Could the Cardinals dump last year’s top draft pick Josh Rosen in favor of QB Kyler Murray, who announced today that he was interested in being considered for the NFL draft?
Don’t doubt for a second that it couldn’t happen.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter states that the Cards would not only want to grab Murray when he finally comes out for the draft, but that they would then deal Rosen.

In an interview with Kliff Kingsbury, that took place back in October that recently resurfaced has him stating that he would draft Murray with the top pick if it was his, and guess what, now he’s got that with the Cards.
“I’d take him with the first pick in the draft if I could. I know he signed up to play baseball, but he is a dominant football player and I would take him with the first pick,” Kingsbury said.
There’s plenty that can happen between now and the draft, but that’s a rather big statement for the Cards new head coach, and Schefter seems to be on top of it stating it might just happen.
