Although the Arizona Cardinals are widely expected to select Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in this year's NFL draft, they're taking the time to get to know Nick Bosa, as well.

According to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter, decision-makers from the Cardinals are meeting with the former Ohio State defensive end on Friday night in his hometown of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Bosa is considered by many NFL draft analysts to be the best prospect regardless of position in the 2019 draft class, and he's unanimously projected as a top-five pick in mock drafts.

Murray, however, has emerged as the favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick, as there is now a widespread belief that the Cardinals plan to draft the Oklahoma quarterback – last year's Heisman Trophy winner – and trade former UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen, their first-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Bosa, as a result, is now projected to be the No. 2 overall pick – where the San Francisco 49ers sit in the draft order – in most mock drafts. 

By traveling to Florida to spend time with Bosa, though, the Cardinals appear to still at least be giving some consideration – or at least want other teams to think they are – to making the former Buckeye star the draft's top pick.
