Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray is meeting with Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury and overall manager at Oklahoma on Tuesday, a source confirmed to ESPN.

The Cardinals have the No. 1 pick in the draft, and Murray, the former Oklahoma quarterback, will be your favorite to become the No. 1 overall choice.

The Cardinals took quarterback Josh Rosen together with their first-round pick (No. 10) in last season’s draft. He appeared in 14 games (13 starts) during his rookie season, completing 55.2 per cent of his passes and throwing for 2,278 yards with 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions for a Cardinals team which won just three games.

Asked past month at the scouting combine in s if Rosen may be the Cardinals’ quarterback, Keim said,”Is our quarterback? Yeah, he could be, now, without a doubt.”

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported teams forced overtures to Rosen’s availability at the combine, but the Cardinals didn’t demonstrate any signs they were open to trading him in that time.

Kingsbury, when he had been training at Tech, said prior to last season’s match against Oklahoma which he’d select Murray using the 1st overall pick in the draft if he had the decision.

“He has always been very keen on me,” Murray said at the combination,”and I respect that and I’ve never taken this for granted. He is always somebody I will go to if I wanted anything. It would be interesting. It’d be a wonderful bargain if I had been picked No. 1″

Murray chose the over playing with the Oakland Athletics, that selected him with the No. 9 pick in the MLB draft last June.

The Cardinals’ visit with Murray was first reported by the Houston Chronicle.
