The Arizona Cardinals have done a great job of creating intrigue, even if there is none.
No, from the moment Kyler Murray entered the draft, he has been linked, pushed and sometimes just flat out put on the Arizona Cardinals.
Yet, for all of 2018 and heading into the 2019 NFL Draft, there was one man who seemed to he the favorite for the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Nick Bosa spoke about that today in his NFL Combine presser.

Obviously Bosa will be interviewing with a lot of teams, but the Cardinals own the draft at the start. They control the first pick and I’ve said since the whistle blew in Seattle that the Cardinals should draft Nick Bosa. Bosa is the one game changer I see in this draft.
Bosa feels the same.

We’ll see how this plays out.
I think the worst thing the Cards can do, if they in fact are not all in on Kyler Murray like I suspect, is lose a chance at Nick Bosa by moving down. It will haunt them for a long time. Hopefully not Terrell Suggs long, but knowing the luck of the Arizona Cardinals and their fans… it probably would be.
