We may lose him after next season.
Slot safeties are really valuable in the modern NFL.
Love this pick. His draw back is that he's not a plus run defender, but he's one of the best slot defenders in college football.
Jalen T. should be in the mix in the nickle right off the bat.
The Cardinals will be waiver wire watching very closely for a vet S pick up in final cuts this year, mtl.
We already have 2 veteran S on the team.
Mtl to look to replace Ford with someone with starting experience for protection if either of the starters goes down. Ford is just OK. Hasen't stood out too much.
They go into the season with 5 safteys.
I'd say they've already made provisions to move on from him after the season.
This echos what I have heard and read. He can be an option as a nickel CB which can enable Baker to stay at S as much as possible.
Our safety group looks really good on paper for a team that is rebuilding our depth.
DJ Swearinger (7th yr)
Budda Baker (3rd yr)
Rudy Ford (3rd yr)
Deionte Thompson - R
Jalen Thompson - R
Josh Shaw (size/speed vet) (5th yr)
This was from Bordow's projected 53 a few weeks ago.
I am guessing they all make it but when Peterson comes back week 7 Jones is out
DB (10) Patrick Peterson, Robert Alford, Byron Murphy, Budda Baker, D.J. Swearinger, Tramaine Brock Sr., Josh Shaw, Rudy Ford, Chris Jones, Deionte Thompson
Peterson will not count against the 53-man roster during his six-week suspenion, so it won’t be a surprise if Keim picks up a cornerback off the waiver wire. There also could be some movement at the bottom of this list. Shaw likely makes it as a slot corner with Murphy moving to the outside while Peterson is out, but Jones is by no means a lock. Thompson, the team’s fifth-round draft choice out of Alabama, makes it as a special-teams player.
The Thompson Twins!
I’m dead last
So now, after several years of stockpiling "The Best Available Wiiliams" and "The Best Avaiable Johnsons", we're now collecting "The best available Thompsons."
I didn't know that this pick was the final part of the Rosen trade
All in all, we thought the Cardinals got a steal in the 20-year-old safety. With his biggest knock at the moment being his size, another year in a weight room could have done wonders for his draft stock, but even without that we still would have been willing to add the safety to any roster in the NFL prior to the fifth round. Given the success rate of fifth-rounders leaguewide, adding the player who led all college safeties in forced incompletions last season is well worth the risk.
I like the pick but he did get busted for something ...so easy on the kool aid steal pick for now
