For all the waiting it may have been a bit anticlimactic, as the Cardinals took Zaven Collins with the 16th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Despite not being a surprise, and maybe receiving a lukewarm reaction due to the fact he had been predicted by so many to be the pick, fans like the pick.
According to the newest SB Nation Reacts post, Cardinals fans overwhelmingly liked the pick of Collins.
44% of fans gave the pick and “A” while 38% of fans gave the pick a “B”.
Meaning the overall thought on the pick was 82% liked the pick.
12% of fans gave the pick a “C” which I imagine is the pick was fine but were hoping for something more/different.
The final 6% of fans giving it a “D” I would imagine are just done with drafting off ball linebackers early as Collins marks the fifth off ball linebacker taken in the first 45 picks in the Steve Keim era.
Overall, fans are excited about the pick.
