The Arizona Cardinals were not proactive in determining the trade market of Josh Rosen in advance of draft weekend.
The Cardinals waited until they had selected Kyler Murray to initiate at least some teams in talks.
Some teams that would have been otherwise interested in Rosen didn't receive a call until after Murray was traded.
"I can't think of anyone who could have played this worse," said one of the executives. "EVERYONE knew they were taking Murray and you're drafting first overall. You have nothing to hide from anyone. They could have been quietly shopping Rosen for weeks at least."
