NFL: Arizona Cardinals- Kliff Kingsbury Press Conference The Arizona Republic-USA TODAY NETWORK

Everything is going according to plan. The Arizona Cardinals are controlling the draft and making sure they control the narrative of how this all plays out.

They have continued to show serious interest in Kyler Murray as the number one pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and in doing so have made it abundantly clear that they have a price.

Whatever that price is, and what it is for, we don't know, but the Cardinals have taken their flirtation with Murray to the final point.

Today, while Alabama has their Pro Day, they instead went to Oklahoma and had a private meeting with the Heisman winning quarterback of the Oklahoma Sooners, Kyler Murray.

The Cardinals know Murray, Kingsbury recruited him to Texas Tech out of high school and when he transferred from Texas A&M.

He and wide receiver coach David Raih are both incredibly well versed in Murray the man and the player.

That leaves these meetings about two things:

1. Convincing Steve Keim that Murray is the man for the job.

2. Convincing another team that the only way to insure they get Murray is to trade with the Cardinals.

It is really the final part of the "Game of Throws" for the Arizona Cardinals.

They've played the game, we'll now see how it ends.
