Kyler Murray had a terrific rookie season with the Arizona Cardinals. But he needs some help.

Arizona is looking to add another offensive playmaker in the 2020 NFL Draft. There are plenty of viable options. But Murray has one specific explosive receiver in mind.

With the No. 8 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, Murray wants the Cardinals to select former Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb. That certainly could end up being the case. Lamb is currently projected as a top-10 pick, according to many NFL Draft experts.

Murray has high hopes the Cardinals' front-office will select Lamb at No. 8. The two talented players played together for several years while they were both with the Sooners. Here's what Murray had to say regarding his draft-pick hopeful.

"Me and CeeDee have a great relationship," Murray said, via The Arizona Republic. "That's one of my boys. I would obviously be very fond of that pick. Obviously, I don't make the choices. I'm here for whatever. . . . But yeah, if we pick CeeDee, that would be great. We have a very comfortable relationship. I've played with him, I've been with him for years, so yeah, I don't think that would be a bad pick at all.”

Murray and Lamb teaming up together once again would be quite a scene.

Lamb is expected to be an instant contributor for whichever team he's drafted by. The Cardinals could use the help at receiver.

But as things currently stand, it's still unclear who Arizona is targeting with its No. 8 pick in the upcoming draft.
