As the draft continues to creep up, now just two weeks away, the Redskins continue to bring in multiple quarterbacks for pre-draft visits. Northwestern's Clayton Thorson visited on Wednesday, and Duke's Daniel Jones is set to visit Thursday.

But the quarterback coming to visit Washington next week may be the most important one of them all.

That's when former University of Oklahoma quarterback and 2018 Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray is scheduled to come to Washington.

In his lone season as a starter for the Sooners, Murray threw for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns while leading Oklahoma to a College Football Playoff berth. He additionally ran for over 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground.

Murray is truly a threat both with his arm and his legs, which is why many NFL teams are intrigued by the 5-10 signal caller.

Even if the Redskins fall in love with Murray during the visit, they will most likely have a difficult time being able to select him. Washington will likely have to trade up in the draft in order to take Murray.

 

Many mock drafts, including NBC Sports Washington's Ben Standig's, have the Arizona Cardinals selecting Murray with the No. 1 overall pick. 

The Redskins are doing their due diligence on all of the top quarterback prospects, which is smart considering there are several ways the draft could shake out.
