Wow, Love what the Cardinals did on the 1st day

16. Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie CB Tennessee States

The kid has a world full of potential and could be an all pro very soon, BC was far in away our biggest need and we went BPA imo at the spot.

50. Calais Campbell DE Miami

Huge steal right here, I have been saying it for awhile but getting a CB in the 1st and then Campbell in the 2nd would be my ultimate draft. He can play both DE spots in the 4-3 & 3-4. We have a very good and very deep rotation right now which should help our pass rush next year.

for day 2 we need a change of pace back, Jamaal Charles could be the pick in the 3rd, a punter, some o-line depth and possibly so more help in the secondary

Love the DRC pick, he was my #1 player that I wanted the Cardinals to realistically draft. Campbell I'm still a little iffy on, but if he reverts back to his soph. days then he was a huge steal.

Do you guys fell that Campbell would be best served dropping about 20 pounds of weight to regain his pass rushing edge? His sophomore year he weighed in the upper 260's and I fell that under John Lott he can return to his 06 form and could play standing up in the 3-4 at around 270.

Cards took two guys with a world of potential, could really pay dividends for the team the next few years.

Charles couldn't ask for a better pro to learn from and watch than Edgerrin James, on how to be an all-purpose back and how to be a pro. Charles, while very talented, has some ways to go in that area, but again would be well served with a year of that type of tutelage.

Yeah, I would rather see him drop down to around 270 also. Campbell's biggest tool is his speed off the corner. It's a lot easier to utilize that speed at 270 rather than 290.

I think he should add Weight and stick to 3-4 ends at 6-7 he is better suited there. He played in college by over power or a short burst. He doesn't really have that edge rusher moves.

Things Left
Speed Back- Jamal Charles, Chauncey Washington, Forestt
Olb-pass rusher Avril, Wheeler, Bruce Davis, Crable, I think we have a good chance at landing Crable or Davis
O-line-Still are looking for a LT
DB-Green has a 1 year tender.

2nd day hasn't been as good as the 1st but there were some solid picks

81. Early Doucet WR LSU
obviously great value here, a guy that most people had as a 1st rounder coming into the season, could start as our 3rd WR right away and if do end up losing Boldin at sometime (please no) then he could replace him.

116. Kenny Iwebema DE Iowa
Coming into this season he had a lot of people had him in the late 1st, but much like Campbell he had a poor senior season and only a decent combine. He is a great fit for 3-4 DE and it makes me wonder if they intend to stand Campbell up.

149. Timothy Hightower RB Richmond
I personally have no clue who this guy is(but i did make myself a sig) seems like a coaches pick because Graves tends to go with the big names. Looks like Shipp will be cut now to save about 2 mil in cap space.

MOrelli I thought we would get someone better with a cannon arm make the deep throws. I wanted Wright to go to the Cards.

Dykes is another good pick up, he will be a DE maybe DT.

There's a couple of UDFA pickups that I'm quite impressed with including some projects for Grimm to work with. There seems a little more potential there than the normal camp fodder.

I really think that DRC is going to be something special. He has all the potential in the world and even better that his head is on straight, reminds me of Boldin in some ways but not as outgoing


BTW is it true that Aussie chicks dig American accents?

LoL.

I'll be interested to see how Scott ranks the Cards draft. From all the different opinions I've read, it seems the only knock on the Cardinals draft is the fact they didn't take a top RB. Yet some peeps are ranking them quite low, while others are giving them a good rating. Seems daft really.

Though not explosive, Edge is still productive and so far has been healthy. The O-line will be better, the team can score points, so I don't perceive why the need was as pressing as some would suggest. Yeah, he's getting old and grooming for the future is a good idea, but I don't see it as a necessity compared to the other needs.

The lowest I have seen is a B-, NFLN said we were top 5


The only RB's I wanted were Stewart and Forte both were picked before us I think we had a great draft and Hightower reminds me a lot of Forte, next year we should have a good shot at a RB in the 1st, it has a lot more mid 1st types then this year where you had your top 2 then the rest

It's hard to see where Calais Campbell fits in this defense. He really isn't a two-gap, 5-tech end. If they project him there, he is going to need a lot of work on technique.

And he doesn't really have the athleticism of a 3-4 OLB. If he dropped 20 lbs I could see maybe an elephant OLB, but him dropping into coverage is a liability especially when he might have to defend against a RB in the coverage, he will get smoked by the likes of Jones, Jackson and Gore, probably even worse against TE's.

The Cardinals actually run a one gap with their DE's in the 3-4. So Campbell should be fine.
