The Arizona Cardinals have been on the clock since December 30th but now only four days away until those final minutes are upon them
Despite what we know or heard, the Arizona Cardinals will have a decision made on what they are doing with the number one pick before the official clock countdown on Thursday to open the 2019 NFL Draft. At least, we think that’s the case.
There have been so many smokescreens and thoughts thrown out there by media, fans, and the team itself, that is is hard to gauge, still, what the Cardinals really will do with the number one pick. Know this though, whatever happens, happens as we have no control over it.
We have been obsessing for almost four months now over this pick. You could tell that Cardinals general manager Steve Keim was ready for this process to end in his press conference last week.
He said he doesn’t want to go through this again (of having the number one) and who could blame him? Unfortunately whatever move he makes, it won’t make everyone happy.
Let’s remember that. Not everyone is going to be happy what the Cardinals decide to do. If they keep the pick and take Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray, half the fan base will go nuts they gave up on Rosen.
If they decide to pass on Murray and take someone like Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams or Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa, then sure some will be happy but the Murray lovers will voice a lot of Twitter displeasure.
The point is, what happens, happens. We have no control and just have to accept whatever more they make. Sure, we can debate it and I certainly look forward to that but there is no part of this process where we get a say.
Even if the Cardinals trade the pick, which I highly doubt they do, we have to just hope Keim gets a good haul in return. Only time will tell on that one though. For now, we are on the final four days until this deal gets done.
