Quentin Johnston, WR/TCU
If the Arizona Cardinals trade DeAndre Hopkins AND trade back in the 2023 Draft to acquire more picks, there is a good chance they could select Quentin Johnston somewhere between the eighth and twelfth selection. After logging just 55 receptions in his first two seasons with the Horned Frogs, Johnston turned heads in 2022, amassing 60 catches, 1,069 yards, and 6 touchdowns.
Hopkins is a big target for the Cards, and it would cause a major void if the Redbirds moved him. At 6’4 and 193lb, Johnston would immediately fill that need. Plus, he would complement well with the 5’9 Marquise Brown. Overall, he’d be an outstanding fit in the desert.
Broderick Jones, T/Georgia
The Arizona Cardinals may opt to build the offensive line through free agency or even by re-signing their own players. Those like Kelvin Beachum could easily wind up back in a cardinal and white uniform, but in the event it doesn’t happen, Monti Ossenfort and David Sears must turn to the NFL Draft.
One player they must look at is Broderick Jones. He protected Stetson Bennett’s blind side with the Bulldogs, but with D.J. Humphries still with the Redbirds, expect the Cards to slide Jones to the right side if they snag him. Like Johnston, Jones would only be a possibility if the Cards traded back to the middle of the first.
