Well the Cardinals need a backup center.

What would be great is for Lecitus Smith to fill a backup center/guard role and for Hayes to backup both guard spots.

If either player becomes a good starter, it's an absolute home run pick in round 6 or 7.

Yep. And if neither player works out and neither are still on the team after the season, no big deal. They're late round picks. Might a well see what we can get out of them.

I heard both our picks were LG in college. And Will Hernandez was okay at LG but terrible at RG. So we have 4 LG and 0 RG.

Is that just how it works? Any G good enough to make the NFL was most likely playing LG? Are there any good RG that come out of college?

I get it and kinda agree to a point.

What I will say is that the interior of the line is kind of similar. Especially moving from LG to C. You aren't really crossing over to the other side and flipping your footwork. The big differences are that at C, you have to be really smart, really quick, and be able to snap. Some of these are easily teachable and some aren't. When it comes to late round picks, making them more versatile is very important for them to stick.

It's not like he is going to get in there and start day 1. He is very likely to go on the practice squad to work at C and then see how he does next year. In the meantime, he will be there if injuries hit us at G.

So, I agree with you.

It will actually be a bit of a shock to me if one of them isn't on the final roster. I don't know why they fell to the 6th round, but I thought both of them were more mid round guys who could stick on the roster vs Harlow/Isidora.

Right now the roster probably falls...
Humphries
Beachum
Hudson
Pugh
Hernandez
Murray

then you have...

Josh Jones
Sean Harlow
Lecitus Smith
Marquis Hayes
Danny Isidora
Josh Miles
Koda Martin

...battling for the last two or three spots.

Probably Smith and Jones.
This is year 3 for Jones and he should be ready. If not then he should be gone

That's exactly what concerns me is calling the protection coverages. I am totally fine if this is just the first steps for prepping the guy with tutelage which might be present with Hudson... but sort of edgy if he's our backup this year, and why I hope they sign Price

I like Murray as a cheap swing backup, but I think he will struggle to make the roster to save some cap and because he has struggled to stay healthy.

This. He saves $2.5m on the cap. Unless he significantly outperforms everyone else that can play RG for less I would think he's a strong candidate to move on.

He should have some minor trade value too as he can play all across the line except C.

There is zero reason to have any faith in a 6th or 7th round pick in the Keim era.
