The first round of the 2019 NFL Draft is in the books and it was a night to remember for football fans. Major names in college football were selected early on, some surprising choices were made, a few trades went down, and three quarterbacks were selected to become the new cornerstones of the Cardinals, Giants and Redskins respectively. As expected, Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Kyler Murray of Oklahoma went number one overall to the Arizona Cardinals.
