1 – Chance Warmack – OG
Now that Arians has a competent QB that can run his deep ball offense, he definitely needs protection. Since Palmer isnt as agile and mobile asRGIII or even Kolb for that matter, and since the fastest way to the QB is through the middle, our guards need to be upgraded, so why not take what could be the overall best player in the draft?
2 – Zach Ertz – TE
Last year the Colts drafted 2 of the best TEs in the Draft. Dwayne Allen flourished under BAs deep ball system, while Fleener went down with an injury early in the year. A combination of Ertz and Housler would be deadly for opposing defenses along with Fitz/Floyd/Roberts.
Can also see Kevin Minter here if he falls with the suspension of Washington for the first four games.
3 – Menelik Watson – OT
I have a feeling after the first round run of tackles, that most of the tackle talent will drop, especially with the depth of the guard position as well as some of the “top” tackles (Winston/Smith) still available in free agency. I see Watson doing the same thing Bobbie Massie did last year, and if he falls to you in the third round, you have to take him.
However, i highly doubt he'll be available in third round, but who knows. if he's gone, i see the Cardinals picking a RB or trading the pick away
4 – Cornelius Washington – OLB
Washington exploded on at the Senior Bowl beating his tackles all over. He also conquered the combine running a 4.5 40 yard dash, a 39 inch vertical, 36 reps on the bench, and basically improved his draft stock since. however, since UGA has produced the likes of Jarvis Jones, John Jenkins, and Ogletree, Washington’s play was overlooked. besides, how amazing would it be to have the Washington & Washington firm on our defense?
5 – Tharold Simon – CB
at 6’2’’ Simon is a massive corner, which in case Cason and Powers dont perform, Simon could thrive next to Peterson. Also with them being teammates Simons Freshman year, they already have chemistry playing with each other.
6 – Marquess Wilson – WR
With Josh Cribbs knee being a concern and him not passing the Cards physical, BA decides to get his down field threat in the draft further increasing the Cards lethality on offense. Wilson, 6’3’’ 195 lbs, running a 4.45. 40 yard dash is a long strider who excels at the deep ball. Fitz, Floyd, Roberts, Ertz, Housler, and Wilson would make a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses.
7 – Ray Ray Armstrong – SS
Had concerns at Miami (FL) [dealing with a booster] however Armstrong definitely has first round talent showing ability to play from sideline to sideline. At Miamis proday he ran a 4.7 40 yard dash, 18 reps on the bench, and a 10’ broad jump and according to reports he’s been working his ass off to become a starter in the nfl and if you can get that out of a 7th round pick then it’s worth the risk of his character concerns.
just my two cents.
