The Cardinals closed out the 2015 NFL draft with the pick of “Mr. Irrelevant,” choosing Louisville TE Gerald Christian. At 6-3 and 244, Christian is a little undersized as a true tight end but he could fit that H-back role that Bruce Arians likes to use at times. He had 32 catches for 384 yards and five touchdowns last season, and also has his degree. The Cards, with top tight ends John Carlson, Troy Niklas and Darren Fells, have an opening available on the roster.
And so the Cards go through the draft without taking an inside linebacker or cornerback.
