Arizona Cardinals: 10 best moves in Steve Keim era
2. Drafting Josh Rosen
After avoiding selecting a franchise quarterback of the future for the first several drafts, Keim finally made a great quarterback selection in the 2018 NFL Draft. He traded up to get UCLA quarterback Rosen with the 10th pick of the first round.
It was a bit shocking that he fell that far, but off the field antics were rumored to be an issue with some. There was also a question on arm strength.
However most experts ranked him as the most NFL ready quarterback in this draft. The Cardinals didn’t have to give up the farm to get Rosen.
Sure, he will still have to step out onto the field and prove his worth, however on paper, this has been once great pick for Keim. Now the question will be how soon before we see him in a regular season game?
The Cardinals signed veteran Sam Bradford, who is the current announced starter. However given his injury history, there is a good chance we may see Rosen play in 2018.
