Despite a few rumors to the contrary, most late mocks still have Cards taking Murray...4/25 - P Schrager warns: Late buzz having Cards considering Q Willoiams or Bosa is a "smokescreen"...After pegging the (Murray odds) at 90%... Daniel Jeremiah of NFL reduced that figure to just 60% but his final mock still has Murray going to Cards....
Wildassed rumor: According to Pete Prisco: "Cards are not going to draft Murray...Cards floated Murray to gin up ticket sales. Gambit didn't work - Cards now "going in a different direction." If Prisco's report has any merit, the possibility that the Cards try to trade dowm for more picks becomes a llkelihood, with Q Williams, D White, Bosa and Oliver on their short list - Gollin
" Rosen appears to be in a holding pattern. ...Bleacher Report - "Matt Miller writes: 'One AFC executive told me this week the Cardinals have received at least two offers for Rosen but want to 'save face' and get as close to a first-round pick as possible....Beat writer Bob McManaman says that, if Cards can't work out a deal with Oakland (#4) or the Giants (#6) they'll draft Bosa....
..Looks like it's between Murray, Bosa and Q Williams... Other Key Visitors: Henderson, C Ford, Murphy, Abrams...
N'Keal Harry told reporters there was no way he'd fall past Card 2nd pick at #33.
||Bosa with Q Williams and outside possibility...They're set at QB (with Jimmy G). CW has them drafting Bosa here if they keep the pick (Several NFL teams are said to be interested in trading up up to draft Haskins). Hosting AJ Brown and Samuels....
||Eager to trade down - possibly with Wash...Not crazy about J Allen..,Greg Williams targeting Oliver as his wanted guy...(At #3 or via trade down)?...Said to be eying Josh Allen with this pick...Bosa & Q Williams might be in play if Niners were to draft Allen..Meeting with Jonah Williams...Dillard could also be on radar should Jets trade down...
||"Love" Q Williams with Oliver as backup pick...Said not likely to draft a 1st round QB (talk is cheap)....Most intriguing factor here is that they have former NFL Network draft expert Mike Mayock and former HC and TV J Gruden calling the draft shots. Gruden said to be "all over Murray"....Haskins also receiving slight mention...We're hearing the names of Montez Sweat and Devin White receiving early mention. Will Gruden and Mayock overspend to make up for jettisoning K Mack and Amari Cooper?

They could do a deal with the Cardinals, but if they don't, Haskins would make the most sense. Q Williams a possibility...Seeing Ferrell and E Oliver...
||J Taylor or Sweat could be in play here...Need a QB. Need someone to block for him...in the hunt for Jonah Williams...
||Sweat a possibility (Unclear whether medical issues would jeopardize his status)...Local beat writer: "Lions not likely to become a stealth QB seeker & trade up...Falcons are talking with Lions about moving up (so they could take Oliver)...Quinn says he likes to wheel and deal for more picks. Intrigued by Tyree Jackson's "traits" *bit maybe in later round)...LJ Collier and Fant dropped by....
||Brugler - Bills focusing on trenches (notably DE)... Hockenson also an option...High enders visiting: AJ Brown, Metcalf, J Allen, Q Williams...N Davis visiting...
||Haskins impressed in visit...Risner stopped by...3/31 - There had been a somewhat snarky decription of John Elway having a "man-crush" on Lock...That rumor is givig way to reports that Broncs are zeroing in on defenders D White and E Oliver.

||"Have done their work" on Grier...
||Really like J Williams but don't think he'll be around at #18...
||Wilkins and Burns at top of their list. If gone, three other options are Tillery, Lawrence and Hockenson...Vrabel and Wilkins have past link...Could take Jacobs this high...Minor buzz has them targeting Lock...
