NFL Draft season is upon us, so the mock drafts are coming out hot and heavy. The latest mock draft comes to us from ESPN guru Todd McShay, who has blessed us with his third rendition of the crapshoot.
As appears to be the trending thought, McShay has the Arizona Cardinals going with the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback in the top spot.
The 2019 NFL Draft will take place between April 25 and April 27 in Nashville, Tennessee. Nashville earned the honor of hosting the 84th annual player selection over cities Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas, and Cleveland/Canton.
McShay’s top two picks can be seen below, and you can view the entire mock draft by clicking here.

Mike Lombardi is shutting down reports of Arizona #Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury telling anyone that the Cardinals will draft Kyler Murray, let alone any of their draft plans. It seems that often these reports are just smoke screens. ———————————————————————— Follow @teamkylermurray for more 🔥
- Arizona Cardinals – Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma
We can’t deny the rumblings here, and we know new coach Kliff Kingsbury recruited Murray in college. I’m not all-in on Arizona taking him just yet, though — the Cards could be trying generate trade interest among the QB-needy teams. Still, the just-tall-enough Murray is a perfect fit to help Kingsbury transition the Air Raid offense to the NFL, and this pick makes sense from a scheme standpoint with all Murray’s athleticism. Now, what could the Cardinals get for Josh Rosen?
2. San Francisco 49ers – Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
The Niners will be hunting for pass-rushers this offseason, and getting the best overall player in the class at No. 2 would be a fantastic start. Bosa has length, speed and power from the edge, and it’s fathomable that the Buckeye paces San Francisco’s defensive line in sacks as a rookie. He’s that good.
