After watching all of the draft picks on video and grading out each player, the final evaluation of the 2014 draft for the Arizona Cardinals is in. The Cardinals had a very productive draft, they were able to get needs met and also did a good job at taking the best talent on the board at their selection.
Steve Keim and management were able to stick to their plan and even added a draft pick getting two picks in the third round. The heads in the war room did an excellent job of not responding to the fans wants, as they were able to take care of important needs on both sides of the ball.
From round one to round six these prospects were re-evaluated and graded and the final tally was (A-,B+.B, B-,A,C+,C-) on an average would give the Cardinals a solid ( B) for their work in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Good grade over-all considering they didn’t get the flashy big name hyped players, that would have required reaching and making deals that would have lost them picks rather than gaining. It seems the new regime has done it again and the fans in Arizona can still say ” In Keim we trust” lets just see how these players pan out, the scope will be on these guys from day one.
