The Cardinals tried really hard at the end there, making everyone think the top pick was someone other than Kyler Murray. Why they did that is anyone’s guess, but in the end, he was the pick.

The Oklahoma QB is the reigning Heisman Trophy winner after throwing 4364 yards and 42 touchdowns for the Sooners last season. On top of being an elite threat on the ground. Other than his 5’10” stature, he would appear to be the perfect QB.

goes to Arizona, presumably to be the instant starter and thus putting Josh Rosen on the trade block. It also means the odds go up that one of the top defenders will be on the board when the Raiders select at 4th overall.

Most mock drafts have the 49ers taking Ohio State pass rusher Nick Bosa at two overall. What the Jets do is less clear.
