Andy Isabella, Hakeem Butler, KeeSean Johnson
Keim went all-out in 2019 after he drafted Kyler Murray with the first overall pick. But so far, the trio of Isabella, Butler, and Johnson has been mixed to negative.
Isabella and Johnson have had their moments. However, Isabella has logged just 30 catches in 2 seasons for 413 yards and 3 receiving touchdowns. He wasn’t the deep threat Keim thought he was getting.
Johnson didn’t go until the sixth round and it’s clear he was drafted for depth. However, he has outplayed Isabella in terms of production, having logged 36 receptions for 360 yards and a touchdown. You can argue that Isabella holds the edge in yards per catch and receiving yards. However, Johnson is a true possession receiver as opposed to Isabella’s speed.
Hakeem Butler, the 235lb receiver from Iowa State, has yet to make the slightest dent after 2 seasons. The Cardinals had high hopes for him, but he was cut following training camp. He has since bounced around the league.
Grade: C- – Butler was a bust and Isabella hasn’t lived to his billing. However, Johnson has been decent considering his draft status. Both Isabella and Johnson remain with the team and can still turn their careers in the right direction.
