At the very least, they're going to pretend like that's the case. Kyle saw enough of the coaching life of his father - the early-morning departures, the late arrivals back home - to realize, "I don't know if I love the coaching style".

That being said, Johnson's skill set opens the door for the Lions to add just about any kind of back they think may fit in new offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell's scheme. "I can go inside, take an out, take it to the house. It'd be fun (to play for Kingsbury)". Mamula blew up the 1995 combine with a 4.58-second 40-yard dash, a 38.5-inch vertical leap, a 10-foot-5-inch broad jump and 28 reps of 225 pounds at the bench press. He completed 69 percent of his passes for 42 touchdowns and seven picks while rushing for 1,001 more yards and 12 additional touchdowns. However, Love will get his chance to display his on-field skills today as the 2019 National Football League scouting combine moves into high gear with the first day of on-field workouts.

Those two numbers were enough to dispel worries that his build wasn't suitable for taking hits in the NFL.


"Obviously, the size is always the question, but we've seen guys that have had success in the league that are not necessarily the prototypes as far as when it comes to height", Elway said.

One of his interviews in Indianapolis will be with the Cardinals, Murray confirmed. The week-long event at Lucas Oil Stadium features the best college prospects from across the country and has four components - an on-field workout, medical testing, player interviews and psychological testing. "Every time we've moved, we've been each other's only friends to start, so we've learned to be really close with each other".

So let's dive into the murky waters of hot takes and address the Kyler Murray criticisms head on in an attempt to help put them to bed.
