Oklahoma Sooners Football | Kyler Murray Featured On Cover of Sports Illustrated Following 2019 NFL Draft

Leading up to coverage of the 2019 NFL Draft, one name dominated the headlines — Kyler Murray. Selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the No. 1 Overall Selection, the signal caller’s name continues to surface following the conclusion of the draft. Now, the reigning Heisman winner finds his face on the cover the Sports Illustrated…

However, Murray is not alone on the cover of this edition of the magazine. Caught up in the compelling story of the Cards pick, Josh Rosen also appears on the front. Yet, the photo of his draft day tears down the center. Simply put, it will be hard to separate these two moving forward. One represents new hope for a fanbase and organization. The other symbolizes the importance of winning placed on rookies in today’s game.

Glancing toward the bottom of the image, it’s hard to ignore the accompanying words ‘WILD CARDS’ in a bold, capitalized font. A once in a generation type athlete certainly deserves consideration as a rebuilding piece to a much larger puzzle. When fans look back at this draft, will Murray be considered the right pick? Or will Arizona have buyers remorse? Only time will tell!
