Let’s look at how the Arizona Cardinals could’ve drafted differently in 2018.
Despite finishing the 2018 season at 3-13, the team had one of the best draft hauls from last years draft. No matter what your thoughts are on Josh Rosen, it’s hard to argue that he wasn’t the right choice at pick ten, and the same can be said for Christian Kirk, and to a certain extent Chase Edmonds. But, what if we had the opportunity to re-draft the 2018 Cardinals class?
Sounds fun, right? Well, there are some rules that must be placed for the re-draft. The first one being that we can’t modify any of their trades. That means Steve Keim still makes the move up to pick ten. The second rule is if the pick is changed it must be a player selected after the original pick. Finally, the third applies to people clamoring for Philip Lindsay and J.C. Jackson to be top picks; undrafted players can be selected in the sixth and seventh rounds only.
Now, with all that being said, hindsight is 20-20. If a pick is different than the original one it’s not necessarily a bad thing, it just means another team drafted a bit better later down the line or simply got themselves a steal. Let’s get to the fantasy.
