It’s day two of the 2019 NFL Draft for the Arizona Cardinals, who went quarterback with their number one selection in Kyler Murray
There are so many possibilities out there for the Arizona Cardinals on day two of the 2019 NFL Draft, who knows what they will do. After losing out on the possibility of receiver N’Keal Harry to the New England Patriots with the last pick of the first round, that doesn’t necessarily mean they will go receiver with the number 33 pick overall, number one of the second round.
Here are some guys that are possibilities. There are players that can be considered best available and fill a need. Our co-expert Avery talked about some this morning but some of those guys the Cardinals likely won’t be interested in.
First, don’t count on D.K. Metcalf. Word is the Cardinals aren’t interested in him. While they should definitely draft a receiver, it won’t be him.
Maybe they can wait on a receiver until the third round? How about offensive line?
Best available in that spot is Jawaan Taylor, tackle from Florida. While I would have loved to have seen center Garrett Bradbury from N.C. State fall to the Cardinals, the Minnesota Vikings took him at 19.
Avery did have a good suggestion in tight end Irv Smith from Alabama. He is someone I brought up leading up to the draft. The Cardinals can’t go wrong there at this point.
Center Erik McCoy, center from Texas A&M sounds like could be a good fit in Arizona. He’s projected as a middle-second rounder. Could this be part of why the Cardinals are trying to trade down a bit according to reports?
For the third round, go get that receiver. Deebo Samuel is a decent choice out of South Carolina. Parris Campbell from Ohio State would be another. If not a receiver here, maybe they stick with offensive line?
Guard Dru Samia from Oklahoma would be perfect. They’d get the added bonus of him having been part of Murray’s offensive line. Question is will Samia drop far enough for him to be there at the top of the third round? We shall see.
