I know, I know, a lot of quarterback talk today, but it is what is being posted around the web, and you know what... It is an interesting conversation to have.
SB Nation’s own Adam Stites did a draft of quarterbacks only, those in the NFL unlike the early article today which looked at college athletes as well.
18. Arizona Cardinals — Mitchell Trubisky
There’s a good chance Arizona would’ve drafted a quarterback in April if they didn’t get scooped by the Chiefs and Texans. Now in the re-draft they get the first rookie quarterback off the board, although the team may be better off finding a bridge starter to give Trubisky time to adjust to the NFL.
This isn’t awful, except, look at some of the names still on the board:
Oh... Carson Palmer as well.
Listen, I am not one to criticize to strongly, but all of these quarterbacks make more sense for the Arizona Cardinals than Trubisky.
Manning, Brady, Big Ben and Brees are self explanatory, but Tannehill and Bortles have some forms of success in the NFL, and Bortles is a name that the Cardinals have been linked too already.
Would Trubisky be a good fit? Sure.
Would I have taken him over the names above? Not a chance.
