NFL Draft 2019 rumors: Kyler Murray ‘would be shocked’ if he wasn’t picked No. 1

Kyler Murray on Bryce Harper's $330 million contract: 'There’s quarterbacks making more per year than him'

Kyler Murray expects to be the top pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The former Oklahoma star “would be shocked” if the Cardinals didn’t select him No. 1 overall, according to a report from ESPN, which cites an unidentified league source. 

Murray took home the Heisman Trophy last season after he threw for 4,361 yards and tallied 54 total scores. Oklahoma finished with a 12-2 record and advanced to the College Football Playoff semifinal, where it fell to Alabama.

Murray has been linked to the Cardinals for months and some have said it’s a near lock he will end up with the team.

Meanwhile, current Cardinals starter Josh Rosen has been at the center of trade rumors all offseason.

The Cardinals selected the 22-year-old out of UCLA with the 10th overall pick in the 2018 draft. He completed 55.2 percent of his passes and threw for 11 touchdowns, along with 14 interceptions, in 14 games as a rookie.

But, the team is reportedly considering dealing him and replacing him under center with Murray.

“I think the best advice I’ve ever gotten in life from so many different people is control what you can control,” Rosen told Sports Illustrated in a recent interview. “Whatever decisions are made, it’s my duty to prove them right if they keep me and prove them wrong if they ship me off.”

The Cardinals finished 2018 with a 3-13 record and missed the playoffs for a third consecutive season. They fired former coach Steve Wilks in late December and later hired Kliff Kingsbury.
