Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray is expected to be one of the top selections in next week's National Football League draft and if he is picked No. 1 overall by the Arizona Cardinals, he could see guarantees of over $30 million on his first contract. 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 think some of it can get misconstrued a little bit because there are some teams that have their guy", Williams told Schefter. It wasn't even two months ago that the Murray-to-Cardinals connection picked up steam at the combine after Keim, pressed on whether Rosen was Arizona's QB, qualified his answer by saying he is, "right now".
Kingsbury said Rosen has been "phenomenal" amid the ongoing speculation. Looking more and more likely that the Buccaneers will have the chance to land either Allen or Williams with the fifth overall pick, every fan in Tampa Bay should be drooling at the thought alone. "Can't say enough good things about my interactions with him so far". The GM wouldn't rule out a trade, noting that it always hinges on the haul back and the opportunity cost in missing out on what in this draft would be the Cardinals' best player on the board.
Added Keim, "We've had good dialogue". That is where the Lions would play him if they draft him, seeing as Decker and Wagner are holding down the tackle spots, at least for now.
So, why have the Cardinals not yet made a decision on the No. 1 pick?
"The fact that we don't know what we're doing but everyone else does, that's concerning", Keim said with a smile. "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".
