2017 offensive picks
The guys the Cardinals took with offensive needs seemed like very good picks at the time. There was definite excitement once the draft concluded.
Some were wondering who Chad Williams was out of Grambling, but some Arizona fans had already become familiar with him in his huge offensive performance the season prior against the Arizona Wildcats. He has not produced as a third round pick should at this point.
There was running back/kick returner T.J. Logan out of North Carolina. There was a lot of buzz coming from him going into the 2017 season.
He had an exciting kickoff return to start off the Hall of Fame Game against the Dallas Cowboys. It would be the last time he’d touch the ball that season as he broke his wrist on the play.
He was officially done for the season. Starting running back David Johnson would suffer the same injury in week one of the regular season and he too was done for the year.
Offensive lineman Will Holden out of Vanderbilt was one of two offensive linemen the Cardinals drafted. The other was guard Dorian Johnson out of Pittsburgh. Johnson was cut. Holden made the team.
He was eventually cut after training camp last season. However after stops with the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints, he was back in Arizona by the end of November.
All three could go either way with roster decisions depending on how the next four months go. Of the three, Holden seems the most likely to go. The running back position has been left untouched this offseason so far.
