Even without working out at the Scouting Combine, Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray dominated the weekend and shines in this 2-Round 2019 NFL Mock Draft
Over the past weekend, we got a much closer look at the majority of the players who will be entering the NFL by way of the 2019 NFL Draft. The annual Scouting Combine took place in Indianapolis and all the big decision makers in the football world were present to see the incoming class of rookies participate in the most grueling job interview process they will ever partake in.
As with everything the league touches, this event has turned into a huge spectacle. No longer do fans just wait and see the results on an ESPN ticker, but instead, they watch live and give instant reactions ‚— which also makes instant stars out of many of the players who show off their insane athleticism.
This weekend, the biggest star had to be Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf. After missing the majority of his final season with a neck injury, Metcalf apparently moved into a gym and did nothing but work out 24 hours a day leading up to the combine. He impressed in everything he did which included running a 4.33 in the 40-yard dash as well as push out 27 reps in the bench press. He even earned a new nickname as Daniel Jeremiah called him a “human Batman suit.”
Another big name was Kyler Murray — who dominated discussions all weekend even though he didn’t work out. The Oklahoma product didn’t throw but still seems like he climbed way up draft boards as the Arizona Cardinals may be in love.
With all the future stars of the NFL done working out, we take another look at how things could play out in April with this two-round 2019 NFL Mock Draft.
