Yes, if they wanted to get rid of Rosen, it's not good. If they had already got rid of Rosen, their intentions would be fully known now as well. No secrecy. We don't know this will play out. They could trade down a few slots, and still get Murray and collect another draft pick(s). Who knows?
Now, can the Cards afford both Rosen and Murray? Yes. Can Rosen run the Kingsbury offense? Kingsbury says yes-
Can they draft Murray, keep Rosen and make it a QB competition? Well, they could. It would be uncomfortable at best. No matter what, Steve Keim is in a pickle. If no team will 'give up anything', then Keim has to keep him. If not, imagine the tense discussion with the Bidwill's when he explains how he sent the 15th pick, a 3rd round pick, and a 5th round pick to get a QB at #10 in 2018, only to trade him away the very next year for 'peanuts' (like a 3rd). You can't have that discussion. And I expect he won't. They'll either pass on Murray, or get reasonable compensation (not great though) for Rosen, or draft Murray and keep both until a team gets desperate down the road for a starting caliber young QB and gives Keim a call.
I'm sorry, if I'm Keim and someone calls now and says "Hey, we'll give you 3rd for him", I'd just laugh and click the hangup/end call button. I want to have a decent position and strategy when I get called into the owners office after the draft.
i don't see it.
Edge was 2 inches taller and and 5lbs lighter
Edge had around 1500 yards from scrimmage average over his last two years.
Jacobs had 880 his last year.
Edge had around 6 ypcarry his last 2 years, Jacobs 5.3.
Edge had around 15 ypcatch vs 12.4 for Jacobs
Jacobs IMO is not near as explosive, and lacks the home run speed Edge had.
I'd wager Jacobs had a much more talented team all around than Edge too.
NFL.com compares him to Sony Michel
Overall, a pretty meh RB class top to bottom. Worst class I can remember honestly in a long time.
No I'm talking about what he will actually do over his career. I'm not even talking about the injuries. Everybody looks like a beast at Alabama. The skill set I see is closer to a committee guy like Ahmad. I do think he and Mack would look good together as a solid committee type arrangement but I don't think he's a round 1 5th year option type guy.
