Arizona Cardinals Could Be Better Off Trading Pick

With so much guessing going on as to who the Arizona Cardinals may or may not take with their first-round draft pick at number 20, there is a possibility all that guessing is for naught and they end up trading the pick.

Although I still believe the Cards will exercise the pick at 20, with so many unknowns still out there and a lot of good but not necessarily great players available at 20, the Cards could still make that move to trade down or completely out of the first round depending on what’s left in the draft.

Trading down would mean someone scheduled to pick after them is looking to move up to get their guy. That is a possibility.  They could also completely trade out of the first round but I see that less likely to happen than trading down within the first round.  The trade would have to be significant otherwise.

I know many people would like to see the Cards trade out of 20 and even move up.  To me, if you are going to do that, that means you highly covet someone.  Now the Cards have been mum for the most part, like most NFL teams, in what their plans are.  I suspect the Cards will be making their pick at 20 a couple of hours into Thursday night’s first-round.
