The tackle out of Texas possesses outstanding size at 6’7, 309lb. And as mentioned in the previous post, the Cardinals should at least consider targeting right tackle with the top pick. It’s not the flashy pick. But given their difficulties up front in 2019, a right tackle is necessary.
In a perfect world, the team re-signs Kelvin Beachum and retains Marcus Gilbert for at least another season. And while both can start in a timeshare at right tackle, neither figure to be long-term fixes. And at this point in their careers, they’re better off as role players. That’s where Cosmi comes in.
The Cardinals may forgo targeting a right tackle in the early rounds since they have Josh Jones on the roster. However, Jones rarely played, indicating he may not have shown enough to fill in at what was a weaker right tackle spot in 2019.
As with many tackles taken in the first round, Cosmi would likely be considered a left tackle. However, given the presence of D.J. Humphries, the Cardinals can swing him around to the right-hand side and hopefully set him there as long as Humphries remains a Cardinal.
