The 2019 NFL Draft concluded about two months ago. The stories that linger from that event continue to surround first overall selection Kyler Murray. From his height to his play style, all eyes are on the former Heisman winner going into the 2019 NFL season. Recently, the Arizona Cardinals quarterback showed once against why he was picked first overall.
It is no secret that Murray is a fast quarterback. His game film speaks for itself in that department. But, many have wondered just how fast the Oklahoma alumni is. Let it be known that Murray did not participate in the NFL Combine 40-yard dash. But after a video of Murray facing off against his rookie teammate Andy Isabella in a footrace surfaced on Tuesday, the spectators finally got a glimpse of the quarterback’s true speed.

It appears that quarterback Kyler Murray and wide receiver Andy Isabella are neck and neck in the video. Considering that Isabella ran a 4.31 40-yard dash at the 2019 NFL Combine, Kyler is showing off some serious speed.
This speed and athleticism is exactly why Murray separated his himself from other quarterback prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft.
At the University of Oklahoma, Murray threw 260 completions for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns during the 2018 season. In addition, the dual threat scrambler rushed for 1002 yards. He also led the Big 12 in passing completion percentage, proving himself as more than just a accomplished runner.
With his achievements, Murray led his team to the college football playoffs and finished as a Heisman winner. Now, the quarterback heads into the 2019 NFL season as one of the most highly anticipated player to watch.
