Assuming Jones is gone (I believe he is) the Cards are in a tough spot. Several on the board have called for the return of Haason Reddick. He is certainly a consideration. He’s young enough for a decently long term contract and likely could be signed for about half the cost of re-signing Jones. He’s been sound as a pass rusher, but less so as a run stopper & pass defender. Then there’s the draft, my hope for Johnson has faded away. The Cards have too many needs to trade up high to get him. So who will likely be available. Karlafits, Mafe and Walker seem to be the leading candidates at this point. The Combine may give us a little insight. The evaluations are so scattered there may be others but my survey of trusted evaluators told me these guys were the most likely ones to be there at 23. After the combine, we’ll dig a little deeper.
