Projections for when Kyler Murray will be picked in the NFL draft continue to fluctuate, but his college head coach believes he's a surefire top-five prospect.

"I will be shocked if five players get their name called on draft day before Kyler," Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley said to Peter King of NBC Sports.

Last year, Riley's quarterback Baker Mayfield was the No. 1 pick. Murray could follow Mayfield's lead, or at least become the first passer selected.

Riley also doesn't believe Murray's reported height of 5-10 and undersized frame will stand in his way.

"He's played quarterback most of his life, and he's always been one of the shorter ones, so to him, it's just football. Size doesn't matter," Riley said.
