom Pelissero has reported that the OU back would roll through a pro day-style workout in April, Anderson is doing his best to muddy the waters, responding with a "maybe" when asked whether he would take part in some testing down the road and explaining to reporters that he is going to be "very conservative" in his approach to athletic work. None of this figures to sit well with NFL teams, who already have relatively little meat to evaluate when it comes to the oft-injured back. In ideal circumstances, Anderson might be a borderline Day 1 prospect. These are not ideal circumstances.
