NFL Draft Winner #3: Arizona Cardinals

Matt Leinart. Let me repeat….Matt Leinart. That in and of itself is enough to call this a good draft for the Cardinals.Cards They got a QB at the #10 who many scouts have declared is the best long term QB in the draft this year. Had he come out last year, he would have been #1. He is a winner, and has the other pieces already in place around him on the offense. Best of all, he gets to learn from an experienced veteran QB in Kurt Warner. Coach Green is a lucky man and if continues on this path, wouldn’t it be weird to see the Cardinals in the Super Bowl?

Two more guys Arizona picked up that really make this draft a successful one are Leonard Pope and Gabe Watson. Both are from winning programs, where high standards are maintained. Pope is a TE who has great hands and was a playmaker for Georgia the last year. Gabe Watson is a DE who has the ability to be a great NFL player, if he can maintain intensity. If Green can find a way to keep a fire lit under Watson, he will be a steal.

Add to these guys, Deuce Lutui. Lutui is a G who has played with Leinart at USC and is a good blocker. They need some help protecting the QBs back there, and this guy is a great addition to that unit.

  1. […] Edgerrin James is not only bringing his ability to tote the ol’ pigskin up and down the field, he is bringing veteran leadership. I thought Edge was great in Indianapolis, but for some reason, I am really rooting for him to excel in Arizona. Well, I guess I should say I’ll be rooting for the Arizona Cardinals to excel. Toss Matt Leinart and their receivers into the equation and you might have a decent team there. I like underdogs, they’re fun to pull for. But I would venture to say the Cardinals won’t be underdogs for long. arizona cardinals, edgerrin james, matt leinart, NFLGet SocialThese icons link to social bookmarking sites where readers can share and discover new web pages.
