Now that reigning Heisman winner Kyler Murray has officially declared for the 2019 NFL Draft, we can look forward to months of speculation about how his game will transfer to the professional level.

These are the narratives and myths that will surround Murray as he heads into April’s draft. We’re here to dispel each and every one of them.
