It seems like everyday another draft expert is saying the Arizona Cardinals can’t pass on a particular player in the 2019 NFL Draft
Today’s Arizona Cardinals can’t pass on player with the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft appears to be Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa. That is if you ask azcentral.com sports.
One day it is Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray. The next day it is someone else like Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen. Then it’s defensive tackle Quinnen Williams from Alabama.
Williams has been my choice for the first pick for awhile. That could change. However I’ve also noted that any of those players would be understandable going number one.
Murray is the one guy I’d pass on with those four, maintaining Josh Rosen should be the guy in Arizona. Murray wouldn’t be a wasted pick but the Cardinals can do better.
There are plenty of players the Cardinals “can” pass on. The reality is the Cardinals, if they do know who they want, aren’t going to tell a soul outside their war room until the pick is made on Thursday April 25th.
If they go Murray, then so be it. It will be debated whether that was the best pick but there are certainly worse options. Bosa still seems to be the consensus, but he’s not a can’t miss pass on guy.
Sure the Cardinals can pass on him. They can pass on him because there are other options. If they skip past Bosa in favor of a Murray, Allen, or Williams or even another move, say like a trade down or even out of the first round depending on the haul coming back in return, so what?
They are damned if they do, damned if they don’t. There are certainly can’t misses like Bosa, but he not’s a can’t pass on. There’s a difference.
In the end, maybe the Cardinals won’t pass on him. They will be looking carefully at him on and off the field this week in Indianapolis.
