The Arizona Cardinals are back on the clock to open the second round and there is some premium talent still available.
While the Cardinals most glaring needs remain along the offensive and defensive lines as well as wide receiver, reports are beginning to surface that the team may be leaning towards another position at the top of the second round.
Washington CB Byron Murphy is the heavy favorite to go at the opening pick of the second round if Arizona holds on to the pick tonight. https://t.co/jCKROfW3Sf— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 26, 2019
According to Adam Schefter, the Arizona Cardinals are leaning towards taking Washington cornerback Byron Murphy with the first pick in the second round.
Murphy, a product of Arizona’s own Saguaro High School, is one of the standout corners in this draft.
Many thought he could be the first corner off the board.
With Murphy making it to the 33rd pick, the Cardinals are now tasked with the true test of trust your board or go with where the biggest need lies.
We’ll be covering it all to when the draft resumes at 4 pm Arizona time.
