Kyler Murray’s height is an issue, as he’s listed at 5-foot-10.

That’s not the biggest concern. 

Several scouts said the most interesting measurement will be Murray’s throwing hand. 


“There’s not a quarterback in the NFL that has a smaller hand than like a 9 — a 9-inch hand, the span from the thumb to the pinkie,” an NFC executive said.They say [Murray’s] could be really small, like 8 5/8 or 8 7/8. The difference (from other short QBs) would be like Russell Wilson’s is [10 1/4]. Drew Brees is like a 10 1/4.”

“He’s got a good arm for a guy that size,” an NFC scout said. “You do see him at times not be able to spin it. You see it come out pretty good, but if you’re looking at the college ball and counting revolutions on the actual stripes, it doesn’t look like there’s a ton of velocity just buzzing off his hand.” 

Murray is the only QB in this group who has not declared his intention to participate in Saturday’s throwing session at the combine; teams are expecting he’ll wait for his pro day.

Sometimes measurements won’t dictate how good a QB can be, but small hands is the one thing you do have to look at, and possibly worry about.
