  • Cardinals 2010 Draft Thread

    Discuss anything about the draft here. Could be players the Cardinals are looking at, etc.

    As of right now, I would say the Cardinals greatest needs are:
    - 3-4 OLB
    - 3-4 ILB (Dansby might leave, could always improve)
    - 3-4 DE (depends how Campbell turns out, but some depth could still be useful)
    - OT
    - C (depends how Sendlein does, obviously the coaches think pretty high of him)
    - TE

    Some players of interest for me (relative to where the Cardinals might be picking):
    Sean Weatherspoon, 3-4 ILB
    Rob Gronkowski, TE
    Greg Hardy, 3-4 OLB
    Everson Griffen, 3-4 OLB
    Ndamukong Suh, 3-4 DE (not very likely)
    Rolando McClain, 3-4 ILB

    I agree, QB might be addressed with 2010 being Leinart's last year under contract, not sure if you have the needs in order but this is how i would put them

    3-4 OLB
    TE
    3-4 ILB
    C
    OT
    3-4 DL Depth

      Yeah I didn't have them in order, I was just putting them down as I thought of them.

      I don't think QB will be addressed with a first day/3rd round pick until Leinart is given another fair shot at starting. He hasn't had a good opportunity since '07? or maybe even '06.

        Starting to lean a lot more towards a OT in the 1st, Gandy is just terrible and Brown isn't much better, we clearly had too much faith in Grimm, he really hasn't improved the o-line that much

            Still leaning towards 3-4 Pass Rushing OLB/OT as our biggest needs, Gandy has added injuries to his list of negatives, and it would be great if we could get pressure without having to blitz up the middle, we do this a lot and teams have started to notice it and gash us for big gains to the outside

            I'm starting to look at some later round prospects and a guy who stands out to me is Newberry WR Kelton Tindal, we still lack a receiver with that extra gear who can spread the field deep. Listed between 6'2-3 and 185-200 he has been clocked in the low 4.1s on his junior proday and seems like he could be a legit 4.2 guy, the only video i could find is him taking a WR sweep to the house but I just like the idea of having someone who can stretch the defense vertically, Fitz is all we have right now for that and he is always double or triple covered, but as a project if he could replicate the stuff that Desean Jackson is doing in a few years that would be great

              We definitely need some speed on offense. I would be happy with a speedy scat back or wr/returner. Although I love everything about LSH so it would be a shame if he lost out on touches. Breaston is pretty much the definition of a solid reliable punt returner but whenever he is back there I don't expect anything explosive.

              On Gandy it looks like he is most likely done for the season, time to see what Bridges has over the next few games.

                  Be good to get an idea how they're going and what we have. With Gandy gone and a veteran journeyman taking over, we're going to need an answer pretty soon. Best way to get a good OT is through the draft, and get one early. Will we be picking too low to grab a good prospect?

                    I like the depth of the OTs in this draft, after Okung there isn't a clear cut #2 and there is a good possibility that one of them will fall to us

                    Bruce Campbell Maryland
                    Anthony Davis Rutgers
                    Trent Williams Oklahoma
                    Brian Buluga Iowa
                    Charles Brown USC
                    Jason Fox Miami

                    the last 2 have a chance to either prove themselves as 1st rounders or slip into the 2nd or even 3rd round with their post season performances, Bruce Campbell of Maryland may also slip a lot if he post season workouts are up to par but Campbell as well as Davis could put themself in the top 10 with good workouts

                    of course its not guaranteed that all of the underclassmen declare

                    BPA will in all likely-hood decide what position we pick could conceivable see us going OT OLB TE OG ILB NT and even FS or QB and a outside shot at WR if we trade Boldin, but with such a deep WR class i don't feel that we would get the best value for him

                      Haven't seen a lot from Canfield, H Johnson, R Johnson, Toler, or C Brown, and Keith from 2008 has high wraps but is also largely unknown, which all adds a lot of intrigue for me as to the Team's direction this draft given the perceived needs. ILB & OT jump out at me.
                      QB is an interesting one. Warner's time is limited (will this year be enough?) and with nothing behind Leinart, we'll need another body soon.

                        Canfield is on the practice squad, R Johnson and Toler both play a lot in our dime package and Cody Brown broke his wrist preseason and was put on IR

                            Not sure if Campbell will be there at our pick anymore after his combine performance, but I am hoping he is. Sapp in the 2nd would be amazing. Has Owusu-Ansah risen that far up the boards? I thought he was a mid-late round pick, but haven't seen his combine numbers yet. I would be a little scared to take a flyer on Snead, but it may be beneficial. Rest look like they fill positions of need, don't really know too much about them.

                              I like it but I wouldn't mind us targeting a future NT in the middle of the draft somewhere. Think we lost our 5th in the Boldin trade as well.

                              I keep reading about how high the staff are on Will Davis and if we end up signing Porter our rotation would be Porter/Haggans/Brown/Davis/Baggs. Decent but I hope it doesn't mean we skip OLB in the draft because it looks like there is a lot of edge rusher talent this year. Maybe we can target O'Brien Schofield and sit him for a year while he recovers.
