Top QB prospect Murray to meet with Cardinals, open to Giants

Kyler Murray is planning on meeting with the Arizona Cardinals during the NFL Combine, though the top quarterback prospect said he would "love" to be in New York with the Giants.

Murray – who turned down the Oakland Athletics and the MLB for a career in the NFL – led the Oklahoma Sooners to a 12-2 record and threw for 4,361 yards in 2018.

The 21-year-old also ran for 1,001 yards and capped off his final collegiate season as a Heisman Trophy winner.

Arizona have the number one pick in the draft and there is speculation the Cardinals could select Murray, despite already boasting Josh Rosen.

Murray will sit out the NFL combine drills but as he prepares to meet with the Cardinals, he told reporters: "Coach [Kliff] Kingsbury, I know the type of offense he runs. He recruited me out of high school and I have a great relationship with him.

"If I were to play under him, I think it'd be a great deal. But I don't get to pick players. I just show up and do what I'm supposed to do. I'd obviously be very comfortable knowing how he operates that offense, what we look for, and how to operate everything ... me and him being together would be nice."

Murray was also asked about playing for the Giants, who have an aging Eli Manning occupying the QB role.

"OBJ [Odell Beckham Jr], Shep [Sterling Shepard], Evan [Engram], Saquon [Barkley], I think me in that system, with those guys, could be very dangerous," Murray said.

"At the same time I don't get to choose where I go. If that was the case, I'd love to be in that situation and would love to be in New York."
