Arizona Cardinals: 5 possibilities in first round of NFL Draft
DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame
The argument against Kizer from some has been if he couldn’t start a full season in college, how does one expect him to become a starter in the NFL? That’s the beauty, he doesn’t have to start right away.
Kizer was thrown into the fire in 2015 after Notre Dame’s Mailk Zaire was injured very early in the season. Kizer’s 2015 season was better than 2016, though the stats actually make it appear otherwise.
He throws were crisper and better looking and more consistent in 2015. He had 21 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 2015. He threw for 2,884-yards and had a completion rate of 62.9 percent.
He threw for 2,925-yards with 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 2016. He had a completion rate of 58.7 percent.
He is projected to be a mid to late first-rounder, so a good chance he is still on the board at 13. Is he one of the six to seven good arms in the draft Arians alluded to the other day?
