Cardinals attempting to do for Kyler Murray what the Ravens have with Lamar Jackson

The Ravens have built a contender around Lamar Jackson's unique talents and it appears Kilff Kingsbury wants to do the same with Kyler Murray and the Cardinals. 

"You see that it took Baltimore a year to kind of figure that out: What does Lamar do the best, and what type of pieces do we bring in?" Kliff Kingsbury said to Cardinals.com. "We're going to build this thing around Kyler, [what] fits him the best and can maximize his talents as a quarterback."

Every quarterback is different. You wouldn't expect Jackson to thrive in a Peyton Manning-style offense and you wouldn't expect Manning to thrive in Baltimore's offense as currently constructed. Smart coaches cater their schemes to their player's strengths. 

The Cardinals took a risk drafting an undersized quarterback like Murray after they took Josh Rosen in the top-10 the year before. He's a unique talent with a cannon for an arm and quickness that could rival Jackson himself. 

If the Cardinals can replicate what the Ravens have done with Jackson, we might be in line for a Super Bowl matchup between the two quarterbacks as early as next season. 

Whether the Cardinals pull it off or not, the NFL is a copy-cat league and everyone wants to be like the Ravens now.
