After a busy Tuesday where I was unable to update the situation or get a poll posted, we now have two today.
Through nine 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
Malik McDowell, DL, Michigan State
Haason Reddick, LB, Temple
Jabrill Peppers, DB, Michigan
That is a good looking nine man board so far. We can double it over the next eight days though. Hopefully once we have those 18 names, we will be happy with the pick.
O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama - Howard is one of the better prospects in this draft in my opinion, but it is really hard for me to see the Cardinals invest more at the tight end position.
Howard offers a blend of size, speed, and athleticism with a willingness and ability to block few players have.
- The Cardinals just paid a premium to keep Jermaine Gresham.
- The Cardinals do not utilize the tight end position a lot.
- Drafting Howard at 13 would have the Cardinals investing over $10 million the next couple of years in the tight end position.
Is Howard the type of unique talent you have to draft, or is the cost to prohibitive with too many options later on that will be able to contribute in the same manner?
John Ross, WR, Washington - While I would never advise drafting a wide receiver high, no player in draft history has fit the billing of what Bruce Arians wants in a wide receiver than Ross.
Ross has unique speed, but he has also been ultra productive and can win from anywhere on the field with the ball in his hands.
Two things worry you about Ross.
- Drafting any wide receiver early.
- Ross’ knees are made of paper mache.

For a 22 year old.
Yall like this guy 5th overall???
If Ross was 100% healthy through his career, I’d still have pause at 13, but with that injury history, it becomes even more precarious.
Who do you vote for?
Which player for the Arizona Cardinals at 13?
