3. Kyler Murray – QB

Many Arizona diehards, including yours truly, had doubts about whether quarterback Kyler Murray could produce at the professional level. There was legitimate concern about the first-overall selection’s lack of size (5-foot-10, 207 pounds), and there were many who believed that defensive end Nick Bosa should’ve been chosen instead.

Murray has proven a legion of his critics wrong by what he has accomplished during his first two NFL campaigns. The Heisman Trophy winner was voted Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2019, and he followed that up with a Pro Bowl nomination last fall.

The accolades that Murray has received are well-deserved, but even the 24-year-old passer knows that winning is king. Breaking a postseason drought that has lasted for five seasons is the next step in the process for the new face of the Cardinals organization.
