The NFL Draft is not too far away -- it is less than a month away and that means we needed to get serious about our draft prep here on the site. We have had mock drafts and rankings of prospects, but what we hadn't done is talk NFL Draft on Revenge of the Birds Radio.
That has been solved. Seth Cox and I were on the air Tuesday night and had our first draft show.
We talked offense.
In two weeks, we will talk defense and then, the week of the draft, we will do one more show making our predictions for the Cardinals in the first round and our wish lists.
We talked a little bit about some of the potentially biggest impact players offensively of the draft, including a discussion about Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota. Seth provides us with some insight as to what NFL execs and teams feel about Winston, who does have off the field concerns.
From there, we went position by position, determining the likelihood the Cards select a player at that position, as well as talk about some of the prospects that fit here. We went down the line -- quarterbacks, running backs, receivers, offensive linemen and tight ends.
We don't think the Cardinals will draft a QB at all. I think this offseason is all about Logan Thomas. They want to see if he can at least develop into a reliable backup for 2016, as Drew Stanton will be a free agent after the season.
At running back, it seems to be a lock they will take one. Bruce Arians wants big and fast. Seth gives some possible names.
At receiver, we both believe that Arizona will likely draft one, as Bruce Arians likes to do so. We discuss the names of guys that fit -- Tyler Lockett and others.
On the offensive line, we both feel the interior line could get left out and if the team does pick a lineman, it will be a guy who could play right tackle.
With tight ends, it was more about who might fit as an H-back sort of player. Seth gives up the name Nick O'Leary and a few others.
