Kyler Murray #1 of the Oklahoma Sooners reacts in the fourth quarter during the College Football Playoff Semifinal against the Alabama Crimson Tide at the Capital One Orange Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium on December 29, 2018 in Miami, Florida. Last year's No. 1 pick Baker Mayfield, by the way, received $32 million. Chris Biderman of the Sacrament Bee and Kyle Madson explore the potential scenario where the 49ers draft Alabama defensive lineman Quinnen Williams.
With the uncertainty at the top of the draft, the varying opinions on this year's top quarterback prospects, and the depth of the defensive line talent in this class, the first round of the 2019 draft should be filled with chaos and entertainment.
The Redskins and a host of other teams are rumored to be interested in trading to acquire Arizona's second-year quarterback, Josh Rosen, should the Cardinals select Murray. Murray is a dynamic playmaker who gets plenty of credit for his speed and athleticism, but not almost enough for his ability to make quality, consistent throws from the pocket. "I get excited. I like to do deals". "They have the left tackle they want, or they have the right tackle they want".
San Francisco could stand to take advantage of that, too.
This scenario puts the Jets in a tough spot, but it's not a bad problem to have, picking between two elite defenders. They have their guys and when they talk to me they say 'Oh yeah, we'll have to put you somewhere else we have these guys.' But I haven't really had a team tell me, 'We don't think you can play there.' It's mostly been, 'We have our guys, so would you be willing to play somewhere else to get the five best on the field?' If the teams need a guy I'm their guy. Look no further than the 2017 move from No. 2 to No. 3 overall with the Chicago Bears, which ended with the Niners getting the player they wanted in the first place, defensive end Solomon Thomas.
"If Arizona doesn't take Murray, I project that he could possibly fall all the way out of the first round."@AaronTaylorCFB with a BOLD take on Kyler Murray. Oliver's rare athleticism and versatility could make him one of the league's most dominant defenders if he's unleashed in the right way.
