New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton is a big fan of quarterback Kyler Murray.
During the combine Friday, Payton said Murray’s film is “too good” during an appearance on the NFL Network.

It’s just the latest sign that things are going well for Murray at the combine. He measured in way bigger than people expect, exceeding 5’10” and now he’s got a Super Bowl winning coach singing his praises. (RELATED: Kyler Murray Measures In At Over 5’10” At The Combine)
He’s also not the first coach to do so. Jon Gruden has also let it be known that he thinks the Oklahoma Heisman winner is a star.

In case you’re wondering, Payton is 100 percent correct about Murray’s film. It’s borderline pornographic for football fans the way Murray slices and dices up opposing defenses.
If you haven’t seen him do it before, I highly suggest you watch the video below.
I know Murray has tons of doubters out there because he doesn’t look or play like the prototypical gunslinger in the NFL.
It doesn’t matter. We know he can play and we know he can win. It’s generally a really good sign when guys like Gruden and Payton are in your corner.
