NFL: Three possible Moves for the Arizona Cardinals #1 Pick
So, the rumors have begun to heat up and all eyes are staring squarely in the desert. Lots of the national media have taken General Manager Steve Keim’s quote of, “Josh Rosen is the quarterback, for now.” And ran with it. Good gosh, it’s almost like having a jealous girlfriend who’s looking for something to bust you on. The type that would listen to you on the house phone checking your voicemail, and burst into the other room yelling, “I HEARD YOU TALKING TO THAT WOMAN!!!!! IF YOU PRESSED ONE WE ARE THROUGH.” Like sheesh, calm down guys. That’s another day though, here are three possible moves the Arizona Cardinals can make with the number one overall pick, listed in most to least likely order.
1. Trade the pick to the Oakland Raiders
There is one man, that has been reported to be absolutely head over heels in love with Kyler Murray, John Gruden. Chances are it has been reported that the whole “Cardinals Drafting Kyler Murray debacle” is subterfuge. So assuming that the Cardinals are most likely to trade down. Thing is, trading with the Raiders all they would do is drop down to four. If Gruden includes a second of their three first round picks it becomes an offer they can not refuse.
2. Draft Nick Bosa
Before the media started creating this mess about Kyler Murray. It was well-regarded that this dynamic defensive player out of Ohio State was probably going to be going number one overall. The Cardinals biggest offensive need outside of O-Line is at Wide Receiver, which this years draft class is severely deep in. Chances are they won’t take an offensive player at number one. Bosa would be able to not only play but learn from one of the best men in this position in Chandler Jones, creating a dangerous 1-2 punch for opposing defenses.
3. Draft Quinnen Williams
A lot of the reasons for this is for the same reasons as above. The difference between the two is this guy absolutely tore up the NFL combine. As a defensive tackle that weights 303 pounds, standing tall at six-foot-three, Williams ran a 4.83 40 yard dash time. Which is absolutely unheard of. Especially considering He was faster and larger than J.J. Watt when he was at the combine.
Any of these three options can happen. The Cardinals will most likely end up addressing either defense or offensive line with their pick in the first round of this year’s draft.
What do you think the Arizona Cardinals will do with the first pick of the 2019 NFL Draft? Leave a comment below.
