What the Arizona Cardinals did in the 2020 NFL Draft is still being discussed and one thing we’ve seen talked about a lot is the value they were able to get.

That value mostly lies in one pick the Arizona Cardinals made, because it was viewed by many pundits as the biggest need on the roster.

That’s why when Matt Bowen listed his best values and steals of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Cardinals third round pick was mentioned and praised.

From E$PN:

Josh Jones, OT, Arizona Cardinals

Selected: Round 3, No. 72 overall, out of Houston

"After passing on both Jedrick Wills Jr. and Tristan Wirfs at No. 8 overall in the first round, the Cardinals still had a major need for offensive tackle help. And they get that here with Jones in the third round. The Houston offensive tackle has the movement skills to climb to the second level in Kliff Kingsbury’s run game, and I like the upside here in pass protection. Jones has athletic traits, footwork and balance."

We’ve discussed Jones quite a bit and the fact that he could be the best tackle in this class. He has a good knowledge of the Kliff Kingsbury offense as well, so we’ll see how it goes, but it is good to continue to see the Arizona Cardinals 2020 draft class be praised.
