Arizona Cardinals made the Heisman Trophy Profitable Oklahoma Quarterback Kyler Murray No. 1 total take in the 2019 NFL project on Thursday night in Nashville.
Murray's choice was historic in a number of ways, becoming the first person ever to have been the first round in either of the baseball and NFL league matches.
Murray promised to pay off his $ 4.66 million ($ 6.64 million) bonus to A when he announced in February that he would commit to the full move of football forward.
"I'm proud to be different, I do different things," Murray said of the red carpet before the project, referring to the expected two-sport event.
At 5 foot-10, Murray is the first defender under 6 feet tall, to be picked up in the first round by Johnny Mansiel in 2014.
Murray threw for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns with seven interceptions last year while leading Oklahoma in the soccer match. He also rushed to 1001 yards and 12 touchdowns.
After former teammate and Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield last came first in Cleveland Brauns last year, Murray's selection was the first time since 1968-69, when the top back-to-back race came from the same school.
"I'm talking to Bake a lot," Murray said of Mayfield.
"He's a close friend of mine. Getting advice from him was definitely helpful.
