The news and rumors coming out on the 2018 NFL Draft will be hot and heavy over the next six hours and into the actual draft, here is what is being said about the Arizona Cardinals, who pick 15th... Maybe.
Albert Breer MMQB:
15. ARIZONA CARDINALS
(CB, WR, QB) Another trade-up candidate, and if a quarterback slips into the bottom of the top 10, I think they’d get aggressive. Just like Buffalo, there’s some pressure on GM Steve Keim to solidify the position going forward. Offensive line is another area they’d like to address, and McGlinchey’s a name they’ve been connected to.
9. (TRADE) Arizona Cardinals (via SF) - QB Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma - Steve Keim called a quarterback search the “holy grail” for an NFL organization.
Arizona Cardinals: The front office loves Baker Mayfield, according to a rival general manager. A trade up would need to happen to secure the Oklahoma quarterback, but after passing on a deal last year to get Patrick Mahomes, general manager Steve Keim might be motivated to get his guy.
Mike Jurecki is hearing buzz the Cardinals could move up, but confirms Breer report on McGlinchey if he slides:
Hearing the Cardinals are willing to move up for the right price and depending on who slides, otherwise stay at 15 with options WR Moore, OT McGlinchey, CB Hughes— Mike Jurecki (@mikejurecki) April 26, 2018
The movement at the top of the draft could be unprecedented:
Hearing Browns will trade 4, but only when they are on the clock, not before the pick and they don't want to go down too far.— Michael Lombardi (@mlombardiNFL) April 26, 2018
In light of the Mayfield news, the Giants have a great opportunity to move down slightly and still get Barkley--if a team like Denver would be interested in Darnold.— Michael Lombardi (@mlombardiNFL) April 26, 2018
Something I talked about on the podcast... The Saints have been talked about as a team that may move up to get a quarterback.
