Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray continues to prove that he is unlike any other prospect in recent memory. He stepped up to the white line against the speedy Andy Isabella, a former UMass wide receiver who ran a 4.31 second 40-yard dash at the 2019 NFL Combine that was tied for the second fastest time ever. And yet, Murray stayed right there with Isabella every step of the way.
It appeared that Isabella may have beaten Murray by a small stride, but according to SB Nation blog Hogs Haven, the race was neck-and-neck.

No matter who won this race, it does not change the fact that Kyler Murray is a uniquely exciting QB prospect. The No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft is coming off of a stellar year at the University of Oklahoma, completing 260 passes for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns in his final college football season, one that saw him become the second straight Sooner to hoist the Heisman Trophy on his way to being drafted first.
Speed is a killer, and the Arizona Cardinals seem to have A LOT of it. While it remains to be seen whether or not the Cards can improve from their dreadful 2018 campaign, things are certainly looking promising.
