The Arizona Cardinals drafted quarterback Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury gets his man.

Kingsbury has been recruiting Murray since he was in high school. Every time Kingsbury has been a head coach, he has had a mobile quarterback and now he has it with Murray.

In addition, Murray became the first person ever to be drafted in the first-round of the NFL and MLB Draft.

The Cardinals will now likely deal Josh Rosen. He was the No. 10 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Murray has spent three seasons over two teams in college football. He began his career with the Texas A&M Aggies, before transferring to the Oklahoma Sooners.

Murray has gone 260 of 377 for 4,361 yards in 14 games, as a one-year starter at the school. He also had 42 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

This past season, he became the second straight player to win the Heisman Trophy for the Sooners. Baker Mayfield — who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft — also won the Heisman Trophy in 2017.

As a college football player, he has gone 350 of 519 for 5,406 yards in 29 games. He had 50 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

Besides winning the Heisman Trophy, Murray also won the Davey O’Brien Award in 2018. He also was the Big 12 and Associated Press Player of the Year.

He was a first-team All-American and a first-team All-Big 12 selection in 2018.
