The NFL Scouting Combine gets underway in Indianapolis for the Arizona Cardinals and other 31 teams on Tuesday
Now it is time to start meeting the next generation of NFL players. The Arizona Cardinals will join the other 31 NFL teams this week to scout, interview, and talk about the players trying to get drafted this upcoming April.
While the Scouting Combine doesn’t see it’s first workout until this Friday March 1st on the field with offensive linemen, running backs, special teams, and place kickers, there is other activity. That activity includes coaches and general managers talking to the media.
For the Cardinals, coach Kliff Kingsbury and general manager Steve Keim will talk to the media on Wednesday. Kingsbury is scheduled at 8:30 a.m. and Keim is scheduled to talk at 9 a.m. Arizona time.
It should be interesting to see what they have to say. This will be the first time we get any idea of what the Cardinals will be looking for.
We know what the Cardinals need in this upcoming draft but it will be interesting to hear Kingsbury and Keim talk through the process. Kingsbury has now been on the job for coming up on two months at the end of next week.
Most view this season as Keim’s last chance to put together a decent draft. He’s had what looked like good drafts but the last couple of kind have fallen apart.
With his off the field issues, many fans already wished Keim was gone. Many aren’t sure what to make of Kingsbury yet.
Now it’s time to evaluate talent. It’s time to get to know the guys that will be drafted on April 25th-27th. The Combine has the ability to make or break certain players depending on how it goes on and off the field.
Cardinals should be looking at offensive line, defensive line, receiver, safety, cornerback, and tight end. The Cardinals should do their due diligence and look at quarterbacks but unless someone blows them away, they should stay with what they have.
