Quarterback Kyler Murray met Tuesday with the Arizona Cardinals.

According to Aaron Wilson, the team paid the Oklahoma Heisman winner a visit in Norman. The Cardinals were represented by head coach Kliff Kingsbury and general manager Steve Keim.

For those hoping speculation would die down about Murray going to the Cardinals, I wouldn’t count on it at all. Everything seems to point to Arizona taking him first overall, and they absolutely should.

The organization made a bold move by hiring Kingsbury after he was fired by Texas Tech. If you’re going to go bold, then you have to go all the way. (RELATED: Kyler Murray Measures In At Over 5’10” At The Combine)

There’s no quarterback in the draft better for the system he’s going to run than Murray. The dual-threat quarterback is lightning quick, has a big arm and is extremely elusive. The former college star is almost like a video game-created character.

The Cardinals should pull the trigger on the pick, and the fact they traveled to Norman is just the latest indication that’s the plan.
