- Mike Freeman reports that he has spoken with NFL teams who have said the potential trade market for Steelers WR Antonio Brown is “huge. “
- According to Freeman, teams interested in Brown have told him that they believe once he in their program, they would be able to control him.
“Going off talent, yes, he has what it takes to play in the NFL, but I have heard he’s super small. Listed at 5’10”, which means he might be 5’8″. There aren’t many players that small,” the scout said. “He’s going to be a tough study.”
A separate scout was more optimistic about Murray’s ability to translate to the NFL game.
“I’ve gone back and forth. I’m kind of stubborn and old-school, so I’ve said hell no for the last two months. But in today’s game—in a wide-open offense—he has a chance,” the scout tells Miller. “I mean, he’s been the best player by far at every level he’s played at, so I can’t be surprised if he’s a solid quarterback. His tape is hard to evaluate because it’s so many 10-second plays holding the ball. He never sets his feet in the pocket and he’s tiny. But in all honesty, I kind of think Baltimore would’ve been better with him than Lamar [Jackson] this past Sunday.”
Miller says he polled over 10 NFL scouts and executives about Murray and the feedback is that he would be a lock as a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.
