The Arizona Cardinals have the first pick. If there is a silver lining to their abysmal 3-13 record at the end of the 2018-19 season, it’s that the Arizona Cardinals will get to pick first at the 2019 Draft (unless they trade the pick away.) The San Francisco 49ers, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, Detroit Lions, Buffalo Bills, and Denver Broncos fill out the first ten picks.

The overall No. 1 draft pick is still a coin-toss. The Cardinals drafted Josh Rosen in the 2018 NFL Draft. The former USC quarterback started 13 games last season, made 217 out of 393 passes for 2,278 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was also intercepted 14 times. Rosen’s time with the Cardinals (or at least, as the team’s starter) may be coming to the end. With new head coach Kliff Kingsbury at the helm, many think Arizona will pick quarterback Kyler Murray and either trade Rosen or keep him to bolster their QB stable. Others think the Cardinals will pick defensive end Nick Bosa, who has been described as the best pass rusher in the draft.
Who will be the overall No. 1 draft pick? Tune in to ABC at 8 PM ET to find out.
