Deshone Kizer, Notre Dame
Height: 6-4 Weight: 230
The Notre Dame redshirt sophomore burst onto the scene in 2015 after an injury to Malik Zaire. Kizer lead the Irish to a New Year’s Day bowl. His 2016 season hasn’t been as rosy but there are reasons behind that.
Kizer still appears to be the best available quarterback in the upcoming draft. He fits the Cardinals because of his height and style of play. With the vertical passing game, Kizer is a down the field passer the Cardinals like.
Right now it is tough to say if Kizer will be available by the time the Cardinals make their pick, which right now appears to be mid-first round. The next six weeks will have a lot to say about that though.
Kizer right now is projected as a first or second round pick. I can’t see any scenario where Kizer drops to the second round and could be gone by the time the Cardinals are on the board.
