Kyler Murray is the consensus first pick in the 2019 NFL draft. That carries the expectation of being the biggest difference maker among all rookies and a sure Week 1 starter. Murray was also the ninth-overall selection in the 2018 MLB draft. He declared for the NFL draft after winning the 2018 Heisman Trophy Award.
Murray was a three-year starter at Allen High School in Texas with a student population of 5,000 students. He played home games in a $60 million stadium that houses 18,000 spectators. His team won three straight state championships and 43 games in a row. He never lost a game in high school and was the 2014 Gatorade Football Player of the Year.
He was a five-star recruit that signed with the Texas A&M Aggies to play both football and baseball. Murray started his freshman year as the back-up quarterback occasionally used in the wildcat formation. He won the starting job later in the year and in his first start, he threw for 223 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 156 yards and a second score. He joined Cam Newton as the only SEC quarterbacks to ever gain over 100 yards rushing and passing, with both a rushing and passing touchdown in a game.
At the end of that year, he announced he was transferring to Oklahoma and per NCAA transfer rules, he had to sit out the 2016 season. He was the backup for Baker Mayfield in 2017 before taking over last year.
