Cardinals select multi-sport star Kyler Murray as No1 pick in NFL draft
- Arizona pick quarterback in first-round for second year in row
- Murray was also selected in first round of MLB draft by Oakland
Defying NFL custom and at least temporarily creating a quarterback quandary, the Arizona Cardinals led off the NFL draft on Thursday night by selecting Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray, the Heisman Trophy winner. For the second time in a year, Arizona went for a quarterback, having moved up from 15th overall to 10th in 2018 to grab Josh Rosen. NFL teams simply don’t do that, but with a new coach in college-trained Kliff Kingsbury, the Cardinals made the bold move. At least until they likely move Rosen elsewhere in a trade.
