Today on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, LaVar Arrington, Brady Quinn and Jonas Knox react to former Arizona Cardinals GM Steve Keim defending his decision to draft Kyler Murray number 1 overall instead of Nick Bosa in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Jonas Knox: "They did the right thing. They took the quarterback and everybody's job was on the line, and he's right, it did get him an extension and it did work early on with Kyler Murray."
LaVar Arrington: "At one point they were coming into the season favorite to not only win their division but to challenge for the Super Bowl out of the NFC. It just kind of fell off a cliff very quickly. "
Brady Quinn: "I didn't like the fact that they drafted Josh Rosen 10 overall, and then just moved on after a year, not only to him, but also to Steve Wilks. But you look at the fact that they had a plan, they went with the plan, it was working for three years until things kind of started to teeter. 
It takes a lot of balls to do what he did. To be able to then go [with Kyler Murray] with the number one overall pick, go right back to the draft, and bring in a head coach that you feel is better suited for him to be able to succeed and it was working until this past year when everything got derailed."
