Arizona Cardinals: 2016 NFL Draft grades
By Scott Allen
Evan Boehm, C, Missouri
Why he fits in Arizona: The Cardinals get an SEC center. He’s played against quality competition. One scouting report indicated he was very good at redirecting those he blocks.
Why he might not fit in Arizona: According to CBSSports.com, he relies too much on upper body strength. His lower body strength needs work, which means having difficulty reaching for blocks.
Grade: B+. He still should fight for a starting spot in Arizona given the Cardinals current situation at center. His main competition will be A.Q. Shipley. Shipley though hasn’t been consistent enough to be called the full time starter. Don’t be surprised to see this competition go down until the end of camp. Good pickup for the Cardinals.
