NFL Draft 2019 Live Updates, Results, TV Coverage: Tracking Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa, Quinnen Williams, Other Top Players

The National Football League takes center stage tonight with a party that has become almost as huge as Super Bowl Weekend: The NFL Draft, live from Nashville.

The draft will be televised on multiple networks, including ABC, starting with the first round Thursday night. The Draft kicks off at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, ESPN and the NFL Network, as well as online outlets.

The Arizona Cardinals will have the top pick, unless they jump at a last-minute trade. The Cardinals news head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who's offensive-minded, could go after 2018 Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray, the ballyhooed Oklahoma quarterback who went undefeated as a Texas high school quarterback and directed the Sooners offense just one year after Baker Mayfield's departure to the NFL.

Other top prospects include former Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa, Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, University of Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver, LSU linebacker Devin White, Florida offensive tackle Jawaan Taylor, Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen, Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins and Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson.

Teams have a chance to address immediate and long-term needs with the draft. Questions like:

Will the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots draft an eventual replacement for quarterback Tom Brady, and will the Patriots fill the void left by tight end Rob Gronkowski's recent retirement?

Will the Green Bay Packers go after a future replacement for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was drafted by the team and then prepped while sitting behind Brett Favre?

Other teams that could be looking for future quarterbacks are the New Orleans Saints and the New York Giants. The Kansas City Chiefs showed tons of offensive firepower in 2018, so will they try to bolster their defense after letting several key players go in the offseason?

First Round Draft Picks:

1). Kyler Murray, QB (University of Oklahoma) — Arizona Cardinals

Murray, the 2018 Heisman Trophy winner, will join the Arizona Cardinals organization. Murray was widely predicted to be the overall pick by national media outlets after the two-sport athlete dominated in his senior season at Oklahoma. Many Sooners fans had feared Murray would depart the school after he became the No. 9 overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft and signed a contract with the Oakland Athletics. However, the A's wrote a contract that allowed Murray to continue his collegiate football career for one year.

Murray still has a contract, including a $4.66 million signing bonus, with the Athletics and could pursue a baseball career so long as his contract with the Cardinals does not prohibit it.

Murray gives Oklahoma the second back-to-back No. 1 overall pick and the second back-to-back Heisman Trophy winner. Former Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield, who Murray replaced last season, was the No. 1 pick by the Cleveland Browns in the 2018 NFL Draft.

2). Nick Bosa, DE (Ohio State) — San Fransisco 49ers

Nick Bosa becomes the third member of his family to be drafted in the NFL. The Ohio State defensive end joins his father, John Bosa, the 1987 No. 16 Overall Pick, and his brother Joey Bosa, a 2015 NFL Draft pick, in joining the professional ranks. The Bosa's are the second family to accomplish such a feat, the Manning family (Archie, Peyton and Eli) were the first.

Bosa chose to forgo his senior season with the Buckeyes to enter the Draft. He finishes his career with 47 solo tackles, 20 assists and 17.5 sacks.

3). Quinnen Williams, DT (University of Alabama) — New York Jets

The Alabama defensive tackle finished his two seasons with the Crimson Tide with 56 solo tackles, 35 assists and 10 sacks.

Williams was a relative unknown prior to the 2018 season, but an impressive 71 total tackles (56 solo) put the lineman on the radar of many NFL teams. Williams is an Alabama native who was raised by his grandmother after his mother died of cancer when he was 12 years old. Williams' jersey number at Alabama, 92, is worn in tribute to his mother.

4). Clelin Ferrell, DE (Clemson) — Oakland Raiders

A member of the 2019 national champion team, Ferrell is a surprise for many fans and media members. Some predictions had Ferrell being picked in the second round.

5). Devin White, LB (Louisiana State University) — Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Defensive players continue to be picked as the Buccaneers select LSU's Devin White. White, a 6'1, 240-pound linebacker, played three seasons for the Tigers.

White's best season came in 2018 when he posted 68 solo tackles, 61 assists and three sacks.

6) Daniel Jones, QB (Duke) — New York Giants

As questions surround the future of current Giants quarterback Eli Manning, the Giants selected a QB that could be the future of the franchise in Duke leader Daniel Janes.

Jones completed 60 percent of his passes in the 2018 season, leading his team to an 8-5 record. In his 2018 season, Jones posted 2,764 yards through the air and threw for 22 touchdowns.

For three years, Jones played for Duke head coach David Cutcliffe who coached both Peyton Manning at Tennessee and Eli Manning at Ole Miss and is widely considered to be a mentor for both Mannings.

Allen was a key in leading Kentucky's Wildcats to one of their best seasons in program history. Over his four year career with Kentucky, Allen posted 121 solo tackles, 99 assists and 31.5 sacks.

Allen is the first First Round pick for Kentucky Bud Dupree was the No. 22 by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2015. He is also the third-highest pick from the Wildcats program since quarterback Tim Couch was the No. 1 pick in 1999 and defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson was picked as the overall No. 4 in 2003.

8). T.J. Hockenson, TE (University of Iowa) — Detroit Lions

A two-year player for the Hawkeyes, Hockenson had 760 yards, 6 touchdowns and 49 receptions last season. Hockenson is the ninth tight end to be drafted in the first round since 2000.

9). Ed Oliver, DT (Houston) — Buffalo Bills
