Final yr as head mentor of Texas Tech, now-Cardinals head mentor Kliff Kingsbury said he would pick out Kyler Murray No. 1 overall if he experienced the possibility. At the time, that was a pipe aspiration. It could also have just been buildup for that week’s Texas Tech-Oklahoma match.
Now, even though, Kingsbury coaches the crew with the No. 1 overall decide on in the 2019 NFL Draft and Murray claims he is all-in on soccer.
Tuesday, Kingsbury tried out to squash the Murray to the Cardinals chatter.
“Our thoughts towards Josh haven’t waned or modified,” Kingsbury said. “I get that we have the initially decide on and there are going to be a million situations, and above the following three months they are going to occur up. But Josh is our guy.”
Rosen, of class, was part of the deep 2018 draft course of quarterbacks the Giants passed on when the chosen Saqoun Barkley, who went on to turn out to be the Offensive Rookie of the 12 months, No. 2 overall.
Is Kingsbury to be considered? Is he just saying what he requires to say in the operate-up to this year’s draft? The Giants are not considered to be intrigued in Murray. Could the Giants be intrigued in Rosen, even though, if the Cardinals make him offered?
The Giants passed on Rosen a yr ago, with the Cardinals taking him 10th overall. He experienced an awful rookie year for the Cardinals finishing just 55.2 % of his passes, throwing 14 interceptions to just 11 landing passes and compiling a 66.7 passer ranking. The Cardinals, even though, were being an awful 3-13 crew that attained the initially overall decide on and fired its head mentor. Tricky to move judgment on Rosen since of that.
There is a perception that the only quarterback in this draft the Giants see as really worth a initially-round decide on is Dwayne Haskins of Ohio State. Would the Giants commit the No. 6 decide on to him, or shift up to get him? Schwartz writes that “Anyone who suggests the Giants, ideal now, are bought or sour on Haskins is blowing smoke.”
If the Giants believe Rosen is a prospect equivalent to, or much better than, Haskins producing a shift to get him does make some sense. Specifically if the Giants can hold on to their sixth overall decide on this yr even though executing it.
So, Kingsbury’s “Josh is our guy” comment was a great consider. Steps converse louder than text, even though, and his text will not necessarily mean nearly anything until eventually we get to the draft and the Cardinals confirm no matter whether or not Kingsbury was severe.
In situation you skipped it
Of class the Giants are on this listing, which ignores the perception that they believe Murray is far too little.
