With the number one pick still in hand, the Arizona Cardinals will make news with every move they make concerning the draft
So there was draft news today as it concerned the Arizona Cardinals. They met with Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray. It should not come as a shock to anyone.
Sure, I get why it makes news but is it really news? Why should anyone get excited over the news? The Cardinals would not be doing their homework if they did not at least meet him in person.
Notice how Murray is the only one that made news when the Cardinals met him? Half the country, especially the media would really love to see the Cardinals take Murray with the number one pick, I’m sure of it.
What I’m also sure of is this news today was always going to happen, whether the Cardinals planned to take him or not. It’s called due diligence.
As much as I would love to see the Cardinals stick with Josh Rosen, the Cardinals need to explore every possibility. They would be doing themselves a disservice otherwise.
The Cardinals reportedly have still not made up their mind as to who they will pick at number one, if they keep the pick at all. These reports that the Cardinals are preparing to take Murray number one overall are premature.
Even if the Cardinals did know what they were going to do, why would they tell a soul? They aren’t going to blab it to the media, that’s for sure.
So Tuesday’s meeting was likely nothing more than a formality. I also expect the Cardinals not to make the news if they decide to meet with anyone else from here until draft day on April 25th.
So let’s not get too excited about Tuesday’s news. It’s all part of the draft process of having the number one pick.
