Lamb is legit. My only concern with a WR at #8 is that there seems to be legit 1st round talents that will be there at #40...and that is not the case in other areas like ILB, DL, or CB.

If we go WR at #8, it is very possible that the BPA at #40, and maybe the 3rd round too is another WR, which we won't double up on...so that means we end up taking the lesser player??
If that happens, you trade down from 40 and pick up an extra pick.

Agree with others I don't think all the sacks were on the OL, they were on the scheme, and on Kyler being so young and never having played under any pass rush pressure before at OU.
Kyler was responsible for some sacks, but also bailed out the OL a ton of times.

He was the hardest QB to sack in 2019. That means there were lots of instances where he was avoiding pressure all on his own.

Oh I agree but it was really a tale of 2 seasons for that. At the beginning of the year he was running into sacks quite often. At the end of the year it was almost the exact opposite, he was making defenders look foolish at times.

Still not clear if you can run 4WR sets fairly often in the NFL, teams are going to come after your QB and hit him over and over.

I'm not saying we can't upgrade the OL if given the chance, of course, but one of the main reasons I want a WR with that pick is there are some really good ones this draft, and I think Kyler in the 2nd half of the season showed what he can do , with a year under his belt, another camp etc, I think the possibilities are endless, so giving him a Jeudy or Lamb that can get open and allow us to go downfield more, fun to think about.

I would add, i think there was a learning curve for the OL too, they had to get used to playing with Kyler, where's he going to be etc. I keep saying it with Humphries I actually didn't mind his penalties because I think he got it, Kyler is the future of this franchise, if you get beat and he's going to get hit, by all means grab the guy, tackle him if you have to, don't let a penalty scare you into allowing someone to get a clean hit on Kyler.

Rumor has it that if Becton is still there at 8, Cleveland will trade up to get him. Cleveland has an atrocious OL, so Cardinals should be talking to them even now.

When was the last time we saw a Cardinals receiver not named Legend make a catch like CeeDee did at the 4:40 mark?

My favorite play is at the 7:31 mark.

I hate to see td passes to wr that are open by 15 yards.

However in the highlight reel he made contested catch after contested catch.

I'm already convinced this is our pick so much so that I'll be absolutely shocked if we choose someone else (unless another team drafts Lamb before we have the chance).

Once again we’re hoping another team saves the Cards from themselves.

Agree. Plus - I think it's 60-40 he turns out to be a great pick. (but the 40 part of the deal scares me).

Lamb has a lot of Q in him. I’m an Anquan homer, and think we’ve been missing that kind of fire at the R position since he left. I have no problems taking Lamb. He won’t be around in any trade down scenario.
