NFL Draft Grades 2020: Re-grading the Arizona Cardinals draft three years later
By Sion Fawkes
Overall Grade: C
It’s April 2023, and four of the six picks are still on the roster. Plus, to be fair, Eno Benjamin should still be here. That makes this draft class look like a better haul than it actually is, since not a single player listed above met expectations.
Isaiah Simmons has come the closest, but he has yet to put in a consistent 16, or these days, 17-game season. However, he’s improved to the point that 2023 can be his breakout year.
Josh Jones hasn’t locked down a starting spot, but he’s a fair backup and a capable starter, despite his on-field mistakes. Leki Fotu and Rashard Lawrence could, and should, be doing better, but that hasn’t been the case.
Evan Weaver never stuck long-term, and as mentioned, former coach Kliff Kingsbury never should have cut Benjamin. So what do you think? How would you have graded the Arizona Cardinals 2020 draft class?
