It is the time of year where we have a lot of information and know nothing.
Kent Somers, the great beat reporter of the Arizona Cardinals put that into practice yesterday:
It's not to say don't listen to anyone, it's more to say, get all the information you can and then realize that we don't know when or if anything will actually come of it.
All of this to say, the Arizona Cardinals have met with a plethora of draft picks. It could mean nothing, it could mean something, but I like to focus on the positions and know that the names are interchangeable.
Here are the prospects we know have met with the Arizona Cardinals, thanks to Walter Football.
Tarell Basham, DE, Ohio
Basham is a long pass rusher with strength off the edge and a dominating style of play. He isn't a great athlete or have a bevy of pass rushing moves, but he works hard and knows how to use his assets.
Avery Gennesy, OT, Texas A&M
I'm lost on this one, as Gennesy is an athlete, but struggles in pass pro, as he doesn't move laterally that well. Except, he has some traits that can't be taught, and could be had one day three, which means he could be a Jared Veldheer type replacement, which makes sense.
Jimmie Gilbert, OLB, Colorado
A long, lean athlete, Gilbert weighed under 230lbs at Colorado standing 6-3. He's a day three/UDFA type with special teams ability, I don't know if he can play at his size though.
Alvin Kamara, RB, Tennessee
Kamara is getting first round chatter which means AZ would have to like him at 45. Kamara is a great combo back, similar to David Johnson, maybe his stock rising is why the Cardinals brought back Andre Ellington.
Nico Siragusa, G, San Diego State
Love Nico, he's a complete mauler who loves to be physical and nasty. He offers quite a bit in the run game and has the strength to hold off physical pass rushers, he could have some problems early on with interior athletes, but his upside is real.
Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson
Mike Williams, WR, Clemson
I've said my part on Williams, the question was likely why didn't he want to run at the combine? How's the neck? Can you separate in the NFL? He's a slower Michael Floyd right now, he can be more than that, it just matters if he reaches it.
