Kliff Kingsbury won’t be able to up the ante during the NFL Draft this year.

His Paradise Valley home and its picturesque living room views won NFL Draft Twitter in 2020 as teams operated amid the pandemic from home, but the Arizona Cardinals will return to the team facilities this year.

There is a heavy favorite to take home the honors of nicest war room space at the end of the month.

The Los Angeles Rams have a sponsored war room in Malibu, along the beach.

So on Thursday, Kingsbury was asked to give his thoughts on the division rival and friend Sean McVay going hard after the war room crown for 2021.

“I really think it’s just a ploy by McVay to allow himself the opportunity to take his shirt off again and jump in the pool again like he did on Hard Knocks, probably sip a little rose, dip in the ocean and make some draft picks,” Kingsbury said during a pre-draft press conference.

“I think more than anything he headed that up.”

The Rams decorated a Malibu property pretty densely with team paraphernalia and Rocket Mortgage logos before releasing a video of the digs on Monday.

It’s furnished inside and out. The property includes an infinity pool, an ocean view, a big-screen setup and a living room.

And while that may appear to be extra and more than enough to outdo the Cardinals this year, Kingsbury at least can say he’s quite the trend-setter.
