Overall reviews on Arizona’s draft are positiveKent Somers of azcentral.com

"Anyone charged with evaluating an NFL draft wisely issues the disclaimer that the quality of a team’s draft should be judged after a few years, not a few hours.That seems especially applicable to the class the Cardinals drafted Thursday through Saturday. It’s filled with late bloomers, players from small schools and others who are big names only in their neighborhoods.Overall, the Cardinals draft received favorable reviews from national writers. ESPN’s Mel Kiper, Jr., is the only below who thought it was no better than average."

"The drafting of Northern Iowa running back David Johnson isn’t likely to reduce Andre Ellington‘s opportunities with the Arizona Cardinals.At least not according to coach Bruce Arians, who told reporters, per ESPN.com: “I think Andre will continue his same role. We’ll keep him healthy and let him continue to develop as a player, but the nice thing David can do is he can do everything Andre does, so you don’t have to change if there was an injury.”"
