Summary

The 2019 first overall pick looked poised in his rookie season, playing in all 16 games and finishing as the QB9 at the end of the season. Murray finished his rookie season with 3,722 passing yards, 20 passing touchdowns, and was second in QB rushing yards only behind Lamar Jackson with 544 yards. Heading into year two of the Kliff Kingsbury system is only going to lead to better numbers for Murray and the fact that they added DeAndre Hopkins is showing that they are building the entire offense around Murray. With his newly added stud WR along with an already steady cast of wide receiver talent, Murray can improve on his passing numbers and will also have plenty of opportunity to put up some big numbers running the ball.
