Kyler Murray

Quarterback, Arizona Cardinals

Kyler Murray was the most-talked about collegiate football player. As Quarterback for the Oklahoma Sooners, Kyler won the 2018 Heisman Trophy and was named the 2018 Associated Press College Football Player of the Year. Following his Heisman-Trophy winning season, Kyler declared his intentions to enter the 2019 NFL Draft and forego a promising career in another sport–baseball–despite also being drafted into the MLB by the Oakland Athletics.


In April 2019, Kyler became the first-ever Asian American No. 1 draft pick in the history of the NFL joining the Arizona Cardinals. At the NFL Honors on February 1, Murray won the AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award for his performance during his rookie season.
