Murray chosen as first pick by Arizona in exciting First Round of the NFL Draft

Sports

Rounds two and three of the 2019 NFL Draft continued on tonight in Nashville.

But, there’s something so exciting about the first round of the draft.

Some of the premiere collegiate talent waiting to hear their name called as the potential number one overall pick.

Well, last night, that honor went to Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray, as the quarterback from Oklahoma was chosen by the Arizona Cardinals.

This comes a year after the Cards took Josh Rosen 10th overall.

No surprises at two or three, with Nick Bosa going to the 49ers and Quinnen Williams heading to the Jets.

But, it was the middle of the top 10 were things got crazy.

Electing to go safe rather than flashy, the Oakland Raiders chose Clelin Ferrell with the 4th pick.

And the New York Giants believe they found Eli Manning 2.0 at number six when they took Daniel Jones, a man they more-than-likely could have taken later on at 17.

That led to Josh Allen being drafted 7th overall for the second-straight year.

This time, it was the pass rusher, not QB, going to Jacksonville.

T.J. Hockenson went 8th to Detroit, a man who will be a big-time weapon for Matthew Stafford.

The Bills certainly have to be happy with who they selected in Ed Oliver, a beast D tackle out of Houston.

And rounding out the top 10, the Steelers swapped picks with Denver to take linebacker Devin Bush.

Some other big names who went outside the top 10 were Dwayne Haskins at 15 and Montez Sweat at 26 to Washington.

Josh Jacobs went to Oakland at 24.

And for the first time under Bill Belichick, the New England Patriots selected a wide receiver in the first round, taking Arizona State stud N’Keal Harry.

The rest of the draft wraps up tomorrow.
