Summary

Kyler Murray was the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and now all the pressure will be on him as the Cardinals showed confidence and excitement in the selection as they traded away second year, 2018 starter Josh Rosen. At just 5-10, Murray will have his size be the topic of conversation throughout his career but one thing is for certain that new Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury hand picked him to lead a high flying offense in Arizona that will be nothing short of exciting. in his last season at Oklahoma, Murray played in 14 games and totalled 54 touchdowns with 42 passing and 12 rushing. He rushed the ball 140 times for 1,001 yards which are numbers that you rarely see from a quarterback at the next level but at the same time it creates plenty of excitement and anticipation at what Murray can bring to the Cardinals offense.
