The Arizona Cardinals are doing their due diligence at the NFL Scouting Combine
They have greater needs than a receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft but with so many wanting the Arizona Cardinals to draft on in the first round and the fact that well, they are good, they met with the top receivers available in this year’s draft.
This doesn’t mean the Cardinals have CeeDee Lamb and Jerry Jeudy at the top of their board. This means they were among the first participants at the NFL Scouting Combine this week and the team met with each of them.
Sure, there’s going to be intrigue and interest to some extent. The Cardinals would be dumb not to at least meet with these players.
However some took it to believe the Cardinals were leaning towards taking a receiver with the number 8 pick in the draft should one of them be available. No, that’s not what that means.
However based on some comments made by Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury on Tuesday from Indianapolis do make it even more likely they will include a receiver in their discussions about what to do with their first round selection. Kingsbury talked about the development of right tackle Justin Murray.
From the sounds of it, they are happy with his progression and consider him the front runner for the starting position. That would make it seem less likely they would take a tackle in the first round.
It’s still all a guessing game. The Cardinals will meet with a lot of players this week. None of it means they will be taking or not taking said player.
Teams would be remiss if they didn’t do their homework. Are the Cardinals going to take a quarterback in the draft? Not likely, but it doesn’t mean they won’t talk to some during the week.
