The NFL draft sits just over a week away. As NFL teams do their due diligence on the top prospects in the draft, all of the hype heading into the first round revolves around the Arizona Cardinals.
Arizona holds the No. 1 pick in the draft and could select Kyler Murray. The Cardinals reportedly “love” the former Oklahoma star.
However, Arizona traded up in the 2018 draft to select Josh Rosen with the No. 10 overall pick. If the Cardinals decide to rock with Rosen instead of drafting Murray, one NFL analyst suggests Murray could plummet in the draft.
CBS analyst Aaron Taylor thinks Murray could fall out of the first round if the Cardinals don’t take him with the No. 1 pick.

Murray met with the Oakland Raiders, who reportedly have interest in the Heisman Trophy-winner.
The former Oklahoma star also had a visit scheduled with the Washington Redskins for this week. However, a recent report suggested he canceled the visit.
Would he cancel the visit if he wasn’t guaranteed to go higher in the draft than No. 15 to the Redskins?
It will be interesting to see how this plays out. If the Cardinals don’t select Murray, a team could make a bold play to trade up for the draft’s most electrifying player.
