Winners and losers in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft

Sports Media Group Logo By Doug Farrar of Sports Media Group | Slide 2 of 11: There's no better situation for a young NFL quarterback than to be under the tutelage of a head coach and offensive play-designer who is all in on his professional future. Murray, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, absolutely has that in Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who has admired Murray's work since he had to try and defend Murray at Texas Tech. Kingsbury will have transitional issues in taking his schemes to the NFL, but he has the ideal quarterback in Murray, who does a lot more than your typical Air Raid guy. Just as Kingsbury helped to develop Patrick Mahomes back in college, he'll be able to use Murray's vision, arm talent, anticipation, and peerless athleticism to make him the rightful epicenter of his offense.
