Cardinals drafted Kyler Murray without a no-baseball clause in place

Cardinals drafted Kyler Murray without a no-baseball clause in place

North Texas product Kyler Murray has been selected the number one overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals.

A year after the Cardinals traded up to the 10th spot to grab Josh Rosen, they went with Oklahoma's dynamic Heisman Trophy victor. The Saints also traded their 2019 third- and fourth-round picks last year to acquire quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and cornerback Eli Apple, respectively, so the team didn't have enough draft capital this year to build a trade worthy of moving back into the first round.

Should Murray fail to meet expectations and Bosa lives up to his lofty billing, the former Ohio State defensive end will serve as a painful reminder of the simpler path they could have taken to substantially improving their team.

Kyler Murray won over Steve Keim. The 21-year-old returned $1.29 million of the initial $1.5 million payment he received from the A's, and forfeited the remaining $3.16 million he would have received on March 1 if he had chosen baseball, ESPN reported.

"I feel we can be very risky", Murray said. The Patriots have Tom Brady, who is still winning Super Bowls for them.

The party line will be that having two first-round players at the game's most important position is a positive. Fant's not going to be someone you draft in most re-draft leagues, but he should be on your watch list. After being taken by the team, Murray spoke about how excited he is to play for the Cardinals organization and be a part of Kingsbury's system.

Murray, Bosa and Williams were the top three picks in a preponderance of the countless mock drafts.

The Cardinals reportedly would get the Dolphins' second-round pick, No. 48 overall, Friday for the No. 10 overall pick in the 2018 draft.

Ehh. Just not sure how I feel about wide receivers in this Ravens scheme. Miami had the 13th pick overall, which they apparently deemed too steep a price for last year's No. 10 overall pick, and took Christian Wilkins - who Pete Prisco called his favorite pick of the entire draft so far. "I love to compete, so it wasn't a big deal for me".
