Kliff Kingsbury says no decisions made for Cards' No. 1 pick

Kliff Kingsbury said Tuesday on the Kingsbury Chronicle podcast that, with the draft still weeks away, the Cardinals do not know who they will pick first overall.

"But it's fun to hear how I've said I do (know) and that it is a done deal and all those things," Kingsbury said with a smile. "So you just roll with it. Enjoy this process."

The "done deal" was a reference to a Tony Pauline report that Kingsbury was telling people in Indianapolis at the Scouting combine the team would select QB Kyler Murray.

"Yeah, just rolling around Indy saying it's a done deal," Kingsbury said. "I would have to adamantly deny that."

Acknowledging "the media was much more heavily involved than I anticipated" compared to when he last attended the combine as a player in 2003, Kingsbury also said he understands why the interest is so high even if he thinks some of the stories might be overblown.

"It makes it fun having the first pick because nobody knows if you are trying to throw smokescreens or telling the truth or what," Kingsbury said. "There are a thousand different ways you can go with this and we are still 50 days away."
