Kingsbury: Kyler Murray ‘one of the better dual-threat players to ever play’

Kliff Kingsbury provided more fuel to the fire Tuesday regarding rumors over his interest in drafting star prospect Kyler Murray.

The Arizona Cardinals head coach - who's widely believed to be targeting Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in April's draft - sang the quarterback's praises during the NFL owner's meetings.

"I mean, I guess it's more what don't you like?" Kingsbury replied when asked what he likes about Murray's game, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "When you watch him play, I mean, he can run it, he can throw it, he's a competitor. ... He's one of the better dual-threat players to ever play."

Arizona drafted quarterback Josh Rosen 10th overall in 2018, but speculation of the team's interest in Murray arose when Kingsbury was hired in January. While still at Texas Tech, the head coach said he'd take Murray with the first pick in the draft "if I could."

The Sooners prospect is expected to be an early first-round pick and has reportedly drawn interest from a number of other head coaches around the league, including Oakland Raiders bench boss Jon Gruden.
