High-profile programs across the country are hosting their annual pro days, but no event of this nature is as notable as Wednesday’s showcase in Norman. Above all, scouts, front office executives and media alike will be in town to check out form Oklahoma Sooners QB Kyler Murray, who didn’t participate in any of the on-field testing at the NFL Combine. It’s easy to see why it was a shrewd move on the part of the Heisman Trophy winner, as all eyes will be on him as he throws, runs and shows the decision-makers everything they want to see — and in a comfortable environment, to boot.
None other than our very own Bob Stoops is in attendance today to watch the Kyler Murray show, and I would assume to check out the other talent on the field. He can be seen below sitting beside current Oklahoma coach, Lincoln Riley.

Update: Since we originally posted this article, we’ve learned that XFL Seattle Head Coach, Jim Zorn is also attending Oklahoma’s Pro Day. He can be seen here working with Kyler Murray. It’s interesting to note that it was the NFL that posted this Tweet. Nice to see some XFL coaches getting some air time, whether it was mentioned or not.
