Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray
The Cardinals took Murray with the 1st overall pick in the draft and then traded away last year’s first-round pick Josh Rosen, so this season is all on the rookie’s shoulders. New head coach Kliff Kingsbury picked Murray as the perfect quarterback to run his offense, putting all of his eggs in Murray’s basket.
Based on Rosen’s experience last season, Murray probably won’t have a great supporting cast around him, especially on the offensive line. It’s not easy succeeding as a rookie quarterback with a strong supporting cast, and it’ll be even more difficult for Murray. There will be immense pressure on him to both live up to the hype of the 1st overall pick and carry the Cardinals.
