We talked to 7 NFL scouts about the NFL Draft, and here is what we found out

The NFL Draft is coming around the corner, and we were blessed to talk to 7 NFL scouts to pick their brains before the draft to find out a little intel. Let’s have fun.

The NFL Draft is creeping up just a few days away and I love to talk to NFL personnel around this time of the season. I never put any of their information out there, because they trust me enough to tell me this information. I have asked 18 questions to the NFL scouts and wanted to know what they were thinking on some questions floating around the web pertaining to the NFL Draft. So let’s get started.

1.) Is the Arizona Cardinals love for Kyler Murray real?

7 out of 7 NFL scouts all agreed that Kyler Murray will, in fact, be the number 1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. When I asked them how long this love has been going on, they said it was done before the Combine. All seven believe Kyler Murray is in and Josh Rosen is out, so that leads me to the next question.
