Here are all of the teams that Kyler Murray has visited with
The 2019 NFL Draft is less than two weeks away, and the talk of the league seems to be centered around the Cardinals and Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray.
The overwhelming consensus is that the Cardinals will indeed take Murray with the No. 1 overall pick on April 25, but that has not stopped some other teams around the league from bringing him in one last time before the draft.
Here are all the teams that Murray has met with so far:
Murray’s first visit was with the team that most everyone thinks he’ll end up with, as he was in Glendale visiting with the Cardinals on Wednesday.
The Cardinals have also hosted Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa and Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, who are considered by many to be the two best prospects in this year’s draft.
New York Giants
Murray’s next stop was to New York, as his second visit was on Thursday with the Giants, who hold the No. 6 pick.

If the Cardinals shock everyone and go in a different direction, the Giants may be one of the more likely landing spots for Murray. Longtime quarterback Eli Manning is in the last year of his contract, and they need to find his replacement soon.
They had previously been a popular destination for Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins in most mock drafts, but many experts have started to believe that they will hold off on drafting a quarterback until next season.
The Giants have also been listed as a potential favorite to land Josh Rosen in a trade if the Cardinals decide to take Murray and move on from the No. 10 overall pick from just a year ago.
The next place that Murray is scheduled to visit is with the Redskins, which is strange considering that Washington doesn’t pick until No. 15 overall.

The fit is evident, though, as the Redskins are in the market for a long-term quarterback option after starter Alex Smith suffered a gruesome leg injury late last season that left his status up in the air.
They would more than likely need to trade up to have a chance at Murray, but deals from that far down are not without precedent. Just three years ago, the Rams moved up from No. 15 to the top spot in a deal with the Titans, giving up two first-, second- and third-round picks in the process.
Like the Giants, the Redskins are also a potential landing spot for Rosen, and have been cited by some as the team most likely to land him if the Cardinals do decide to move him.
