Arizona Cardinals: 4 individual award candidates
Kyler Murray: Most Valuable Player
Last but not least, Kyler Murray is poised to follow in the footsteps of Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson as a breakout star in year two. Both of the aforementioned young signal-callers won the MVP in their second season in the league.
Murray has an improved defense backing him up in 2020, but it is the shiny new toy on offense that moves the needle. Elite receiver De’Andre Hopkins will create a dangerous trio with elder statesmen Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk. Kenyan Drake will have a full training camp with the Arizona Cardinals after being traded to Arizona mid-season in 2019. Kyler has the chance to stamp his name as a top ten quarterback.
Kyler Murray is a dynamic dual-threat quarterback with a tantalizing arm. Living up to preseason hype is never easy, but the 2019 offensive rookie of the year has the requisite tools to lead this team to double-digit wins and division a title. If accomplished, Kyler Murray will be a leading candidate for the league’s Most Valuable Player award and rightfully so.
The Arizona Cardinals have rebuilt their image to match the current status of the NFL. The components are there for this team to demand league wide respect. There’s a storm brewing in the desert and it is an exciting one.
