What does it all mean for the New York Giants?
Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury is telling people that it’s a “done deal” that the team will select Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, per the well-connected Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst.
How would this impact the New York Giants? Well, if Kingsbury is telling the truth and not just trolling everyone to drum up trade interest in the first overall pick that wold probably make it impossible for the Giants to get Dwayne Haskins at No. 6. If they want him, that is.
“Right now, we feel good at No. 3, but I’d definitely say if there’s an opportunity to trade down, we would absolutely look at it,” Maccagnan said on Wednesday.
Someone is going to take that bait.
Of course, Kingsbury and the Cardinals could just be playing a very elaborate game.
I know there are a lot of reports that Arizona will select Murray. I’m not buying yet. I think they are setting the table to trade down. What they are doing is how you do it

What to believe? It’s draft season, so nobody really knows what is truth and what is fiction. So, we’ll see.
