Kliff Kingsbury couldn’t tell you which direction his team is going.
While speaking Tuesday on the Kingsbury Chronicle podcast, the Cardinals coach admitted Arizona still doesn’t know which player it will select first overall in next month’s draft.
“But it’s fun to hear how I’ve said I do (know) and that it is a done deal and all those things,” Kingsbury said. “So you just roll with it. Enjoy this process.”
One report stated Kingsbury told people at last week’s NFL combine in Indianapolis that drafting dual-sport star Kyler Murray had already been decided, though he put those suspicions to rest.
“Yeah, just rolling around Indy saying it’s a done deal,” Kingsbury said. “I would have to adamantly deny that.
“It makes it fun having the first pick because nobody knows if you are trying to throw smokescreens or telling the truth or what. There are a thousand different ways you can go with this, and we are still 50 days away.”
While the Cardinals could take Murray, Ohio State standout Nick Bosa is also favored to be the top selection.
