Earlier this week, a photo of Kyler Murray standing among a crowd of other NFL rookies went viral on social media.

The photo called into question - once again - whether or not Murray stands above 5-foot-10 like he measured at the NFL combine earlier this spring.

Murray was side-by-side with former Sooners wide receiver Marquise Brown - who is officially listed at 5-foot-9.

Brown appears to be the same height as, if not a little taller than, Murray in the photo. Of course, the angle of the photo could have something to do with the height disparity between the two players.

After the photo made its rounds on social media, Murray decided to end the debate by posting a photo of he and Brown standing next to one another in the weight room.

"Here you go dude. Lol stop reaching," Murray said on Twitter.

Clearly Murray has had enough of the height truthers out there who don't believe he stands above the 5-foot-10 mark.

Despite concerns about his height, the Arizona Cardinals made Murray the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

He'll get the start for the Cardinals when they open the season as they hope to move on from a dreadful 2018 season.
