Cardinals QB Kyler Murray says ‘we can be really dangerous’ when talking about Kliff Kingsbury
Kyler Murray has officially been drafted by the Arizona Cardinals with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. He has been expected to be the selection throughout the majority of the draft process, but now that it is official, he was asked about teaming up with his new head coach, Kliff Kingsbury.
In a quote shared by Jake Trotter of ESPN, Murray stated that he feels the duo can be “really dangerous.”

Arizona will now look to trade last years first round pick, Josh Rosen. He has been rumored to be on the trade block for weeks and there are a few teams that have come forward with interest.
Murray, on the other hand, has been a player that Kingsbury has wanted for a long time. Awhile back, Kingsbury made the comment that he would draft Murray with the No. 1 overall pick if he had the chance. Well, that time has come and he followed through with his word.
Last season with the Oklahoma Sooners, Murray ended up completing 69 percent of his pass attempts for 4,361 yards, 42 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. He also racked up 1,001 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground. Those numbers show why he won the Heisman Trophy.
Needless to say, it will be interesting to see what Murray and Kingsbury can do together moving forward. Both men are fierce competitors and the Arizona offense should be extremely entertaining.
A new era has started for the Cardinals and Murray will be the face of the franchise. Hopefully, the Cardinals look back at this selection and are happy with their choice.
