Arizona Cardinals draft Kyler Murray with the top pick

The Arizona Cardinals selected Kyler Murray with the first overall pick of the NFL draft on Thursday night.

The move was widely expected in the weeks leading up to the draft, but had come into question in the final hours as rumors of a potential wild card deal began to spread through the NFL world.

They were all for naught. First year Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury had said while he was still coaching at Texas Tech that if he had the first overall pick in the draft, he would take Murray. On Thursday, he made good on his word.

With the Cardinals selecting Murray, it leaves them with another deal to make — trading away second-year quarterback Josh Rosen, whom Arizona traded up for in the draft last year.

While Rosen is still a young prospect, moving him might be harder than initially imagined, as interest in the former UCLA quarterback has reportedly not been overwhelming.

For now, the Arizona Cardinals have two young quarterbacks, but moving forward, there’s little doubt that Murray will be the face of the franchise.
