The Arizona concluded their NFL Draft Day 2 with the 91st pick overall, the pick they acquired from the New Orleans in their first round swap of picks. With the 91st pick of the draft, they selected Pittsburg State receiver John Brown.

Brown is 5-10, 179 pounds and is fast. He ran a 4.34 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine and has run as fast as 4.21.

He fits the Bruce Arians mold at receiver -- smaller and fast. 

In 2013, he caught 61 passes for 1198 yards and 14 touchdowns. He was a team captain. 

So the Cardinals have been hitting their offseason goals -- improve at safety and tight end, add depth and physicality on the defensive line and speed at receiver.

What is your take on the selection of Brown?
