"In terms of Murray, people are beginning to believe nearly universally he will indeed be the No. 1 pick in this draft by the Arizona Cardinals", Jones reported during NFL Network's combine coverage. When that happens, then that will make it clear they wish to replace him, meaning Murray could be the pick at the top of the draft.
Murray has a long-established relationship with Cardinals' coach Kliff Kingsbury, who said last season while head coach at Texas Tech that he would pick Murray No. 1 overall if he had the chance.
The Arizona Cardinals own the No. 1 overall pick and have a quarterback in Josh Rosen.
Let's get into the pre-NFL Combine testing top 50 NFL Draft big board for 2019.
What Mayfield did a year ago for Cleveland, the weakness of this QB class in relation to the previous one, and Kingsbury installing a Murray-friendly offense all make for a ideal storm.
Some of the biggest news of the combine already came on Thursday when Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray's measurements were officially taken. "I have Darnold with the highest grade", Jeremiah said.
Although he didn't perform well in his first National Football League season (2,278 yds, 55.2% completion rate, 11 touchdowns, 14 interceptions), teams will surely consider the lack of talent around him and general mess of the Steve Wilks short era as to why he didn't have a great season.
You've probably heard by now that the Cardinals appear to be open to drafting Murray, the Heisman-winning quarterback from Oklahoma, with the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft, and trading last year's first-round pick, quarterback Josh Rosen. When asked about Rosen as the team's quarterback, Keim responded, "He is right now, for sure".
"Obviously, I'm very comfortable knowing how he operates that offense, what we look for, and how to operate everything as far as everything at the line of scrimmage", Murray continued. He's always someone I can go to if I needed anything. The QB told reporters he is meeting with the Cardinals this week.
