Somehow i don't see Rosen being around for long even if Murray isn't drafted by the Cardinals. Elway probably wishes he had waited around for Foles. I never believed that the Eagles would franchise him.Nomad said:That would be a bold move by Arizona to select Murray with numero uno. And with a move like that I would bet Chosen Rosen is out of there. He's not going to put up with that being the 10th OA pick last year (In fact, Arizona moved up from No. 15 in a deal with the Raiders, giving up picks in the third and fifth rounds to get Rosen), receiving a big contract (11 mil signing bonus!) and starting most of the season last year.on3m@n@rmy said:Jackson was like 6'7", 249 lbs, and ran a 4.59 40. A physical specimen who performed very well in the other combine events. However, he has a list of weaknesses that make some label him a "developmental" QB.
One of the top, if not the top, QB prospects is OSU's Dewayne Haskins (while having limited mobility @ 5.04 in the 40) is considered low on experience and will have to learn on the fly in the NFL.
The other top prospect would be Murray. It might be feigning by Arizona, but many think Ky Murray is the guy for new Cards HC Kliff Kingsbury, who was a college Air Raid offense specialist. Murray probably is a good fit for Kliff's style of offense, but this being the NFL we'll see just how much of the Air Raid Kingsbury uses and how much typical NFL offenses (power, counters, operating under center) that Kingsbury uses, and how he adapts to the NFL. Kingsbury's QBs have mostly operated out of the shotgun. For Kilff, he might be just feigning about Murray and behind closed doors be all-in on Josh Rosen (to increase value he could get by trading down the #1 overall pick), or he might be like sell-sell-sell on Rosen and all-in on Murray. Interesting as it is, I'm more interested (or hoping) Kingsbury brings some of the Air Raid with him to the NFL because I'm curious to see how it works out.
And with Murray taken #1 OA he's going to expect to start himself (as well as ownership expecting him to start sometime during the season) and not sit the bench behind Rosen. Remember last year all the "Big 4" ended up starting most of the season with Darnold starting right out of the gate. Even Jackson, the last pick of the 1st rd, supplanted a SB winning QB in Flacco. Though Jackson came off the bench for Flacco when he had that early season hip injury, however, once Flacco was cleared to play he never got his job back (even for Baltimore's 1st rd playoff game). In fact, it's so bad with Flacco and so promising for Jackson, Baltimore is running him out of town and it looks like we get stuck with him over here in Bronco land. Lol.
It would be colossal can of worms for Arizona to take Murray when Rosen was drafted last year to be "The Guy" for the Cardinals.
