Kyler Murray puts up big numbers in Bleacher Report's 2020 quarterback stats projections

As the 2020 NFL season sits off in a distance, we have nothing but time to pass.

That’s why we will continue to see projections, lists and other types of offseason filler for a while.

One thing that did catch my eye this week was Bleacher Report dropped their quarterback stats projections for 2020 and where they had Murray ranked was really interesting.

First, from the article:

Projected Stats: 365 completions, 556 attempts, 4,276 yards, 26 touchdowns, 14 interceptions, 75 carries, 461 rushing yards, 3 touchdowns

That’s an improvement of 500 yards passing and six touchdowns with only two additional interceptions.

In other words, that’s a really good sophomore campaign.

Where would that rank Murray in B/R’s projections?

Yards = 10th

Touchdowns = tied for 10th

The names of the quarterbacks ahead of Murray in the projections for touchdowns:

Patrick Mahomes

Russell Wilson

Matt Ryan

Ben Roethlisberger

Tom Brady

Lamar Jackson

Matt Stafford

Drew Brees

Dak Prescott

He is tied with Carson Wentz and Jared Goff.

In yards:

Mahomes

Prescott

Stafford

Ryan

Wentz

Goff

Wilson

Brady

Roethlisberger

In other words, the expectation for Murray is to make a jump into the second tier of quarterbacks
