It is the day of the 2019 NFL Draft and we still... Know nothing.
The consensus is still high on Kyler Murray as the first pick, at 90% on the day of the draft, but no one can confirm it.
Odd, since the Cardinals have the first pick, it is clear that the addition of ABC to the NFL Draft coverage has changed the dynamic that the NFL wants for the first pick. Keep it intriguing.
Now, the speculation can carry us the next six hours, where we will update all the rumors as they come in until we have something concrete to post or until the pick is made.
If you want my take on the whole thing...
Quinnen Williams or Kyler Murray at one. Don't think AZ will be able to trade the pick, teams basically daring them to not take Murray at this point. 49ers and Jets phones will be on fire if QW is the pick.— The hay is not in the barn (@SCoxFB) April 25, 2019
As for the rumors, let’s take a look at what is being said this morning.
Also, it's interesting while *some* insist here they're still weighing #1 pick, around NFL, sources I've talked to don't believe them, in *their* opinions. Pats source on #Cards: "I think ARZ will eventually pick Murray, unless someone blows them away w/a trade to get up there" https://t.co/LG5KBNbrbV— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) April 24, 2019
Josina is in the building in Arizona.

This would jive with what local insider John Gambodora has said about the first pick if it is not Kyler Murray. Now we have to go back to whether or not we believe Casserly.
5. The veteran I believe is most likely to be traded during this draft? #Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson. I think that relationship is wearing out and Arizona is willing to take calls on him.— Charles Robinson (@CharlesRobinson) April 25, 2019
According to a report from ESPN's @AdamSchefter, the #Giants are among the two teams most interested in acquiring #Cardinals QB Josh Rosen. Here are the details, and what a deal might look like: https://t.co/5j12ASs6vv— Matt Lombardo (@MattLombardoNFL) April 25, 2019
So wait... They've told Bosa he's the pick, they've told Kyler he's the pick and they've told Quinnen Williams he's still in contention?
If the #AZCardinals have made a decision on No. 1, they are keeping it quiet. Source said GM Steve Keim reached out to at least one player -- #Bama DT Quinnen Willliams -- to let him know he’s still a possibility to go first overall.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 25, 2019

"All signs" point Kyler Murray to #Cardinals
Drew Lock "gonna be a 1st-round pick" & "on #Giants radar"#Steelers "have made calls" re: trading into top 10, likely targeting LB
Josh Rosen likelier to be traded Friday. Watch NYG, MIA, LAC
During their facility visit to the #AZCardinals, Quinnen Williams and Nick Bosa did everything today -- car rides, meetings, meals -- as if the organization was comparing them side by side. pic.twitter.com/5TE1Wnjy83— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 25, 2019
ESPN's Wendi Nix just said this on ESPN of the Cardinals: “Will they opt for Kyler Murray, the presumptive No. 1 overall pick? Our sources say they sure will.” I don't think anyone from ESPN has reported this. Am I missing something?— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) April 25, 2019
I'm told, based on what was just texted to me, that Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray "would be shocked if he didn't go #1," per source.— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) April 25, 2019
So we'll see....#Cardinals #NFLDraft #OnTheClock
The Cardinals have had discussions today with agents for each of the top 3 prospects on their draft board (Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa and Quinnen Williams), according to multiple sources. I'm told the team is still keeping its plans close to the vest.— Michael Silver (@MikeSilver) April 25, 2019
