Kyler Murray fuels height conspiracy by not measuring at Oklahoma’s pro day

first_imgWell, Murray had his Pro Day on Wednesday, and guess what? He didn’t measure for his height. He also didn’t run a 40-yard dash at his pro day or the Combine.SN’s MOCK DRAFT 3.0:Kyler Murray-to-Cardinals shuffles Round 1; 49ers, Jets benefitKyler Murray only weighs in at his pro day. No height measurement. Weighs in at 205.— Andrew Groover (@APGroover) March 13, 2019For context, Murray’s height was 5-10 1/8 at the Combine and he weighed in at 207 pounds.On one hand: Murray already had his measurements taken, so what does he gain by having them be taken again? On the other hand, though, it  a little weird for him to not just get his height measured a second time. It’s not like he has to have blood drawn. It’s a simple procedure. Why not just shut people up and have them take your measurement?Maybe Murray feels like his Combine measurements were such a big win that he didn’t want to risk a lower measurement. Your height does fluctuate throughout the day, and it’s at its best early in the morning.“The discs in your spine get compressed from being upright all day,” New York chiropractor Todd Sinett told Everyday Health. “As you sleep, your spine decompresses, and you regain the lost length.” There was a lot of talk about Kyler Murray’s height and weight leading in to the NFL Combine, but even after his official measurements were taken, there were some doubters out there.The most notable case was from an anonymous scout who told Dan Patrick, “I think that his height was inflated. Maybe it’s the tinfoil hat theory. I just don’t see it. If he refuses to measure at the pro day, that will be telling.” The Combine measurements are taken earlier in the day, and his pro day measurements were mid-afternoon. We’re not talking about a major difference in height, but Murray’s height has been so scrutinized that he may not want to deal with the headache of the press if the number comes in shorter than what he measured at his Combine.But at the same time, he’s opening himself up to stories like this that talk about why he’s not getting measured. It’s really a lose-lose situation. And at the end of the day, it doesn’t (or at least, it shouldn’t) matter if he’s 5-9 or 5-10. His play on the field should be what matters.This issue really won’t matter if he goes first overall to the Cardinals, like he’s projected, because all he has to do is impress Arizona enough to draft him. If another team has an issue with his height, who cares? He just needs one team to not worry about whether he’s tall enough to play quarterback.last_img read more

first_imgTo explain this unique amber piece, researchers have conjured up three scenarios. Perhaps resin dripped down from a forest next to a beach, catching first land critters and then seashells. Or a tsunami flooded low-lying trees, washing sea creatures into resin pools. Or, possibly, storm winds simply blew seashells into the forest. Regardless, scientists say, it’s a welcome surprise.

This is the first ammonite and one of the very first marine organisms ever found in amber; because the gemstone is fossilized tree resin, it traps mostly land organisms.The specimen (above) came to light when a collector in Shanghai, China, bought it for about $750 from a dealer who claimed it was a land snail. Under the x-rays of a computerized tomography scanner, though, the shell revealed the intricate internal chambers characteristic of ammonites.The ammonite’s precise type confirms the Burmese amber is from the Cretaceous period, as previous dating studies have argued. But the 3-centimeter-long piece of ancient resin is a veritable surf and turf of land and sea creatures, also preserving at least 40 other animals—mites, spiders, millipedes, cockroaches, beetles, flies, wasps, and marine gastropods, the researchers report today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
