    AZ pick 8

    Mekhi Becton - OT
    School: Louisville | Year: Junior

    Adding DeAndre Hopkins and then drafting Becton increases the Cardinals' win-total projection by more than two Ws in my model. That's a really big jump. Becton's athleticism fits the projected pace of play in this Kliff Kingsbury/ Kyler Murray system very well.

    Murray couldn’t see over the giant Becton.

    Murray can't see over a single O-Lineman in the NFL or likely college for that matter.

    Id be ok with the pick depending on who we passed on. I think Bechton is the 2nd best OT behind Wills...who could go as early as #4.

    LOL! Hilarious! The Cards win total will increase by AT LEAST 2 just due to this free agency and the fact KM and KK aren't ROOKIES anymore!

    You can't teach 6'7 360 with 17% body fat.

    KM and KK growing are worth a win or two.
    Adding Philips, Kennard, Campbell, Allen and Alford and are worth a couple wins in just shoring up our D.
    Adding Hopkins and a punishing RT are worth two more.

    If healthy, we could push for the playoffs this year and make a serious run next year.

    Exactly. We were our defensive short comings away from winning 4-5 more games in 2019. This team will be in the hunt for a wild card in 2020. Yes I'm being optimistic but I see no reason not to be lol.

    Only someone like Cam or Flacco could.

    It's analytical projections everyone, it's not an exact science. If the guys we added in FA don't live up to their potential or get hurt we could very well lose a game more or two. I like the idea of upgrading the OL in draft since we really didn't do anything in FA to improve it.

    Time and again I read this guy has the highest ceiling of the OT's. Not sure how to feel about that. I am becoming more convinced we are going OT in first round. Not sure waiting till the third to make a pick for the D is the right thing.

    Massive OTs just tend to work out.

    Did Levi Brown under-perform in relation to his draft position...yes. But he was far from a bust. 79 games started at a premium position. Two playoff runs.
