It was announced Wednesday night that Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray would likely enter the 2019 NFL Draft. With the #1 overall pick in the draft, the Arizona Cardinals could be interested.
Adam Schefter appeared on ESPN’s Get Up! Thursday morning and dropped the possibility that new head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who is known to be high on the Heisman winner, could push to take him with in the draft and use Rosen as a tradable asset.

Though this supporting cast, especially his offensive line was horrid, Rosen had the least successful rookie season of all the first-round quarterbacks in the 2010 draft class.
Kingsburry has coached numerous successful QB’s with the same stature and stylistic characteristics as Murray, most notably including Baker Mayfield and Patrick Mahomes.
