I just purchased Lindy’s 2020 Pro Football Draft publication (one of my favorites) and this year they offered NFL player comps on every one of the top draft prospects they highlighted.
This, I combed through all of the comps are these are the prospects Lindy’s compared to current Arizona Cardinals’ players.
I am fascinated with these comps and I thought you might be too. I thought I would give you the visuals so you can judge for yourselves.
QB Jordan Love (Utah St.): Pro comparison: Brett Hundley, Arizona Cardinals.
RB Brian Herrien (Georgia): Pro comparison: Kenyan Drake, Arizona Cardinals
WR Denzel Mims: Pro comparison: Hakeem Butler, Arizona Cardinals
TE Jared Pinkney (Vanderbilt): Pro comparison: Maxx Williams, Arizona Cardinals
TE Hunter Bryant (Washington): Pro comparison: Charles Clay, Arizona Cardinals
ILB Malik Harrison (Ohio St.): Pro comparison: De’Vondre Campbell, Arizona Cardinals
LB Michael Pinckney (Miami): Pro comparison: Keishawn Bierria, Arizona Cardinals
Edge Josh Uche (Michigan); Pro comparison: Kylie Fitts, Arizona Cardinals
CB Darnay Holmes (UCLA): Pro comparison: Robert Alford, Arizona Cardinals
S K’Von Wallace (Clemson): Pro comparison: Budda Baker, Arizona Cardinals
- This is a testament to how well Steve Keim is adding key depth pieces to the roster, especially when you consider where these prospects are expected to come off the board in this year’s draft.
- Per CBS Sports’ post recent 7 Round Mock Draft, here is where the prospects were taken:
21—-Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
23—-Jordan Love, QB, Utah St.
52—-Josh Uche, Edge, Michigan
65—-Malik Harrison, ILB, Ohio St.
70—-K’Von Wallace, S, Clemson
107—-Hunter Bryant, TE, Washington
121—-Darnay Holmes, CB, UCLA
207—-Jared Pinkney, TE, Vanderbilt
229—-Michael Pinckney, LB, Miami
UCFA—-Brian Herrien, RB, Georgia
- My favorites here for the Cardinals in Day 2 and Day 3 are Josh Uche, Malik Harrison, K’Von Wallace, Hunter Bryant, Darnay Holmes and Jared Pinkney.
- Contest—-if you have a copy of Lindy’s 2020 Pro Football Draft, then you should recuse yourself. For those who do not—-guess Lindy’s player comps for:
- Tristan Wirfs, T, Iowa
- K.J. Hamler, WR, Penn St.
- Logan Stenberg, G, Kentucky
- Alton Robinson, DE, Syracuse
- Shaquille Quaterman, ILB, Miami
Hint: Wirfs, Hamler and Quarteman are comped to former Cardinals’ draft picks who are no longer on the team, and Stenberg and Robinson are comped to two UFAs who were on the Cardinals within the last 2-3 years.
- What are you thoughts about Lindy’s comps to the Cardinals players?
