Without a second round pick the Arizona Cardinals lack a lot of options for prospects they have met with already.
We’ve talked about Kenneth Murray, Neville Gallimore, Ross Blacklock, and Jonathan Taylor. We’ll get to Brandon Aiyuk, Denzel Mims, and some others as well.
One name that the Cardinals met with early and that looked like a really intriguing prospect for them on day two is Curtis Weaver of Boise State.
Weaver is actually a different type of edge prospect. He’s not as rocked up as most edge prospects are normally and at 6-2 265lbs he’s thick (or is it thicc). Yet, he’s a very good athlete with above average shuttle and change of direction testing and his numbers while at Boise State were absurd.
In three seasons with the Broncos Weaver had 35 sacks and 46.5 tackles for loss.
Those are massive numbers.
When you combine with his testing numbers Weaver actually compares favorably to former first round pick Derek Barnett.
Low end on the scale for Weaver is long time NFL linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu.
It’s a good spectrum of outcomes for Weaver and should make him a lock for the second round. If the Cardinals find a way to move back and add a pick, he’s a name to remember.
