The Arizona Cardinals Are Thoroughly Enjoying All of the Attention

The Arizona Cardinals couldn’t be happier with the publicity that owning the top pick in the NFL Draft is providing for them.

Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim couldn’t help but smirk.

When asked about quarterback Josh Rosen at the NFL Combine on February 27th, the club’s general manager was non-committal.

That lack of enthusiasm for the Cards’ second-year passer has created a firestorm that the organization seems to be thoroughly enjoying.

Everyone under the sun now believes that Arizona will be selecting Oklahoma signal-caller Kyler Murray with the first-overall pick of the draft in April.

The situation has brought attention to a franchise that is not accustomed to getting it. Whether the Murray rumor is true or not doesn’t matter, the Cardinals’ brass is thrilled with being the talk of the league at the present moment.

The Cards for a long time have been an afterthought in the world of professional football. The headlines that they’ve been garnering by having the draft’s top selection can only help to put them on the map. No matter how ludicrous all of the chatter may be.

Hopefully, for the sake of Arizona fan base, the team has no intention of taking Murray when the draft commences on April 25th.

The Heisman Trophy winner’s lack of size (5’10, 207) is just one of the negatives surrounding the youngster.

Recent comments by NFL Network analyst Charley Casserly suggest that Murray’s problems may run even deeper.

Casserly revealed last week that several GMs were indicating that Murray was awful during his Combine interviews. The former front office executive claims that the 21-year old lacks leadership skills. Casserly’s sources also insinuated that Murray’s study habits and board work are less than impressive.

Does that sound like a player who could take the Cardinals to the next level?

If Casserly’s criticisms weren’t enough, there’s also the Rosen factor to consider. Just over a year ago, Keim moved up during the draft to nab the gunslinger with the 10th-overall pick.

For now, the question about who’ll be Arizona’s quarterback in 2019 will linger.

There are exactly 46 days to go before this year’s draft gets underway. Until then, the Cardinals will be enjoying every minute of the newfound attention being thrown their way.
