According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Arizona Cardinals haven’t made a decision on who they will draft with the No. 1 overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft. The draft is on Thursday in Nashville, Tennessee.

The team is considering quarterback Kyler Murray and defensive end Nick Bosa with the top pick. Everything is indicating that the Cardinals will draft Murray.

This could be a smokescreen as the Cardinals do not want to tip their hand. First-year Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury has been infatuated with Murray since he was in high school.

Kingsbury said back in October that if he had the top pick in the NFL Draft, he would draft Murray. He is just days away from getting his man if he can convince the front office to go with him.

Despite meeting with Bosa, there has been little talk that the Cardinals would go that way.

The Cardinals do not want to tip their hand because they drafted Josh Rosen in the 2018 NFL Draft. However, that was with the previous coaching staff.

The team has done all the right things by saying he is their guy until the draft arrives. If they draft Murray with the top pick, Rosen then would be available in a trade.

He is going to get top value. Possibly even another first-round draft pick for the team, who is rebounding.

Rosen does not fit Kingsbury’s system, like Murray does. When he was the Texas Tech Red Raiders Head Coach, he ran the Air Raid offense and wants to score as many points as possible.

Previously, Kingsbury has had mobile quarterbacks at Texas Tech. Murray fits the bill more than Rosen.

Bosa sat out the rest of the 2018 season after suffering an injury in the first month of the season. He elected to prepare for the NFL Draft then risk injury again.

If he is the pick, he would partner with Chandler Jones, giving the Cardinals two top-tier defensive ends.
