NFL Draft prospect Kyler Murray ‘would be shocked’ if he isn’t drafted No. 1

Kyler Murray, NFL Draft, Cardinals

The biggest question heading into the draft is if the Arizona Cardinals plan to take Kyler Murray number one overall. Different insiders have different answers to that question, but according to Josiana Anderson of ESPN, Murray would be shocked if he wasn’t the first player off the board.

Per one of Anderson’s source who has is familiar with Murray the former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback expects he will be heading to the Cardinals shortly after 8 PM eastern time.

If Murray were to go number one overall that means the Cardinals will probably work out a trade to ship Josh Rosen to a different team. According to Matt Lombardo, one of those options is the New York Giants who are still having trade discussions with the Cardinals about Rosen.

The bigger question surrounding Murray is how far will he drop if the Cardinals don’t take him. Will Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders take him? Would The Giants find their replacement for Eli Manning and take him? Or could a team like the Washington Redskins trade up in the draft to get Murray?

Whoever gets him is going to get a one in a generation type athlete with his legs, but there are some questions about how his style will adapt to the NFL.

The good news for Murray, Cardinals fans, and other teams needing a quarterback is that the start of the draft is almost here. This is a developing story so stay tuned to ClutchPoints all night long for all your latest draft information and breaking news.
