General manager Steve Keim and new head coach Kliff Kingsbury owned the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft, with Kyler Murray sitting there as a perfect fit for Kingbury’s offense. Even though the team invested a top-10 pick in Josh Rosen the year prior, Arizona did the smart thing by selecting Murray.
Fast forward two years. Murray is now a leading MVP candidate, while Rosen is on his fifth team in four seasons.
Murray’s growth has been impressive. He currently leads the league with a 75.2 completion percentage and is the game’s best downfield passer. Plus, his mobility makes him nearly impossible to bottle up when everything breaks down.
In Year 3, the 24-year-old quarterback staked his claim among the NFL’s elite.
