    Have you seen his drafts? And the overall talent of the team the past 2 years? Keim certainly deserves credit for this offseason, but he's also the reason we've drafted in the top 10 in consecutive drafts.

    Media and ex teammates seem to believe covering TE's is a strength for him while fans of the team think the opposite. I guess we shall see next season for ourselves which one is true.

    I could see a trade back and just taking BPA and that might be a WR.

    Right now they are plugging every hole they have with either a starter from last year or a free agent.

    I am on the Wirfs train but the Kirk / Johnson / Butler / Isabella might all just be replacement level receivers.

    It’s got to be OT... They need to protect Murray at all cost.

    If we take a WR in the first I will scream bloody murder. Can't do it.

    25. OLB De’Vondre Campbell, Atlanta Falcons
    2019 Salary: $2,166,382

    Where he will sign: Philadelphia Eagles

    One of the more underrated linebackers in the NFL, De’Vondre Campbell will get his first opportunity to cash in on a big-money deal this offseason. It just makes sense for that money to come out of the Atlanta Falcons’ pockets, right?


    Well, in case you weren’t aware, the Falcons don’t exactly have a plethora of cap space to throw around this offseason. In fact, it looks like they’re actually over the 2020 cap at this moment, meaning they’ll need to make some tough decisions and let people walk when March rolls around. That’s why I’m predicting that Campbell won’t return to Atlanta.

    Instead, I could see the Philadelphia Eagles scooping him during 2020 NFL free agency. They clearly have a need at linebacker after losing Jordan Hicks last offseason and currently sporting Kamu Grugier-Hill and Nathan Gerry in starting roles. It’s clear an upgrade or two is needed, and Campbell certainly fits the bill.

    The Minnesota product is an outstanding athlete who flies around the field, and is a plus pass rusher for a linebacker. Considering all of the areas of concern the Eagles need to address this offseason, it would be a great start to the retooling if they could land Campbell.

    I wonder if these last two LB signings mean anything for Reddick's future here.

    Maybe scheme change and moving him inside permanently will help him more in coverage...Doesn't look like he was super awesome with pass rush, so Cards can just take that off his plate and let him concentrate on inside LB.

    Campbell is a big upgrade over Joe Walker.

    All the major holes have been filled, now the Cardinals can truly go BPA.

    Nice addition, probably playing in a bad defense plagued with injuries didn't help him, but he still 26, is 1 year deal so I'm sure I will do his best to get a long term contract next season

    *He ran 4.58 at combine
