Arizona Cardinals view off-the-field issues important in drafting playersDarren Urban of AZCardinals.com

"But injuries tend to be an easier read than other off-field problems. And not all off-field issues are created equal – problems with marijuana are different than, say, the assault incident of Oklahoma wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham (who also has dealt with marijuana problems) or the behavioral issues of talented cornerback Marcus Peters, who was kicked off Washington’s team because of repeated conflicts with coaches."

T.J. Yeldon makes a nice fit for the Arizona CardinalsAdam Green of arizonasports.com

"The Arizona Cardinals have been linked to each runner fairly often, though the question of whether one will even be available when they are on the clock at 24 is a valid one.However, even if one of them is there for the taking at 24, there is a strong possibility the Cardinals will pass in favor of a different position.This is, after all, one of the deepest running back classes in years, and the Cardinals may decide they can find a capable runner in the later rounds, freeing them up to spend their top pick on someone else."

Arizona Cardinals could draft Owamagbe OdighizuwaDan Schmelzer of NFL Spin Zone

"If they decide to take a pass rush prospect in the first round, I think the Cardinals would be better off targeting Owamagbe Odighizuwa.On top of having an incredibly difficult name to spell and pronounce, Odighizuwa appears to have major upside as a pass rusher at the next level.At 6-foot-3, 267 pounds, Odighizuwa has nice size for the position. He has great length, power and natural athleticism on the outside. Odighizuwa shows a great burst off of the line of scrimmage, and has an impressive array of speed and power moves."

Considering team needs for the short and long term, we’ve created a big board at five critical positions. Every position of need has a list of candidates that fit the Cardinals’ trait preferences."
