Murray was taken No. 1 overall by the Cardinals in the 2019 NFL Draft, after a single season playing for the Sooners. He was considered one of the top players in the country in 2018-19, winning the Heisman Trophy and leading OU to the College Football Playoff.
The Allen, Texas, product was also a stand out baseball player being drafted No. 9 overall by the Oakland Athletics in the 2018 MLB Draft. He originally signed a contract with a $4.6 signing bonus. But after his outstanding season at Oklahoma, Murray chose to only pay professional football.
Looks like he made a good choice.
