The New York Giants‘ contingent that includes coach Pat Shurmur and senior vice president of player personnel Chris Mara that is headed to Oklahoma for Kyler Murray‘s Pro Day also plans to spend time with the quarterback on Wednesday night after his workout, a source tells ESPN’s Jordan Ranaan.
The Giants admittedly are looking hard at quarterbacks with Eli Manning 38 years old and on the final year of his contract.
New York, which owns the No. 6 overall pick and now the No. 17 overall pick after the trade of Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns, likely will have to trade up if interested in Murray, who the buzz around the combine suggested will be the No. 1 overall pick.
Murray, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, will not measure again at his pro day, an Oklahoma spokesman said. He was 5 feet, 10⅛ inches tall and weighed 207 pounds at the scouting combine in Indianapolis. He did not participate in any drills at the combine, however.
There has been widespread speculation that the Arizona Cardinals plan to select Murray with the No. 1 overall pick.
