There's one certainty about Kyler Murray's near future plans: They don't involve baseball.
Now that that drama is over, Murray is projected to be the No. 1 overall pick in next month's NFL draft, according to ESPN football analyst Mel Kiper Jr.
That pick, of course, is owned by the Arizona Cardinals, with coach Kliff Kingsbury leading the way. And while we all know he's a big Murray fan, there's even more evidence to support just how much he loves the Heisman Trophy winner.
Cardinals’ HC Kliff Kingsbury on what he likes about Kyler Murray: “I mean, I guess it's more what don't you like? When you watch him play, I mean he can run it, he can throw it, he's a competitor....He's one of the better dual threat players to ever play.”— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 26, 2019
I think we're all looking for someone to talk about us that way.
But Kliff's right. Murray not is only a dual-sport player -- he can kind of do it all. And despite his lack of height constantly being brought up, the Oklahoma quarterback looks like a sure thing in the first round.
The No. 2 pick belongs to the 49ers, so this could be good news for them. If the Cards indeed pick Kyler No. 1, it'll create fewer questions for the 49ers -- and they can stick to the original plan, which, at the moment, is looking promising for Nick Bosa.
Another "for sure" thing is Kingsbury knowing the responsibilities that come with having the No. 1 pick.
"I think everything's on the table," Kingsbury said. "When you have that first pick, you've gotta turn over every stone and look at every scenario that's out there, and so we're definitely doing that."
