The Arizona Cardinals got their second receiver of the 2019 NFL Draft
The receiver room is now full. The Arizona Cardinals went out and selected another receiver in Hakeem Butler out of Iowa State with the first pick of the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft on Saturday morning.
Butler caught 60 passes last season for 1,318-yards and nine touchdowns. There were some questions about him that caused him to fall a bit but make no mistake, Butler will be productive.
The selection also means the Cardinals should be stocked up once Larry Fitzgerald is ready to retire. Now, that said, having Fitz around for at least one year with the likes of Butler and the team’s second round pick Andy Isabella from UMass on Friday night should help set up this room for years to come.
A number of Cardinals fans will be happy to have Butler. Many have been calling for the Cardinals to select Butler for the last two days.
Now they will have a receiver room that looks like this:
That’s 12 receivers not counting any others they may bring in as undrafted free agents. With coach Kliff Kingsbury‘s offense combined with special teams, don’t be surprised to see seven of these guys make the final roster.
This doesn’t even include running back David Johnson, who again is expected to contribute greatly in the passing game. Quarterback Kyler Murray is going to have a lot of targets to throw too.
Now that the receiver room is full, attention may be drawn to the offensive line. The Cardinals still haven’t addressed it in this draft.
