The fact that they got a player like Johnathan “Rudy” Ford just makes it all the sweeter.
You see, Ford was a nice safety, with good size and speed, but the Arizona Cardinals see Johnathan Ford, or Rudy from here on out, as another hybrid cornerback in their defense.
You may roll your eyes at the idea of another cornerback project, but the Cardinals are taking athletes and working them into their defense.
It may or may not turn out well, but it is a new and inventive way to get talented players on the field.
Rudy Ford is one of those players.
In his hype video that Auburn sent out shortly after the draft, you can see just what excites the Arizona Cardinals, as he shows good coverage skills, excellent tackling ability and a physicality that is hard to find in corners.
Cardinals fans, get hyped about Rudy Ford.
