Ask the Expert Question: Which rookie, any position, are you most looking forward to seeing on the field this preseason, and why?

Which rookie, any position, are you most looking forward to seeing on the field this preseason, and why?

Kyler Murray and the Cardinals “air raid” offense have me salivating. I am so looking forward to seeing the #1 draft pick and how he handles the starting job in Arizona. So far, Larry Fitzgerald has been heaping on some high praise for his rookie QB. That means something. Whether it translates into on the field greatness come September is another matter, but preseason indications will help slot Murray in the rankings. I have seen him go anywhere from QB5 to QB25 in rankings so far.
