Kyler Murray: What Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said about QB ahead of 2019 NFL Draft


That is the view of Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

The coach made the comments after having held the first day of Arizona’s voluntary training camp.

The Cardinals hold the No 1 overall pick in the upcoming draft and many have tipped them to take Murray with their first selection.

However, the organisation have remained tight lipped on who they are going to pick in round one.

“We are still working through it,” Kingsbury said.

“It’s a process.

“I wouldn’t say the hay is in the barn.”

The 39-year-old coach confirmed the last time he spoke to Murray was for his interview.

“On his visit,” Kingsbury said.

“When he was in, I guess last week, or the week before.

“Just talked through the normal interview questions and process, that really it.

“I just think, when you do the research around Oklahoma, how people feel about him there and the impact he had following a high profile quarterback.

“They felt like he really handled himself well and left a good impression.”

Before taking the Cardinals job, Kingsbury was head coach of Texas Tech, the college football team of Texas Tech University, and he admitted he had worked hard to try and get Murray to come play for his team during his spell there.

When pressed about how close the former Oklahoma quarterback was to coming to Texas Tech, he said: “I don’t know how close he was, but I worked really hard at it. 

“He’s a tremendous talent.”

Kingsbury believes Murray will be an NFL quarterback, but as for the Cardinals taking him, we’ll have to wait until Thursday night in Nashville, Tennessee to find out.

“He is going to be an NFL quarterback,” Kingsbury added.

“There is always a steep learning curve for those young guys. 

“We’ll see how the draft goes for him.”
