Kliff Kingsbury continues to say he has an open mind, but does anyone actually believe him?
The Arizona Cardinals coach told NFL Media on Saturday that the team hasn't made any decisions with the 2019 NFL Draft's No. 1 pick. The 49ers -- who pick at No. 2 -- and everyone else will have to keep guessing on the Cardinals' intentions.
"I think everything's on the table," Kingsbury said. "When you have that first pick, you've gotta turn over every stone and look at every scenario that's out there, and so we're definitely doing that."
Kingsbury said as much earlier this month, but that hasn't done anything to silence chatter that the Cardinals likely will select Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Kyler Murray with the first pick in April's draft. The 49ers, then, could select former Ohio State edge rusher Nick Bosa -- or one of the other defensive players who warrant consideration at that spot.
The Cardinals currently have a first-round QB on the roster in former UCLA Bruin Josh Rosen. Kingsbury previously said Rosen "was our guy," and told NFL Media the Cardinals' feelings on the second-year pro haven't changed. But, he admitted he has told Rosen the Cardinals' plans are still to-be-determined.
"Yeah, I've talked to Josh and he understands it's a business and what all goes with the first pick and what's going on," Kingsbury said. " ... I do [think Rosen could remain with the team]. I do.
"I mean, when you have the first pick, anything can happen, as you know, but you know, he's a talented player, and we're very high on him and that hasn't changed."
It's an open question whether or not the Cardinals are high enough on Rosen to pass on Murray remains to be seen, but the 49ers will be as interested as anyone else in the answer.
