Why The Cardinals 2nd Round Pick Could Be More Important Than The First




Just pure speculation on my part, but could the the 38th selection in the NFL draft be more telling to a team's success than the first?

Let's start with the premise that AZ doesn't consider QBs Geno Smith, Matt Barkley, Ryan Nassib etc..worth a first round choice and takes an DE/OLB (my guess) or an OL. What if Smith et.al. fall to the second round? Would they be a sensible pick to challenge Drew Stanton for a starting position? ( Bruce Arians has basically "guaranteed" Stanton the nod, because of his knowledge of his system.) IMO, if the pick isn't a QB, then Brian Hoyer will be the backup and Stanton the starter. I can't for the life of me, seeing a third round rookie (or later) outperforming, at least in Arians' eyes, to be the guy, even in a developmental stage.

So if QB is ignored in second round. will a QB be selected at all?
