With summer arriving, that means the Cardinals have officially started their OTA's, minicamps, and soon, Training Camp. And, with all of these activities, come questions.
Hit the jump for the ROTB Writing Staff's answers to three of these questions, and don't forget to answer the questions yourself in the comments below!
1) The Cardinals recently picked up Quentin Groves, an OLB. How will this affect the starting lineup, and do you think it was a wise move?
Jesse Reynolds: Quentin Groves should add some depth to the team that is really young at OLB. Right now 3rd year O'Brien Schofield is the most experienced guy at the position so adding another body with some time in the league is a savvy move.
JoeCB1991: I don't think the starting lineup will be affected. Acho and Schofield will be the starters, if Groves makes the team it will probably be as a rotational guy unless he really lights it up in camp and the preseason in a way that makes the team feel he can be the starter.
Jess Root: Depth is good. Based on how Groves has been a disappointment since he was drafted, I doubt that he will crack the lineup. But he is talented, yet hasn't put it together. If he can, he will be a great addition.
Tyler Nickel: Picking up Quentin Groves was a great move for the Cardinals organization. He has never played in a 3-4 system as an OLB and his strength is a pass rusher, so I could definitely see him as an effective tool for this football team. I still think they will give Acho and Schofield the nod as starters, but Groves will definitely get some snaps and could compete.
Cdeveau: Groves, the OLB they picked up appears to be depth. Haggans is still rumored to be back. Acho and Schofield are promising stars. The Cardinals still have a lot of other young roster players at OLB position as well. So, as I said, depth, if he makes the team.
CardsFan08: I like the addition of Groves and Williams. For both guys this is a shot to show that they are not busts. I'm a big fan of giving people that last chance to prove themselves, and hopefully Horton and his assistants can help develop these guys. If they do they'll become total homers for the chance to prove themselves and as thanks to the team who gave them that chance.
Alex Mann: It won't make a difference on the starting lineup but I can see Groves making a massive impact on the rotation. There's a reason this guy was picked up in the second round, and even though he hasn't showed it in the NFL he will be able to be a solid rotational player. As much as a lot of non-Cardinal fans, (and some Cardinal fans believe) that Arizona is a place for old guys to retire, it's a lot more common for guys to revitalize their careers. Look at Holliday last season. A lot of people thought he was done and would get cut immediately but he proved us wrong.
