With the Arizona Cardinals and the NFL Draft a mere 12 days away, the Arizona Cardinals and the rest of the league are closing up shop on their private visits and getting ready to get down to the nitty gritty.
That begs the questions, who have the Arizona Cardinals had in for their 30 prospect visits? Through Walter Football and Twitter, here are the names that we know have met with the Arizona Cardinals on official 30 visits.
Private Workout (Counts against teams 30 visits)
- Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State
- Nick Bosa, Edge, Ohio State
- Marcus Green, WR, Louisiana-Monroe
- Daniel Jones, QB, Duke
- Dawson Knox, TE, Ole Miss
- Erik McCoy, C, Texas A&M
- Shareef Miller, Edge, Penn State
- Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma
- Darnell Savage, S, Maryland
- Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State
- Devin Singletary, RB, Florida Atlantic
- Lexington Thomas, RB, UNLV
- Darwin Thompson, RB, Utah State
- Marquez Tucker, OT, Southern Utah
- Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama
Now, we have 15 names and a bunch of them make sense.
Obviously the big three: Murray, Williams and Bosa.
Then you have players at need positions in rounds two and on: Green, Knox, McCoy, Miller, Simmons, and Tucker.
The weird ones are the amount of safeties and running backs they have brought in.
Now, safeties is a little not weird, when you consider the fact that D.J. Swearinger only has one year left on his contract, but boy would that be a Steve Keim move to invest another premium pick, top 50, on a safety, where players like Abrams and Savage are expected to go.
The even odder ones are the running backs. The Cardinals have a stable full, but these all are guys who have flourished in spread and air raid style offense... Two are likely undrafted free agents in Thomas and Thompson, but could the Cardinals really spend another day three pick on a running back in Singletary?
Remember also, a player like N’Keal Harry does not count against your official 30 because he is a local product.
Those are the names we have so far, what sticks out to you?
