Arizona Cardinals 2017 NFL Draft Prospect Vote: Haason Reddick or Tre’Davious White

New, comments

Which prospect do you want at 13 for the Arizona Cardinals?

NCAA Football:  Florida at Louisiana State Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

With only 11 days until the 2017 NFL Draft we are on our way to having the Revenge of the Birds Big Board for the Arizona Cardinals.

Through six votes, we have:

Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan
Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama
Jonathan Allen, DL, Alabama
Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State
Jamal Adams, S, LSU
Patrick Mahomes II, QB, Texas Tech

Honestly, I am pretty happy with the board so far.

Today is a different type of vote… it's elimination day.

Meaning we bring back two of our contestants from last week and they go head to head. No position battles, this is just the losers trying to make the final 18 cut.

Polls on the weekend get a little closer to 48 hours, so Monday night at 11:59pm PST we will have our winner.

Tre’Davious White, CB, LSU - No corner in this draft has as much experience playing in a defense like the Arizona Cardinals run as White. He is a talented press corner who can play consistently with his hands and mirror well with his feet.

The concern on White is, can he play outside in the NFL? Is he a slot guy or will he be able to play against bigger, longer and faster players?

Haason Reddick, LB, Temple - No one had a more productive Senior Bowl than Haason Reddick, then the combine confirmed what many were already saying, Reddick is a day one player. Now the question is, is he the best linebacker in this class?

The athletic testing, the size and the ability to win from multiple positions has many thinking so, from Justis Mosqueda:

I think that if you're going to be a first-round linebacker you need to drop into coverage well or get after the passer well. You don't drop a first-round pick on a someone dropping into short zones in the middle of the field. Reddick had tackles for losses on both sides of fly sweeps (boundary/field) at Temple regularly as a penetrator. His background as a former cornerback shows up in coverage on wheel routes, etc. Think he's my favorite LB since Shazier. Very similar. That's my type.

Reddick will have to transition to playing more off the ball, which could take some time, but his physical talents lend him to be an early pick who has time to figure it out.
