Brevin Jordan could’ve been interesting in the Arizona Cardinals re-draft.
Jordan, a tight end out of the University of Miami went later in the 5th round, but given how desperate the Cardinals are at the tight end position, It makes sense why they pick Jordan in the Arizona Cardinals re-draft. Jordan’s ability to be fast out of breaks along with being able to take a big hit post-catch are just some of the positives about him. However, his blocking is not anywhere near what’s desired in the NFL, and he gives routes away with body language as soon as the ball is snapped.
This is a fourth round tight end, so expectations for him wouldn’t be high to make the roster, but Kingsbury has shown that these are his kind of tight ends that he’ll most likely will never use. Bring Jordan in regardless.

Why Marco Wilson shouldn’t have been drafted
Despite being one of the four true freshmen to ever start for the Gators and his older brother’s time in the NFL, Wilson’s best season came in that freshman year. Wilson suffers man coverage issues and the Texas A&M game was a prime example of that.
DK Metcalf is smiling about this matchup if it’s there. An ineffective punch to jam receivers at the line also makes his chances of making a play on the ball harder as he works to recover.
Finally, you can say I’m living in the past on this one, but I just can’t get over the whole shoe-throwing incident against LSU. After what Dre Kirkpatrick did last year in attempting to punch Metcalf, the secondary cannot afford to have guys who resort to this and make critical mistakes at the worst times.
This Arizona Cardinals re-draft more accurately reflects the win-now mode of the team. By addressing needs instead of best player available, the team is now more well-rounded than it was before and has lesser weaknesses. This draft should have been about raising the team’s floor, and not their ceiling. Because this team is capable of being great, as they started 6-2.
Finishing at 8-8 and missing the playoffs in embrassing fashion means the floor is pretty low. Raise the floor, not the roof, and let’s see what this team does headed into the 2021 season.
