The NFL Draft is only a few days away and the Arizona Cardinals still, by all accounts, do not know what to do with the first pick. That is largely due to the team's apparent uncertainty with how quarterback Josh Rosen will fit with newly hired head coach Kliff Kingsbury. But the latest reports indicate that things are actually going pretty well.

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Rosen has impressed Kingsbury so far. With veteran minicamps slated to start this week, he will have more chances to impress.

The Cardinals traded up to draft Rosen 10th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft. But after going 3-10 with Rosen as a starter and 3-13 overall, the team axed head coach Steve Wilks and started over with Kingsbury.

Kingsbury has previously spoken glowingly about Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray, leading many to believe he would like to ax Rosen and start over with Murray instead.

Many mock drafts still believe that the Cardinals will pull the trigger on Murray, but with the latest revelations about the Kliff Kingsbury-Josh Rosen relationship, all bets are off.

It remains largely a mystery what the Arizona Cardinals will do with the No. 1 overall pick. With so many needs they could either grab the best player available, take Murray to compete against Rosen, or trade it away.

The draft starts on Thursday at 8 p.m. EST.
