Kyler Murray is an accomplished passer, but his running ability was also a major reason why the Arizona Cardinals selected him No. 1 overall in this year's draft. Murray can extend and make plays with his legs.

The multi-sport star has ample speed. Though he didn't run the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine or his pro day, Murray claims he clocked a 4.3 the last time he did it.

That was "two, three years" ago according to Murray, but a new Instagram post from a Cardinals workout shows his wheels are still elite. In it, Murray is going neck-and-neck in a sprint with fellow rookie Andy Isabella.

Isabella, a wide receiver out of UMass, timed at 4.31 in the 40-yard dash at the combine.

That type of speed is what makes Murray so enticing a prospect. If he's in the open field, look out.

Murray's skill set and athleticism should make for a transition to the NFL that is fun to watch. He'll have his share of growing pains, but he'll also do things that wow you.
