With just one month before the 2019 NFL Draft, NFL teams are doing their due diligence on college football's best players. Among the best players in the draft is former Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray.

Although he flirted with Major League Baseball for a bit, Murray spurned the Oakland Athletics for a shot in the NFL. Now, he's expected to be one of the first players off the board.

Reports of him being the No. 1 overall pick ran rampant following the NFL Combine. Murray reportedly met with the Arizona Cardinals at the Combine, fueling the rumors he would be the No. 1 overall pick.

The Cardinals drafted Josh Rosen with the No. 10 pick in the 2018 draft, but are reportedly in "love" with Murray.

On Tuesday afternoon, more gas was poured on the fire.

According to NFL insider Aaron Wilson, Murray is meeting with Cardinals general manager Steve Keim and head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

Murray is the ideal fit for Kingsbury's offense, but that means the team would have to move on from Rosen.

After trading up to select the former UCLA star, the Cardinals likely won't get a great return on their initial investment.

The NFL draft kicks off on April 25. Stay tuned.
