Kyler Murray overtakes Nick Bosa as favorite to be No. 1 pick in NFL Draft

Kyler Murray, NFL Draft, Nick Bosa

Kyler Murray has officially surpassed Nick Bosa to become the number one draft pick for the NFL, according to a new report.

Previously, Bosa was -200 and Murray was +400 to be the No. 1 overall pick. Now, Murray is -200 and Bosa is +150.

Overall, according to NBC Sports, this suggests that either sportsman can be considered a good investment for whatever team chooses to take them on.

“Murray has surged up draft boards over the last few months. Early in the 2018 college football season, he was a non-factor, as almost everyone assumed he would play baseball, not football, professionally. But as he continued to impress during a Heisman Trophy-winning season, it became an open question which sport he would play, and once Murray announced he would play football instead of baseball, he became a likely first-round pick. Now he’s viewed by many not just as a likely first-round pick, but as likely to go first overall.”

A former baseball player, Murray got his start in college football, where he played with the Aggies at Texas A&M. He was the 2014 Gatorade Football Player of the Year as a senior in high school, and 2018 Associated Press Player of the Year as a college senior.

If successfully drafted into the NFL, Murray would play in the quarterback position — the same position he played in both high school and college.
