NFL draft rumors 2019: Latest news, trade talk as Round 1 picks start


Thirty-two football players lives will change forever Thursday night when they're drafted by NFL teams. But it isn't a simple process.

The draft order certainly will change, as teams jockey for position to pick the player they really want. Top of the list for many is Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray, followed by a host of pass rushers -- Ohio State's Nick Bosa, Alabama's Quinnen Williams and Kentucky's Josh Allen, just to name a few.

The Arizona Cardinals are scheduled to pick first, followed by the 49ers, New York Jets and Raiders. What those four teams do could set the tone for the draft, so there will be lots of news and trade speculation surrounding them.
