Arizona Cardinals: Mock Draft 2.0
I do not think that Arizona will target a receiver until later in the 2017 NFL Draft for two reasons: Arians is content with the current WR room, and Keim has had success picking receivers late. If Arians is content with the current room, why target Reynolds? He has the size (6’3″) and speed (4.52 second 40) to one day replace Larry Fitzgerald.
According to NFLDraftScout.com, Reynolds has been timed running as low as a 4.42 in the 40-yard dash. The only knocks toward the tall wide receiver is his weight (194 lbs) and the fact that he was suspended a game at A&M for violating team rules. If he can put on about 10 pounds of muscle and comply by teams rules, Reynolds will be making an impact on Sundays.
When it comes to late-round success at the WR position, Keim has hit on both John Brown and J.J. Nelson in the mid-to-late rounds of the draft. Who’s to say he cannot do it again?
