The Arizona Cardinals new head coach Kliff Kingsbury said back in October that he would take Kyler Murray with the first pick of the NFL draft if he could. Fast forward to today and he now has that opportunity.

Murray is now expected to enter the NFL Draft and according to Adam Schefter, the Cardinals might be open to drafting the Sooners quarterback with the first pick and trading away last year’s first round pick quarterback Josh Rosen.

Let’s hope Kingsbury and the Cardinals pull this off. The only thing that would make it more entertaining is if they weren’t able to trade Rosen and they had both quarterbacks battling it out.
