    I didn't see this coming. What does it mean at #8?

    Maybe a trade down.

    Adding a defensive lineman might be the way to go. Trade down and take Kinlaw.

    Really allows a BPA draft pick but doesn't exclude that being oline IMO

    Man, I sure hope Simmons, Okudah, or Brown drops.

    depending on this guy in any way shape or form or thinking this alleviates the need for a RT seems like Old Cardinals thinking. Last 3 years he's played in 12 of 48 games. Dude is Mr. Glass. Hope they didn't give him anything more than Vet Min.

    What it makes me wonder is if he got an offer from another team, and while we would have liked to wait until after the draft to bring him back, we have to be proactive.

    I'm a little grumpy because I think we're going to skip investing at OT now, but at least we're not solely relying on Justin Murray anymore.

    Keim is really having a good offseason hopefully that continues into the draft. Seems like a smart move keeping a good player when health allows, granted he hasn't been healthy as much as I'm sure he would like but maybe be gets some luck and a chip on his shoulder

    I've been seeing a few mocks with either Simmons or Brown being available at 8..

    Makes you wonder..

    We really won't know how these moves pan out until the season but it really seems like they have attempted to fill almost every hole prior to the draft. Early on WR, LB, DL and OL were probably the biggest glaring holes. Now it seems as if they have added 1-2 pieces at each spot. Also locked up Drake for at least a year.
    A lot will depend on health of some of these guys coming back from injury (Alford, Gilbert, Garcia, etc...). The draft really will be a situation where any production we get will be icing on the cake.

    Best part of the original tweet is "UP TO". Hopefully this guy stays healthy, but I'm not betting on it.

    It means no RT, possible trade down or BPA. I've said it many times. We can get by in 2020 with Justin Murray & Marcus Gilbert at RT. Didn't know for sure we would resign Gilbert when I first said it but I mentioned the possibility. If he can even get to 75% of his pro bowl form it will be great.

    Is Simmons really that much of a can't miss prospect?
