Josh Rosen and Kliff Kingsbury

"Josh is our guy"

Cardinals Coach Kliff Kingsbury answers questions about quarterback Josh Rosen's future.

TEMPE (3TV/CBS 5) -- The Arizona Cardinals are on the clock. From Tuesday until the NFL Draft, the team will be the talk of sports with what they will do with the No. 1 overall pick.

When Kliff Kingsbury, our new head coach, was at Texas Tech, he was quoted as saying he would draft Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray first overall.

"Our feelings toward Josh (Rosen) haven’t waned or changed," Kingsbury said. "Josh is our guy. Kyler is a tremendous player, being very complimentary before we played an opponent. I understand the soundbite, but like I said, there will be a ton of scenarios that come up before we get to the Draft."
