The Arizona Cardinals completed their draft by taking a cornerback in the sixth round and tackle in the seventh round
If the Arizona Cardinals didn’t get it right this year, then they may never get it right under general manager Steve Keim. The Cardinals not only were able to plug some holes but also plug them with some very good players from the 2018 NFL Draft.
The Cardinals had a great draft overall from top to bottom. Keim has made some very good picks in the past but this year every player selected has a chance to make an impact either this year or very soon thereafter.
Day One (First round)
The first round was where this draft would be make or break. The made it all right. Keim jumped up from 15 to 10 without having to give away a lot in return.
The Oakland Raiders were happy to take just a third and fifth round pick from this year’s draft, plus the number 15, in return for the number 10.
With the selection, the Cardinals went and got their quarterback of the future. They selected Josh Rosen out of UCLA. Many considered him the best overall quarterback in the draft.
He fell due to a couple of reasons. His off field antics and a series of past concussions may have had some shying away. Plus the other quarterbacks taken ahead of him may have been better fits for where they landed.
