11 general managers likely to make waves at the 2019 NFL Draft

Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen reported for the team's offseason program and general manager Steve Keim was effusive in his praise of the No. 10 pick in last year's draft.

Before the schedule is released, the Cardinals have a few intriguing matchups on the schedule, especially if they select quarterback Kyler Murray first overall.

Recently, college football insider Dane Brugler of The Athletic announced where he thinks some of college football's biggest stars will be taken in the upcoming 2019 NFL Draft.

Keim said watching the speculation abound has been "fun" and "exciting". "Can't say enough good things about my interactions with him so far". It wasn't even two months ago that the Murray-to-Cardinals connection picked up steam at the combine after Keim, pressed on whether Rosen was Arizona's QB, qualified his answer by saying he is, "right now". To make sure the series explores a variety of scenarios the first round pick will be different for each seven-round mock and the picks will be made with the help of a different set of draft rankings each time.

"I usually try to be straightforward with you guys, but at this time of year, we all know the drill", he said. Keim, for his part, said he learned long ago it made little sense to force any draft picks down a coach's throat, since it inevitably causes a problem for the player as soon as he arrives. "Once we finish with the 120 process, Kliff and I will sit down with (Cardinals president) Michael Bidwill and we'll discuss all of our options".
