Cardinals Have Received Feeler Calls About No. 1 Overall Pick


According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Cardinals brass including GM Steve Keim, HC Kliff Kingsbury and owner Michael Bidwill will have a final meeting over the next couple of days to discuss their plans for the No. 1 overall pick.

Rapoport reports that the Cardinals have received “feeler calls” from teams inquiring about possibly trading up to No. 1 overall.

There have been some recent rumors about the possibility of Arizona dropping back a few spots and still grabbing one of the top prospects in this year’s draft class, even though they may only get limited compensation.  

However, it remains to be seen whether any team would willing to trade up to No. 1 for a certain player.

The Raiders would seem more likely than the 49ers or Jets, but moving up is typically for a quarterback and Oakland has maintained that they view Derek Carr as their franchise quarterback. 

Odds are that the Cardinals will hold on to the pick, barring a late push from a team offering a big package of picks. The consensus is still that the Cardinals will take Kyler Murray to open this year’s draft. 

We’ll have more regarding the Cardinals as the news is available.
