The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Grading Every NFL Team’s 2019 Draft

Arizona Cardinals: B

For the second year in a row, Arizona selected a quarterback with a top-10 pick. You can’t fault Kliff Kingsbury for getting his man in Kyler Murray with the No. 1 pick, but the Cards made themselves look foolish in the process. After trading up to select Josh Rosen at No. 10 a season ago, the Cards were only able to flip him for the No. 62 pick and a 2020 fifth-rounder. Arizona did fairly well for itself overall. Byron Murphy was an excellent selection at No. 33, little-known UMass receiver Andy Isabella could be a favorite target of Murray’s, and snagging UCLA TE Caleb Wilson with the final pick of the draft is a potential steal. Still, the assets lost last season to acquire Rosen — as well as the uninspiring return from Miami in order to move him — hurts the Cards overall grade.
