Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is part of what one outlet said is the second-best collection of quarterbacks among divisions in the NFL.

The NFC West was second in an NFL.com ranking of the league’s eight divisions based on the quality of their quarterbacks. The NFC South was No. 1.

Murray, the San Francisco 49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo, the Los Angeles Rams’ Jared Goff and the Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson comprise the four starting signal-callers representing the NFC West.

NFL.com’s Adam Schein wrote the piece, which praised Wilson as a “megastar” and first-ballot Hall of Famer who now boasts Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf. Garoppolo and Goff are both “not great, but really strong,” according to Schein. Then there’s Arizona’s QB:

Russ headlines the division. Kyler pushes it forward. The 2019 Offensive Rookie of the Year is going to take his game to new heights in 2020, with the second-best receiver in the league (DeAndre Hopkins) now in the fold with the great Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk. Kliff Kingsbury’s offense is so quarterback-friendly, and Murray has the raw skills to fully exploit every advantage.

Murray, Garoppolo and Wilson are were within the top 15 quarterbacks in the NFL last year in completion percentage, and all four were within the top 15 in passing yards.

The 22-year-old Murray had 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions through the air and four more scores on the ground. He passed for 3,722 yards and had a 64.4 completion percentage.
