With the Arizona Cardinals still looking to make moves down in the 2020 NFL Draft one name that could come up depending on the move is that of Brandon Aiyuk from Arizona State.

Aiyuk is a really intriguing prospect that is dealing with a core muscle injury that required surgery recently.

Despite that issue, he had a nice combine workout still and is one of the more interesting second tier of wide receivers in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Aiyuk is a big, physical after the catch monster who is in the same mold as San Francisco 49ers 2019 rookie Deebo Samuel.

Aiyuk is a bit better as a deep threat right now, but they play bully ball in a similar way and they’re the type of receiver who you want to get the ball in their hands.

Aiyuk is also great as a return man, something that is always a bonus for rookie ball carriers or catchers.

Aiyuk only has one big season of production in college and could have some red flags. He’s better in the route than at the catch point. He needs to work on winning the battle catching contested passes.

If he doesn’t, he could be similar to Chris Moore of the Baltimore Ravens who has had a nice career and been a very solid return man, but never broke out as a receiver.

If the Cardinals end up with a second round pick, what would you think about Aiyuk?
