Arguably the top quarterback prospect in the 2019 NFL Draft visited the Giants on Thursday in Kyler Murray.
Murray confirmed the visit to East Rutherford, posting a picture to his Instagram story out in front of the facility.

While Murray was connected to the Giants at No. 6 overall earlier this offseason, his draft stock rose to the potential No. 1 pick after the NFL Combine and his Oklahoma Pro Day. The Cardinals, who own the top selection in the Draft, are being picked by many to call Murray's name when Arizona is on the clock.
However, it doesn't hurt for the Giants to do their due diligence on the 5-foot-10, 207-pound Murray. As many know by now, Murray is a dual threat with his arm and feet when he's under center. In his junior season in 2018, Murray totaled 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns through the air and rushed for 1,001 yards and 12 touchdowns.
It is likely the only way the Giants could land Murray is if they trade up from No. 6, but in the NFL Draft, anything can happen. Duke's Daniel Jones, Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins, and Missouri's Drew Lock are likely the better bets at quarterback for New York.
Murray is another official visit for the Giants, who are close to spending all 30 of their allotted slots in preparation for choosing the right player in the Draft. It kicks off in just a couple weeks on April 25.
