Kliff Kingsbury has reportedly been impressed with Josh Rosen in workouts
The Arizona Cardinals continue to insist they have not decided what to do with the top overall pick in the NFL Draft this week, and Josh Rosen could be making things more difficult for new head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
The Cardinals will hold a veteran minicamp this week, and Rosen will be in attendance as he has been for the rest of the offseason program. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Kingsbury has been impressed with what he has seen from the 22-year-old quarterback thus far.
Interesting dynamic in Arizona: Veteran minicamp is Tuesday through Thursday and Josh Rosen will be on field. I’m told he’s impressed Kliff Kingsbury, thus far, and this week is another opportunity. Right before Thursday night. https://t.co/8VFJtZZ9Ye

There is a wide-ranging assumption that the Cardinals are planning to take Kyler Murray at No. 1 overall, and that may still be the case. While Rapoport also reported on Monday that Arizona’s brass will meet this week to discuss plans for the top pick, the team could be leaking all of this information in an attempt to drive up Rosen’s trade value.
At this point, we may have to wait until the Cardinals actually announce the pick to know what they are doing. There seem to be at least a handful of teams that are interested in trading for Rosen, but he’s not going anywhere if the Cards draft a player other than Murray.
