The draft officially begins tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET. It unofficially begins now, because you’ll be spending the entire day counting the minutes and scouring your cell phone device and other technologies for information about what’s going to happen.

When it comes to the first overall pick, good luck. The networks televising the draft seem to be committed on an ongoing basic to stoking uncertainty, not to getting to the truth. Even though the Cardinals surely know by now what they’ll do once they’re on the clock.

If they don’t, they’ve got organizational problems far more serious than a need to find multiple great players tonight.



They surely know. Unless coach Kliff Kingsbury is in the dark about the plans (which would be another organizational problem far more serious than a need to find multiple great players tonight), Kingsbury’s agent knows and Kyler Murray, who is represented by the same agent, knows.

And if Kingsbury’s agent, Erik Burkhardt, knows that it’s not Murray, Burkhardt needs to get the word out so that Murray doesn’t face the embarrassment of the first pick in the draft being someone other than him, at a time when he’s still the clear favorite to be the pick — even though the odds have dropped.

If Murray is going to be the pick, the Cardinals ideally will be hoping that he signs a contract contemporaneous with being picked. A contract that confirms his commitment to football, and that includes a no-baseball clause. While hardly the kind of thing that would prevent Murray from changing his mind about his sport of choice, a no-baseball clause would avoid the kind of offseason flirtations that could get Murray to start musing about revisiting his decision (like he did after taking signing-bonus money from the A’s), if pro football ends up being harder than he expected it to be.

Everyone seems to forget Kingsbury had Patrick Mahomes in college and did NOTHING but get fired.

Re: Welcome to the 2019 draft

I'm in full draft hangover mode with all our trading up but it was worth it. We haven't had much luck late for a while either. Bombed out with Murphy and Boston Scott. We are well overdue to hit paydirt late.

It better be more than seven (7) freaking sacks and, more importantly, he needs to have around eighty (80) total pressures (QB Hurries, Hits, Knockdowns) to warrant such a huge investment of draft capital...

But, it's not like Payton is going anywhere until he wants to and it's not like the Mickster has any spine to stop him...

Daniel Jones - QB to the Giants at pick #6 of the NFL Draft... don't think anyone saw that coming.

Yes, I agree. But I think Jone just might be the perfect shot to take over from Eli the most smoothly. Just a little earlier pick than expected.

Giants have one of my favorite slate of picks after day one. Hoping Mayock/Gruden's 3 1sts round picks work out for the Raiders, too.

Hope we stay at #62 (we won't) and select OG Deiter or WR Isabella.

Hoping Foster Moreau (or Warring) is still there in the 4th/5th and then would not mind a trade up (which I seldom cheer). Cheaper down there.

Re: Welcome to the 2019 draft

The only question I have is....who is looking to be available at 62? This is not a timed quiz.
