CLEVELAND — 12:01 a.m./ET-Murray goes No. 1, Jones taken at No. 6

The first round of the 2019 NFL Draft came and went Thursday with some unexpected falls for talented prospects and a couple surprising selections by teams choosing in the top 10.

For the second consecutive year, an Oklahoma quarterback went No. 1 overall, as the Arizona Cardinals selected Kyler Murray with the top pick despite spending a top-five selection on fellow signal-caller Josh Rosen in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Then, former Duke University quarterback Daniel Jones was selected by the New York Giants with the No. 6 overall pick in the first round.

In three years as the Blue Devils’ starter, Jones completed 764 of his 1,275 attempts (59.9 percent) for 8,201 yards and 52 touchdowns against 29 interceptions. Additionally, Jones rushed for 1,323 yards and 17 touchdowns on 406 career carries.

It has long been said that two of the most important positions are quarterback and the guys charged with getting to opposing signal-callers, and the latter part of that certainly proved true in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft as 13 tackles, ends and edge rushers were taken off the board Thursday.

8:30 p.m./ET- Former Ohio State star Nick Bosa selected by San Francisco 49ers with No. 2 overall pick in 2019 NFL Draft

Former Ohio State Buckeyes star defensive end Nick Bosa is going to have some bragging rights over his older brother, Joey, at family dinners.

The elder Bosa went with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, but his younger brother did him one better, as Nick was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the No. 2 choice in the 2019 NFL Draft In Nashville, Tennessee Thursday night..

In 29 career games for the Buckeyes, Bosa registered 77 total tackles, including 47 solo stops and 30 assists with 29.0 of those hits going for lost yardage. Bosa collected 17.5 sacks with two forced fumbles and one defensive touchdown.

8:24 p.m./ET- Kyler Murray selected by Arizona Cardinals with No. 1 pick in 2019 NFL Draft

Former University of Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray was selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the No. 1 overall pick in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville, Tennessee Thursday night.

In leading the Sooners to the Big 12 Championship, Murray completed 260 of his 377 attempts (69.0 percent) for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns. Additionally, Murray rushed for 1,001 yards and 12 touchdowns on 140 carries.

Murray guided the Sooners back to the College Football Playoff for the second consecutive year, where after winning the Big 12 Conference Championship Game with a revenge victory over The University of Texas, they battled the No. 1 team in the country, the Alabama Crimson Tide, in the Orange Bowl Semifinal on December 29.

Considered a questionable first-round selection because of concerns over his height, Murray clocked in at 5-feet, 10 1/8 inches, which has caused analysts to move him into the decision for the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

“I’ve never been the biggest guy on the field,” Murray said. “I’ve always been the smallest guy on the field. I’ve said it multiple times. I feel like I’m the most impactful guy on the field and the best player on the field at all times, so that’s just the confidence I have in myself and that my teammates have in me.

“I’ve always had to play at this height. Everybody’s trying to make it out to be something, but at the same time, I just go out and play the game that I love. I’m a competitor. I love the game. To be the No. 1 pick, that’s a kid’s dream come true. If my name was called No. 1 overall, I’d be ready to go, for sure.”

It marks the second consecutive year in which a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Oklahoma has been selected with the No. 1 overall pick, as the Cleveland Browns spent the first selection in 2018 on Baker Mayfield.
