There are a few similarities between Baker Mayfeild and Kyler Murray.
They both were starting quarterbacks of the Oklahoma Sooners, with both of them bringing home the Heisman Trophy. They also would become No. 1 overall draft picks of the Cleveland Browns and Arizona Cardinals.
That’s about where those similarities end, at least according to Kyler Murray.
“We’re a little different. I would never do some of the stuff he’s done,” Murray said with a laugh on Wednesday. “That’s my boy. He knows that. I just let him do those things and we just laugh at him.”
“I haven’t seen him for a while,” Murray said of Mayfield. “It’s going to be kind of special just to be on the same field. To play against him is obviously special.”
Mayfield agreed that even on the field, he has a different game than Murray.
“I think our games are different,” Mayfield told reporters Wednesday. “Just his arm talent alone is very special. The things he is able to do when he throws the ball, it comes out different. When you see it in person, you will understand what I am talking about. Obviously, his speed is next level. He is very quick and you try tackling him in a phone booth. He is a tough guy to defend.”
In his rookie campaign, Murray has amassed 3,060 passing yards, 16 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Mayfield has completed 59.2% of his passes for 3,109 yards, 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions so far in 2019.
The two young QB’s will meet for the first time as opponents when the two face off this Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium.
