With today marking only 9 days until the NFL Draft, it also marks the 1,000th day of speculation of whether or not Kyler Murray will go number 1 overall. What seemed like a sure thing after Josh Rosen took all Cardinals-related photos off of his Instagram, may not be so certain after all. Kliff Kingsbury has been very high on Murray since taking over as head coach, but the Cardinals’ front office may be having a change of heart.
According to ESPN’s draft site, Arizona has already selected Quinnen Williams.
ESPN has since taken this off of the their site, but it makes you wonder. Does ESPN know something they aren’t telling us? OR was this just an honest mistake?
NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah has reported that Arizona’s front office has changing their mind recently. What started as a 90% certainty that they would take Murray has since been reduced to just 60. Normally, teams don’t give up on a quarterback taken in the first round after their rookie season, but when have we ever known the Cardinals to do anything normal?
If I were a Cardinals fan, I would not at all be upset at all about taking Quinnen Williams with the first pick. I would be upset, however, about then having Brett Hundley as the next best option at QB if their relationship with Josh Rosen cannot be patched up.
