    6th day of training camp that exemplifies why the Cardinals decided to trade
    Josh Rosen and draft Kyler Murray with the #1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
    Setting the stage:Formation: 2 X 2 spread, shotgun, RB to left of QB.Offensive
    Personnel (from left to right):18—Butler; 12—-Cooper; 74—-Humphries; 67—-Pugh;
    52—-Cole; 64—-Sweezy; 76—-Gilbert; 89—-Isabella; 16—-Sherfield; 29—-Edmonds;
    1—-Murray.Defensive Personnel: Nickel (4 Man Front of Suggs, Peters, Jones—-with
    Hicks at MLB, Vallejo at NLB over Isabella, Alford on Sherfield)Defensive Call:
    TEX stunt (Peters goes outside rush, Suggs loops inside), MLB middle blitz
    (Hicks)93—-Darius Philon swims past outside shoulder of RG J.R. Sweezy and beats
    him badly—-poor fan technique by Sweezy. Philon gets clean shot at Murray.Last
    year when the inside pass rush wash this quick, Josh Rosen typically took a dive
    to avoid the hit—-can’t blame him per
    se Byron Murphy

    , but as we see here, Kyler Murray has an answer
    by taking a quick jab step to his left away from Philon.Mason Cole tries
    valiantly to help on Philon, but Sweezy hadn’t slowed Philon down at all (Sean
    Kugler will be going over this today with Sweezy and will be correcting his
    technique. It looked like Sweezystood up and lunged at Philon (both mistakes),
    when he should have drop-stepped into a proper fan technique. This is very
    correctable—-so don’t freak out.)Justin Pugh bottles up the middle pretty well,
    although Terrell Suggs is able to eventually loop past him on his TEX stunt and
    put pressure on Murray after Murray shook Philon with his jab step and then
    flushed to his right.Both tackles handle their men well—-Marcus Gilbert stops
    Chandler Jones in his tracks, although Jones looks like he might be dropping off
    into coverage after contact.On the other side, D.J. Humphries reads the TEX
    stunt well and seals off Corey Peters’ rush.Key Block: Chase Edmonds fills and
    blocks Jordan Hicks on the MLB blitz—-which allows Kyler Murray to take his jab
    step away from Darius Philon and then flush to his right.Key Mistake on Defense:
    when Robert Alford covers Trent Sherfield on his slant, it looks clearly like
    the coverage is man to man. But NLB (nickel) Tanner Vallejo does not pick up
    slot WR Andy Isabella and instead looks like he is dropping into the seam
    (zone). The FS has too far to go to pick up Isabella man to man...which also
    suggests this is a blown coverage.Murray does what he does best when he flushes,
    he keeps his eyes downfield and while moving to his right, with a quick flip of
    his wrist Byron

    , he hits Andy Isabella (who ran a perfect deep comeback
    route) right on the numbers.When the FS overruns the play, Andy Isabella makes
    one shake move and scores the TD.This play is one of the main reasons why Kyler
    Murray is a special talent. He will make some mistakes, as all rookies and QBs
    do, but this play was a superb answer to an earlier interception and it
    highlights not only Murray’s outstanding improvisational skills (his quick feel
    for pressure and how to race to it), but just as significant, his ability to
    keep his eyes downfield while under duress, to locate an open WR and to throw a
    quick,accurate dart on the run. The smoke for the 2019 NFL Draft is thicker than
    ever.The latest report from Pete Prisco of CBS Sports is also one of the most
    damning I can remember, although I do not think it is a true..."The smoke for
    the 2019 NFL Draft is thicker than ever.The latest report from Pete Prisco of
    CBS Sports is also one of the most damning I can remember, although I do not
    think it is a true reflection of what is going
    on:“Initially Byron
    Murphy Arizona Cardinals Jersey
    , the ownership pushed for Kyler Murray,
    that much I know, I was told that. The reason they did is they are having a hard
    time selling tickets. Well, they put it out there. Arizona was lukewarm to it.
    So now, all of a sudden, they are pulling back and from what I’ve been told,
    they are going to go in a different direction. They are not going to draft Kyler
    Murray.”If this is accurate it is not a good look. While fans are important,
    they're also fickle. They'll bend and sway depending on the way of the wind
    blowing.If your grade dictates taking Kyler Murray... Take Kyler Murray.Being
    afraid of the fans reaction is silly.Now, based on one thing I've heard there is
    another possibility that makes a bit more sense.There is a rumor that Steve
    Keim, not
    ownership Sam
    Bradford Jersey 2019
    , is push for the Cardinals to keep Rosen and take
    another player at one since the Cardinals have not been offered a first in
    exchange for Rosen.This would make sense. Keim values Rosen, he tends to hold
    onto his first round picks until they prove him wrong. It's not a bad move for
    Keim to over value Rosen, in fact it makes sense, he should value his 2018 first
    round pick more than others seem to.So, if that is accurate, I understand and
    even agree.If the team is bending to the will of the fans, I cannot agree any
    less.
