Kyler Murray has quietly put together an impressive rookie campaign. The only thing preventing him from receiving deserved recognition is the fact that he plays for the Arizona Cardinals and a plethora of other NFL gunslingers are in the midst of career years. The 2019 No.1 overall pick might be a man of few words, but his competitive edge is unmatched. Check out Murray do his best Brian Dawkins impression by unleashing a vicious tackle on a Cleveland Browns linebacker Mack Wilson to save a defensive touchdown.

How did we not see this before now! We'll tell you why: because Murray's Cardinals were playing an unwatchable Browns team.

If there was ever such a thing as a perfect tackle from a QB, the former Heisman Trophy winner delivered it on Sunday.

The fact that Murray was that motivated to make up for his interception tells us all we need to know about him.

If the Cardinals don't let him down, the 22-year-old signal caller is destined for superstardom. And if he ever ponders a position change, he'd manage just fine as a safety.
