According to Draft Analyst’s Tony Pauline, the Arizona Cardinals will draft Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Pauline insists that new Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury has reportedly told ‘people that it’s a done deal’ with the team drafting Murray.

Kingsbury has been a fan of the former Oklahoma Sooners player for a long-time now. He even previously said if he had the No. 1 overall pick, he would draft Murray.

He coached against the Sooners when he was previously the Texas Tech Red Raiders head football coach in the Big 12 Conference.

Since being hired by the Cardinals in January, Kingsbury has the dream scenario presented to himself. It also helps that Murray measured in at 5’10.1” to at the NFL Scouting Combine last week at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.

There is a month to go before the NFL Draft in April so potentially things could change. With still time to go before the draft, this could potentially be a smoke screen.

The Cleveland Browns did not make their intentions known until a few days before the NFL Draft last April. That’s when it was known that the Browns were going to use the No. 1 overall pick on Baker Mayfield in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Murray has spent three seasons over two teams in college football. He began his career with the Texas A&M Aggies, before transferring to the Oklahoma Sooners.

Murray has gone 260 of 377 for 4,361 yards in 14 games, as a one-year starter at the school. He also had 42 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

This past season, he became the second straight player to win the Heisman Trophy for the Sooners. Mayfield also won the Heisman Trophy in 2017.

As a college football player, he has gone 350 of 519 for 5,406 yards in 29 games. He had 50 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
