Many take a look at Kyler Murray’s shortcomings and write him off as a franchise quarterback. Cincinnati would be foolish to do so.

With a new head coach who specializes in quarterbacks, the Cincinnati Bengals will need to explore all avenues to find the future at the position. At best, Andy Dalton is a serviceable starter for the next few seasons, but he offers the Bengals very little beyond that window. With that fact noted, it isn’t impossible to see the Bengals considering finding their franchise quarterback in the 2019 NFL Draft, and Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray is one of the names being discussed at the top’s of many draft boards.
