FanSided 250: Kyler Murray ranks in top 20 sports figures
FanSided 250 for 2019 has been released and this year the Arizona Cardinals are represented with quarterback Kyler Murray
Ever since FanSided created the FanSided 250, one of the hottest fandoms out there, there hasn’t been much to cheer about if you are an Arizona Cardinals fan. However this season, despite the dismal 3-9-1 record, quarterback Kyler Murray has made the rankings.
Murray, the number 1 draft pick in the 2019 NFL Draft had been making waves for his play over the first 11 games of the season. The last 2 weeks for Murray haven’t been that spectacular but it is clear he has moved the bar up as far as the quarterback position goes in Arizona.
Through 13 games, Murray has 16 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. He only had 5 interceptions through the first 11 games.
Murray is ranked number 79 overall in the FanSided 250, 16th in sports figures. Of the 250 that made the rankings, the Cardinals quarterback is among 34 sports figures to make the list.
Of those 34 sports figures, Murray ranks 5th in NFL quarterbacks. He’s behind Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (1st in sports figures, 5th overall), New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (4th, 18th), Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield (11th, 62nd), and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (12th, 63rd).
There is still debate among even Cardinals fans whether they made the right choice in selecting Murray number 1 but clearly he has been captivating to watch. As we’ve talked in the past, next season should tell us a lot more about the future of the position in Arizona.
Murray is already among one of the most popular figures overall in Arizona. Everyone knows who he is. He has over 1 million followers on Twitter.
