Ranking the Arizona Cardinals 2019 rookies off of their NFL comparisons
These three players fell short of making the list as none earned more than three NFL player comparisons. While that may be alarming, it shouldn’t. They are each late seventh-round picks and are likely viewed as gambles or development projects for the Cardinals.
Joshua Miles – OT
Player comparison: Kent Perkins (Matt Miller)
The lack of comparisons for Miles shouldn’t be surprising. Coming from Morgan State, Miles in an under-the-radar prospect. However, at 6-foot-5 and 314-pounds with 35-5/8-inch-arms, he has an ideal build to play left tackle. But, as it currently stands, he’s a developmental project that will likely see time on the practice squad.
Michael Dogbe – IDL
Player comparison: Mario Edwards Jr. (Matt Miller), John Franklin-Myers (Lance Zierlein)
Dogbe has earned comparisons to two rotational defensive line pieces, and that’s exactly what he’s expected to be. The Temple product is a tweener for 3-4 end or tackle at 6-foot-3 and 284-pounds, but he was productive in college. Pro Football Focus gave him an excellent 84.5 run-defense grade.
Caleb Wilson – TE
Player comparison: Jacob Tamme (Matt Miller)
Running a 4.58 second 40-yard-dash, Wilson may be one of the fastest tight ends currently in the NFL. But, his poor blocking and top-heavy 6-foot-4, 240-pound frame played in an impact in him being nearly undraftable. But, he’s a high upside receiving tight end prospect that has played in high-powered offenses in the past. Jacob Tamme is an appropriate comparison; a solid, but nothing special option.
