The Oklahoma Pro Day workouts found 31 of the 32 National Football League front offices in attendance.

But it became apparent rather quickly that if the gathered masses wanted to see Murray do anything other than stand around, it would be a while.

The New England Patriots sent two scouts to the Oklahoma Sooners pro day to observe the proceedings, including quarterback Kyler Murray's throwing routine.

Zorn, the one-time head coach of the Washington Redskins, has spent much of the last month working with Murray to prepare him for this moment.

Here's what we learned from Murray's workout.

Murray's rapid release and accuracy on deep balls down the seam hitting receivers in stride, firing the ball on out-routes along the sideline and throws right on the money on short and intermediate throws could only help his stock in April's NFL Draft.

"I felt unbelievable leaving the combine", he said.

In his first interview since those remarks, Murray declined to address Casserly's comments directly, before saying, "I don't think I would've done what I did [last season] if I didn't understand what defense were doing". "How many 6-5 quarterbacks have been drafted throughout the years that can't play dead?"

"For him, it was just a matter of, it didn't make sense to run and do all those things", Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said. He weighed in at 205 pounds on Wednesday.

Murray said he would have expected to run something in the 4.3-second range. Didn't have any - at least to my face, nobody was negative. "I think the film kind of speaks for itself. I had a great experience".
