Post Draft Thoughts:

“While three teams moved up to take a quarterback, the Cardinals quietly replenished a defense that lost some key parts. They didn’t panic and got a player that many had in their top 10 at pick 13, and added an extremely versatile defensive back in the next round. The Cardinals can win now, they just need to stop losing games that they should win. They added an excellent guard that fell to them in the 4th round who comes from a pro style system and can step in immediately.  T.J. Logan is an exciting playmaker and should boost their special teams from day 1. They will have to start to make a plan at QB, but were smart not to mortgage their current assets to get one in this draft.”

2018 NFL Draft

The Cardinals might have considered drafting a quarterback in last year’s draft, but instead were able to add some excellent pieces to a defense that needed an injection of youth. Their front office is in a precarious position as Bruce Arians does not like rookie quarterbacks, and on top of that does not see value in college quarterbacks that are not coming from a pro style system. Carson Palmer is at the end of his career, and players at his age simply don’t come back from injuries quickly. The Cardinals don’t seem likely to draft a QB from a predominantly spread system, and might have a prospect in mind after the first round that can learn a year or two before being asked to start.
