Arizona Cardinals 2017 NFL Draft: RaisingZona Staff Projections
Round three has talent available and the good teams find quality talent there
Vance Meek – Juju Smith-Schuster, WR: Having a big target who can go up and get the ball is never a bad thing. Smith-Schuster has length and strength, making him a terrific option on day two. He’s not blazing fast, but the Cardinals already have speed receivers.
Jim Koch – Amara Darboh, WR: Larry Fitzgerald will be retiring soon and Michael Floyd is gone, so the offense can use some size at wideout. Darboh provides the Cardinals with a big target (6’2″, 215) who has good hands, and can block.
Joseph Comeau – Teez Tabor, CB: The two biggest questions with cornerback Teez Tabor are associated with his deep speed, and questions about his character. Tabor ran a 4.62 40-yard dash at the combine, though teams may overlook this based on his tape. His character also raises eyebrows, but the Cardinals have shown a willingness to draft players who made youthful mistakes. The Cardinals held a private workout with Tabor, so there’s clearly interest on their part.
Isaiah Addair – Rasul Douglas, CB: I am a big fan of Douglas. Leading the NCAA with 8 INTs last year, he will likely slip into round three due to his slower 40 time and a deep CB class. He has he size at 6’2″ and 209 pounds to compete for the starting spot opposite of Peterson.
Joseph Vasquez – Josh Reynolds, WR: Reynolds is a big target and consistent. At 6’3″, he has the skill set to become a successful receiver in the league.
