Arizona Cardinals Head Coach Cliff Kingsbury tells people that it's a "closed deal" that the team will select Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the first 2019 NFL Draft pick, according to Draft Analyst Tony Pauline. If that's the case, Josh Rosen would need a new home in the first round of 2018. Several reports from Saturday showed that the Washington Redskins were interested in Rosen in this scenario.
How would this affect the New York Giants? Well, if Kingsbury tells the truth and not only trumps everyone's appetite for first overall, it's likely to make it impossible for the Giants to get Dwayne Haskins into sixth place. If you want him, that's the case. 1
"At the moment we feel good at No. 3, but I would definitely say that if there is a way to close the deal, we would definitely look at it," said Maccagnan on Wednesday.
Someone will take this bait.
Of course, Kingsbury and the Cardinals could only play a very thoughtful game.
I know there are many reports that Arizona Murray will vote. I do not buy yet. I think they are setting the table for trading. What They Do Is How You Do It

What should one believe? It's design time, so no one really knows what truth is and what fiction is. We will see.
