Unless there's a QB left on the board, I can't see the incentive for any team to move up. And any other player possibly coveted by another team, we can use.
There are always teams in love with some players
If the Cardinals are willing to trade they ll get a partner, giving a third and fourth won't be an excessive expense

It takes two to tango.

And, as said, I can't imagine there's a player someone wants, other than a QB at #16, that we don't need.

Don't give up quality for quantity.

My board at 16. (no order right now)

Jamar Chase
Jaylen Waddle
Kyle Pitts
Penei Sewell
Rashawn Slater
Pat Surtain II
Jaycee Horn
Greg Newsome

Now, some position may require additional moves in FA to fill out the roster more than others, but I feel these players all have grades that make them a first round value. Newsome might be the only player who people could argue is a reach at 16, but I feel he is a first rounder, plays a premium position, fills a need, and the drop off after him is significant. No need to try to be happier than happy sometimes.

Outside of that, any sort of top 100 pick would be worth moving down.

I omitted Farley as I can't take on the risk at 16.

I omitted AVT because of our roster and I feel he is in a different tier than Sewell and Slater.

No defensive front 7 players feel like they are worth it without trading back.

If Newsome is a reach, then he is a very, very slight reach. Lowest I see him dropping is 21.

I’d agree with your group, but surprised (a little) at devonta smith’s absence. I say “a little” bc his slight frame worries me, but if he’s good he’s likely a home run. I’d be a tad disappointed with Horn or newsome 16, but I’d get over it. I don’t think the 16 slot is an enviable position for us.

I understand Newsome, but why Horn?

Agreed. Ideally, off of his grade, you get him in the 20-25 range but I wouldn't risk it. Limited starts, injuries, and penalties in college push him down a bit in grade for me.

For me, and probably just me, I am not inclined to take a WR who has a similar skill set to Hopkins (in terms of how he wins) who is also an outlier in size.

I already have a 6'1 who can play everywhere and wins with precision route running. If I am looking to add a WR in round 1, I want a guy who can crush the underneath routes with RAC or can blow the roof off vertically. Again, my preference, but I like diverse WRs if I am spending top dollar or a high pick.

lets assume:

1. the Cards get one of the CBs they want at #16
2. Harris, Etienne and Williams go off the board early 2nd, Toney too


3. Do spend #48 on Rondale Moore?
