Over the last year, Kyler Murray has stolen headlines across the soccer landscape due to dazzling performances at the collegiate degree, his decision to forgo playing baseball in favour of a career as a professional quarterback and his choice as??the first overall selection by the Arizona Cardinals at the 2019 NFL Draft. According to sportsbooks, Murray is the candidate to acquire against the Offensive Rookie of the Year Award Too.
Murray is the heavy +150 preferred to capture the hardware as the best newcomer in the NFL at BetOnline, together with Josh Jacobs (+650), Dwayne Haskins (+800), Mecole Hardman (+1800), David Montgomery (+2000), Miles Sanders (+2200), A.J. Brown (+2500), NKeal Harry (+2500), Marquise Brown (+2600) along with T.J. Hockenson (+2500) rounding out the top 10.
Considering Murray is probably going to be the Week 1 starter in an offense tailored new head coach Kliff Kingsbury, it makes sense to see the favorite label is got by Murray here. The Oklahoma merchandise has free rein to air it out and will extend drives with his thighs and scrambling capability, so it would be a surprise to see anyone other than the award is won by the 22-year-old.
Its Jacobs if any other rookie can supplant Murray inside this regard. The last three running backs to win the Offensive Rookie of the Year Award (Saquon Barkley, Alvin Kamara and Todd Gurley) have all been able to grab the ball as well as they operate it out of the backfield, and that certainly applies to Jacobs.
The 2019 No. 24 select must fit seamlessly to a vastly enhanced Oakland Raiders crime that will not be reluctant to run the ball. After all, his head coach Jon Gruden has never been afraid to work with his rookie running backs as far as he could. Cadillac Williamsd 255 and 310 touches in his first two seasons with Gruden in Tampa in 2006 and 2005. Workload is not likely to be a problem, so its definitely going to be interesting to observe how long it takes the pro game to be figured out by Jacobs.
As soon as Jordan Howard was traded by the Chicago Bears to the Philadelphia Eagles for a 2020 pick, it became clear director Ryan Pace had his eyes on a successor. That guy is Montgomery. While the Iowa State standout finds himself I expect Montgomery to distinguish herself from the pack and become the lead back in the first half of this effort.
The Bears have a solid offensive line and a quarterback in Mitchell Trubisky who increased at 2018 by leaps and bounds. Montgomery will probably have lots of opportunities to find the end zone, making him a sneaky wager at +2000, if Chicago can continue to move the chains like it did last season.
