Standing at the 20-yard line at the Everest Indoor Training Center on Wednesday, Jim Zorn was right in the middle of the action during the most anticipated part of the most anticipated Pro Day of the year - Kyler Murray's throwing exhibition Wednesday.

ESPN Insider Todd McShay has Murray going No. 1 overall to the Arizona Cardinals in his latest mock draft.
"I felt unbelievable leaving the combine", he said. For the most part every National Football League major media Big Board the past month listed Ohio State's linebacker Nick Bosa (Opened at 5-4 odds) as the top selection in the upcoming draft. Didn't have any - at least to my face, nobody was negative.
"You get a perception in your mind about what somebody's going to be like, but when you see it in person it was a very, very strong performance", Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said. "It was a great experience".
Murray said he would have expected to run something in the 4.3-second range. "I think the film kinda speaks for itself".
Mayfield solidified his spot at No. 1 following Oklahoma's pro day previous year.
