There’s no guarantee that Kyler Murray will be a full participant at the NFL draft combine in March.

According to Clarence Hill Jr. Monday, the Oklahoma Sooners Heisman winner will be at the combine, but “has not decided” if he will go through all the drills.

Before everybody panics, it’s not incredibly unusual for quarterbacks to not throw at the combine. It happens from time to time.

Guys like working with their own teammates at their pro days overthrowing to new guys at the combine.

Keep in mind, they’re trying to make the best impression possible in front of NFL executives. Having a bad situation with new receivers could be a disaster. (RELATED: Heisman Winner Kyler Murray Invited To Spring Training With The Oakland A’s)

Why risk it if you’re Murray?

Another part from the Hill Jr. interview that is fascinating is the fact the dual-threat quarterback claims his 40 time is faster than 4.3 seconds.

If that’s true, then he probably has the fast 40 in the entire draft.

I really can’t wait to see what Murray does in the NFL. I know there are plenty of critics, but I think he is going to tear it up.

Nothing is more fun than watching a great dual-threat quarterback slice up a defense.
