3. Kyler Murray, via trade

The Arizona Cardinals could end up with a top-three pick in next year's draft, which means they would face a difficult decision. For months now, there have even been rumors of the Cardinals moving on from current franchise quarterback Kyler Murray via trade, after this season.

Arizona had already been moving toward a rebuild by trading some of their veterans over the last year and parting with a guy like DeAndre Hopkins, too. If Arizona was in position to draft Caleb Williams or Drake Maye, then they would have to seriously consider making a Murray deal.

Murray is working his way back from an ACL injury he suffered last season and has played a couple of games now this year. He's made some great throws and had moments where you seem to see the Murray of old. Still, he's got some work to do, but the hope is that he eventually looks like the guy we saw pre-injury.

His inconsistent play this year might also give the Steelers a discount on a potential trade. And again, a dual-threat quarterback like Murray could give this offense new life.
