The Arizona Cardinals are just a little over 24 hours away from drafting the 29th pick of the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft
Will they or won’t they? I’m talking about the Arizona Cardinals keeping their 29th pick in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The draft gets underway on Thursday evening at 5 p.m. Arizona time. Rounds two and three will be Friday evening and rounds four through seven will be on Saturday.
The Arizona Cardinals have said they won’t draft for need, however can they get the best available and still have it be one of their needs? Absolutely. Only if his name is Ryan Kelly from Alabama. If it isn’t, then either get the best available or move the pick for more picks down the road.
A lot could happen between tonight and tomorrow night. Who knows? The Cardinals may not even own a first round pick by the time the draft starts. Something tells me though they will be making their pick and they already know exactly who they want. In general manager Steve Keim and head coach Bruce Arians we trust.
The Cardinals will hold a draft party on Thursday evening. It takes place starting at 5 p.m. on the Great Lawn at University of Phoenix Stadium.
