Draft Grade: Where’s the Beef?
Kyler Murray has been talked about non stop for months, so that is what it is. He is an exciting, athletic QB that has a nice balance of passing and running skills. The issue with this draft is that the Cardinals had one of the worst offensive lines in football and did not do much to add young talent to keep him healthy.
Murray worked behind a line that was loaded with NFL talent, and this is going to be of great concern once the season starts. The Cardinals GM bragged before last season that they had the best offensive line in football last year, which they clearly did not. They might have a huge denial or talent evaluation deficiency regarding that unit.
They added a number of wide receivers and a tight end, with a focus on speed.
Thompson was taken at a very nice value in the fifth.
