NFL Notes: Antonio Brown, Kyler Murray, Chargers

Antonio Brown

  • 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.

Kyler Murray

Matt Miller of B/R spoke with an area scout, who said that Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray will be a “tough study” if he declares for the 2019 draft.

“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.
