This was to be expected as the Arizona Cardinals have selected a quarterback in the fourth round, electing to go with Logan Thomas out of Virginia Tech at the 120th overall pick.

This seems to be a very good pick seeing the Cardinals have all of the tutelage needed for a young  quarterback to be developed starting with head coach Bruce Arians and coordinator Tom Moore, whom has had their share of grooming great signal callers.

Thomas is in good hands and with his skill set he should make a good solid NFL quarterback as he fits the mold standing at 6’6 and 250 pounds, with a strong arm and a very quick release, and has the ability to extend plays. He also has good speed for a big man and can get out of the pocket and make plays with his feet and arm, as he had 11 rushing touchdowns at Virginia Tech.

Thomas is compared to big Ben as a pocket passer and Cam Newton as mobile passer, two good comparisons that give the Cardinals something they never had since Jake Plummer, an athletic quarterback.
