As one of the premier powerhouses in college football, that happens every year. What is news is that the Giants are, apparently Patrick Omameh Jersey , very interested in the prospects working out in Norman Wednesday. While GM Dave Gettleman stayed behind at the Giants’ facilities, head coach Pat Shurmur and VP of Player Personnel Chris Mara were on hand to lead the Giants’ contingent.It was also revealed that the team's representatives would meet privately with Murray. Interestingly, the Arizona Cardinas’ brass — HC Kliff Kingsbury, GM Steve Keim, and owner Michael Bidwell — were not in attendance. The day started out with something of a win for Kyler Murray, who wasn't measured nor ran the 40, but he did weigh in at 205 pounds. Once his field workout started Womens Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey , Murray worked exclusively from a hypothetical pocket, executing three, five, and seven-step drops. He threw a complete route tree and was generally accurate and precise to all levels on all routes. He wasn’t perfect, and there were a few off-target or over-thrown balls, but Murray was largely efficient. On a few instances he navigated the hypothetical pocket, simulating avoiding pressure Phil McConkey Jersey , but never worked a scramble drill or roll-out. Murray’s camp clearly wanted to show the NFL his ability as a pocket passer.As usual, Murray’s baseball background showed up in his throwing. His footwork was clean and crisp, he was able to generate tremendous torque with little apparent effort, and the ball fairly leaped off his hand.The Giants’ contingent had a front-row view of Murray, with Pat Shurmur standing almost directly behind Murray for the duration, while other Giants’ representatives were just off to one side. What does this all mean? Certainly that the Giants have interest in the Oklahoma offensive linemen. How interested is Shurmur in Murray? At the NFL Scouting Combine he opened the door for the Giants drafting Murray, stating that quarterbacks “come in all shapes and sizes” , and pointed out that Murray had just five passes batted at the line of scrimmage — the same as Dwayne Haskins and fewer than much larger quarterbacks. There is speculation that the Giants could trade their second-round pick for Josh Rosen, but could the Giants package their first round selections to move up for Kyler Murray? We’ll find out eventually.
