Kyler Murray has a chance to be the first quarterback selected in the upcoming NFL Draft, and one report says it has been decided he will be the first player to hear his name called.

According to Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst, Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury was telling people over the weekend that it's a “done deal” the Cardinals are going to pick Murray No. 1 overall. It’s unclear if Murray is just the player Kingsbury wants or if the organization has officially made its decision.

It certainly would not be a shock if the Cardinals picked Murray. Kingsbury showed how much he loves Murray when he was coaching at Texas Tech and the quarterback was playing for Oklahoma, and Murray’s draft stock has been consistently on the rise.

The Cardinals traded up to draft Josh Rosen last year, but that was before Kingsbury was their coach. There has been speculation Arizona could select Murray and trade Rosen, and at least one team has reportedly expressed interest in acquiring the former UCLA star.
