Arizona Cardinals: Quarterbacks take center stage at Combine on Saturday


The Arizona Cardinals possibly could look at a quarterback in middle rounds of the 2016 NFL Draft

As the quarterbacks take the stage at the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine on Saturday, the question remains with Cardinals fans whether the Cardinals will take a quarterback in this year’s draft?  Some want the Cardinals to reach high for someone in the first round.

As much as I like guys like Carson Wentz from North Dakota State and Jared Goff from California, it just isn’t going to happen.  Now, finding someone in later rounds?  Maybe. The Cardinals won’t do anything like trade up for one of those two guys though.  They aren’t can’t miss guys.

However, with some others in the draft like Christian Hackenberg from Penn State, Vernon Adams from Oregon, and Paxton Lynch from Memphis, maybe.

Right. And who was that guy? That would be Matt Leinart in 2006 at number 10 of the first round. How did that one work out for the Cardinals?

Not a bad idea because Jones can be a threat elsewhere if not a quarterback because of his athleticism. However I think if the Cardinals are going to take a shot at a quarterback in the draft, it needs to be a true quarterback.

Kevin Hogan from Stanford and Dax Prescott from Mississippi State are two other guys I would at least look at.  I don’t think either guy fits the Cardinals offensive system though. Some think Connor Cook from Michigan State as well.  I’m not in that boat though.

The fastest 40-yard-dash times from Saturday are Jeff Driskel from Louisiana Tech (4.56), Trevone Boykin from TCU (4.77), Wentz (4.78), Hackenberg (4.78), and Hogan and Cook (4.79 each).
