The 2019 NFL Scouting Combine concluded on Monday with a ton of players either making news for the right reasons or struggling big time in the biggest job interviews of their lives.
Once all 32 teams closed up shop in Indianapolis, one major story continued to unfold. The Arizona Cardinals are likely going to select reigning Heisman winner Kyler Murray No. 1 overall — setting up a potential trade of 2018 first-round pick Josh Rosen in the process.
Unfortunately for Murray, he reportedly struggled during individual team interviews in Indianapolis.
His ability to read defenses was a huge question mark

This really shouldn’t be considered too much of a surprise. Murray’s Q&A with the media on Friday didn’t go too swimmingly. He seemed out of his element and a bit like a robot.
If Murray’s team interviews went the same way, it could very well be seen as a red flag. Even then, it likely won’t be enough for Arizona to pass on him at No. 1 overall come April.
