北京pk10彩票官网 www.bjn98.com After Oklahoma quarterback prospect Kyler Murray was the talk of the NFL combine, some criticism of the 2018 Heisman Trophy winner emerged. Despite the flashy stats and the wins, he was supposedly not a good leader and does not process offenses well.
That led to Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley defending Murray, calling him a "tremendous leader."
Another has come to Murray's defense. This time it is longtime NFL analyst Gil Brandt.
He had this to say on social media:
About this Kyler Murray situation: 1) Only 1 team put him in front of white board. 2) The questions about leadership, study habits run counter to my experience w/ Kyler, who I've known since he was a HS soph. Have known his dad for 30 years. Honestly, it all sounds fabricated.

Having known Murray since he was in high school, Brandt says the rumors of being a poor leader and having poor study habits go against his own experience with him.
If it is true only one team asked him to do some work on a whiteboard, then comments about his ability to comprehend offenses would be unfounded.
All of this suggests the rumors might be coming from a team trying to devalue Murray in an attempt to have him fall a bit in the draft so that team can acquire him.
That would be par for the course this time of year with a top prospect.
