Gil Brandt crushes Charley Casserly’s Kyler Murray rip job

Even the most scathing critique of Kyler Murray can’t seem to scare off the Cardinals from being reportedly set on taking him with the No. 1 pick. Possibly because it isn’t even true.

After longtime NFL general manager Charley Casserly ripped the Heisman-winning quarterback’s interviews with teams at the scouting combine — “These were worst comments I ever got on a high-rated quarterback and I’ve been doing this a long time … Leadership, not good. Study habits, not good. The board work, below not good. Not good at all in any of those areas, raising major concerns about what this guy is going to do.” — former NFL executive Gil Brandt came to Murray’s defense, questioning whether Casserly invented the assessments himself.

“About this Kyler Murray situation: 1) Only 1 team put him in front of white board. 2) The questions about leadership, study habits run counter to my experience w/ Kyler, who I’ve known since he was a HS soph,” Brandt, now an analyst for SiriusXM, tweeted. “Have known his dad for 30 years. Honestly, it all sounds fabricated.”

Casserly’s comments don’t look any better, given the conflict of interest created by his side job at EXOS, preparing college players for such interviews. Murray did not use its services.

As for the other controversy forever-swirling around Murray as an NFL prospect, Brandt said any reports of the diminutive quarterback’s height being inflated is also inaccurate.

“I don’t need an anonymous scout to tell me he was shorter than what was recorded,” Brandt said. “I have my own source: me. I was there in the room when he was measured and when the bar pushed all the way down on his head he was 5-10 1/8. This is all insane.”
