    And whether you agree or disagree with move...the current verdict is that it worked and that is the basis Washington would have to justify the move. Crazy to think this happens two years in a row, but all of the justifications are there.

    Keim was right.

    The mistake was Rosen. QB is just so important that it's worth spending two 1st rounds picks to get a good young one.

    Whatever it takes because nothing else really matters if the QB position isn't right.

    Greg Cosell thinks the Bama wrs are the top wrs in the draft. Jeudy still #1.

    Says he doesnt think Lamb can play on the outside and will instead be a slot guy.

    Obviously time will tell, but if we draft Lamb and he cant play outside...man not a good eval by us. Wouldnt be a problem if we didnt have a bunch of slot guys already.

    The Cardinals cannot get caught up in the whole 'Kyler and CeeDee were a dynamic duo in college', because when does one stop loading up with Sooners when we do not play in the Big XII. Now if they think Lamb is a better WR than Jeaudy independent of Lamb's affiliations, then yeah... draft him

    People said that about Rosen’s shoulder (I have) and Kyler’s frame. Both been relatively healthy in the pros.

    His injury was severe enough tovquestion whether he might ever play again. They are making a big deal about him no longer limping. He may go on to have a great career but I’d be very Leary.

    Agree..if they feel he's better than draft him.

    However, I dont want to see a situation where he's forced outside (cant win). We find out he's better in the slot, but Fitz/Kirk are already there so hes really not used to his full potential. It seems very Keim.

    Kyler, although didnt play a snap yet, vouched for Cody Ford and passed. So maybe they'll continue to draft the best available.

    Even though bias aside I wanted Ford as a G/RT as well.

    The analysis at the time was that either he had loss of blood flow to the hip long enough to cause permanent damage... or he didn't. And if he didn't, he'd heal fine. Now they're saying he didn't, so the "worst case scenario" from the day of the injury doesn't seem to be in play any longer. Not saying there's no risk or there won't be any lingering restrictions, but that's the medical analysis i've heard.

    I'm sure NFL GMs have looked into it very, very thoroughly, so if a team drafts him in the top 10, they must be convinced that he won't suffer significant long-term consequences.

    I get that. Just glad we aren’t in a position to make that decision.

    This is a very realistic prediction for the first 10 picks as things currently stand

    1 - Bengals - Joe Burrow - QB
    2 - Washington - Tua Tagovailoa - QB
    3 - Detroit - Chase Young - EDGE
    4 - Giants - Derrick Brown - DL
    5 - Dolphins - Justin Herbert - QB
    6 - Chargers - Jordan Love - QB
    7 - Panthers - Jeffrey Okudah - CB
    8 - Cardinals - Jedrick Wills - OT
    9 - Jaguars - Javon Kinlaw - DL
    10 - Browns - Mekhi Becton - OT

    Do you see Wills as a good RT and eventually a LT. I am only asking because I do value your critique of a player, though I seem to favor Wirfs as a RT selection for a trading scenario. Really it makes no sense to harp too much on right or left because a defense moves their pass rushers around to take an advantage... again, this might just be your opinion of what the Cardinals might do and at this point if it was up to you who would you get

    If 4 QB's in the first 10 is 'very' realistic, let's see if we can drop to 11 and take Simmons.

    i am pounding the table for a OT, but Simmons is a unicorn and is my pick in this situation
