Arizona Cardinals April Scouting Report
Well, draft day is upon us. The Arizona Cardinals have really been the "Stong Silent" type in this yearâ€™s free agency. But right now, letâ€™s focus on tonightâ€™s draft.
Arizona Cardinal Draft Picks
So 8 picks total, 3 potential impact picks this weekend.
2022 Draft needs for the Arizona Cardinals: The Arizona Cardinals have several areas of need. I would rank them as follows:
Edge Rusher, CB. WR, OL, S,CB (again) and really could improve everywhere. Best player available is always the right pick.
At Edge Rusher, Purdueâ€™s DE George Karlaftis has been aligned to the #23 pick with the Cardinals. I would applaud that pick. Penn Stateâ€™s Arnold Ebiketie is an option but even Michiganâ€™s David Ojabo would be great.
The Cardinals have needed to draft about 20 CBs when they have not. I would doubt that CB Sauce Gardner â€“ Cincinnati or CB Derek Stingley Jr â€“ LSU would drop to AZ. They donâ€™t really have the draft capital to move up. So who would they look at? CB Trent McDuffie â€“ Washington, CB Andrew Booth Jr â€“ Clemson or CB Kaiir Elam â€“ Florida all have been mocked to the Cardinals but all have downsides and you really need to make a splash on Day 1 of the draft.
At OL, C Tyler Linderbaum would also be a great fit. This guy is a football player. Many have said he had short armsâ€¦ come onâ€¦. He should have a long great career.
If a solid WR falls to the Cardinals in the second round, donâ€™t be surprised if they graone as this draft is deep with good WR.
My take: The Cardinals move down, and get more picks in the 3rd and 4th if possible. Go Cardinals!!!!
