Heading into the NFL Combine last week, it was known that QB prospect Kyler Murray would not be participating in any on-field drill. So besides his measurement, Murray was going to have to impress teams with his interview skills.
According to NFL analyst Charley Casserly, that did not happen.
On Tuesday, Casserly, a former General Manager with the Texans and Redskins, gave his thoughts on how Murray did and it's safe to say he was not impressed.
In further comments on the matter to NFL Network's Up to the Minute, Casserly stated, "In the interviews, I talked to more than one team ---- more than two teams, I'll leave it at that ---- I got exactly the same story. They were not impressed with his leadership skills or potential for the interview. They weren't impressed with his study habits, and I can't give you the quotes but they're pretty bad."
Casserly did explain that you can't, "decide on a player's future for 15 minutes," but continued to harp on the fact that teams were very underwhelmed with how Murray performed in the setting.
Murray's struggles during the interview process probably don't come as a total shock. Just a few weeks ago during the Super Bowl Media week, Murray went on the Dan Patrick Show and gave an awkward performance.
Casserly touched on Murray's interview skills in his comments, saying, "One thing that stuck out to me: this guy was never trained for the interview. Whoever trained him did a poor job; guys do get trained for interviews now."
As Casserly mentioned, Murray won't solely be judged on his interviews. But, it seems as though the quarterback's performance at the combine may have left some teams disappointed.
