On Saturday afternoon, former Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray’s height was the topic of conversation once again.
After the reigning Heisman Trophy-winner measured over 5-foot-10 at the NFL combine, a few analysts suggested he actually stands below that figure – despite the official measurement.
He denied teams a chance to check his height again at Oklahoma’s pro day, leading to further speculation.
Despite concerns about his height, the Arizona Cardinals made Murray the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL draft.
Earlier this week, a photo of NFL rookies made the rounds on social media.
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.
Regardless, after the photo hit social media, fans and analysts alike once again questioned whether or not Murray is actually above the 5-foot-10 figure he measured at the combine.
His height won’t matter if he can play at the professional level the way he did at Oklahoma.
We’ll have to wait and see if he can.
