Murray is the better defender no question, but everything from first pass to neutral zone play and offensive zone play is in Rielly's favour. The skills Rielly possesses are much harder to teach or acquire later on in a career.

It's easier to learn defense, especially with the high IQ both Rielly and Murray have, than it is to learn offense.

Murray might end up being the better player but I highly doubt it. Columbus took the safe, low-risk/moderate reward option. Ours took a bit more guts (low-moderate risk) but with high/sky-high reward.

I truly believe Rielly will be the best player in the draft.
