2014 NFL Draft: Darqueze Dennard scouting profile

New, comments

The top corner could be a possibility for Arizona at number 20.

Cornerback isn't the biggest need for the Arizona Cardinals. It could be said that it is not a need at all, considering the personnel the team has.

However, with a general manager that believes in drafting the best player available, or rather, the guy they have graded the highest that is available, it is not out of the realm of possibility that a cornerback could be taken with the team's first round pick -- the 20th pick overall.

Darqueze Dennard out of Michagan State is a name that has come up in some mock drafts. The video above gives some of his strengths and even a red flag.

Dennard is not the fastest or the most athletic, but he has fantastic technique and is, in the words of Matt Ufford in the video, "a low-risk, high-reward player".

Is he a guy that the Cards should look at in the first round, even if he might find it hard to crack the rotation in 2014? After all, as the saying goes, "you can never have enough cornerbacks."
