The Arizona Cardinals are almost done with the 2018 NFL Draft.

After being the first to sign their 2018 1st Round pick with Josh Rosen, they signed all three of their day three picks in Chase Edmonds, Christian Campbell and Korey Cunningham.

Now, they have signed second round pick, wide receiver Christian Kirk.

From the team:

Kirk (5-11, 200) had 234 receptions for 2,856 yards and 26 touchdowns during his three seasons at Texas A&M. A Scottsdale, AZ native who attended Saguaro High School, Kirk also had 37 punt returns for 814 yards and six touchdowns, 23 carries for 120 yards and 48 kickoff returns for 1,048 yards and a touchdown. He left school as the NCAA’s active career leader in punt return average (22.0) and punt return touchdowns (six). Despite only playing three seasons, his 234 career receptions are third in SEC history and second in Texas A&M history. Kirk earned All-SEC first-team honors as a returner and all-purpose player in both 2016 and 2017 and added first-team all-conference honors as a wide receiver as a junior in 2016. He was the only player in school history to have consecutive seasons of 80+ receptions (80 in 2015 and 83 in 2016).

For the Cardinals, that means only offensive lineman Mason Cole remains unsigned and we are not even to June yet.

Let’s get to work Mr. Kirk.
