Cardinals becoming less likely to draft Kyler Murray?

Cardinals becoming less likely to draft Kyler Murray?

Washington would nearly certainly have to trade up to draft Murray, but the fact that the Heisman Trophy victor took a visit with them indicates he feels there is at least a chance he won't wind up in Arizona. The additions of pass rusher Shaquil Barrett, linebacker Deone Bucannon, and safety Kentrell Brice will not prohibit the Buccaneers from also investing their first three picks on the defensive side of the ball. Now last week, I asked you all for your flawless trade scenario to nab Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen, which for some of you all involved the team's first round pick.

"I'm not going to get into hypotheticals today", Keim said.

In recent days, we've seen a steady flow of mock drafts being released ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft, and for the first time all offseason, there appears to be no consensus for the New York Giants. "He is a pro's pro, and the one thing I have appreciated about him the most since we drafted him is he has an unbelievable amount of mental toughness".

There's no universe in which Murray, the presumptive No. 1 pick, falls out of the first round. "If you trade back, what do you get for it, No. 1, and who are the players in contention if you trade back that far?"

Finally, we talk about whether draft fans should buy into any anonymous source information this time of year, or any time of year, for that matter. The first big move came when they traded for Antonio Brown, arguably the best wide receiver in football, and they have not stopped since. "Once we finish with the 120 process, Kliff and I will sit down with (Cardinals president) Michael Bidwill and we'll discuss all of our options".
