It’s not over yet.
The Arizona Cardinals are tied pretty heavily to drafting Kyler Murray through the media and most insider reports.
Yet, they continue to play the game and that game includes meeting with the guy who many believe is the best player in the 2019 NFL Draft, Nick Bosa.
Here’s a little intrigue to mix into next month’s NFL Draft: the Arizona Cardinals’ brass is having dinner tonight in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., with Ohio St. DE Nick Bosa, per league source. Bosa could be the potential No. 1 overall pick. A franchise-altering decision awaits Arizona.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 29, 2019
It’s quiet the irony to see the Cardinals fans that were on the fence about drafting Bosa change their tune now that there seems to be a consensus that the Cardinals are going to draft Kyler Murray.
Bosa was the unquestioned top player heading into the 2019 NFL Draft before injuries killed his 2018 season.
That began the question of whether or not you can take a player with light production in his career that has some of the best advanced metrics in college.
Bosa’s pass rush productivity is incredible, his career numbers are some of the best Pro Football Focus has seen.
Bosa would give the Cardinals an advanced pass rusher to play behind and with Chandler Jones and Terrell Suggs and then be able to lessen the burden of the loss that Jones will be in three years.
Bosa would be the perfect marriage to the Arizona Cardinals, we’ll see if it is a realistic option or if the Cardinals are just continuing to do their due diligence.
