It’s Kyler Murray‘s show to run in the deser Antworten

t.In case there was any doubt about whether Murray would have full control of the reins as the No. 1 quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals this season Youth Chandler Jones Jersey , the first practice of training camp would seem to make the picture abundantly clear.According to Darren Urban of the team’s website, Murray took every snap with Arizona’s first-team offense on Thursday. It’s the same game plan the Cardinals have had with Murray the entire offseason as they look to get Murray ready to roll for the regular season.“Everybody in this locker room knows he’s going to be here,” wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said. “First pick overall, guys understand, it’s going to be his show. You want to be a part of it? Get on board.”Murray has always appeared to be the ideal candidate to run Kliff Kingbury’s offense in his first go as a head coach in the NFL. Instilling Murray as the starter straight from the jump also eliminates the distraction of teammates having to prepare for the possibility of seeing two different quarterbacks under center on a revolving basis, as the Cardinals experienced last year with Sam Bradford and Josh Rosen.“Last year, you have to worry about ‘50-50ing’ it up, make sure you’re getting reps with Josh, make sure you’re getting reps with Sam,” wide receiver Christian Kirk said. “Even the coaches would say, ‘We know Sam is starting but make sure you get reps with Josh as well because you never know when he might be thrown in.’ So you have to divvy it up.Of course, if Murray begins throwing out performances in practice on a daily basis that resembled Nathan Peterman‘s start against the Chargers in 2017, they may be forced to reconsider if Murray is ready. However, Murray knows he has full control over that outcome as well. Only if that scenario were to play out would there be any question as to whether Murray is the team’s starting quarterback or not and he’s intent on keeping that possibility off the table.“I think it takes away from the distraction, people asking questions and all that stuff,” Murray said of being the clear starter from day one. “It’s my job to earn that right every day.” The Arizona Cardinals’ 2019 draft class has earned mostly rave reviews. But it’s time for draft pundits to step aside. What can Cardinals fans expect from these players on the field in 2019—and beyond?"The 2019 NFL Draft was the most exciting draft in Arizona Cardinals history—yes, even more exciting than when we drafted Larry Fitzgerald. We had the #1 overall pick for the first time in franchise history, there were the trade rumors surrounding Josh Rosen, then the drama with N’Keal Harry at the end of the first round. (This close, Devils fans, this close.)When the dust settled, we had a new starting QB, a drastically improved WR room, and a few reinforcements for the defense. The reviews? Pretty pretty pretty good.But now that the mocks have been mocked (Clelin Ferrell at #4?!), Mr. Irrelevant has claimed his trophy, and the pundits have handed out their grades, it’s time to actually talk about the football players who joined the Redbirds over the weekend.What can we expect from this latest crop of Cardinals rookies? I delved into the scouting reports and took at look at the revamped roster to find out. So, let’s discuss how these guys will contribute on the field on 2019 in reverse order of selection.Undrafted Free AgentsLet’s be honest—most of these guys won’t even make the practice squad. Perhaps one of them turns out to be a hidden gem, but there’s no way to tell right now. After all Chandler Jones Men Jersey , they went undrafted for a reason. We’ll find out more about these guys once training camp starts.TE Caleb Wilson (Round 7, #254, UCLA)Not only did the Redbirds have the #1 overall pick, but they had the very last pick of the draft as well, using it to select a target familiar to the departed Rosen. Like many Redbirds fans, I had hoped they would have addressed the TE position a bit earlier, but the draft board just didn’t unfold that way.That said, Wilson is an intriguing prospect as a productive college player (60/965/4 TDs as a junior in 2018) with an eye-popping 40 time for a TE (4.56). However, Wilson came out a year early and probably could have used the extra year to refine his route-running and blocking techniques, as well as add more muscle. The scouting consensus is that he’s not quite ready to produce at the NFL level yet (hence why he was the last player drafted).What does that mean for the Cardinals in 2019? For one, Wilson is far from assured a roster spot with both Charles Clay and Ricky Seals-Jones ahead of him on the depth chart (and now perhaps Maxx Williams as well). He seems a likely practice squad candidate, but he could stick on the roster if he works hard in the offseason and flashes in training camp and the preseason (and one of the guys ahead of him doesn’t make the team). Still, don’t expect much from Wilson on the field this season even if he does make the 53-man roster. Hopefully he’ll be ready to contribute in 2020, as both Clay and RSJ are on 1-year deals.DE Michael Dogbe (Round 7, #249, Temple)Dogbe had an anonymous college career until his 12.5 sacks as a senior in 2018 put him on the NFL Draft radar. That and his numbers in the weight room clearly caught the Cardinals’ attention, as they used one of their three 7th-round selections on him. So why did he last to the end of the draft? For such a big (6’3”, 284 lbs), strong guy, the consensus is that he struggles against the run, so he’ll need to be coached up to be anything but an end-of-rotation option on the line.That said, the D-line is perhaps the thinnest position on the team right now, so Dogbe has an excellent chance to make the team out of training camp, especially with Robert Nkemdiche likely to begin the season on the PUP list. I could see Dogbe having a big preseason à la Cap Capi, but there probably won’t be a ton of regular-season snaps for him barring injury. But we needed D-line depth, and Dogbe is just that with a whiff of potential under the right coaching.OT Joshua Miles (Round 7, #248, Morgan State)Speaking of potential, Miles’s combine numbers are tantalizing. He seems to be the definition of ultra-athletic project Color Rush Chandler Jones Jersey , as his play recognition, instincts, and technique are all said to be quite unrefined. Sean Kugler will have his work cut out for him to develop this 6’5”, 314 lb hulk, but the rewards could be tremendous if he does so.But Cardinals fans shouldn’t expect to hear much from Miles in 2019. Even though OT is another perilously thin position, Miles is probably too raw to rely on as a rookie. Hopefully we can stash him on the practice squad and let him develop for a year while Keim signs a veteran fill-in for depth. As for down the line, it’s too early to say—it’s entirely possible, even likely, that he never pans out. Most 7th rounders don’t. But even a hint of potential, which Miles definitely has, is worth it at #248 overall.C Lamont Gaillard (Round 6, #179, Georgia)Center wasn’t exactly a need for the Redbirds with 2nd-year player Mason Cole entrenched as the starter and former starter A.Q. Shipley coming back from injury, but evidently he rated highly on the team’s board, as they snatched him up in the 6th round. The consensus on Gaillard is that he’s a bit undersized but makes up for it with fieriness, toughness, and solid technique. Teammates and opposing coaches alike speak glowingly about him as well—all of which makes it easy to see why Keim was so enamored with him.Still, it’s hard to envision Gaillard seeing the field much as a rookie (as always, barring injury). That’s not unexpected for a 6th-round pick, however. But would it surprise anyone to see him beat out Shipley for the backup center gig? (And remember that Shipley has no ties to this new coaching staff.) Another plus about Gaillard is that he played some guard in college (13 starts in 2016), so he could potentially figure into the backup plans behind Justin Pugh and J.R. Sweezy. Gaillard looks like a potential keeper for the Cardinals in the 6th round.WR KeeSean Johnson (Round 6, #174, Fresno State)Johnson was the third of three receivers the team selected over the weekend as the team clearly emphasized remaking the WR room. As the last of the three WRs drafted, Johnson has the highest hill to climb and is no lock to make the regular-season roster. But his competition isn’t too fierce (the likes of Kevin White, Damiere on the depth chart: Budda Baker and D.J. Swearinger. Neither should have anything to worry about from the rookie for the time being. But with the amount of sub packages teams are playing these days to counter the spread, Thompson should certainly see the field a bit as a rookie and hopefully showcase his big-play ability. But everything hinges on his health.WR Hakeem Butler (Round 4, #103, Iowa State)At 6’5”, Butler towers over his two WR draftmates—as well as every other WR on the Cardinals’ roster. The Cardinals have lacked a true downfield Chandler Jones Jersey Boys , 50-50 ball threat since Fitz moved to the slot and Michael Floyd drank his way out of town, and Butler seems like a good bet to fill that role admirably. He certainly looks the part, and his highlight reel is a whole lotta fun. This is a player to get excited about.So, as seems to be the common refrain so far, why did he drop to the 4th round? Well, that’s just it—he dropped, just like dozens of passes over the course of his college career. The first thing every scouting report on him mentions is his size, but the second is the drops. I imagine he’ll struggle with that as a rookie, making him a poor bet to ascend too far up the depth chart right away, but he should add a few big plays to his highlight reel in Kingsbury’s offense this season. He’ll likely channel his inner J.J. Nelson at times as well, but if he puts it all together, he could be the team’s next WR1. His ceiling is that high (and it’d better be, given his height.)DE Zach Allen (Round 3, #65, Boston College)said on 98.7 the other day that Murphy was a top-10 player on their draft board. Not top-10 defensive player. Not top-10 Day 2 prospect. But top 10 overall player. That explains the decision to draft him over filling more obvious needs like O-line, D-line, or WR with the first pick of the 2nd round. And for what it’s worth, Pro Football Focus agreed, calling Murphy a top-10 prospect as well. Twitter actually had a field day razzing Keim for seemingly using PFF’s draft board as his own.But back to Murphy. There are concerns about his size (5’11”, 190 lbs) and speed (4.55 40 time), but it’s clear the dude’s a baller with good quickness, instincts, and a knack for getting his hands on the ball (7 INTs and 20 PDs in his college career). He profiles are more of a slot corner, which means he only has to beat out Tramaine Brock to see the field a ton as a rookie. He should do just that and quickly become a mainstay in what is looking like a very good secondary in 2019. Welcome home, try.Final ThoughtsYour turn, Redbirds fans. What are you expecting out of this year’s rookie class? Think any of the late-rounders make an impact? Which WR has the brightest future? And, most importantly, what are you looking for out of Murray this year? Fire away in the comments.
