FILE - In this April 25, 2019, file photo, Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray embraces NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after the Arizona Cardinals selected Murray in the first round at the NFL football draft in Nashville, Tenn. NFL vice president Troy Vincent has sent a letter to several prospects inviting them to participate “live” in the NFL draft in three weeks.
