Kyler Murray will have a lot of new things to learn as he begins his NFL career with the Arizona Cardinals after getting taken No. 1 overall in the draft.

One thing will not be new, though - his jersey number.

The former Oklahoma Sooners' star quarterback wore No. 1 during his Heisman Trophy season in Norman, Okla.

Murray will be wearing No. 1 in the NFL.

There have been a couple of great NFL quarterbacks to wear No. 1, from Warren Moon to Cam Newton.

Perhaps Murray will join that list during his time with the Cardinals.

“I think it’s everything I’ve dreamed of. As a kid not only dreaming about being the No. 1 pick in the draft but just being in the NFL. Now that I’m here, man, it’s a blessing and I can’t wait to touch the field,” Murray said after getting drafted.
