The CBS Sports HQ live draft show featured two hours of picks, trades, analysis and even some surprises. One pick that didn’t surprise was at No. 1, where the Arizona Cardinals took Kyler Murray (despite Pete Prisco disagreeing with the selection). Among the 32 first-rounders, four quarterbacks in total went off the board, but it was the pass rushers and defensive linemen who led the way; both groups had six players taken. Next up, offensive line and wide receivers (four each), tight ends, linebackers and cornerbacks (two each), and safety (one).
There were also several trades: the Lions traded up from No. 8 to No. 3 to grab edge rusher Josh Allen and the Jets moved back to grab right tackle Jawaan Taylor. And the Raiders, flushed with four of the first 35 selections, moved up from No. 24 to No. 11 to get a much-needed pass rusher. In exchange, they sent the Bengals picks No. 27 and 35. Cincinnati, by the way, wasn’t done making deals, trading for a new franchise quarterback: Josh Rosen.
